Lifestyle Estate Jeffreys Bay Seeff
Lifestyle Estate, a 24-hour security estate with a running trail, gymnasium and swimming pool is still a rare find for buyers with prices of houses ranging from just R1.3m to R2.75m for this top end luxury home with the best views in the estate and stunning beach house interiors.

Lifestyle Estate, a well located security estate in the sought-after suburb of Wavecrest in Jeffreys Bay is a rare find, offering excellent value for buyers according to Laurika Nieuwenhuis, Seeff agent for the area.

“The estate is not just ideal for family buyers, but also for retirement and holiday homes”, she says. It offers excellent 24-hour security and lovely mountain, lagoon and sea views. Residents have access to facilities such as a 1.6km running track with training stations along the way, a gymnasium and swimming pool.

There are 121 plots and prices range from just R380,000 for vacant land. Houses start from as little as R1.3m to R2.75m for one of the top houses in the estate currently on the market. This particular home comes with the best unobstructed views in the estate and since there is no land that can be developed in front of the property, the views are guaranteed.

“The plot is 820sqm in extent and the home offers a floor space of 400sqm over two levels. The design includes modern screed floors, white shaker-style interiors including the kitchen cabinets and stunning bathrooms with free-standing Victorian baths. The views are maximized throughout. There is plenty of space, balconies and terraces and the home is ideal for entertainment”, she says.

The house is built in a U-shape around a central outdoor entertainment and braai terrace. A beautiful entrance hall leads to the spacious open-plan living area which includes a lounge, dining room, indoor braai area and the kitchen, complete with a pantry and scullery. Stacking doors open the area to the braai terrace and stunning views.

There are three bedrooms, two of which are quite uniquely located at each end of the house and opening to a central terrace, again with stunning views. There is also a guest suite on the ground floor level. A double automated garage leads into the house and the garden is established.

Jeffreys Bay sits midway between Port Elizabeth and East London and occupies a conveniently central coastal location, thus appealing to buyers from just about every inland province according to Nieuwenhuis.

The year-round temperate climate makes it an ideal holiday and retirement destination. Its warmer waters, fabulous beaches and surfing reputation propels it further to the top of the most wanted list when it comes to coastal destinations.

While laid-back, it offers excellent infrastructure, from retail to medical as well as plenty of activities for visitors and residents. As a surfing and water sport mecca, it hosts a number of events annually including family activities over the holiday periods. It is also renowned for its adventure facilities including the world’s highest bungee jump at Bloukrans Bridge just outside the town.
