Umhlanga Residential Development Land

In2assets will be auctioning five properties in KwaZulu-Natal on February 15 at 11am. The auctions will take place at the Mount Edgecombe Country Club.

The first property going under the hammer is a piece of residential development land - the remainder of Portion 9 of the farm lot La Lucia No. 14634, Ridge Road, Umhlanga.

This property is situated in sought-after Umhlanga Rocks, close to the beach and in the heart of this upper-class residential node. This prime position allows for easy access to the retail, commercial and social amenities. 

This rare piece of vacant land is situated along Ridge Road and is one of the last remaining vacant sites in the area. The property would suit a developer or a buyer looking to develop their own home. 

The second property is a commercial office at 66 Kings Road, Pinetown.

With prime position behind St Johns Shopping Centre/Checkers Centre, the building is large and sits on a site extent of 1290m².

The office has been reconfigured to offer three separate lettable spaces. Currently the property has two occupants and one vacant space. There are also approximately 15 parking bays on site.

Viewing for these properties is by appointment only. For more information on either, please contact Luke Hearn on 071 351 8138 or email

The third property is a residential block within the Musgrave Centre Precinct at 234 Stephen Dlamini (Essenwood) Road.

The property is centrally positioned with easy access to Durban CBD and in close proximity to sporting facilities and amenities and next door to the Musjidus Salaam Mosque.

This residential block could be used in a number of ways and would be ideal as a step down/frail care facility, student accommodation or even as private residences. There is a lease in place with UKZN for student accommodation.

It features 56 rooms, spread through the property, which can accommodate 113 people. The ground floor comprises a reception office, a spacious TV room, study room and a large kitchen equipped with cupboards, stoves and microwaves. 

There is also a laundry room, pool, braai area and wash area. Some of the rooms feature patios and balconies.

The fourth property - another residential block - is at 22 Clyde Avenue, Musgrave, in close proximity to the Musgrave Shopping Centre.

This block could be used as a step down/frail care facility, student accommodation, private residential or even as offices. 

It is within walking distance to the popular Essenwood Road Park, to the Overport City Shopping Centre (The Atrium) and various educational institutions and comprises a triple storey main building and a double storey outbuilding.

The property consists of 58 rooms that can accommodate 117 people, and has 24 showers and 17 toilets.

The ground floor offers a reception office, a TV room/dining room and a large kitchen.

The final property going under the hammer is a ±12 000 m² residential development site at 30-40 Pradeep Road, Nagina, Mariannhill.

The suburb is located approximately 8km south west of Pinetown and 30km west of Durban.

The area is made up of mainly freestanding homes suited for the middle-income group. Due to its location and proximity to Mariannhill Primary School, which is within walking distance, the town hall and a small commercial node that lies approximately 2.5km north of the property, this site provides an ideal development opportunity. 

Viewing is by appointment only. For more information, please contact Muhammad Ali on 079 458 4256 or 031 574 7600 or email
