Retreat to your own island

If you’re looking for an escape from the stress of city life, what better place could there be than your very own island – a place to build your dream home and enjoy an idyllic lifestyle with your family and friends?
This is the promise of the Lady Hamilton Island, the only individually-owned island in the exclusive Royal Alfred Marina development in the Eastern Cape, which is currently on sale through Sotheby’s International Realty Port Alfred for R13,5 million.
Set in the estuary of the Kowie River, the marina is a millionaires’ playground consisting of five islands in total, and offers the ultimate in secure, luxury living “on the water”. Each home on the other four islands has at least 15m of private water frontage on to a series of canals giving access to the river and the sea.
Fully secured, the marina also has an upmarket clubhouse with pool and entertainment areas to accommodate residents’ functions, and tennis and squash courts for the exclusive use of residents and their guests.
Recently featured in the New York Times, the Lady Hamilton Island is made up of six of the original stands in the marina development that have been consolidated to create a private retreat 3863sqm in extent and perfect as a setting for your dream “island home”.
Other possibilities, says Heather Tyson, principal of Sotheby’s International RealtyPort Alfred, include building two or three homes to accommodate a whole family or group of friends on the island, or even selling some of the stands to a few other owners.
