Construction will begin next month (August 2012) on “Cap de Via” – the new small security village under development in Bloubergrant on Cape Town’s Western Seaboard.  Located on the corner of Arum and Popham Roads, the double-storey development will occupy a conveniently central location, within easy walking distance of the Blouberg beachfront and extensive retail and recreational facilities.  Pam Golding Properties (PGP) has the exclusive mandate to market the one-bedroomed apartments, which are priced from R389 000 to R435 000, inclusive of VAT.  Seven of the units have already been sold, leaving only six still available for purchase. 
PGP’s development manager for the Western Seaboard, Ivan Swart, says the apartments will make an ideal home for young single professionals, newly-married couples and younger retirees, as well as those looking for a secure lock-up-and-go holiday pad in Cape Town. 
“This is an excellent purchase for those who want to obtain a foothold in the property market, without stretching their budgets to impossible levels,” he says.  “The pricing is extremely competitive, being at least 10 to 15 percent lower than the typical asking price for similar sized units in the same area.  Security is excellent, with both access control and electrified perimeter fencing.  And for those who are reliant on public transport, it is particularly attractive, as the Blaauwberg Road IRT bus station is just 200m from the front door.  This means residents can commute to work without the stresses of traffic congestion and petrol price hikes.  Those who do have their own vehicles can park them safely in the allocated open-air parking bays, while fully-enclosed garages can be purchased at additional cost.”
Also close at hand is the recently-renovated Bayside Mall, with its extensive offering of shops, restaurants and entertainment, as well as a Virgin Active gym.  Further amenities and eateries can be found on the beachfront itself, which is just three blocks away from Cap de Via. 
PGP’s MD for the Western Cape metro region, Laurie Wener, says another selling point, especially for retirees, is the proximity to the state-of-the-art Netcare Blouberg Hospital.  “This development offers convenient modern living at its best,” she says, “in a low-maintenance, high security environment, close to major amenities and transport routes.  It is the ideal solution for those wanting to make their first property investment, or for those wanting to downscale to a safe and manageable environment, within easy walking distance of the magnificent beachfront.”
Occupation is expected in December 2012.  For more information, contact PGP’s development manager for the Western Seaboard, Ivan Swart, on 021 557 2415, 083 653 5620, or
