Waterwise properties highlighted in marketing initiative

Waterwise properties highlighted in marketing initiative

Chas Everitt Cape Town South is the first company in South Africa to highlight waterwise properties.
“This step recognises the substantial investment that many sellers have made in their properties with regard to water efficiency as well as independent water sourcing and storage solutions.

These efforts and investments can cost hundreds of thousands of Rands and a mere passing reference in the property description fails to draw sufficient attention to the investment which has gained enormous importance as the drought has become a crisis in our region.  This ‘waterwise’ marketing campaign further serves to raise the awareness of the water situation in our region.  We are encouraging other real estate businesses to embrace the idea and follow our lead and use the waterwise logo in their marketing.

Sellers and buyers have already responded very positively to this initiative and we are highlighting these properties in our listings on www.CEI.co.za as well as www.CapeTownProperty.com and www.Constantia.co.za

DENNENDAL AND TOKAI 3RD QUARTER 2016/2017

Tokai has a strong turnover of sales for such a small suburb, a strong indication of the demand for property in the area, although the number of sales dropped slightly from 42 in 2016 to 38 in 2017 with the highest sale in Glenugie Ave at R6 840 000 earlier this year.  Average price for 2016 was R3 928 268 and R4 251 439 for 2017. Property prices in Tokai have maintained steady growth over the last few years with the annual average increase in sales prices between 8-10 % year on year. The average days listing is 67 days with a difference of approximately 7-10% between asking and selling price.

Due to the area’s many attributes, residential properties in Tokai are in constant high demand across all sectors of the market. Entry-level homes and cottages start from around R2.5million, ranging up to around R4-6 million for a spacious family home in sought-after Dennendal close to the greenbelt and Tokai Forest and particularly the Forest Glade security complex, where recent sales exceed R4m, homes are generally snapped up when they come onto the market, as such properties are usually tightly held by owners.

Despite the slowdown in growth nationally, Cape Town and Tokai are still thriving.  However, due to changing property market conditions, the key for serious sellers is smart pricing and all the more reason to choose a reputable company and agent that can offer you the best marketing solutions for your property –

Ghosts of Tokai Manor

Although grazing rights on the lands around the Tokai Manor House were originally held by Simon van der Stel, the estate was sold in 1792 to Johan Andreas Rauch, chief of the armoury and head caretaker of the Groote Schuur Estate.

The following owner, Andreas Teubes, was responsible for the construction of a manor house which French master architect, Louis Michel Thibault, is credited to have designed.

The very high front stoep (verandah), with its massive round pillars, was created by dramatically curving the twin flights of stairs. The residence was completed in 1796 and was described as the most outstanding homestead in the Cape Peninsula.

The cost of building this splendid house ruined Teubes and he was forced into bankruptcy in 1799. In the early 1800s the residence was owned by Petrus Michiel Eksteen. He was a party-loving spendthrift who hosted the finest banquets. His parties were well-known and his cellars always well-stocked. (He was eventually declared insolvent in 1849.)

During one of Eksteen’s New Year’s Eve parties, his son Frederick accepted a wager from his father to ride his horse up the staircase and into the dining room.

The guests watched expectantly as he mounted the steep steps of the Manor House on horseback. The horseman circled the dining room table, hooves clattering, spurred on by cheers and laughter from the revellers.

Tragedy followed. The dinner guests rose to watch horse and mount depart. While descending the exception­ally steep steps, the horse tripped and both horse and rider fell. The game young man broke his neck in the fall and lay dead alongside his horse at the bottom of the staircase.

It is said that the spectral horse and rider still canter through the forest and sometimes, especially on New Year’s Eve, they still try to repeat their foolhardy act.

Over the years there have been several reports about the pair frequenting the area around the Manor House. Without a logical explanation, sometimes exuberant laughter and neighing of horses can be heard from inside the Manor House at night. In the dark early hours of the morning forestry workers have heard a horse at full gallop along the road. The rider reportedly wears clothes from a bygone era heads straight towards the old house and mounts the steps!
