New phase launched at Longlands Country Estate

A new phase of 14 additional erven has been launched to market at Longlands Country Estate, the prestigious lifestyle development located some seven kilometers outside Stellenbosch.

Marketed exclusively by Pam Golding Properties, the new “Country Phase” will offer smaller erven at affordable prices, boosting the residential offering on the property to a total of 92 units.  Forty-two of the erven in the original phase have already been sold, at a total value of over R72 million.  PGP says the first residents have already completed building and taken occupation of their homes.

PGP’s development manager Louise Varga says the lifestyle on offer at Longlands has made it very popular with a variety of buyers, from professionals with young families to high-profile business executives and even retirees.  “All of them have been drawn here by the spectacular setting with beautiful mountain and vineyard views, attractive communal spaces and the hi-tech security and telecoms infrastructure,” she says. “The estate totals over 80ha, of which just 10ha has been allocated for residential use, meaning that it will retain its tranquil, rural character with a low density built footprint. The remaining space is allocated to vineyards, dams, play-parks and even a cricket oval, with the landscaping expected to be completed by the end of this year (2012). This safe, contemporary lifestyle is ideal for those raising a family or contemplating retirement, or simply looking for a quiet retreat after a fast-paced day in the corporate world.  The new product offering of the Country Phase now places this enviable lifestyle within reach of a wider range of buyers.”

The 14 erven in the Country Phase are all sized at 600sqm, and are priced between R995 000 and R1.3 million.  The remaining 36 erven in the original phase are sized between 700sqm and 1246sqm, with prices ranging from R1.49 million to R2.9 million.

PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg regions, Annien Borg, says the estate’s architectural guidelines allow buyers to build their dream homes with individual character, within a cohesive design theme.  “Five homes are already completed and occupied,” she says, “with another three nearing completion, and a further three about to break ground.  With the communal spaces and state-of-the-art security infrastructure also nearing completion, Longlands will soon develop into a thriving community.  We would urge potential buyers to come and view the spectacular location for themselves, so as to fully appreciate the wonderful lifestyle on offer.”
