Thulana Hill - Luxury apartments in Plettenberg Bay, Western Cape
Phase 2 launching; phase one sold out.
Move fast to stake a claim to great value in Plettenberg Bay. Known as the Jewel of the Garden Route, top holiday destination Plettenberg Bay has not always been an attainable choice for would-be home-buyers, due to high property prices.
But in the past few years, prices have moderated considerably and created some excellent buying opportunities, says local Sotheby’s International Realty franchisee Hein Pretorius – “with the most attractive of these at the moment being the luxury apartments in the Thulana Hill development at the top of Marine Drive on the ridge overlooking Robberg Beach”.
The two-, three- and four-bedroom units in the completed first phase of this development are available in a variety of spacious layouts, including some duplexes, but all offer luxury finishes, large entertainment patios, 24-hour security and some have good sea views, he says.
“The prices represent the best value currently available for an upmarket development on the Garden Route. “These apartments are selling for prices at which it is not now possible to build similar homes. Indeed, Thulana Hill is about 30% cheaper than any similar development in Plett, and the apartments are also more spacious than the average available here. Also, prices include VAT so there is no transfer duty, and the developer will pay the transferring attorneys’ legal fees.
Features of the Thulana Hill apartments include Caesarstone kitchen counter-tops, aluminium windows and sliding doors, quality built-in hobs and ovens with both gas and electricity, space for four kitchen appliances (fridge, washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher) and covered parking. The luxury duplex units also have a hot tub on the patio as well as a built-in Weber gas braai and single garages.
Outdoors, Thulana Hill boasts lush, rolling lawns and indigenous landscaped gardens, as well as a large pool with a wooden deck that enjoys an outstanding view of the bay. The complex also has good security provisions including controlled access via a manned gatehouse, and security patrols at night.
“The development is also,” says Pretorius, “just five minutes away from all the main attractions and amenities of Plett, including the beaches, the lagoon, two highly-rated golf courses and the shops, restaurants and night-spots in the centre of town.
“Plett is also surrounded by nature reserves that offer extensive opportunities for bird-watchers, hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians in addition to its full array of beach, river and sea water sports. For those who are contemplating living here permanently, it is also worth noting that there are excellent schools in Plett and that the local airport is being upgraded and scheduled to re-open next year.”
Phase 2 will be built one block at a time.
