Greytown, Cape Guest House

KwaZulu-Natal auction house is extending its operational area for this month’s sales

IN A BUSY month, In2Assets will on September 18 at 11am at the Durban Country Club auction industrial property in Greytown after an excursion into the Western Cape, where it will sell a luxury guest house on September 13. Virend Deonarain, who is handling the Greytown sale, says the 1 700m² buildings, on a site of more than 5 600m², are at 135 Louis Botha Drive, an extension of the R33 Pietermaritzburg main road. “The property comprises a warehouse of 1 350m², workshop of 360m² and yard area of 2 500m². It is currently rented out at R40 000 per month and the tenant is willing to sign a long-term lease. “The full spectrum of municipal services is available and emergency services, such as SAPS, medical and firefighting services, are well represented in the area,” Deonarain says. Greytown is about 150km from Durban and 60km from Pietermaritzburg.

The town on the banks of the Umvoti River is at the hub of a network of roads leading to Colenso, Mooi River, Stanger, Pietermaritzburg and Dundee.
