The coastal holiday resort of Blythedale is one of those picturesque suburbs set on rolling lush green covered sand dunes.
Blythedale is categorized as a middle to upper-class suburb with a mixed property usage comprising townhouses, apartments and freehold homes.
The architecture which tends more towards the modern end of the spectrum is one strong feature in setting a high degree of demand for homes in the suburb within the permanent residential market and second holiday home market.
The India ocean and the KZN North coast, with its warm waters and white beaches is sought after as a getaway in and out of season due to the moderate weather condition which rarely drop to below 15 0C.
There are still vast tracts of vacant land available in the suburb which means it is expanding and that investor confidence is mirrored in the short time-frame the land spends on the open market.
At a travel distance of 77 km from Durban is not that much of an inconvenience for residents to this tranquil suburb and if asked many residents would say they prefer the tranquility above all else.
Homes in the suburb make full use of rolling hills and the India Ocean as a canvas on which to display architectural homes which also adds to the high property values.
There is a huge array of tourist activities which are one of the other factors that eventually lead holiday makers to purchase a second holiday home her like the fact that Blythedale is located on the Dolphin Coast meaning there is an annual Dolphin migration to experience, snorkeling and angling to mention some of the more popular activities.
