BLUFF HISTORY



The early 20th century saw the Bluff was as a wild, rural area inhabited mainly by farmers. This led to the formation of the Wentworth Farmers’ Association and would explain why many of the title deeds are named ‘Wentworth’. Prior to that, in 1853, the area was inhabited by the Thuli tribe under chief Mnini. 


A major campaign to promote the Bluff as a township began in May 1901. At that time, the Berea was becoming too overcrowded and costly and as an alternative, the Bluff, was seen to have an appealing ‘healthy lifestyle with beautiful scenery’.  Between May and December 1901 property prices on the Bluff increased from between 100 and 500%. Today, this peninsula suburb that flanks the south eastern part of Durban bay, is home to some 30 000 residents. 


The Bluff is made up of smaller suburbs, such as the sought after Brighton Beach, Ocean View, and Grosvenor areas. Upmarket high end properties with ocean views are situated on Millionaires Mile a part of Marine Drive on the seaward side of the Bluff as well as a few other exclusive roads.

“The property market is buoyant and remains a popular area for investors and buyers.  Being Situated south of Durban on the coast it has easy access to freeways and other areas in the vicinity. Because of its sense of community, churches, schools and a choice of recreational activities, the Bluff has become a sought-after place to live. Statistics reveal that for the period January to December 2014, there were 488 transfers compared to the previous year of 378. The year-on-year growth was 29.1%,” says Jawitz Properties’ Bluff agent, Susan Seath.


Properties with Ocean outlooks are popular with overseas buyers who like to escape their harsh winters as well as local business people and affluent buyers from up-country who invest in holiday or retirement homes. A shortage of stock means that when homes come onto the market, they are snapped up almost immediately.  Stand alone or freehold properties make up the bulk of sales but there are a few complexes and apartment blocks,” she says. 


Provided a property is market-related, a home sells, on average, within two days to a month. High-end and overpriced homes take much longer, sometimes between four to six months before a deal is struck. Surprisingly many buyers are willing to pay higher prices just to be able to live in this sought-after suburb.


Good value is found in Bluff Central with average prices of homes are R1 000 000 to R2 500 000 whereas a basic three bedroom home situated near the harbour or the industrial areas would cost from R600 000 upwards.  A more exclusive property with sea views, four or more bedrooms, spacious living, receptions and entertainment areas, plus cottages could vary between R3m and R12m.

The Bluff is a high-demand because of its easy access to the CBD, motorways and shopping centres. Development prospects are good due to many larger properties with multiple building rights or those on offer with ocean views or far-reaching inland vistas.


Because of the proximity to the industrial areas, demand is good for rental accommodation.Bachelor flats or cottages are let from around R3 000 a month and for the more exclusive sea view properties, fetch rentals of up to R18 000.


“On the whole, the Bluff is well-managed, and owners take pride in their suburb. It is known as a friendly family environment with tree-lined streets and fantastic beaches that are frequented by top surfing enthusiasts. Residents enjoy the conservation areas as well as time spent in seasonal whale watching.  All this adds up to its aesthetic appeal and lifestyle,” says Seath.
