Schools, accessibility drive Paradyskloof sales

The suburb of Paradyskloof lies 3km from the centre of Stellenbosch, and is highly sought-after by home-owners in search of a secure, family-oriented lifestyle.  


PGP has the exclusive mandate to market this upmarket home in Vallee Lustre at R8.5 million. The home occupies an erf of around 1000sqm, and offers around 500sqm of living space, including four bedrooms, three of them en suite, and four spacious reception areas.

The community consists mainly of family homes on good-sized plots, many of them with lovely mountain views.  Prices range from R2.5 million to R8.5 million. Pam Golding Properties (PGP) reports that its accessible location and selection of high quality schools are among the key factors driving sales.
 
PGP’s area manager for Stellenbosch, Louise Varga, says the suburb was only developed in the 1980’s, which means that most homes are still in excellent condition. It lies just off the R44 highway, providing easy access to the N2, Somerset West and the Techno Park business hub. Major employers including Parmalat and Medi-Clinic have their offices in the area. Yet the setting is one of suburban tranquillity, with the suburb surrounded by the foothills of the Stellenbosch mountains, leafy vineyards and several smallholdings. It is also particularly well-protected from the prevailing winds.
 
“Paradyskloof has its own convenience shopping with a Woolworths Food outlet, as well as two popular restaurants,” adds PGP agent Lizette Botha. “Nearby shopping centres include Die Boord centre and Stellenbosch Square, while the new Eikestad Mall is also very accessible, as are the Stellenbosch Medi-Clinic and the university. A new Superspar will be opening in Paradyskloof soon, which will only add to the convenience of living in this area. Golfers can walk to the Stellenbosch Golf Course, while the course at De Zalze is also nearby. There is also a wonderful network of mountain paths which can be enjoyed by cyclists, joggers and hikers alike.”
 
Schools are a major draw-card, and parents in the area have a range of options to choose from in both English and Afrikaans medium, pre-primary, primary and high schools. Within a 3km radius lie three of the top 20 schools in the Western Cape, based on the 2013 matric results – Rhenish Girls’ High, Paul Roos Gymnasium and Bloemhof High. A cycle path along the R44 means children can ride to school in safety, while the suburb’s central green belt has a playground for younger children as well as ample space for teens to play touch-rugby or soccer.
 
Within the suburb, one of the most highly-rated addresses is Vallee Lustre, an exclusive security complex consisting of just 14 properties. All of the erven except two have been fully developed, with work commencing on one of the final homes in March 2014. The development has a gated entrance and perimeter electric fencing, and is surrounded by farmland and vineyards, ensuring a peaceful atmosphere.
 
PGP has the exclusive mandate to market one of these upmarket homes at R8.5 million. The home occupies an erf of around 1000sqm, and offers around 500sqm of living space, including four bedrooms, three of them en suite, and four spacious reception areas.  There is excellent flow from the entertainment areas onto an enclosed patio with built-in braai and retractable glass doors, overlooking the swimming pool and immaculate garden.
 
“This warm family home blends English country charm with European style,” says Botha. “Its top-quality finishes include American walnut floors, Hansgrohe appliances, cherry-wood cabinets in the study and a modern kitchen finished with granite counter-tops and whitewashed maple cupboards. Other features include a wine cellar with capacity for 400 bottles, wooden sash windows with shutters, and two Morso fireplaces. The use of natural materials and stone-cladding ensure a timeless, wholesome appeal, and creates a warm family home.”
