Luxury meets tranquility in this dream mountain-side home in secure Chapman’s Bay Estate

Set in the upper reaches of brand new, secure, gated, Chapman’s Bay Estate, this four-bedroomed home with three bathrooms and a guest toilet enjoys breathtaking, uninterrupted views of False Bay and Chapman’s  Bay across the Noordhoek valley.


 
Glassed on three sides, the home is flooded with natural light and boasts exceptional vistas of the surrounding mountain range.
 
Designed by Architect Stephen Lennard, for clients Dave and Kandice Bland, this home is a pristine example of a Premier Avenue unit with an extravagantly spacious 300m2 under roof.
 
Extensive research and thought has gone into the orientation, design and choice of building materials. This home features a monopitch roof, which allows for northern light and winter sunshine, but limits harsh summer sun. “The use of concrete as a roof material helps to insulate the home, and this means one can utilise more glass, before requiring additional insulation or double glazing,” says Lennard.


 
Being built against a slope, on two levels, means that one can access a garden from the bedrooms on the lower level, which open directly onto a southern lawned garden, while the living area on the upper level leads to a north garden and pool. 
 
Here the residents are sheltered from the wind by the mountain behind, and in front, by the home, yet extensive glass panels allow for particularly splendid ocean views, even from the rear of the house, framed as they are by the interiors themselves.
 
“I love the north patio and garden, we braai there and sit outside most evenings,” says Kandice, adding that morning coffee is best enjoyed on the southern deck, from where one can enjoy the majestic wide open space.
 
“The home is everything we dreamed it would be and has a great flow,” says Dave whose company, Exclusive Projects is responsible for the construction.
 
According to the Blands, estate life offers numerous advantages. “It’s so secure and tranquil here, and we love walking our dogs around the estate. We’re close to all the amenities both in Noordhoek and over Ou Kaapse Weg in the Southern Suburbs – it’s the best of both worlds.”
 
With high demand and limited stock, real estate on the Cape Peninsula comes at a premium, as a growing number of would be semigrants are discovering. More and more families wishing to relocate from Gauteng and Kwazulu Natal are seeking homes in the Southern suburbs and South Peninsula, close to schools and other amenities.
 
“Security estates top the wish list – add views, space, nearby beaches and natural beauty and all the boxes are ticked,” says Mike Greeff, CEO of Greeff Christie’s International Real Estate.
 
He says that Chapman’s Bay Estate in Noordhoek is a prime example in this sector, and presents a unique opportunity. “Located on the southern foothills of the Table Mountain chain in Noordhoek, Chapman’s Bay Estate is a once-in-a lifetime residential and investment offering, with competitively priced off-plan, luxury homes on generous erfs with breath-taking panoramic valley, ocean and mountain views,” says Greeff.
 
“With over 70 % of the available units sold out by Greeff Properties, the success of the estate is beyond question,” says developer Mark Tame, of Percipient Property. Roads, infrastructure, a guard house and a number of homes have not only been completed, but are now occupied and the growing Chapman’s Bay community is enjoying the relaxed lifestyle and tranquil surrounds with exceptional 24/7 manned and monitored security.
 
Walks around the estate with its exceptional views and naturally occurring wetlands are popular.  Proximity to schools, such as Reddam House, just over Ou Kaapse Weg, Westlake business centre, restaurants, shopping precincts and Noordhoek’s Farm Village and beaches allow for a lifestyle which caters for all tastes and requirements.
 
“The real estate of Chapman’s Bay Estate has grown exponentially in value since the launch of phase one in 2013, and investors have taken note. Given the demand for this kind of property, values are very likely to keep climbing, however current offerings are still competitively priced when compared to other security estates within a 20km radius,” says Greeff.
 
“Chapman’s Bay Estate offers plot, plot-and-plan as well as turnkey residential opportunities starting with two-bedroom townhouses priced from R3.75 million, through to high-end four-bedroom homes with panoramic views over Chapman’s Bay, priced from R5 521 million,” says Mike Greeff. He adds that the middle range offering comprises three-bedroom homes priced from R4.885 million.
 
“The architects have prepared optional design variations for the houses, while buyers can also opt to buy a plot and design their own dream home within our carefully considered design guidelines. We will offer a bouquet of approved builders, but a buyer is only entitled to use their own builders provided they are qualified master builders,” says Mark Tame. 
 
Ultimately, Chapman’s Bay Estate will comprise 145 homes set among  spectacular indigenous fynbos forests.
