I did put comments above each property line - so one might argue that's
about the same effort as writing the method explicit. Alternatively, you
could introduce a naming scheme in the getters/setters that are supposed to
be overloaded so that it becomes clear - at least for someone knowing the
project. But that's true for the whole thingy :)

Certainly not much slower - that happens once, at class creation time - and
the results would even be faster, as you can skip the layer of indirection.
