Here is a Private Guest Lodge and Conference Venue that must be seen to be believed as the owners have spared no expense in ensuring that this venue is one of the best guest lodges and conference venues to have come onto the market in a long time. The guest lodge is situated near The Cradle of Humankind and is in the middle of the “Wedding Mecca” of Gauteng and in the heart of the Crocodile Ramble, with excellent room for growth and endless options. It is only 10 minutes from Lanseria International Airport and approximately a 30 to 40 minute drive from Johannesburg, Sandton, Randburg or Pretoria, 9km from Cradlestone Mall, Silverstone Casino and a Netcare hospital, 8 km from Avianto private school.
This makes the lodge ideally positioned to complement the new Lanseria smart city development that is soon to take off!
It is situated on 2,5 hectares, with 24 bedrooms in and amongst a lovely garden with large old trees and rolling lawns in a quiet area – talk about peace, tranquility and a real hide-away. The lodge is filled with character and consists of double storey thatched houses and numerous cottages and guest studio apartments - all with private entrances into the garden – see the Section 3 below.
The amazing part is that the owners are only asking R9.5 million for this dream lodge lock stock and barrel. In addition, there is an opportunity to purchase an additional 6 hectares below this property stretching down to the spruit for R4.2 million. The 6 hectares are sub-divided into 3 x 2 hectares with a large double storey home on one of the portions.
