Stellenbosch Mountain Retreat, Helshoogte Pass, Stellenbosch

Property Description

SOLD FOR R17 556 000

LIQUIDATION


Stellenbosch in the Cape Winelands is home to some of the world’s finest wines and the Stellenbosch Wine Route is the oldest in the country, with wine farms in the area dating back to the 1670’s. The site is located opposite the Neil Ellis Winery on the outskirts of Stellenbosch in an elite neighbourhood.

Tokara Wine Estate, Delaire Graff Estate, the Klein Drakenstein Valley and the historic Boschendal Estate to the North are high quality developments on an established wine and tourism route between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

Stellenbosch and Paarl are also home to some of the country’s best educational institutions and are increasingly sought after as locations for secure residential estates.

The site’s position high up on the slopes of Botmaskop on the Helshoogte Road between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, offers breathtaking views of the winelands, the Cape Peninsula and on a clear day Table Mountain. The site is traversed by a valley and enjoys unencumbered views of the Western side of the majestic Simonsberg range. It is located on the edge of the Jonckershoek Valley and the fynbos biome, and as such has direct access to un-paralleled natural cycling and hiking trails.

This 30.69 Hectare property, zoned Resort Zone 2, is approved for a development scheme comprising 8 800 m² of bulk. Over the years, much effort has gone into securing development rights and it is said that these rights will likely never again be obtained for a property of this nature. All electrical connections are complete, water connections approved and the property is ready to be developed.

The existing approved development allows for 15 four-roomed lodges, a hotel comprising 10 suites as well as a conference and function centre, restaurant and associated infrastructure. There is also a completed access road from the R310 and rough cut roads to the upper reaches of the site.

This rare opportunity offers a spectacular setting for a world class development.
