Prime location, affordable pricing at “Azure on Big Bay”

For those who love the coastal sporting lifestyle, there can be few locations more sought-after than Big Bay on the Cape’s Western Seaboard. 

An artist’s impression of “Azure on Big Bay”, now on offer through Pam Golding Properties (PGP). Located less than 300m from the water’s edge, the sectional title development will include 84 apartments, sized between 50sqm and 117sqm. Prices range from R850 000 to R2.99 million, including VAT and with no transfer duties applicable. 

Not only does it offer a pristine sandy beachfront with picture-postcard views of Table Mountain and Robben Island, but it also plays host to some of the world’s top windsurfing and kite-boarding events. This global reputation has played no small role in the development of the Big Bay residential area, which today boasts a cosmopolitan mix of residents, including numerous international sportspeople who are drawn to the opportunity to live right alongside their favourite sporting playground, with shopping, restaurants and other amenities on their doorstep.
With the Big Bay residential area starting to approach maturity, there are just two remaining opportunities for new sectional title complexes to be built – one of which, “Azure on Big Bay”, is now on offer through Pam Golding Properties (PGP). The luxury residential development fuses the charm of small town beachside living with the convenience of contemporary living, and offers a mix of excellent security, easy beach access and modern comfort. Located less than 300m from the water’s edge, the sectional title development will include 84 apartments, arranged in three-storey blocks around a communal garden and swimming pool, with elevator access at three points.
PGP’s area principal for the Western Seaboard, Emarie Campbell, says the development offers buyers a choice of one-, two- or three-bedroomed apartments, sized between 50sqm and 117sqm. Prices range from R850 000 to R2.99 million, including VAT and with no transfer duties applicable. “This is extremely competitive pricing for this area, particularly given the complex’s proximity to the beachfront and the Eden on the Bay shopping centre,” she says. “The only other new sectional title development will be located substantially further away from the beachfront, so this is really the last remaining opportunity to move into a brand new home within such easy walking distance of the water.”
Apartments at Azure will have superior finishes, including granite kitchen counter-tops, aluminium windows and a choice of carpets, tiles or laminated wood flooring. Many units will have sea views across Big Bay towards Table Mountain and Robben Island. Campbell notes that the building has been designed for maximum protection from the prevailing winds, and will offer the only private pool reserved for residents’ use in the entire Big Bay area.
“Security is another major draw-card for this development,” she says. “Not only is it fully enclosed with a gated entrance off Otto du Plessis Drive, but it will have additional access control layers at the basement parking entrance and into the apartment blocks themselves. One-bedroomed apartments will be allocated a single parking bay, with larger units having two bays each, and further space is allocated for visitor parking.”
Thanks to improvements in the local road network and public transport infrastructure, central Cape Town is now accessible from this area within half an hour, making it an ideal base for those who wish to work in town but come home to surf or sail at the end of the working day.
Given this accessibility, as well as the competitive pricing, it is no surprise that several first-time buyers are among those who have already purchased their apartments at Azure. Campbell says the buyer mix to date includes a combination of owner-occupiers, investors and those buying for holiday use. “Given the high demand for rental property in the area, this is a sound purchase opportunity for investors,” she says.
Construction is expected to begin by July 2014, with transfer anticipated in December 2015.

Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives.
