A slice of Signal Hill

A sensory experience awaits buyers in the Mother City’s up and coming suburb of Bo Kaap with the launch of a new residential security estate development, Signal Hill. 

Offering a feast for the eyes with views of neighbouring Table Mountain, the harbour and the city centre below, and mouth-watering scents of exotic spices wafting in the air, Signal Hill comprises 12 freehold homes, and is quite literally on the foothills of Signal Hill itself.

Jawitz Properties holds the exclusive mandate for the development, where each property will be set over two or three levels, with its own double garage and swimming pool. Properties are selling on a plot and plan basis, ranging in size from 254m2 to 372m2, priced between approximately R5.75 million and R7.3 million inclusive of VAT. Each home consists of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, open plan living room with fire place, underfloor heating, luxury kitchen and modern finishes throughout.

“The option to add on an extra bedroom en suite and additional decking is also available,” say the Jawitz Properties consultants marketing this exclusive development, Lolly Unterslak and Darice Loeb of Jawitz Properties City Bowl.

Topit Property Management and JZE Architects are behind developing this security estate, where there will be 24-hour gated access control and electric fencing.

Signal Hill has been designed with sensitivity to the environment, and in terms of an Environmental Impact Study that has been carried out, some ancient inhabitants of the site, namely large Blue Gum Trees are being preserved.

For those who enjoy working up a sweat, there will be direct access to Table Mountain National Park for hikes or more laid back meanders, as the development is set adjacent to the Reserve.

With friendly locals and a sense of community, buyers will warm to the many benefits of living in what’s affectionately known as the gem of the City Bowl.

“Bo Kaap is historic, formerly known as the Malay Quarter, loved for its food, more than likely boasting locally purchased spices, and of course for the soulful sounds of the calls to mosque,” they add.  “The brightly coloured Bo-Kaap suburb is full of character and charm.”

“A melting pot of possibility, the area has become very popular and is in high buyer demand,” adds Francois Venter, Director of Jawitz Properties. “Bo Kaap has become a more affordable option for buyers looking to live in the City Bowl, as there is great value for money to be had. Buyers can get a three bedroom property for considerably less than in neighbouring City Bowl and other Atlantic Seaboard suburbs.”

The first property within the Signal Hill development is expected to be completed by the middle of 2015.

“While the site is cosmopolitan in its nature, it’s breaking new ground with something fresh in old Bo Kaap, ideal for anyone from ‘lock-up and go’ living to family buyers looking for a pool and garden space, to investment buyers both local and foreign. Heritage meets state of the art at Signal Hill,” he concludes.
