Luxury holiday living at secure South Coast golf estate
A luxury residence in KwaZulu-Natal’s prestigious Selborne Park Golf Estate, just outside the popular holiday destination of Pennington, will be auctioned by Ian Wyles Auctioneers at the Durban Country Club as part of a major multi-property sale on August 23.
The modern double-storey semi-detached townhouse of 166m² to be sold features: Three spacious bedrooms, all en suite. Open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge.
A large patio and deck overlooking Selborne’s renowned indigenous plants and wildlife. Andrew Giddy, property manager at Ian Wyles Auctioneers, says the sectional title property represents a “wonderful opportunity for a family to purchase a fantastic holiday home” in the well-established and prestigious golf estate.
The 80 hectare Selborne Park Golf Estate has an 18-hole 72-par championship golf course, rated by Golf Digest Magazine as one of the top 100 courses in Southern Africa. It has been called the “Augusta of South Africa”.
Luxury residences and walking trails, frequented by duiker, bushbuck and dassies, surround the picturesque course. The bird life is prolific with water birds regularly seen in the estate’s ponds and a wide variety of other birds in the dense forest and pristine vegetation around the golf course. Located in the heart of the estate is the 4-star Selborne Estate Hotel, Spa and Wellness Centre, as well as a popular hotel restaurant.
Other facilities in the estate include swimming pools, tennis courts and a private beach area with its own swimming pool and lapa protected by security guards. Selborne also has a chapel for wedding celebrations, and a well-equipped pro shop and golfers’ lounge, bar and informal restaurant. “This is a rare opportunity to buy on auction such an exclusive, and totally secure, property in one of the South Coast’s most popular residential estates.
“An auction is the best route to determine the actual value of a property at any particular point and, in this case, offers the buyer a rare opportunity to add an impressive holiday home to his or her property portfolio.
“There is strong demand from holiday-makers for rented villas at Selborne Park throughout the year with several property agents handling rentals,” Giddy says. Potential bidders would have to lodge a refundable deposit of R50 000 to attend the auction, with Fica documents required for identification purposes. Viewing is by appointment.
