In terms of investment value Gowrie Farm and Fly-fishing Estate is situated on the doorstep of a number of the country's leading independent schools such as Michaelhouse, Clifton, Kings and Treverton. This makes Gowrie Farm a desirable investment for the parents of children attending these schools. It also opens up interesting opportunities for deriving an annuity return not to mention the ever-present resale market to well-heeled purchasers for generations to come. Gowrie Farm is also adjacent to the village of Nottingham Road which is an essential stopover along South Africa's premier Arts and Crafts route, the popular Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands Meander.
In addition, the South African golf estate property market has been one of great return both financially and in terms of secure living. Golf estate properties have appreciated by two and a half to three times their initial value in five years and have completely outperformed the conventional property market. By cleverly combining golf and fly-fishing within the context of an operational farm and a gated estate set in the heart of South Africa's premier arts and crafts route, the famous Natal Midlands Meander, the developers of Gowrie Farm Golf and Fly-fishing Estate have come up with a sure-fire recipe for a winning investment.
Gowrie Farm and Fly-fishing Estate was officially launched onto the market at the beginning of October 2005. By this time early bird investors who had realized the investment potential of prime Midlands real estate had snapped up over R30 million of stands effectively selling out phases 1 and 2. Stands in phase 3 of the development have just been launched with prices ranging from R895 000 including VAT upwards (No transfer fees). This is excellent value for a prestigious golf and flyfishing estate in the area.
