The Plettenberg Manor, a new retirement village in Plettenberg Bay, is 78% sold out, says Hein Ehlers, chief executive of Devmark Property Group.

The development forms part of Devmark’s The Retirement Collection, and on completion will consist of 111 luxury homes, 54 cottages and 24 free-hold luxury apartments.

“The Plettenberg Manor has direct access to a private beach, hiking trails, bird hides for birdwatchers, and bowling greens – all on the estate,” Ehlers says.

Bruwer de Jager, marketing and sales executive at The Plettenberg Manor, says there are only 23 units left.

“The development offers eight accommodation types, ranging from three-bedroom houses to apartments designed in the Cape vernacular style. We only have Grey Heron and Egret Luxury Homes, Penguin and Cormorant Luxury Cottages, and Albatross apartments available. The apartments are priced from R1.55 million and luxury unit prices range from R2.695m to R4.350m.”

De Jager says completion of the development is scheduled for the second quarter of 2020. The development team will provide buyers with a master programme, setting out the completion timeframe for each unit.

He says the former Keurbooms River Hotel will be restored and refurbished to function as the estate’s clubhouse.

“Building of the clubhouse will commence in March next year and will include a restaurant, a coffee shop, a ladies bar, a beauty salon, a convenience store, assisted living suites and a healthcare centre including a 24 bed frail care centre. The vitality wing of the clubhouse will provide options to stay fit and entertained with a gym and a swimming pool.”

The development recently won two awards at the International African Property Awards for Best Residential Development and Best Development Marketing. It was also named as one of the Top 10 residential estates in South Africa by New World Wealth earlier this year.
