Brighton Beach property in KZN offers great lifestyle or investment opportunity

The Bluff is situated between Durban city centre and Amanzimtoti, and has everything going for it - prime South Coast position, lush vegetation and endless beaches, with beachfront villas offering ocean views to rival those of Hout Bay and Clifton at a fraction of the cost.

The Bluff is known as the ‘friendly suburb', and its Brighton Beach is home to one of the top ten best surf destinations in the world, Cave Rock, an unspoilt beach and tidal pool, with many rock pools to explore and excellent diving and fishing.

With its great situation and year round summery weather the area attracts many visitors, and offers great investment potential. Currently on the books of Seeff Bluff is an excellent example of an investment opportunity in the shape of a spacious and modern home with unbeatable views directly over Brighton Beach. Priced at R3.95m, this property is set on a plot  and includes a main house plus three fully equipped self-catering units and the facilities to create two more units from its total of 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.

Rob Scrooby, Manager of Seeff Bluff explains: "This property is currently run as a guest house - the owners occupy the main house and let out the three units. A unit which is currently used as an office could become a fourth income-producing unit, while the fourth bedroom of the main house has own entrance and bathroom and could be used as a fifth such unit. This property is ideal for someone wanting to run a guesthouse, or for a retired couple looking for a lifestyle property with an income. There is currently a huge shortage of self-catering accommodation on the Bluff, and the new port development taking place at the old airport site will also increase demand for accommodation since contractors will need to house workers nearby."

The main house is 190sqm in extent and has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge. Unit 1 (85sqm) has two bedrooms, an open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchen, and balcony with sea views. Unit 2 (60sqm) is on the ground floor and has one bedroom plus open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchen. Unit 3 (52sqm) has one bedroom plus open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchen, with a spacious deck off the lounge with sea views. Unit 4 is identical to unit three; it has no views and is currently used as an office.

Adds Scrooby: "This is a perfect example of the great value for money that is available on the Bluff, and this property could give the right buyers a wonderful lifestyle. The locals are friendly and there is a relaxed atmosphere, which is enhanced by the tropical ambience. This property's views are pretty unbeatable, so the owners will also get to enjoy the sea vista with spectacular sunsets, dolphins at play and seasonal whale watching, while also earning an income from their property."

With protected open spaces and no high-rise buildings to spoil the coastline, Brighton Beach maintains an environmental awareness that has prevented the area from becoming just another concrete holiday town. It is an accessible 20-minute drive to Durban city centre, sports and soccer stadiums, Wilson's Wharf, the Botanical Gardens and uShaka Marine World. The area is also convenient for the business executive, as it is close to the city's southern industrial hub of Prospecton, Jacobs and Mobeni as well as the harbour.
