It was really thanks to their daughter, Tania that Gert and Ria retired to Hoorie C in Sedgefield and she also gave the house its name. Tania and Ria came to visit friends in Knynsa and Tania determined that she would like to work and live in the area.
Her Dad decided it would be a good plan to buy a house that his daughter could live in whilst his wife and himself would be able to use it as a holiday home. Searching fruitlessly for a suitable place in Knysna they extended their search to Sedgefield and eventually found an affordable house, then newly built that they live in now.
This didn’t happen straight away however. Tania lived in it first and when sometime later, she was made a good job offer she was keen to accept that entailed a move to Port Elizabeth, Gert and Ria resolved that the time had come to retire.
They moved to Sedgefield in 2002. The house had not been completely finished at the time Gert bought it in 1998 so once he was on site, he finished what needed doing and also extended the house so that it had a separate holiday flat.
The neat and cosy holiday flat has its own direct access and private space with outdoor braai area and a useful washing line a short way behind it. There is ample off-road parking and a carport behind gates for security.
The living area has a lounge and dining room combined and is open-plan to the kitchen. There is a TV and DSTV can be requested. The kitchen has all the mod-cons including fridge/freezer, 2-plate stove with oven, microwave oven, coffee percolator, electric frying-pan, toaster and kettle. The flat is equipped for 5 people.
The main bedroom has a double bed and adequate storage and the second bedroom sleeps three in one three-quarter bed and a two-sleeper bunk bed.
There is a full bathroom with a bath and shower.
Situated on a quiet road just off Kingfisher Drive, the main road to the beach, Hoorie C is a short and pleasant walk to the Swartvlei river-mouth and Sedgefield’s best beaches where you can swim, surf, kite-ski, walk, fish or just lie on a beach towel and soak up the sun.
