La Lucia’s Luxury Property Market

Category General News

Emerging as a definite front runner of the luxury property market in KwaZulu-Natal, with a strong demand in the residential sector growing year on year – the upmarket suburb of La Lucia is in a class of its own. Situated approximately three kilometres away from the ever-popular uMhlanga, this area has remained on par with the exclusive offerings and spectacular residences that can be found in both suburbs.

Buy-to-Let on the Rise

Enjoying a great deal of activity, La Lucia is coveted in the rental market that has experienced buoyant interest in all price groups. The highest demand comes from the middle-income bracket, which has caused supply to be much scarcer. This has created the perfect buy-to-let investment environment, with investors clambering to get their hands on the few sectional title properties that are still on the market.

The upper income, luxury market continues to attract wealthy investors who seek secure investment opportunities like this magnificent three bedroom apartment for sale in La Lucia. Simply stunning, this abode boasts all the additions of designer luxury living; its three spacious bedrooms are all en-suite with air-conditioning throughout and has sweeping views of the Indian Ocean. Other features include a fully fitted bar, temperature controlled wine cellar and a veranda perfect for entertaining guests. The property is secure with 24-hour security and boom gated entrance control. Listed at R4, 950,000 this sole mandate is a truly rare find.
