Construction underway at Diemersfontein

Construction is underway on Phase One and a second phase has already been launched to market at “The Village” – the new residential development which is taking shape on the Diemersfontein Wine and Country Estate.  Located in the Wellington Valley, just 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, the secure estate is renowned for its magnificent scenic setting, upmarket country homes and award-winning wines (Diemersfontein vintages have been recognised at, amongst others, the Michelangelo International Wine Awards and SA Terroir Wine Awards).

“The Village” offers buyers the opportunity to acquire this sought-after country lifestyle at extremely competitive prices.  Pam Golding Properties has the exclusive mandate to market the new phase of 31 units, which offers buyers a choice of off-plan home designs.  The properties are priced from R699 000 to R1.47 million, inclusive of VAT and transfer costs.

PGP’s project manager for the development, Louise Varga, says 17 of the 19 erven in Phase One have already been sold since their launch to market in September 2011.  Seven of these properties already have homes under construction, with another four owners due to commence building in January 2012.  “Over half the buyers are existing Boland residents, most of them from the Paarl and Wellington area,” she says.  “It’s clear that locals leapt at the opportunity to acquire a home in this acclaimed estate, recognising not only the superb lifestyle on offer, but also the potential for return on investment.  

Thirteen of the buyers intend to make Diemersfontein their primary place of residence, while the others bought for holiday and investment purposes.  Most were in the age group under 40, which is not surprising given the clear suitability of this environment for young families.  The draw-card of an on-site English medium private school, Wellington Preparatory, is a key factor for buyers in this category, as is the estate’s excellent security.”

The erven in Phase Two range in size from 238sqm to 488sqm, and there is a choice of eight different designs for either two- or three bedroomed homes.  Buyers can customise their home to their personal taste from a broad range of finishes and design options.  These guidelines ensure all buildings blend in harmoniously with the environment.

The Village will ultimately include a total of 114 homes, with additional phases still to be rolled out at a later date.  All residents will have access to the full range of estate facilities, including 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 surrounding forests and vineyards.
