First homes sold in new retirement village

So says Deon Esterhuyse of marketing agency Aida Onrus, who notes that groundworks for the development, named Twee Fonteine, have already been completed and that the community centre at the heart of the village is due for completion by the end of next year.

“Meanwhile, although building has just started on the first free-standing home in the village, which will serve as a showhouse, six of the homes have already been sold, and enquiries are being received daily.”

There will ultimately be 75 full title homes in the development, as well as 42 sectional title units, he explains. “The full title units, ranging in size from 128sqm to 183sqm, will all have two bathrooms and two or three bedrooms plus a single or double garage, as well as a spacious veranda. There will also be the option of an added braai room at a cost of below R4 000/sqm.

“Sited on stands ranging in size from 252sqm to 498sqm, these homes are being sold on a plot-and-plan basis at prices from R1,325m to R1,8m, and buyers will have 12 months from the date they purchase the stand to start building.”

The sectional title units, ranging in size from 28sqm right up to 83sqm, will be incorporated in the central building housing the community centre, which will also contain a kitchen, dining room, ladies’ bar and lounge, assisted living and frail-care facilities. Prices for these units currently range from R560 000 to R1,66m. All prices include VAT.

Esterhuyse says this is an ideal investment opportunity for those who would like to rent their units out prior to their own retirement in future.

He notes that the whole development will enjoy a high level of security, with a single guarded access point and a perimeter wall topped with electric fencing.
“Each home will also be equipped with a panic button connecting it to the nursing station in the community centre, and Elcare, which operates in many retirement villages around the country, will provide professional medical care.”

Finance is available for qualified purchasers.
