Village is the gateway to the Sani Pass in the Drakensberg

A large, renovated mansion in picturesque Himeville is a major attraction at Ian Wyles Auctioneers’ multi-property sale on Wednesday at The Durban Country Club at 11am.

Andrew Giddy, Ian Wyles property manager, says the company will also offer properties sourced from deceased estates and prime property in Pietermaritzburg.

The Himeville house is in Thomas Street, overlooking a dam and the spectacular southern Drakensberg mountains. It is next door to the Himeville Hotel and near the Himeville Nature Reserve. Himeville is about 130km from Pietermaritzburg and the gateway to the Sani Pass.

The home on offer has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study on the ground floor. Stairs lead to a studio loft. The open-plan kitchen has chrome handles and black wall tiles. An enclosed sunroom opens on to the garden through wide glass doors to a paved area for outdoor entertaining.

The property – on land of more than 4000m² – has automated garage doors, a generator, solar panels and underfloor heating. The property is ready for occupation.

Ian Wyles has also been instructed to sell vacant land in Pentrich Industrial Park at 48 White Road, Masons Mill in Pietermaritzburg. The zoning of the 2700m² land is “general industrial”.

“The site is fully serviced and one of the last vacant plots in the area. Several blue chip businesses operate near the property, which is just 3km from the University of KwaZulu-Natal and within walking distance of a bus route. With the site also bordering a busy residential area, the potential for student accommodation is very good.”

Bidders at the auction will have to provide a refundable deposit of R50000 with Fica documents as identification. On the fall of the hammer, the auctioneer requires a minimum 5% deposit, as well as the buyer’s commitment and balance of the purchase price within 30 days.

Prospective buyers can view the properties by appointment.
