The highest home in Silversteen Estate - for sale

A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire a home in Silversteen Estate – one of the best-kept secrets of the Constantia Valley.  

Consisting of just 13 homes along a single access road, the secure estate occupies an elevated position on the slopes of Ou Kaapse Weg, with panoramic views across the valley and False Bay.  Silversteen was developed about 10 years ago, and comprises spacious and luxurious family homes, set on large erven of well over 1000sqm.  

The small community nestled among extensive vineyards, creates a warm, semi-rural atmosphere.  

Most residents are established families who have put down long-term roots in the estate - meaning that there is seldom an opportunity to purchase a home here.  Pam Golding Properties (PGP) now has the exclusive mandate to market the largest property in the estate, priced at R14.5 million.

PGP’s area manager for the Southern Suburbs, Howard Markham, says market statistics confirm the low turnover of homes in Silversteen Estate.  “Propstats figures show that just two properties have changed hands in the past three years, “ he says, “one being a vacant erf of 1550sqm, which was sold for R3.32 million in October 2009, and the other being a four-bedroomed home on 1487sqm, which sold for R8.25 million in August 2010.  

These low turnover figures are hardly surprising, given the appealing lifestyle on offer in Silversteen.  With its elevated position, spectacular views and small community, it is an ideal home for the well-heeled family, and one which residents are always reluctant to leave.   

The hi-tech security system is currently undergoing a substantial upgrade, including construction of a permanent guard house.  The estate is also extremely conveniently located, with easy access to the Blue Route highway, Reddam House school just a few minutes away, and major shopping and medical care available in nearby Tokai and Constantia.  

The cherry on top for lovers of the outdoors is that it is perfectly placed for access to the beaches of the South Peninsula and the magnificent array of hiking trails in the Silvermine area.”

In addition to being the largest erf in the estate, at close to 1700sqm, the property which has now come onto the market through PGP also occupies the highest possible elevation, with 360-degree views.  The imposing residence, built in 2003, offers over 1000sqm of living space, including five en-suite bedrooms and a guest suite with its own separate entrance.  

The open-plan living areas, including a gourmet cherry-wood kitchen and bar, are ideal for entertaining, and lead onto a large patio and rim-flow pool.  The landscaped fynbos garden includes an attractive water feature.  Other features of the home include a double-volume office or studio, a hobby room, and garaging for four vehicles.
