Huge potential for the developer with this large, 76.2 Hectare property in this prestigious area - the last of the big one's. Two adjacent properties to be sold together. One property offers a house, cottage and sheds, the other is vacant land. The house and cottage require renovation, the main shed is over 500m, under roof with a second smaller shed.
The property is zoned Conservancy - suitable for a nature reserve, agricultural land, riding stables or zoological garden. Should the new owner wish to develop into cluster housing, the number of units shall be limited to 1 unit per 2 hectares, with slopes in excess of 1:3 and valuable natural areas not included in the area calculations when determining the number of units which may be permitted on the property. There is some DMOSS on both stands.
The area has plenty of indigenous trees and grasses and small wildlife - duiker, wildpig, civet and plenty of birdlife. You really do have a feel of living in the country with the natural tranquillity, yet just a 5 minute drive to the Highway. The land is somewhat overgrown (to protect the wildlife) and the gradient is variable - sloping and flat and you might need your walking boots to view.
The Alverstone Wildlife park, just a few minutes drive away is a popular venue for family picnics, braais, birthday parties and safe walking trails where one can view herds of blesbok, duiker, impala, blue wildebeest, zebra and small wildlife. Phezulu Safari Park is also nearby, as well as popular restaurants and tourist shops to entertain your guests.
The Upper Highway offers many well renowned private and government schools, sports clubs - tennis, rugby, bowls, squash, athletics, polo grounds and riding schools, malls, mountain bike tracks and much more - away from the humid coastal climate. Alverstone is approximately midway between Pietermaritzburg and Durban and lends itself to the ultimate country lifestyle, yet just a short distance to all amenities, the Highway, excellent schools and the Hillcrest Private Hospital.
Please call to view.
