Riverside hideaway an alternative for holiday home buyers in Plettenberg Bay

While buyers may assume that Plettenberg Bay only offers seaside homes, Seeff agent Alet Ollemans says that homes on the banks of the Keurbooms River that runs through the town, offers another alternative for holiday home buyers.

Whether it's for the love of fishing, bird watching, being surrounded by nature or just a waterside lifestyle, there a real wow factor to the homes situated here says the agent.

The exclusive Rivertides security estate here offers homes typically priced in the upper millions says the agent. An example of the sought-after lifestyle on offer is a four-storey architectural home, known as ‘Moonshadow' that offers ultra-spacious living and luxurious finishes. It boasts 700sqm of floor space with a private lift. It is nestled in an elevated position on a coastal dune at the lagoon end and is surrounded by ancient Milkwood trees. The beach lies a short walk away to the east. The property has direct river access and a private boat mooring and is on the market for R15 million.

Balconies on all of the levels offer stunning views of the river and Tsitsikamma Mountains. Large stacking doors connect the living rooms with a wrap-around entertainment veranda on the lower level. The large living areas include a lounge with a wood-burning fireplace and an adjacent games room with a pool table. There is also a wine room. The kitchen has a separate cold-room, pantry and scullery and an adjacent breakfast area, also with a fireplace. The residence includes five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The main suite has a lounge/library with a fireplace and private balcony. There is also a separate one bedroomed flat-let with a lounge and kitchenette on the ground floor. The property includes a double garage with an additional bedroom that could serve as staff accommodation or a teenage den.

Plettenberg Bay has an enviable, almost tropical climate and a lush location on the Cape coastline says the agent. It lies on a dramatic rocky peninsula with the Tsitsikamma Mountains as a backdrop along with unpolluted rivers, lagoons and estuaries and golden beaches. From polo at Kurland to yachting at the Keurbooms River mouth and marina and a wealth of water and land-based leisure activities, the town remains a firm favourite with local and foreign holiday makers. The wealthy generally own holiday homes here and it is a popular retirement destination.
