A well known landmark in Simon's Town, known as 'Sophea Gallery' is being brought to auction by Rawson Auctions Western Cape. Sophea Gallery has been run as a coffee shop, gift shop and gallery for many years. As a residential and general business property type, the opportunities for uniqueness are endless.
It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms , complemented well by a lounge, a dining area, and a kitchen with built in cupboards. The floor is either tiled or of a warm Oregon pine, depending on the area of the abode. The interior (and exterior) is coloured in an autumn pallet, which blends seamlessly with the building’s quaint cottage.
There is parking space for three vehicles, while another two, off-street parking spots, can be utilised if needed. Rates are on the lines of about R2500 per month, which when one considers the massive Erf size of 497m2, is nothing but affordable.
