Pam Golding Properties marketing two new affordable developments

The Athlone and Elsies River offices of Pam Golding Properties are currently marketing two new developments in the Western Cape which are brought to the market by Asrin Property Developments.  

At Aurora Village in Belhar construction is already well underway and on track at Aurora Villas - a sectional title, affordable housing development which is filling the gap in the market for affordable homes with quality finishes. In regard to this development Asrin is in a joint venture project with International Housing Solutions.

The 7 714sqm development comprises 96 apartments in ground, first and second floor walk-up blocks. The ground floor units will have private gardens, which add great value to these apartments. This is a lifestyle development, which will include a communal swimming pool, clubhouse, laundry drying yards, access control at the gates and a manned guardhouse.

The prices at Aurora Villas range from R399 990 to R445 390 for 45sqm apartments with two bedrooms and one bathroom. Finishes and features include open plan kitchens with post-form countertops, bathroom fittings and fixtures and a selection of carpets, ceramic tiles and laminated flooring options in the living areas and bedrooms.

The development is ideal for first time home buyers, those who are downscaling and buy-to-let investors. Being close to the Cape Peninsula University of Technology’s Bellville campus and UWC, it is ideal for investors who want to rent to students.

The development is situated on the corner of Kanna and Suikerbos Roads in an established, older part of Belhar, with a primary school within walking distance and easy access to the Airport Shopping Mall and N2 and R300 arterial routes.

The second development is Vanguard Residential Village in Heideveld, located on the corner of Vanguard and Klipfontein roads. Phase one will consist of 102 two-bedroomed apartments and 33 single residential units. The development will be built with additional access to the complex from Heideveld Road, next to the Nico Malan Nursing Home.

The 274 homes are designed in a Cape Tuscan style, with earthy grey tones and red tiled roofs. Housing options include 68sqm freestanding, two-bedroom houses on plots ranging in size from 152sqm and priced at R629 900. The 64sqm two-bedroom, semi-detached homes on plots sized from 153sqm are priced at R549 900, while prices for the 45sqm sectional title apartments in two and three storey walk-ups range from R399 900 to R419 900. All prices include VAT and transfer costs.

In addition, all homes will be fitted with heat pumps for hot water and gas stoves in the kitchens, helping to save on two of the main sources of high electricity bills. There will be many private spaces in the development, as well as safe communal park areas and clubhouses that will also be used as day care centres. The entrance and exit to the development will be monitored by guards and the complex will be surrounded by a wall.

Vanguard Residential Village is on the route of the future Rapid Transit System in this area and close to public transport. It is a few minutes’ drive from the Vangate Shopping Mall and has easy access to the N2 and M5.
