Agriculture-related businesses looking for a new home in the scenic town of Stellenbosch, need look no further than the Doornbosch Centre. This ideally-situated office space, managed by the Stellenbosch Agricultural Society, is available to rent from 1 October 2022.
With the rental market revival in full swing after the pandemic low, commercial businesses, especially in the agriculture space, are once again, looking for a place to call home.
Before Covid-19, commercial property prices in the Cape Winelands have been rising well above the inflation rate, with a consistently active market seeing values increase by up to 15% per annum in the most sought-after nodes.
Although it’s not quite yet at pre-pandemic levels, the property rental market in the Cape Winelands is surging once again. At the heart of this economic revival lies the historic and quaint town of Stellenbosch.
Towns situated in the Cape Winelands, such as Paarl, Franschhoek, Wellington and Stellenbosch have become popular zoom towns, attracting not only people from upcountry but also those seeking to escape the city. Commercial businesses are following suit.
Stellenbosch has a higher concentration of retail and office space with only a couple of light industrial buildings on the outskirts of town, and demand is especially high in the town centre with very little stock currently available.
The recent rise of the Cape Wineland’s robust economic performance is generated by its famous wine production, winning many international awards, along with a diverse range of activities including agriculture, construction, wholesale and retail, financial and business services and niche manufacturing activities as well as property development and tourism.
Oak-lined avenues and quaint old buildings give Stellenbosch’s CBD an aura of peace and tranquillity, yet it is a vibrant town, especially during the university term.
Agriculture and wine-related business is core to the Stellenbosch’s economic success, offering agribusinesses space, accessibility and plenty of opportunity.
Doornbosch: the complete package
The Stellenbosch Agricultural Society (Stellenbosch Landbougenootskap) – located in the Doornbosch Complex in Strand Road – is one of the best-positioned office buildings in the historic core of Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa.
According to general manager Emile van der Merwe, the Stellenbosch Agricultural Society is looking for a suitable tenant, preferably operating in the agricultural business space, for one of its office buildings in the complex.
The office space was formerly the home of famed Doornbosch Restaurant as well as the South African division of international wine business, Accolade Wines. This centrally and favourably located agricultural-related office space is available to rent from 1 October 2022.
Situated within the Doornbosch business complex, centrally located on the R44 between Eikestad and Renish primary schools, the total area to rent is approximately 350 m2 (rental amount at R148 per m2 ).
The complex, with its lush lawns and old Dutch-style buildings, boasts breath-taking views of the majestic Stellenbosch mountains, and although you’re smack bang in the centre of midtown Stellenbosch, there’s a sense of serenity at Doornbosch that offers plenty of peace and quiet, and an environment free from disturbance.
The complex was originally built during the 1970’s and has in recent years been transformed into a beautiful site with commercial office facilities, offering secure and sufficient parking and loading space on site adjacent to the building.
The Doornbosch building has an abundance of modern offices, boardrooms, meeting and social areas, including kitchens, bathrooms, storage and open-plan work spaces. Equipped with all the necessary amenities, the complex is ideally located within walking distance from schools, hospitals, shops and all the splendour of Stellenbosch.
Surrounded by other agriculture and wine-related companies within the complex, the Doornbosch property offers a sought-after location for those operating in the agricultural space. “If you’re looking for a space to showcase your business, Stellenbosch, and especially the Doornbosch building, may be the perfect spot for you,” comments Emile.
