Berghof Estate - Secure residential estate in Hermanus

Berghof Estate is still one of the best kept secrets of the Overstrand, and this gem lies nestled between the Mossel Mountain Range and the Walker Bay Coastline. It has panoramic views of the whole bay from Gansbaai in the east to Vermont in the west. 

The Estate comprises a northern section which is higher up on the mountain side, and has stands ranging from 950sqm to 2500sqm and a southern section of the estate which is closer to the Sea and has stands of between 500sqm and 750sqm. Berghof Estates has a distinct rural feel about it, and birdlife abounds. Despite being only a 15 minute drive from the C.B.D, one still has the feeling of being out in nature. Of interest is that it is one of the last developments in the Hermanus area which is still able to offer unspoiled sea and mountain views. 

The Estate has easy access to schools (The Northcliff College is an easy walk from the gates, and Curro Private School is a 5 minute drive away. The Onrus shops, post office, selection of restaurants and a beach and lagoon are also only 5 minutes away by car. 

Should you need to visit the Hermanus C.B.D you will find it’s a quick, scenic 15 minute trip along the R43 from Cape Town. The complex has been designed using a modern Tuscan style of Architecture, which produces a harmonious, aesthetically pleasing style, whilst maximizing the opportunities to make full use of the magnificent sea vistas and mountain backdrops. The choice of designs available in the modern Tuscan style are shown by views of existing homes in the Estates. Comparable estates and even plain freehold stands in Chanteclaire have seen massive capital growth and popularity. Berghof is possibly the last new gated estate to be allowed in Hermanus. Upper-Berghof is set high against the slope of a mountain and the seaviews are unsurpassed. Lower Berghof is almost built out and upper Berghof is now ready to move! Berghof Estate is set in one of the most picturesque natural nodes of Hermanus. With a total of 115 erven on 160, 000 m2, the stands are very well-proportioned. Berghof overlooks most of Hermanus. Whale and dolphin watching from your front patio is a given. Chanteclaire’s many vacant stands sold at excellent prices over the last few months and the last stands are being snapped up by astute investors. Vacant stands in gated estates have all but dried up and speculative builders have to find the next good option. Berghof is that option, if you want to have seaviews. Developments which went through similar life-cycles have seen 40% to 50% growth over the past year, as they went from 20% developed to 80%. 

There is only other security estate where you can design a single-storey home with great sea-views. Hemel & Aarde estate properties regularly set new record-high prices. Berghof is becoming the only credible alternative and will start recording record returns soon. 

Nature trails around and a waterfall within makes Berghof a must for nature lovers. Hermanus is becoming part of the Western Cape's new economic node with Somerset West as pivot.
