Work begins on Kleimond harbour upgrade

Habour Road

Work has begun on the long-awaited upgrade of Kleinmond’s scenic harbour – and buyers wishing to be part of this bustling and character-filled precinct have the opportunity to purchase an affordably-priced apartment, right on the harbour’s edge. Pam Golding Properties (PGP) is marketing five completed units in “Harbour Road” at just R1.2 million, inclusive of VAT. The town lies on the Cape’s Whale Coast, between Gordon’s Bay and Hermanus.

PGP’s manager for the development, Louise Varga, says the harbour upgrade is the latest phase in a lengthy, multi-levelled development plan for the area, which has already seen the retail area around the harbour extended and upgraded, as well as the initial residential component being built. All five of the completed units are already in demand for holiday rentals, and it is anticipated that additional residential phases will be developed in the future, up to a maximum of 30 units per phase. “These 58sqm sectional title apartments are the ideal spot for a weekend getaway from Cape Town,” she says, “being just an hour’s drive from the city, with a spectacular sea-front setting, mountain views, and a bustling retail element alongside which offers restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and boutiques to explore. The harbour upgrade will further enhance the experience by creating improved facilities which will benefit both holiday-makers/water-sports enthusiasts and the local community.”

The Kleinmond harbour was built around 1940 and enjoyed its heyday during the fishing boom of the 1970’s, but had fallen into disrepair in the ensuing years. Now it is receiving a new lease on life, as developers Wharfside Developments Kleinmond oversee the repair of all breakwaters, dredging of the harbour bowl and upgrade of pedestrian access, as well as building a new jetty and stabilising the harbour walls. Two garages are being equipped for the NSRI and other emergency equipment, while the fish-scaling tables are being upgraded to be more user-friendly for fishermen and the fish-buying public alike.

“These upgrades are being carried out with immense respect for the heritage value of the harbour and its existing buildings,” says Varga, “and will have a very positive impact on the local community and especially the families who make their living from the sea. An environmental oversight specialist is also ensuring that all work is carried out with due respect for the surrounding environment.”

New development on Laaiplek Waterfront

Harbour’s Edge beach

A new residential development has been launched to market on the Cape West Coast, offering buyers the opportunity to acquire affordable beachfront property in a scenic and accessible location. “Harbour’s Edge” is being built right on the beachfront at Laaiplek, the quaint fishing harbour which lies adjacent to the town of Velddrif and the upmarket marina area of Port Owen, close to the mouth of the Berg River.  This location is only 145km from Cape Town, with Vredenburg being the nearest major town, 25km away.

The plot and plan development totals 2.5ha in size, and is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties (PGP). Prices range from R995 000 for a completed two-bedroomed home to R2.65 million for the largest three-bedroomed option. All prices are inclusive of VAT, with no transfer duties applicable.

PGP agent Aubrey Fourie says Harbour’s Edge will consist of a total of 67 residential units, nine of them occupying beachfront plots. “There is a wide range of plot and plan choices,” he says, “including six options for single storey homes and two for double-storey homes. The erven range in size from 250sqm to generous 440sqm, with the built footprint ranging from 116sqm to 154sqm homes. Eleven select plots will have complete free reign to design their own dream homes outside of these design guidelines.”

Fourie points out that the pricing is extremely competitive given the prime beachfront location. “There can be few places on the Cape coastline where one can buy a fully completed home on a beachfront plot, for under R2.75 million,” he says. “Every plot has some degree of either sea or harbour views, or both, and the building guidelines will ensure that these are not compromised.”

The location is not only a scenic one with direct beach access, but is also conveniently placed for access to the Berg River with its myriad outdoor activities, including fishing, canoeing, bird-watching and sailing. Shopping amenities are close at hand in Laaiplek, while the Velddrif Golf Course and Port Owen yacht basin are also nearby.
PGP’s area manager for the West Coast, Stephanie Wynne Cole, says the development lies just 140km from Cape Town, making it an ideal weekend or holiday getaway for those living in the city or in the surroundings communities of the Boland. “It would also make a wonderful home for retirees or those who work from home,” she adds.

Construction is expected to begin on a show-house shortly. It is anticipated that residents will be able to take occupation of their homes approximately six months after purchase.
