Brackenridge is a magnificent 128 hectare estate with 280 prime development stands set amongst stunning indigenous Fynbos. This most desirable, secure, eco friendly development is only a few minutes from Plett's famous beaches and shops. Stands are large, approximately 1500 m² on average. Strict development and architectural guidelines apply, ensuring an indigenous paradise with homes of a high standard, thus enhancing this estate's growing image as one of the most desirable addresses in Plettenberg Bay.
Chas Everitt Plettenberg Bay markets a wide range of Brackenridge property, from vacant stands to complete homes.
Brackenridge consists of 5 different suburbs:
Watsonia Heights (Phase 1)
Perched on the top of the Bracken Ridge, Watsonia Heights contains most of the higher priced properties in Brackenridge. Most Watsonia Heights properties enjoy commanding views of the Bay in the East, while some at the back of the ridge have both sea views and spectacular Westerly views of the Plettenberg Bay Country Club Golf Course below and the distant Outeniqua Mountains. This area, and Protea Dale, are without doubt the "prime" parts of Brackenridge, and the average size home is generally larger than in the other suburbs and the average selling price is therefore higher.
Protea Dale (Phase 2)
Protea dale adjoins Watsonia heights and is a larger area, and many of the stands are at a slightly higher altitude than those of Watsonia Heights and on level land (with the exception of those overlooking the golf course) This suburb enjoys magnificent sea and/or valley /golf views and is also a higher priced suburb with mostly level stands and large luxury homes. Many homes have been designed to maximise the expansive ocean views and most have rim-flow swimming pools which tend to blend into the distant sea and sky vistas.
Orchid Valley (Phase 3)
Orchid Valley is on the sea side (East) of the ridge, below Watsonia Heights and Protea Dale and comprises stands on the slopes of the ridge, many of which have superb sea views, plus some stands slightly lower down the hill with good partial sea views, and a number of stands in the valley, which have no sea views, but enjoy more protection from prevailing winds and have more luxuriant Fynbos growth and fauna inhabiting the denser bush. This is a lovely area with generally more expensive homes on the slopes of the Ridge, and more moderately priced properties in the valley
Erica Heath (Phase 4)
Erica Heath is the southerly section of the Estate, and offers very reasonably priced stands. Most stands have no views other than the surrounding grasslands. This area has very little Fynbos. There is a possibility that in a few years adjacent land outside the development may be developed into a Jack Nicklaus Golf Estate, and If so, a possibility exists that an entrance from Brackenridge to the golf course could be sited at Erica Heath. This could add value to homes in this suburb, as well as the potential views of the new golf course over the rolling hills of the adjacent land. Erica Heath is the most affordable suburb in Brackenridge and ideal for people who are not obsessed with sea views, but are looking for a cost effective investment in this superb secure Estate.
Bitou Glade (Phase 5)
Bitou Glade is on the sea side (East) of Erica Heath. The properties comprise a mixture of sloping vista stands on the East side of the ridge, and valley stands. The suburb is much like Orchid Valley, with its slopes and forested valley with abundant fauna. Some of the higher stands have distant sea views but these are more distant than those in phases 1, 2 and 3. The suburb is at the southerly end of the Estate and is a quiet area with no passing traffic from neighbours in the Estate
