Security upgrades boost peace of mind at Atlantic Beach Estate

The Atlantic Beach Estate, located on the Cape West Coast just a few kilometres north of Blouberg, is fast approaching full maturity. 


This four-bedroomed home in Atlantic Beach Estate has both fairway and mountain views. Occupying an erf of just over 800sqm, the property has lovely entertainment areas clustered around a pool, including under-cover patios and a built-in braai. Other features include a designer kitchen, study and large enclosed garden. The property is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R4.295 million. 

Established in 1999 primarily as a golfing haven, the estate has since developed into a secure family lifestyle estate, offering numerous appealing features to attract not just golf-lovers but also young families, retirees and empty-nesters who are down-scaling after their children have left home. Pam Golding Properties (PGP) reports that recent security and infrastructure upgrades have further boosted the appeal of the estate, offering improved peace of mind for residents without intruding on their privacy or magnificent surroundings.

PGP’s area principle for the Western Seaboard, Emarie Campbell, says the estate offers more than 890 properties, of which just nine vacant erven are still available for development. The offering ranges from affordable apartments and townhouses to cluster and family homes as well as luxury top-end properties. These homes are grouped in 14 villages, all named after famous shipwrecks and golf courses, and all scattered around the 18-hole links golf course that forms the backbone of the estate. The surrounding landscape includes large tracts of pristine fynbos and sand-dunes, sweeping down to the Atlantic Ocean.


This home in Atlantic Beach Estate is ideal for those who love to entertain, offering superb flow from its spacious open-plan reception areas to a wind-protected patio with built-in braai. The home has four double en-suite bedrooms, a study and triple garage plus staff accommodation and a pool. Occupying an erf of 1000sqm, it is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R6.25 million. 

Campbell says security has always been a major selling point of the estate and a major draw-card for buyers – and this appeal has only been boosted by recent extensive upgrades to the security system. “The estate now offers state-of-the-art security utilising the very latest technology to ensure a safe and peaceful environment,” she says. “At any given time, there are emergency response officers on duty who are trained in fire-fighting and first aid. And to improve emergency response capability, the estate has concluded a preferred client agreement with ER24, ensuring swift medical response if any resident requires assistance.”



Pricing on the estate currently starts at around R1.2 million to R1.5 million for a two-bedroomed apartment, with smaller cluster or townhouses fetching between R1.5 million and R2 million. Free-standing homes with three or four bedrooms can be priced anywhere from R2.5 million to R4.5 million, depending on location within the estate, size of erf and proximity to the fairways. “Larger homes with a study, pool and double garage will typically fetch between R4.5 million and R6.5 million, says Campbell, “while the top-end luxury homes with fairway and sea views, luxury features, guest and staff accommodation can fetch up to R11 million. The highest demand at present is for houses below R3 500 000 million – mainly for young families. One factor in common throughout all price brackets is the search for excellent security.”

Family buyers make up a large percentage of Atlantic Beach residents, and it’s easy to see why – the estate offers an unparalleled environment for children to enjoy. Besides a wealth of community events and activities, youngsters can participate in a Junior Golf Academy, make use of the communal Leisure Centre with its swimming pool, tennis courts and fitness centre, or exercise on an extensive network of jogging and cycling paths. There are two large play-parks for younger children to enjoy, while the pristine beachfront offers safe surfing and kite-surfing, plus a slipway for launching small boats. Residents also have access to the golf club restaurant and a monthly Farmer’s Market.



Another positive factor for buyers to consider is the overall viability of Atlantic Beach, Campbell adds. “A new CEO, Harry White, formerly of Steenberg Golf Estate, took office in late 2011, and has applied healthy business principles and a strong emphasis on community culture within the estate. By implementing sound financial management practices and significant restructuring, he has ensured the long-term viability of the estate. The sheer size and scope of Atlantic Beach also ensures that the estate is somewhat immune to customary problems such as arrear levies – with over 890 properties contributing to the levies, the estate is financially resilient.”
