Sold - in three days

The buyers, former residents of Botswana and the USA, were already living in South Africa at the time of the purchase. They intend to build their dream home on the property, which backs onto the Table Mountain National Park.

PGP’s area manager for the South Peninsula, Sandi Gildenhuys, says the price of close to R10 million may seem high for vacant land, but is actually comparable to other sales within De Goede Hoop Estate.  “This is one of the most sought-after addresses in Noordhoek,” she says, “highly regarded for its magnificent location on the eastern slopes of Chapman’s Peak, with views across the entire valley and False Bay.  

It has extensive security including 24-hour patrols, and lies conveniently adjacent to the Noordhoek Farm Village with its gourmet restaurants and popular specialty shops.  Equestrians in particular love the estate for its extensive bridle path, and each of the 43 properties has permission for a stable if desired.  There is also a private access path for beach riding on nearby Long Beach.  Those who prefer to stay on foot can take advantage of the extensive network of footpaths which runs through a 300ha private Fynbos Reserve surrounding the estate, as well as the many hiking routes in the near vicinity, including Chapman’s Peak, Noordhoek Ridge and Silvermine.”

This particular site was originally part of a consolidated 15 acre property being offered for sale in the upper section of the estate – but the decision was made to subdivide it from that cluster and sell it as a stand-alone erf.  Gildenhuys says the remaining 10 acres is still for sale at R27 million, including a magnificent homestead known as “Noodhoek Villa”, set amongst an exclusively indigenous garden.  

The neo-Roman-style home is designed around an open-air central courtyard and has a deep front veranda, enclosed by classical double columns.  The home offers four double-bedrooms, spacious entertainment areas and top-quality finishes, including solid oak floors and marble-tiled bathrooms.  The property also contains a separate manager’s house and a huge 10m x 30m swimming pool.  There is also an opportunity to buy the home’s bespoke furnishings and extensive gardening equipment at additional cost.

PGP’s MD for the Western Cape metro area, Laurie Wener, says values in De Goede Hoop Estate are relatively resistant to market fluctuations, due to the enduring demand for its prime location, iconic status and excellent security.  “It is no surprise that a plot could sell within three days,” she says, “particularly one in such an elevated position, right at the top of the estate where the views are at their very best.”
