Waterfront living in a tropical setting on the banks of the Tzaneen Dam has captured the imagination of homebuyers in this lowveld town.
Two developments here are being marketed by the local Aida franchise and units are selling like hot cakes, says agency principal Lidèll Botha.
"Only a few units are still available in the Golden Acres Waterfront Estate that consists of 100 townhouses and 31 stands varying between 2300 and 4000sqm," she says. "Investors from Gauteng and overseas buyers have shown particular interest."
The development offers secure living and owners will have access to a boathouse, tennis and squash courts, a swimming pool, gym and clubhouse.
Modern facilities, including shopping centres, restaurants, schools and a private hospital are in close proximity.
"But the setting is the most attractive feature of the development," Botha says. "It overlooks the dam with the scenic Magoebaskloof mountains, part of the northern Drakensberg range, in the background."
She expects that units in the recently launched Heritage Village, next to Golden Acres, will also sell fast. "The development was launched in January and is attracting enquiries from buyers around the country."
Heritage Village offers 41 full title units and five building stands varying in size from 611sqm to 882sqm. Buyers can choose from four building plans in the colonial style.
Botha says part of the developments' success is the easy access to various attractions in the area. "The surrounding mountains offer trout fishing, horse riding, off-road trails, and hiking. Tzaneen also boasts two golf courses as well as a tarred landing strip with landing lights, making it easy for Gauteng buyers to fly in for a weekend getaway."
