THIS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY WITH HUGE POTENTIAL FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT*.
This is a ”One-in-a-lifetime” business OR residential opportunity on the Garden Route, a chance to experience a unique lifestyle only a few can relish.
This well-established Luxury Country House is set on ”120 ha” of land with a view over the ocean and the mountain. It has been managed by the owners since its opening in December 2012 and boasts hospitality and tourism activities rights.
The property offers spectacular views and is surrounded by large, serene bushveld with free-roaming zebras, impalas and other antelopes.
The property is 45 km from Gqeberha, formerly Port Elizabeth, and 24 km from Jeffrey’s Bay on The very popular Garden Route, the second most used route by tourists in South Africa after the wine route.
The high-quality service and management have permitted the J-Bay Zebra Lodge to become one of the leaders in the industry. As a result, they have been rewarded with the highest distinction in South Africa, in hospitality, with first place at the National Lilizela Award, for being among the best four stars Country House in South Africa.
Build in 2012, rebuild In 2018! After a devastating fire, the J-Bay Zebra Lodge was entirely rebuilt from the ground in 2018. The reconstruction allowed for improving the already excellent infrastructure and made some upgrades.
The property also includes a cosy farmhouse, a workshop and a shed situated a mere six hundred meters from the lodge, which can be hired by a tenant or used as a coffee shop. The farmhouse was rebuilt in 2011 to be used as a multi-purpose building, a venue for team building, corporate events or short-term accommodation.
Next to the farmhouse, a vineyard has been planted and produced grapes transformed into a beautiful red blend since 2019. While the grapes are grown on the Zebra Lodge ground, the wine is made and aged in French Oak Barrels in Stellenbosch by one of the best winemakers in South Africa, Mr David Finlayson, from Edgebaston Winery, and this is part of a partnership between the J-Bay Zebra Lodge and Mr Finlayson.
The vineyard is registered for growing grapes of 2000 square meters in size. The unique position and exceptional soil give great potential for expansion for someone who would like to develop into farming. This property is also suitable for olive trees.
The property presents four different biotopes with over 70 varieties of trees hosting a large number of birds.
The property also offers 25 kilometres of single tracks for mountain biking, hiking, and bird watching, which are open to the public. Those trails are part of the 3Rivers Trails, a large web of tracks covering the whole area, offering over 200 kilometres of marked routes.
Further development within the tourism activity could attract more visitors, including a zip line course and a waterless slide. This would attract more visitors counting on the tourist town of Jeffrey’s Bay, only 21 kilometres away and Gqeberha, just 30 minutes drive.
The property is exceptionally well situated, right on the Garden Route, with one of the best English private schools in South Africa at only 15 minutes drive.
Gqeberha also offers three major private hospitals, multiple shopping malls and many good restaurants, national parks, and a load of activities making this property a great place to live.
