An over 20,000 sqm “Baroque Villa” in Knysna, Western Cape is up for sale.

Despite being listed for R72,000,000, this excludes VAT. When adding 15% for VAT, the price rises to R82,800,00.

The property is 200 meters above the Knysna Estuary and The Heads, is surrounded by 20.55 hectares of natural fynbos and mature trees and has views of the Indian Ocean.

It is currently used as a boutique hotel, hosting weddings, high-profile conventions and private functions.

Fine and Country said that the property is currently a going concern, but it can be turned into a grand residential manor house.

The property features eight double suites, all with views of the estuary. There is also a 2-bedroom self-contained owner’s suite on the western wing of the property, which offers complete privacy.

There is also a double-story manager flatlet, which includes a fully self-contained double bedroom and a ground-floor suite.

There is also an industrial kitchen, buffet, cold/dry storage, ducati bar, separate gents’ & ladies’ cloakroom, and disabled facilities.

Given it is a wedding venue, there is a Tuscan-style wedding chapel. There is also a Ferrari bar for smaller functions.

In addition, the property is resistant to service delivery failures, as it has 70 solar panels, four inverters, 14 lithium batteries and a generator.

There is also a 650,000-litre underground reservoir and pumps, another 120,000-litre reservoir and two 10,000 water tanks.
