Wild about estate living

Those looking for an exclusive coastal lifestyle in a security estate will find it in the newly developed Cypraea Sands Lifestyle Estate, says Antoinette Clark, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Border, whose office services the coastal regions of the Wild Coast.

Situated just 30km northeast of East London, the eco-friendly private security estate can accommodate up to 77 classic homes all designed to strict architectural guidelines that ensure quality, yet do not restrict the individual’s unique tastes. According to Clark, all the buildings within the estate have also been designed and built to minimize the impact on the area’s natural landscape and the environment. The majority of the flora planted in the open gardens will be indigenous and solar panelling will be featured on each of the homes built. The estate also offers a water treatment plant, pumps at each house and water harvesting. Clark notes that each of the generously proportioned homes is individually positioned to ensure that the home is protected against the prevailing winds, while still taking advantage of the sunshine.

“Cypraea offers property buyers the opportunity to enjoy an eco-friendly, relaxed coastal environment and comfortable lifestyle within a tightly secured property, where security and safety are paramount. The concept of the estate has been created for those with the time and means to enjoy the finer things in life and it will appeal to both buyers looking for a primary residence or holiday home. Buyers are able to build within the estate according to their budget starting from around R2.3 million. There is private beach access along with a large variety of leisure and sporting facilities, either on the estate or within proximity, so whether wanting to relax or exercise, there is something for all to enjoy,” says Clark.

She notes that aside from the lifestyle on offer, the estate will also prove to be a remarkable investment over the long term due to the continual demand for property within secure estates. Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, agrees, saying that demand for upmarket estate living with the focus on both lifestyle and security has grown at an exceptional rate countrywide. He notes that in some areas demand for properties within such secure estates currently exceeds supply.  

According to Clark, a unique feature of the estate is that purchasers within the Lifestyle Estate are entitled to life rights in order of purchase and availability within the Cypraea Sands Seniors Village, a proposed retirement village with 30 life right units and full medical care facilities managed by Berea Gardens Retirement Foundation. These units will all be two-bedroom semi-detached homes with two bathrooms and priced from R1 350 000 all inclusive.  The developer plans to build the entire Senior’s Village once ten pre-sales are concluded.

The specialised healthcare facility will be established on the estate to provide medical care to the seniors’ village as well as assist with medical emergencies within the lifestyle estate. The medical centre will have a resident doctor and clinic along with a full range of assisted living and frail care facilities. According to Clark, the houses in the estate have been designed to accommodate live-in caregivers should the residents require them.

“Top quality retirement property is scarce in East London and there is often a waiting list that spans many years. The fact that the retirement village is being built is great news, not only for East Londoners, but for all retirees or those looking to retire in the near future and are looking for a secure and relaxed retirement life.   This will provide an attractive alternative to inner-city living and all the facilities of Cypraea Sands Lifestyle Estate will be available to Cypraea Seniors,” Clark concludes.
