Rare purchase opportunity in exclusive West Coast Resort

One of only three remaining vacant plots has come onto the market in Gonnemanskraal, the scenic private resort located on the Cape West Coast, just north of Jacobsbaai

The resort is highly sought-after for its unspoiled natural environment and prime seafront location, but opportunities to purchase are few and far between, with just one property changing hands since February 2012. Pam Golding Properties (PGP) now has the exclusive mandate to market a 2000sqm beachfront plot, with a rare north-facing aspect, priced at R3.3 million.

PGP’s area manager for the West Coast, Stephanie Wynne Cole, says Gonnemanskraal is an exclusive enclave, with current owners including a number of Cape wine farmers and business executives. “Strict building guidelines have ensured an attractive design theme of traditional white-plastered homes with gables,” she says, “which blend in unobtrusively with the surrounding environment. Every care has been taken to preserve the pristine surroundings, including a wealth of fynbos and strandveld vegetation, as well as rich bird and animal life.”

While ancient history may imbue the surroundings, the resort itself is only 26 years old, and consists of just 33 properties. The land was first purchased by the Morkel family for private use in 1983, and their family holiday home was built there in 1985. Two years later, they portioned off 34.8ha for development, and the resort was launched to market. The initial phase of four homes was sold at just R160 000 per property – but 26 years on, the most recent sale on the estate saw one of its smaller homes change hands at R4.2 million, in February 2012.

Just three erven remain undeveloped, including the property currently for sale. The rest of the plots boast attractive and well-finished homes, fronting onto a pristine coastline with several sheltered bays and safe waters for scuba-diving and wind-surfing, as well as crayfishing in season. Residents also have access to a communal tennis court as well as a network of walking paths. The resort has a single secure entrance point and a security guard on duty at night, as well as regular patrols by the private security firm contracted by many home-owners.

“This beachfront plot provides an opportunity to acquire one of the very best erven in the entire development,” says Wynne Cole, “and to enjoy the beauty and charm of the West Coast lifestyle in a completely unspoiled environment. Given the rare availability of property in Gonnemanskraal, and the huge appeal of this development to a discerning market, we anticipate that the property will attract significant interest.”
