Capital growth in secure estates has been far higher than for ordinary homes with less emphasis on security.  Sole agent for a new development in Upper Claremont, Mark Upton says:  “Recent research shows that, particularly in today’s market, secure estates offer a shrewd investment.”  Upton Properties has just released The Highwick that offers six contemporary homes in the very best location in Upper Claremont.
One of only a handful of developments in the southern suburbs that has a 24-hour manned guard house and CCTV, The Highwick has six contemporary homes – all north facing – with private access to the Douglas Murray playing field, which itself has direct access to Herschel Girls School.  The Highwick meets most criteria and, with a launch price of R5.550 million including VAT and no transfer duty, a 10% deposit secures with the balance payable on completion in early 2011.
The Highwick’s features read like a wish list:  twenty-four hour manned security, a spacious newly built home with balconies and under-cover terraces, ample parking, solar geyser, under-floor heating, high ceilings, ensuite bathrooms throughout, sustainable hardwood floors, secure play area for children, access to a large green spaces, panoramic views, close proximity to shops and the best schools, gyms and the Newlands sports stadia.  “The Highwick certainly ticks off many things that people want today”, adds Upton, “and it’s in such a quiet, tree-lined street, that you could be mistaken for thinking you’re in the country.”
The Highwick is the latest development by Urban Space, founded by Brendan O’Brien and Paul Greenwood.  Other developments by Urban Space in Upper Claremont include Cross Trees Terrace, Mont Clair Terrace and The Constance. The directors of Urban Space put strong emphasis on high standards of craftsmanship and on after-sales customer care.
Highly desirable
“There always has been, and always will be, three golden rules when deciding on the purchase of your new home:  location, location, location”, says Urban Space’s Brendan O’Brien.  “Add to this a higher return on secure complexes, high quality features and The Highwick in Upper Claremont warrants its tag of ‘highly desirable’.”
Only released on Saturday 7 November, one house in The Highwick has been sold already with two more sales in negotiation.  Hurry while stocks last!
