Own your own home in popular retirement village “Kidbrooke Place”

Well-established Kidbrooke Place, located in the seaside village of Onrus, is one of the most popular and highly-regarded retirement villages along the Cape’s Whale Coast.

Consisting of just under 200 homes, the village offers a range of facilities such as a 34-bed frail care centre, shuttle service, library, swimming pool, 24 hour security and a cleaning service, as well as a restaurant serving nutritious meals to residents. The majority of properties are sold on a life-right basis – yet within the village, there are 12 full-title homes which are the ideal “stepping-stone” purchase for those who are reaching their retirement years, but still want to maintain a certain level of independence. Pam Golding Properties (PGP) currently has the sole mandate to market one of these rare homes, which is priced at R3.2 million.

PGP agent Louise Momberg says the property on offer is a four-bedroomed home occupying a sizeable plot of more than 1500sqm.  “The attractive home has lovely sea views, and a very manageable single-storey layout that is ideal for those approaching retirement age,” she says.  “The spacious living areas flow to a north-facing patio with built-in braai, an ideal space for entertaining even in inclement weather.  The neat and private landscaped garden is completely covered by computerised irrigation, meaning that there is no back-breaking gardening work to worry about.  A double garage, alarm system and satellite dish complete the picture of a comfortable and secure retirement home.  What makes this opportunity particularly special is that the buyers will have access to all of the village’s communal facilities, meaning that they can maintain their own private life, while still having access to on-site medical care, the camaraderie of village living, and a full catering service for those days when they don’t feel like cooking.  And by purchasing full title they can also circumvent the lengthy waiting list of up to 10 years which is currently in place for the life-right section of the village.”

PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg regions, Annien Borg, says Onrus is a very popular destination for retirees, due to its good infrastructure, scenic setting and small town atmosphere.  “At the same time its proximity to Hermanus, Cape Town and Somerset West means that residents can easily access major amenities such as shopping, hospitals and sports facilities, and are also easily accessible to their family members who live in those towns.  Kidbrooke Place itself is just five minutes from Onrus Beach and only a 10 minute drive to Hermanus. It’s the best of both worlds – small town living in a friendly community that is not too remote.”
