A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire a stake in “Fairhill Nature Reserve” - a spectacular reserve on the Cape Overberg coast, situated close to Hermanus.  The property totals 164 hectares and has direct access to 17km of pristine private beach-front on the adjacent Walker Bay Conservancy.  Just four of the six share blocks are available for purchase, exclusively through Pam Golding Properties.
The asking price of R4.95 million secures the buyer unlimited access to the entire reserve, and the opportunity to build a private home, subject to low-impact architectural guidelines.  These lean towards a typical Overberg farm-style home with contemporary influences.  Options include high-volume living areas, wraparound verandas, screed and stone definitions, and expansive glass to maximise the exquisite views and natural light.  Although these guidelines will be managed by an independent architectural firm, buyers may involve their own architects on the layout and design.  Zoning restrictions limit the size of the homes to 250sqm, while the guidelines will ensure the built environment blends seamlessly into the surrounding fynbos.
PGP’s area manager for the greater Hermanus area, Adrian Kuiper, says the farm is located just 20 minutes’ drive from Hermanus and five minutes from Gansbaai.  It also has access to a private tarred airstrip just North of Kleinbaai.  “This is a unique opportunity for nature-lovers to acquire total privacy in a spacious and protected environment, with outstanding coastal and mountain views,” he says.  “The current two owners will each retain a share block in the property company, and are offering the remaining four to like-minded investors.  Each owner will enjoy all-year-round access to the property, and as members of the greater conservancy, will also have traversing rights over the Walker Bay Conservancy, with access to the private beach.”
Fairhill has 32 resident Cape Eland with numerous smaller buck such as duiker and steenbok, as well as abundant bird life.
PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg regions, Annien Borg, says it is a unique offering:  “This share-block structure has had numerous successful precedents in South Africa, and offers both title and security.  It is a superb long-term investment opportunity, offering rare private access to a pristine beach, and a lifestyle of space, tranquillity and closeness to nature.  Strict guidelines will ensure that the unique character of the estate is maintained by compatible individuals who will appreciate its value and ensure it does not fall prey to over-development.”
Limited levies will apply to maintain the estates fences and fire-breaks, while the possibility of communal gardening and security services will be decided amongst the new owners.
