A rare opportunity to own a four-star guest house with luxury 17-ensuite rooms set in tranquil gardens on a stand of 5660sqm has become available in the North West town of Vryburg. Not only is the palatial establishment being sold as a going concern, the dozens of pieces of antique furniture and collectibles in the Guesthouse, are part of the package.
Cliff Jacobs, Managing Director of Exquisite Hotel Consultants (Pty) Ltd has the sole mandate for the property, which is an oasis in the agricultural heartland of the Kalahari in the North West province. On the market for R12 500m, the guest house is a landmark in the area and is frequented by business travellers and government officials. Also a highly successful wedding, corporate function and convention venue, Villa Brocant, is well-known for its gourmet food and excellent service.
“The property is exceptional in every way and a unique investment opportunity. Each en-suite room is furnished with antiques and luxurious fabrics. All rooms are air-conditioned, equipped with DStv and have their own private entrance onto the lush gardens where guests can take a stroll, plunge into the pool or browse through the gift store.
The home has a rich history. Known to locals as “the De Wahl” house, it was built by Jos de Wahl, who was of Belgian origin. He was adopted by a South African family when his parents died en-route from the Congo to South Africa. He later became the mayor of Vryburg, building the house in 1954 and furnishing it with European originals.
“The person who buys this house will also be investing in this grand heritage, but it is certainly not a museum. It is a comfortable sanctuary for the many visitors who have delighted in its amenities since being lovingly converted into a guest house by its current owners, Pieter and Elsa Jonker. Coincidentally, they lived in Belgium for 20 years where they developed a passion for art and architecture. Since 2004 they have been operating it as a guest house and importing European furniture.”
Two additional dwellings, a two-bedroom house with lounge, dining room, undercover stoep and braai area, and a house with huge garage and storage facilities, are also part of the sale. These properties can be used as a residence for the owners or management staff, while the remaining buildings can be converted into accommodation.
Villa Brocant means “Big House with Antiques” and brings a taste of Europe to the North West province.
Amongst the products that we stock are Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Biggie Best decor items, imported French Lace, "artolivia Arts" as well as Ruah Body Products. We sell a range of vintage furniture and antique pieces imported from Europe.
Some are painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to give it our distinctive French look as well as a more contemporary Parisian look.
For the last ten years we have been importers of European Antique furniture. Styles include Ludwig XV, New Renaissance, and Henry II. The furniture that circa 1850-1900 consists of Bedroom- and Dining Suites, Armoires, Buffets and Office furniture. These masterpieces are mainly in French Oak, Walnut or Mahogany.
We also assist our clients with the art of mixing antique and modern furniture within their homes to create a stylish and contemporary look.
