Graced by the sea

Renowned for its peaceful rural atmosphere, Kommejtie residents are comfortable with living at their own pace. The quaint village which is situated on the western coast of the Cape Peninsula is synonymous with beautiful ocean views and a relaxed lifestyle, says Susan Watts, General Manager of RE/MAX Living, whose office services the Cape’s Atlantic Seaboard.

She notes that the village has no aspirations of becoming a busy business centre and the relaxed holiday atmosphere is what has drawn so many of the residents to the area. “The area celebrated its centenary in 2003; however, this only really marks when the first house was built in Kommetjie. For a long time the area was regarded as a holiday destination and a place where people from the surrounding areas would go for picnics and camping trips. While a lot of development has happened in the region and more properties have been built over the last hundred years, the village has still managed to maintain its original charm and character.

Although a large number of the houses are still holiday homes, many residents have fallen in love with the village and have chosen to make it their permanent home,” says Watts.

Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says that many property buyers in South Africa are choosing to purchase homes in areas that offer unique lifestyle options. Ocean fronting and facing properties are among the most sought-after and often achieve good investment results in the long term.

Watts notes that along with the growing number of permanent residents in the area over the years, property in Kommejtie has become more sought-after. One specific property known as Graced by the Sea - a beach front house with panoramic views of the Cape Peninsular - has particular prominence. This home was previously built and owned by a well known adventurer. The current owners, a prominent family in Cape Town, have chosen to sell the large double-storey, five-bedroom home because their children are now in University. This important and significant home is currently being marketed by RE/MAX Living for the price of R25 million

This magnificent beach house is in a prime position situated in the promontory. There are completely unobstructed views with the ocean directly in front of the property only a few feet away. One can sit on the veranda and hear the waves crashing while enjoying the mountain views across the sea. Set on a double stand of 1,107m2 with more than 400m2 under roof, there is more than enough house to enjoy. Aside from the veranda, the home boasts solid yellow wood  flooring throughout, teak counters, a triple garage as well as a lavish sized outdoor pool and entertainment area.

“If you are looking for a secure, private estate with ample room to entertain your friends and family while enjoying the relaxed lifestyle that Kommejtie has to offer, then this is your dream property,” Watts concludes.
