Well Established Lodge and Eco Development
Unique opportunity to purchase a very well-established lodge and eco development on 63 hectares, currently being run as a very successful business.
The Lodge has been running for over 20 years and has a four-star grading. There is luxurious accommodation for up to 25 guests in 2 family houses and 6 studios, suitable for couples.
Stone Manor is the hub, with elegant reception rooms and modern conference facilities. The Lodge has established considerable mid week business from conferences held by the local mining houses. Furthermore it continues to be a popular destination for the Johannesburg and Pretoria visitors over weekends.
The sale also includes all of the movables, furnishings and equipment. It would continue to run as a going concern, with a significant income, without any further capital layout.
The capacity of the Lodge could be increased by building additional accommodation on the undeveloped 24 full title stands.
Alternatively, six of the accommodation units, situated on full title stands, could be sold off as housing immediately.
The additional, as yet undeveloped, 24 full title stands could be developed and sold individually as completed houses, or they could be sold as full title vacant stands. Provision has been made for the servicing of these stands.
The entire property is in excellent condition.
Set in the Mpumalanga Highlands between Dullstroom and Lydenburg. Easy access off the R540, the estate lies at the foot of the Long Tom Pass and the start of the Panorama Route.
