New residential village for acclaimed wine estate

Situated about 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town in the Wellington Valley, the estate is one of the most successful and highly-acclaimed of its kind in the Cape Winelands, offering a tranquil environment, excellent security and a beautiful scenic location.  The existing residential portion consists of 64 houses and smallholdings, including a number of luxury top-end properties, scattered throughout the vineyards and olive groves.  

PGP reports that the new portion, known as “The Village”, presents the opportunity to experience this sought-after rural lifestyle in beautiful homes, ranging in price from R699 000 to R1.47 million, inclusive of VAT and transfer costs.

The Village comprises 110 stands which range in size from 220sqm to 550sqm, and which are situated between the estate’s restaurant and wine cellar and its main entrance. The choice of off-plan homes includes several different options with either two or three bedrooms. Buyers can also have their home custom-designed within the architectural guidelines, which will ensure that all buildings blend with the surrounding countryside and neighbouring properties. Owners have a choice of fine finishes and are therefore able to customise their new homes to their personal taste.

PGP’s Project Manager for The Village, Louise Varga, says the pricing is extremely competitive, particularly given the high quality of the homes and the exceptional facilities available to owners on the estate. “Purchasers will have access to the full range of estate facilities,” she says.  

“These include an on-site restaurant, beauty spa, guest accommodation and a gardening service. The Village has its own swimming pool, and residents have full access to an extensive network of hiking, cycling and horse-riding trails through the forests and vineyards. This is relaxed country living at its very best – magnificent views of the Bainskloof and Du Toitskloof mountains, award-winning vineyards on your doorstep, and an atmosphere of informal elegance.  All this, within a secure, prestigious estate just 40 minutes’ drive from an international airport.  It’s the opportunity to enjoy all of the benefits of living on an historic wine farm, with none of the responsibilities.”

A unique feature of the Diemersfontein estate and particularly attractive to family buyers is an on-site private school – Wellington Preparatory. The co-ed school accommodates children to Grade 7, with a maximum of 20 learners per class. This limited class size allows teachers to focus on the needs of the individual, creating a healthy learning environment with a strong focus on ecological issues. The school offers a full range of academic subjects as well as drama, music, art and physical education. An extensive sporting and extra-mural programme includes disciplines such as cricket, soccer, swimming, ballet and karate.  There are also after-care facilities to assist children of working parents.  

“Residents of The Village will have guaranteed admission to the school,” says PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg regions, Annien Borg, “and the value of this cannot be underestimated.  There is such competition to get children into high-quality schools in the current educational environment, that to have a private school on your doorstep, where you know your children will be nurtured in a completely safe environment, is worth its weight in gold. And the fees are extremely reasonable for a private school – just R9000 to R15000 per annum, on a sliding scale according to grade.”

Services and other infrastructure are already fully installed, and buyers can take occupation of their brand new homes within four months of purchase.
