New development meets growing demand for affordable housing in Wellington

A new development on the urban edge of Wellington in the Boland is perfectly positioned to meet the growing demand for affordable housing in the town. 

Stadsig lies on the outskirts of Wellington as one heads towards the scenic Bain’s Kloof Pass

So says Pam Golding Properties’ area manager for Wellington and Paarl, Surina du Toit, who believes “Stadsig” will help alleviate the current shortage of stock - coupled with high demand - in the price bracket from R750 000 to R1.5 million.
Du Toit says the demand in this price range is being driven by a recent influx of buyers relocating to the Boland town from either central Cape Town or the city’s Northern Suburbs. “This is prompted in part by the trend towards a more wholesome, family-centred lifestyle,” she says, “with buyers recognising the need to offer their children a more relaxed and laid-back childhood than can be achieved in the big city. The excellent schools on offer both in Wellington itself and nearby Paarl are a major draw-card for such families, as is the rich history and culture of the area and its scenic vineyards. The area is also growing in popularity as a weekend getaway for Capetonians, and is increasingly seen as a destination for good restaurants, wineries and function venues.”
PGP’s development manager Louise Varga adds that there is also growing demand from other buyer categories. “For older buyers, for example, the appeal of small-town living is considerable, provided they have access to good medical facilities and convenient amenities, all of which are available in Wellington. The result is that we are seeing a wide variety of buyers seeking a combination of affordability and security – both of which Stadsig delivers.”

Surrounded by rolling farmland and with 360 degree views of the Haweqa mountains and surrounding vineyards.
The development lies on the outskirts of Wellington as one heads towards the scenic Bain’s Kloof Pass, surrounded by rolling farmland and with 360 degree views of the Haweqa mountains and surrounding vineyards. The result is a semi-rural lifestyle – yet one that is easily accessible and has the additional benefit of a secure perimeter, with a 24 hour manned entrance, security boom and access control.
Stadsig will offer free-standing homes with contemporary Cape Vernacular architecture, sold on a full-title, plot and plan basis.  Pam Golding Properties has the exclusive mandate to market the project, with prices starting from R747 000, inclusive of VAT.
Phase One, currently launching to market, will consist of 22 erven, ranging in size from 200sqm to just over 350sqm. Ultimately the development will offer a total of 137 homes, with a wide variety of design options.  Buyers can choose from 12 different styles including both single-storey and double-storey homes, with either two bedrooms, three bedrooms or three bedrooms and a study.  All homes will have their own enclosed back gardens and paved driveways, as well as fittings such as granite kitchen counters and black steel braai-fireplaces.  Optional extras will include automated garages and additional lighting and data points.
