Spectacular views of Durban beaches and the city from luxurious frontline penthouse

An exceptional 612sqm penthouse apartment with sweeping views over Durban and the coastline to the north and south – and which is the result of combining six units into one spacious, luxury apartment – is currently on the market, priced at R15 million. This luxurious suite is on the 36th and 37th floors of the building, which is on Durban’s South Beach.

Pam Golding Properties Durban agent Shelley Halgreen says this trendy building located in prime position right on the frontline enjoys 360 degree views and has excellent 24 hour security. Immaculate with luxury finishes, the living spaces in this apartment flow seamlessly and include a spacious entertainment and dining area with swimming pool and sauna, ideal for intimate parties or large celebrations.

“In close proximity to the CBD and Moses Mabhida Stadium, this luxury apartment is only a 20 minute drive to King Shaka International Airport. It includes a formal lounge with a big screen TV, fully fitted kitchen with state of the art Miele and Siemens appliances, upstairs bar area and lounge with separate shower and toilet, four bedrooms (three en suite) – including an extra spacious master bedroom with a massive separate dressing room, standard dressing room with huge mirror-fronted built-in cupboards and a full bathroom with centre bath, double basin, separate shower and toilet area. There is a study next to the master bedroom and full staff quarters which include a separate kitchen and toilet and its own entrance,” says Halgreen. She says there is also a prayer room in the building, and various places of worship in the vicinity.

Comments Carol Reynolds, Pam Golding Properties area principal in Durban, Durban North and La Lucia: “Known locally as the Golden Mile, Durban’s beachfront in fact comprises four miles (or approximately 6.44km) from the Bluff in the south to the mouth of the uMngeni River in the north. Along this stretch is everything a beachgoer could wish for – water activities, elegant dining, gardens and curios and the family-oriented uShaka Marine World, which also has the highest water slide in Africa.

Adds Halgreen: “The beaches are protected by shark nets, and if you want to travel from South to North Beach while enjoying the sunshine there are the famous, colourful rickshaw-pullers who wear magnificent headdresses decorated with beads.

“There is also the People Mover bus which, after paying your fare, you can get on and off as many times as you like between the Point Waterfront in the south and Blue Lagoon in the north. For sports and fitness enthusiasts, in addition to the long stretch of promenade which runs right along the beachfront and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, there is a gym at the famous Growthpoint Sharks Rugby Stadium, while the Kingsmead Cricket Stadium is also close by. At Moses Mabhida Stadium you can enjoy sweeping views of Durban by travelling to the top via cable car, where you can also see this exceptional penthouse apartment.”
