Iconic property for sale in top Winelands estate

Bel’Aire Winelands Estate is one of the most prestigious secure developments in the Winelands, occupying an elevated position on the eastern edge of Somerset West. 


Pam Golding Properties (PGP) has the exclusive mandate to market this iconic home in Bel’Aire Winelands Estate, Somerset West, at R16.995 million.

Many homes in this secure residential estate command panoramic views over False Bay, the Boland mountain ranges and even all the way to Table Mountain.
 
PGP agent Thea Albertyn says Bel’Aire Winelands Estate was established in the late 1990’s, and consists of a little over 200 properties, all but five of them fully developed. The secure estate enjoys 24-hour guarded access with perimeter patrols in the evenings, shelter from the prevailing winds, and a high level of privacy. The average selling price in 2013 was R3.93 million, but prices can range well above R10 million for the larger and more luxurious homes. PGP achieved the highest price ever on the estate in 2011, with a sale of R13.3 million.
 
Fourteen properties changed hands on the estate last year (2013). “This is an area of very stable property ownership,” says Albertyn, “with 90 percent of residents having lived here for over 11 years. Residents have always been dominated by those in the 36-65 age group, but in recent years we have seen a small but notable increase in the number of younger and middle-aged buyers. For this age group, the proximity of Somerset College private school is a big selling point – the estate is very popular with parents at the school, who enjoy its child-friendly environment and the easy commute to school.”


The sophisticated contemporary home was built about six years ago. It occupies a substantial plot of close to 3700sqm, with sweeping views towards Table Mountain and False Bay.
 
Proximity to the R44 highway is another key selling point, as it provides easy access to Stellenbosch and its university, as well as to work opportunities including Techno Park. The N2 is also easily accessible, meaning that Cape Town International Airport can be reached within 20 minutes. “Major amenities are also close at hand,” says PGP’s area manager for Somerset West, Louise Varga, “with the huge Somerset Mall under 4km away, and the upmarket Waterstone Shopping Mall with its adjacent Virgin Active gym under 3km away.”
 
Properties currently on the market range from R3.8 million in price, to a luxurious triple-storey home in Place de la Chance, on the market at R16.995 million. The latter is a sophisticated contemporary home designed by Archen architecture, and was built about six years ago. It occupies a substantial plot of close to 3700sqm, with sweeping views towards Table Mountain and False Bay. The home has over 1100sqm of living space including four luxury bedroom suites, with the master suite offering his and hers dressing rooms. There are four large reception rooms as well as an open-plan gourmet kitchen with Miele appliances and separate scullery and pantry. Other luxury features include a heated rim-flow pool, two fully-equipped bars, a sweeping marble staircase, elevator and eat-in wine cellar. The home also offers an 18-seater cinema, gym, hobby room and library, staff accommodation, and garaging for three vehicles. Separate from the main house is a characterful tavern with a pizza oven and electric spit-braai, ideal for casual entertaining.
 
The landscaped gardens are watered by a borehole, and include a koi pond and other water features as well as a gazebo, small vineyard, olive grove and hydroponic garden tunnel.
