Properties along the West Coast have become hot property in recent years with the COVID-19 pandemic only speeding up the semigration trend.
The likes of Paternoster have seen a sharp increase in property prices so we thought we would consider something a little closer to home.
You’re looking at around 80 kilometres from the Cape Town CBD to Jakkalsfontein, meaning you can duck out on Friday at 3PM and be a few sheets to the wind by the time sunset arrives.
Jakkalsfontein is 20 kilometres by car to Yzerfontein which may ring more of a bell.
Anyway, let’s take a look at this four-bedroom seaside home listed on Property24 for R7 million:
This lovely home epitomises all that you expect from a beach home, spectacular sea views with the added advantage of being in a 1700 hectare fynbos nature reserve with long walks along the 4 km white pristine beach and wide open spaces of the reserve…
This lovely beach home has been maintained to perfection. This is the jewel of Jakkalsfontein. All finishes speak of perfect taste; this is an extraordinary home with a warm and welcome character.
You’re nicely tucked away inside Jakkalsfontein Nature Reserve.
Thanks to Google and the reserve’s website I can tell you that caracal, African wild cat, Cape fox, bat-eared fox, and African clawless otter have been spotted in the area.
You may also see grysbok, duiker, and steenbok and 153 bird species.
That’s not the information you were after, is it?
Go ahead and take a look around the house:
More from that write-up:
The living area, kitchen and dining areas are open plan with generous spaces and a natural flow for easy entertainment . Glass sliding doors all round lead onto a sea facing patio from all major rooms, with an outdoor built-in braai (gas) for those lovely summer day. An oversize gas fireplace in the lounge adds to the warmth on cold winter evenings…
This house is designed for relaxing and watching the ever-changing ocean.
Sit on the patio, stare at the ocean, and contemplate the meaning of life.
Who are we, why are we here, and what is the meaning of all this?
