The quiet village of Memel in the Eastern Free State is ideally situated for weekend getaways. Location: Two and half hours from Gauteng, a 30 minute drive to Newcastle and four hours to Durban. Set between the Drakensberg foothills and escarpment, in rolling grasslands and the Seekoeivlei RAMSAR Wetland Nature Reserve, the area is popular with artists, birders and celebrities.
Activities: Known for its excellent wetland, grassland and escarpment birding (blue and wattled cranes, blue korhaan, larks, raptors, bald ibis, spurwing geese, vultures, bush blackcap and rare white-winged flufftail among others) rivaling Wakkerstroom and Dullstroom in its diversity of bird life. Its flora, mountain ranges and wetlands are just as impressive. Hippo, bird and game-spotting in the Seekoeivlei Reserve are everyday occurrences. Spectacular 4X4 and scenic drives such as the picturesque Normandien Pass with stunning views of the Drakensberg and the edge of the escarpment. Hiking, mountain biking, quad or off-road biking - or just cycling or strolling around the town – are well-known pursuits. Also available in the area are golfing, horse trails, star gazing, bass and trout fishing, and many game farms. Add to this the local meat which is superior! The plot is ideal for artists, birders, nature lovers or families in need of a break, offering peace, tranquility and healthy fresh air.
The property is well-located in a good and established part of the village where the plots are larger. Conveniently close to the main street services, shops, the hotel and pub. The outbuildings are built on the furthest edge of the stand from the road, leaving most of the property free for development. Fronted by a road, a lane passes directly behind the plot supplying municipal services. The existing building is currently suitable for storage purposes and could be used as an outbuilding for a future residential development. Safe and quiet area. The stand is well suited for development into a weekend retreat or retirement home.
All reasonable offers will be considered.
