Welcome to Breedezicht
Breedezicht Estate is a coastal development situated in the small but ever popular fishing village of Witsand with its dwellings scattered along the banks of the magnificent Breede River, on the Garden Route/Overberg boundary.
The Breede, one of the largest, most navigable rivers in South Africa, is also regarded as one of the finest fishing estuaries in the country with tidal action reaching 60 km upstream. Once a bustling little town from where steamboats loaded goods destined for the markets of Cape Town, Witsand is now known as one of the last unspoilt and safest places on our beautiful coastline. Steeped in history which dates back as far as the Portuguese seafarers, Witsand draws visitors from far and wide to delight in its offerings, of which fishing, whale watching and boating are the most popular.
With spectacular views of the Breede River Estuary, the Indian Ocean and the famous Witsand dunes, Breedezicht Estate offers prime property in a well-maintained, full title estate with fully serviced stands. Flexible architectural guidelines protect the aesthetics of the Estate while indigenous gardens pay tribute to the pristine environment and the Breedezicht conservation area. Witsand’s Blue Flag beach is 4 stop streets down the Main Road and a 2 minute walk takes you to the river’s edge.
We offer holiday accommodation in our well-appointed show houses at very reasonable rates that include a short complimentary boat ride on the river for first-time guests. Regarding our properties for sale, the developers of Breedezicht Estate are willing to accept any reasonable offers for any of the Breedezicht stands or houses from the next few buyers in view of the tardy property market in coastal regions. In a unique and pristine place such as Witsand, purchasing a Breedezicht property could prove to be well worth it.
The surrounding area abounds in sight-seeing and leisure opportunities such as the De Hoop Nature Reserve, Route 62, Barrydale, the scenic Garcia and Tradouw mountain passes, historical Swellendam with its beautiful Cape Dutch architecture, golf courses in nearby Heidelberg as well as in Swellendam and Riversdale, to name a few. Cape Town is an easy 3 hour drive from Witsand and George Airport a comfortable 2 hour trip. Whatever your expectations of a holiday home or destination, Breedezicht in Witsand should not disappoint.
