Plot with river access and views!!
For the last 25 years Abbotsford has been a sought after country living area. The upper reaches of the Nahoon River run along its boundary and it is in this area where the river transitions from salt to fresh water. The suburb itself is nestled in a natural basin and there are spectacular views of the mountain krantzes from the riverside properties. The suburb has a distinct village atmosphere. Abbotsford properties have easy access to the North East Expressway which transverses the City as well as the main N2 highway which leads in and out of East London
Because of its beautiful setting, an Abbotsford property affords the bird watcher ample opportunity to feast their eyes on most forest and coastal bird species. It is common to see pairs of Fish Eagles flying over the upper reaches of the Nahoon River, or a group of white cormorants roosting in overhanging trees. The river side properties, together with the leafy nature of the suburb with its attractive trees and large erven make this suburb a highly desirable real estate investment.
There is a Christian based High School in the suburb and a short distance away, Merrifiield Private School which offers an IEB curriculum and many extra-curricular subjects, such as Spanish, German, archery and horse riding. Other major schools in East London such as Stirling High School and Hudson Park High School are easily accessible, well within a ten minute drive. Abbotsford sports a tennis club within the suburb.
As some Abbotsford properties have river access their values can be relatively high. There are also a few older modest homes which speculators are buying to upgrade and extend.
The homes in this area will range from R1 000 000 to R 10 000 000, with vacant erven selling from R800 000 to R1 650 000. Modest townhouses consisting of two to three bedrooms, garage and two bathrooms will sell for R900 000 to R1 450 000. During the past ten years, some excellent townhouse complexes have been built as well as riverside cluster developments.
Abbotsford is primarily a residential suburb. The main road has a Spar Shop and you can find excellent facilities such as a baker, butcher, veggie shop and even a veterinarian. There is a local liquor store, a small community pub, a coffee shop and video outlet all for convenience whilst bigger shopping centres are a short drive away.
Abbotsford, with all its allure and charm is a highly sought after area. Abbotsford property owners have a short cut to Hemmingways Mall, the twelfth largest shopping centre in South Africa. This Mall boasts some of the most select and fashionable boutique stores, eateries and entertainment facilities. Abbotsford is also in close proximity by road to the Beacon Bay shopping precinct.
