High demand for secure estate living in the heart of Cape Winelands

A high demand for secure, estate living in the heart of the Western Cape’s sought after Winelands region has prompted the launch of exclusive Uitgezocht Estate, which incorporates just 25 full title stands set among picturesque, private vineyards only four kilometers from Paarl in the Boland.

“Situated on the R45 with easy access to the N1, Uitgezocht Estate offers vineyard country living at its best,” says Surina du Toit, Pam Golding Properties area manager in Paarl, Wellington and Franschhoek, exclusive marketers of the new development.
 
“Bordering the established Winelands Estate, residents are assured of spectacular scenery and views and absolute privacy. Importantly, the estate is only 20 minutes’ drive from Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and 30 minutes from the city of Cape Town and Cape Town International Airport. This makes the new development an ideal option for those who want to enjoy all the benefits of healthy, relaxed country living while working in the city, and with every amenity close at hand.”
 
Ranging in size from 701 to 1182sqm, the stands are priced from R990 000 to R1.59 million, with low levies of R900 per month. “This means Uitgezocht Estate is far more accessible to a broader market,” says du Toit.
“At the same time, this is an extremely prestigious address – the adjacent Winelands Estate is home to luxurious, high-end residences, while well-known Pearl Valley and Boschenmeer golf estates are close by. En route to Franschhoek, Uitgezocht is also near renowned wine estates such as Backsberg, Glen Carlou, Vrede en Lust, Fairview, Landskroon, Rupert &Rothschild Vignerons, Seidelberg and Babylonstoren,” says du Toit. “For the gourmet, one is spoilt for choice as world-class restaurants are in abundance.
 
“Enquiries are already brisk with one stand sold even prior to the official launch date. Because of the proximity to towns and good educational facilities in Paarl and Stellenbosch, including private schools such as Bridge House and Simond Private School, we anticipate that buyers will be mainly those purchasing for primary use. However, for those seeking an accessible getaway home or international ‘swallows’ who spend several months of the year here, this is an ideal acquisition.”

A tree-lined avenue with vineyards on each side leads to the stands which are integrated around pubic open spaces and pedestrian-friendly streets, each with spectacular views of the Simonsberg, du Toitskloof Mountains and Berg River Valley, while the Drakenstein mountains can be seen right through to Kanonkop.
 
Adds du Toit: “Wide open spaces and a tranquil environment afford room to enjoy the perfect balance between fine living and a carefree environment to raise a family. It’s a lifestyle with a sense of community, but with an emphasis on security.” The estate will be enclosed by 2.5m high electrified perimeter fencing with under-dig protection, gatehouse with access control including pre-designed methods of control for different categories of users to ensure a secure, contained environment. Additional security features include CCTV cameras with offsite monitoring capabilities, while alarm systems and panic buttons from every home can be incorporated into the system.
 
Each purchaser will be able to design their home within the specified architectural guidelines of the estate and using their own architect and builder, with construction to take place within three years of transfer. The architectural style of the homes will have a typical Cape Vernacular flavor with a blend of modern and traditional elements creating a cohesive architectural character and village atmosphere. Influences are drawn from the rich tapestry of Stellenbosch, Paarl and surrounds, recognizing the rural character and unique identity which gives the Cape Winelands its distinctive sense of place.
