According to Dirk Green, a Seeff Properties agent in Plettenberg Bay, investors can set their own rentals, passing on the costs of the independent, assisted living and frail care packages to potential tenants.

The ground floor consists of a reception area, comprehensively equipped luxury lounge and dining room, library, gym, spa, aqua-pool, hairdresser and multipurpose room. There is also state-of-the-art care centre with a nurse’s station and seven frail care suites with all the necessary ancillary uses.

“There are six one-bedroom and 26 two-bedroom luxury en-suite apartments, while some of the first-floor apartments open onto the rooftop garden. Both the other floors also have a small, discreet nursing station,” said Engelsman, noting that aartments range in size from 50m² to 85m², including private balconies and range in price from R2,2m to R3,7m. “There is also basement parking. All prices include VAT and transfer duty but exclude bond registration costs.”

Building will commence once 60% presales have been achieved, with 15 already snapped up.

“A 10% deposit will secure your apartment, but no other payment is required until transfer in mid-2018,” said Engelsman. “There is no age restriction on a purchaser, but tenants and occupants of the apartments must be older than 50 years.”
