Double-storey St Helena house is perfect for investment, or as a permanent or holiday home
A low-maintenance, double-storey house in St Helena Bay will be urgently sold without reserve on April 21, offering prospective buyers an opportunity to purchase an investment property, or a permanent or holiday home, at an affordable price, and enjoy the sought-after West Coast lifestyle.
Dan van Zyl, auctioneer and owner of Ikaya Properties, which will conduct the auction, says the property forms part of a deceased estate and needs attention, but he believes this will give buyers an opportunity to purchase a home priced within their budget, or for investors to acquire a property in an area where there is demand for rental and holiday accommodation.
He describes the property, which is located at the top of a hill and offers stunning views, as “a bargain hunter’s dream.”
Situated on an 802m² level stand, the house has four bedrooms.
“The main bedroom with en-suite bathroom is on the ground floor, where there is also an open-plan kitchen/dining room, a scullery and a laundry, an inside built-in braai and a large patio,” he says.
The top floor houses the other three bedrooms, each with its own balcony, as well as two bathrooms and a living room/ studio/ TV room.
The property, which also has a single garage and is fully walled, is next to a greenbelt that is home to caracals, brown hyenas, small game and other wildlife.
St Helena Bay is 90 minutes’ drive from Cape Town and 20 minutes away from Vredenburg’s West Coast Mall.
The auction will be held on site at 27 Blueberry Drive, Blueberry Hill, St Helena Bay, at 11am on April 21.
The property may be viewed from 9am on the day of the auction. Bidders must provide an identity document and proof of residence for registration.
There are no related registration fees.
The conditions of sale require that a 10% deposit and the auctioneer’s commission be paid on the day of the auction, by means of electronic funds transfer or bank guaranteed cheque, or as per arrangement with the auctioneer prior to the auction.
Van Zyl says although the property will be sold without a reserve price, the sale will be subject to approval by the executor of the estate.
All outstanding rates and taxes will be paid by the estate.
