A unique and remarkable, up market, waterfront development. Serious Seller.
The most successful marina that I know. Canals are tidal with water rising and sinking with every tide – hence pure fresh sea water and plenty of sea life. A large variety of edible fish caught from one’s own front lawn or private jetty. Even octopus, dolphins, seals and sharks have been spotted on occasions. Angling, boating and swimming in the canals is the order of the day. I am resident on the marina and do not want to move. Hear and smell the sea. 2 pedestrian gates allow easy access to the east beach. Only one entry and exit for vehicles for security purposes. Security is the ultimate with sophisticated cameras on perimeter fences and on rivers edge. Fenced and gated. 24 hour manned security guards who patrol on bicycle, motor cycle, river boat and on foot. You do not have to live behind bars and gates or be bothered with bunches of keys and alarms!!! The marina was developed and opened in 1990. It will be celebrating its 25th year and is now almost complete. Very few vacant stands left for sale and less than 10% of the properties for sale. This hot, new release is well worth considering because it is situated on a double stand – giving you ample extra parking for yourself and guests. It is walled, fenced and gated hence animal and childproof. The home is attractive and offers generous accommodation with 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, open plan kitchen, dining and entertainment space with a semi open, semi private large lounge / living room. Patios off upstairs rooms offering lovely views of the canals and water and allowing one the opportunity to sleep with doors open and plenty of fresh air! The home has solar powered geysers, air-conditioning, overhead fans, under floor heating, good quality carpets in bedrooms which are health guarded (waterproof underfelt) and scotch guarded. A fenced off sparking, private pool and very sheltered, spacious side patio is most attractive for outdoor entertaining. This is a home not just a holiday house! An external staircase leading to 2 bedrooms with a bathroom and living area allows the opportunity to give this teen-pad its own entry and make this a separate unit from the main house. Port Alfred is centrally situated with a mild climate and has so many exciting attractions on the doorstep. 43 Air School. Rhodes and Stenden University. Kingswood and St Andrews College and DSG are sought after private schools. The Royal Port Alfred Golf Course and the Gary Player designed golf course at the Fish River are 2 exceptionally attractive golf courses. Some of the finest beaches on the South African coast line. Numerous game reserves – Shamwari, Kariega, Sibuya, Pumba, Lalibela, Bucklands, and Schotia to name but a few.
Port Alfred was established in the early 1820s by British settlers who were moved into the area by Lord Charles Somerset as a buffer between the Western Cape and the Ama Xhosa. Originally it was two separate towns (settlers arriving on the west bank in 1820 named their settlement Port Kowie, and those arriving on the east bank named theirs Port Frances). In 1839, William Cock started to block the natural river...
