The Dolphin Coast is fast becoming one of the most popular residential and holiday destinations in KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa. Marked by year-round warm weather, fantastic beaches and a myriad of new developments it is an area on the rise.
Similarly, the towns and seaside resorts that can be found along this strip of coastline have drawn the attention of property buyers and investors alike.
One such town is the perfectly positioned Westbrook. Situated approximately 20 minutes from the heart of uMhlanga and King Shaka International Airport, this beautiful hamlet offers a Blue Flag swimming beach and great investment opportunities.
Visiting Westbrook, one is immediately taken by the ridge of residences and apartment buildings, built to take advantage of the breathtaking views and surroundings.
Recent statistics by Lightstone Property revealed that Westbrook's sectional title properties experienced a positive median price growth upwards of 96% between 2009 and 2018 - while the median price of freehold titles grew by roughly 117% for this period.
According to Westbrook Area Partner for Engel & Völkers Dolphin Coast, Brian Turner, "Westbrook is like a little village with house owners being very loyal and settled in the area. The sense of community is all prevailing, and as a result, few properties come on the market compared with most other areas".
Lightstone statistics on periods of ownership further indicated that 34% of existing owners have kept their properties for more than 11 years, while 15% had kept their homes for between 8 and 10 years.
Attributing the alure of Westbrook to the atmosphere and amenities in the area, Turner considers this one of the Dolphin Coast's gems. " The local beach has a Blue Flag status, and it is also an easy run into Ballito or even Umhlanga. Property prices are at a very reasonable level and will climb over the coming years - now is the time to buy."
Currently on the market is a rare opportunity to join the Westbrook community. Well priced at only R1,76m this three-bedroom duplex is located in proximity to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and offers buyers open plan living on the coast.
