Karookraal is a new development in the established part of Hartenbos that will deliver real Karoo-style homes.
Hartenbos is a very popular holiday destination for visitors from all over South Africa and now the Karookraal development is providing you with the opportunity you have been looking for.
With the increasing demand for property in Hartenbos, especially under individuals moving from the northern parts of the country to the Garden Route, existing property prices have soared. This resulted in the Karookraal development becoming the most affordable option in Hartenbos.
The exclusive Karookraal estate is located on the Hartenbos river on the northern edge of the CBD. Phase 1 and 2 are currently on sale and includes plots of between 261m2 and 386m2. Buyers can choose between various 2- and 3-bedroom designs, or can have a standard design adjusted to meet specific requirements.
The estate will have 24-hour manned security with a secure gatehouse and electrified fencing. Karookraal is ideal for any individual with a lock-up-and-go lifestyle seeking to invest in a secure residential complex.
This centrally located development is walking distance from the CBD and the beach, and boasts with northern views over the Hartenbos river to the distant Outeniqua mountain range.
Transparent building contract
With the transfer of each plot, the owner enters into a contract with the developer’s architect who has been appointed for the design, municipal approvals, calling for tenders, and the management of the building contracts. The architect leads a professional team that includes a structural engineer, quantity surveyor and interior designer. More than one house go on tender at the same time in an effort to attract the bigger contractors which should keep the building rates as competitive as possible. The developer receives no levies or profits on these building contracts. The finances and building contracts are independently managed according to every buyer’s individual requirements. The total fee for this complete service amounts to 7.5% of the building costs; which is very reasonable.
After the transfer of the property has taken place, a buyer has 18 months to sign a building contract with the successful building contractor.
Construction has already begun
The first houses were put on tender in October 2017, the site was handed over to the building contractor during November 2017, and construction is well under way. The first residents will be able to move into their new homes by the end of June 2018. Because a number of houses went out on tender simultaneously, excellent rates were offered in this tender. Please contact one of our agents if you require specific details.
Keuler Properties, Karookraal’s estate agents, can supply estimated building costs and discuss alternative building plans with buyers; or can arrange for you to meet the architect to discuss your specific requirements. He can advise you on the potential of each plot and what you can build for your budget. When your dream home’s sketch plans are presented to you, the quantity surveyor will provide you with the updated
building cost for your specific plan.
Excellent investment opportunity
The Karookraal development offers an excellent investment opportunity in one of the Garden Route’s most popular towns. The
estate is located on the last piece of development property in Hartenbos proper, which makes the development unique at affordable prices.
Plots are available from R430 000 (incl. VAT).
Karookraal’s development manager will ensure that each design falls within the development’s guidelines and that buyers’ investments are protected at all times. The estate and its communal areas will eventually be managed by the homeowners’ association which will be elected by the owners.
