Top schools and convenient location drive demand in “Die Boord”

The popular Stellenbosch suburb of Die Boord continues to attract strong demand from family buyers, thanks to its central location and proximity to some of the town’s leading schools. 


This spacious family home is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties at R4.25 million. The immaculately-maintained family home has three bedrooms and four spacious reception areas, as well as a triple garage.

Pam Golding Properties (PGP) reports that its attractive homes and quiet setting alongside farmland and the Eerste River make it a favourite for those wishing to raise their children in a family-friendly environment, where children can still play in the neighbourhood and walk to school in safety.
 
“The suburb lies within the catchment area of a number of leading schools, both English and Afrikaans medium,” says PGP’s area manager for Stellenbosch, Louise Varga. “These include some of the top-achieving schools in the province – within a radius of just a kilometre or two from Die Boord lie three of the top 20 schools in the Western Cape, as ranked on the provincial education department’s 2013 list of Excellence in Academic Performance. Hoër Meisieskool Bloemhof was sixth on that list, with Paul Roos Gimnasium in 8th and Rhenish Girls’ High in 13th. Eikestad Primary and Rhenish Primary are also within walking distance of most homes in Die Boord, as are several excellent pre-primary schools.”
 
Despite its tranquil setting, Die Boord is flanked by several arterial roads including Adam Tas and the R44, which offer convenient access to the centre of Stellenbosch or to Cape Town and its international airport. Also located in the suburb is the Stellenbosch Medi-Clinic, as well as the Ipic Shopping Centre, which offers a Superspar, take-away outlets, a pharmacy with day clinic and beauty spa, as well as banks, a vet and a post office. “There is everything one could need for day to day living, almost within walking distance,” says PGP agent for the area, Lizaan Fourie.


The property has excellent flow from its open-plan living areas onto a covered patio with built-in braai and security shutters.
 

Die Boord is dominated by freehold homes, with only a handful of sectional title properties on offer. Prices range from R1 million to R3.4 million for the sectional title homes, and from R2 million to R5 million for freehold properties, depending on the size of the erf and condition of the property. Many owners have enjoyed significant growth in their capital value, says Varga – for instance, a home purchased for R2.95 million in 2008 was sold for R3.995 million in 2013 – an average annual growth of 14.64 percent.
 
Among the properties currently on the market in Die Boord, exclusively through Pam Golding Properties, is an immaculately-maintained family home with three bedrooms and four spacious reception areas, as well as a triple garage. The property has excellent flow from its open-plan living areas onto a covered patio with built-in braai and security shutters.  The large garden contains a saltwater-chlorinated swimming pool, while the home’s upmarket finishes include travertine tiles, American shutters, air-conditioning and under-floor heating. The property occupies an erf of 868sqm, and is on the market at R4.25 million.
