Resort Development Overview

 

. . . . . Invest in a Holiday Property

The resort development has twelve subdivided stands (Resort Zone-II) for holiday homes for sale under full title. These twelve stands are widely distributed across the property, ensuring privacy and wide open spaces around each stand.

Three of these stands have historic homes on them intended for restoration.  These are the “Grasdakhuis”, “Koos Ellis se Huis” and the “Boonste Huis”.

The remaining nine stands will have new holiday homes.

Another twelve holiday homes will be distributed over 3 Resort Zone I clusters. One of these twelve holiday homes is also an historic cottage – “Piet Spogter se Huis”.

This historic cottage is located on one of the three cluster stands. The remaining eleven cluster holiday homes will be spread over the other two cluster stands with five and six units respectively. Both these cluster stands are suited to the building of boutique hotels or tourist lodges.

The remainder of the property is rezoned to nature reserve (Open Space-III) and will be registered as a contract nature reserve, placing it under control of the Protected Areas Act, Act 57 of 2003, bringing unprecedented support for its conservation objectives.

Central resort facilities to be built will include a swimming pool, office, reception and a meeting venue.

The historic school building was restored to serve as a museum.  It will focus on the cultural-historic aspects of the property (Elandskloof) and the Witteberg area.

The 15 investors will also, through the Homeowners Association,  be the joint owners of the central resort facilities, the staff accommodation, the museum and the water supply system.

All homeowners will be members of the Home Owners Association, which will manage the nature reserve on their behalf.
