Lynnwood Estate is an exclusive new freehold housing development on the Goose Valley Golf Course in Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route of South Africa. Lynnwood is a name that is synonymous with other townships incorporating the same name in Gauteng. This exclusive, desirable and secure development consists of 22 large north facing level stands in the centre of the superb Gary Player Signature Design 18 Hole Goose Valley Golf Course. Lynnwood is being developed on the last remaining parcel of land within the Goose Valley Estate and is exclusively marketed by John Fuller of Chas Everitt International Property Group in Plettenberg Bay. firstname.lastname@example.org
Plettenberg Bay property remains one of the most sought after real estate investments in South Africa. Lynnwood’s land has long been privately owned and laid fallow. Ideally situated in the middle of the golf course, it is the last remaining land suitable for further residential development within the Goose Valley Estate. Being environmentally sensitive, more than 50% of the land is being retained as a green belt area, which adds to the space and privacy that owners of these large stands will enjoy. Stands vary between 1300m² and 1500m² in extent. Selling prices are highly attractive, between R1 100 000 and R1 300 000, VAT inclusive. Transfer duty is therefore already taken care of.
Investors in Lynnwood enjoy a substantial advantage in that they are buying within a proven, highly successful and desirable residential golfing estate without any of the normal risks associated with such new developments. The infrastructure at Goose Valley is established and proven and the estate has until now been fully developed. The entire Goose Valley Golf Estate is without doubt the most financially successful of its kind on the Eastern and Southern Cape coastline. Additional benefits include outstanding leisure facilities and top security. Membership of the Goose Valley Golf Club is available. The Lynwood Estate Homeowners’ Association intends participating in the cost sharing arrangements already in place between the three existing Goose Valley developments regarding maintenance of common property, support and security.
The greater Goose Valley Golf Estate is the Garden Route’s most successful residential golf estate, comprising three existing very successful developments; the 272 Unit Goose Valley Sectional Title Scheme, the 13 stand Fairway Close freehold housing development and the 60 home Turtle Creek Golf Estate freehold development. The existing three homeowner associations are autonomous, but share certain costs such as common property, support and security on a pro rated basis. The Goose Valley Golf Club is an outstanding financial success story and the golf course and housing developments are a favoured destination and investment for European visitors who flock to the Estate between October and March each year. Goose Valley is not only a preferred permanent living and retirement destination, but also without doubt Plett’s most popular holiday destination. The Estate boasts the finest indigenous gardens on the Garden Route and is renowned for its variety of wildlife.
Goose Valley’s history is entirely different to most golf estate developments in that the golf course has always been owned by the owner members. Initially a 9-holer with a sectional title apartment development in 1996, it was subsequently voted the best nine hole course in South Africa; and in 2001 was expanded to 18 holes with the simultaneous release of the two freehold housing developments.
The location of any Golf Estate is crucial to its financial success and Goose Valley enjoys high visibility from the N2 National Highway and is only 2kms from central Plettenberg Bay, is adjacent to the Keurbooms River Estuary, the main Primary School and the largest Shopping Mall – Market Square. In fact, it is probably the most conveniently positioned “residential suburb” in Plettenberg Bay.
Goose Valley is likely to remain the only residential golfing estate in Plettenberg Bay for a very long time and this ensures high demand for property with excellent returns for owners.
In the words of South Africa’s leading golf magazine, “Goose Valley is simply the best value for money golf estate anywhere!”
Security is outstanding and the entire perimeter is surrounded by electrified palisade fencing with embedded underground steel grids, infra-red and thermal imaging cameras every 80 metres; plus a guarded entrance gate with control room; and 24 hour foot and motorised patrols.
Goose Valley’s facilities are substantial including golf, club house, pro shop, restaurant, full golf practice facilities, tennis, squash, walking / jogging,cycling, kiddie’s playgrounds, boating, swimming, and fishing. Goose Valley provides a peaceful and secure environment for all its inhabitants that is difficult to match anywhere else!
