KEURBOOMS - LOOKING UP!
The Keurbooms area has always been a place of dreams for its residents and visitors alike. Property values have therefore risen steadily over the years as more and more people appreciate what it has to offer – Blue Flag Beaches dotted along long stretches of pristine beaches, wild high dunes, spectacular views across the bay from elevated positions, access to a myriad of nature walks, a dynamic river mouth, the estuary/lagoon offering a myriad of activities; surf and rock angling.
Traditionally, from a property sales point of view, Keurbooms is divided into the Keurbooms River and Keurboomstrand.
Prices along the Keurboomstrand beachfront have grown over the past few years. The following are some landmark examples that have taken place: a 4 bedroom home in the upmarket Whales Haven beachfront estate sold for R10.5 mil; a stand in the same development sold for R6.5 mil; three sales of properties in Keurbooms village for R9 mil, R9.7 mil and R8.3 mil respectively; a luxury 7 bedroomed home in The Waves sold for R12.5 mil ; a spacious 4 bedroom house in Keursands sold for R12.3 mil. All the sales mentioned were concluded by Sothebys International Realty, the bulk by the author.
Looking at registered sales over the past year for the entire Keurbooms area the following is of interest : there were under 10 sales in the village ranging from R3.5 mil to R9.4 mil; three sales in Keurview estate with R6mil the top sale; around 10 sales took place on estates on the Keurboomsriver which include a number of affordable units in San Marino and The Dunes, and two sales in two of the upmarket beachfront security estates for above R5mil.
Currently, there is a wide variety of property available for sale in the Keurboomstrand area varying from vacant stands for R690 000 to luxury homes above the R15mil mark, and lots of affordable quality holiday cottages in between, all within easy walking distance to the beach.
Perched above the village is Keurview estate which commands mesmerising views over the bay. The estate offers good value and has a vacant stand and a lovely home for sale, both offering very good value.
Keurbooms River remains popular and in-demand particularly because of the access it offers to the lagoon and, at low tide from certain of the estates, it’s an easy walk across the sandspit to the Keurbooms beach. Sotheby’s International Realty has been the foremost seller in the Strandmeer resort for years already and still has good value properties to offer to the nature orientated buyer.
Sotheby’s International Realty currently has 25 properties to offer along the Keurboomsriver, some are holiday resort type properties at affordable prices around the R2mil mark whilst others are in upmarket gated estates between R6mil and R10 mil.
There is something for everyone!
