Top private schools on the rise in a new Cape Town neighbourhood

A new suburb situated in Brackenfell, Cape Town - Burgundy Estate - which was created from the ground up has attracted many buyers, with only 10% of the hundred Trinity homes still available.

This interest has meant that an array of amenities have been built, including two new private schools  which was designed specifically to serve its residents.

Construction on the schools has been undertaken and are planned to be ready for the 2015 academic year. The suburb has attracted many young families due to the easy access to schools children will enjoy once they are ready.

According to Trinity Projects, the developers of Burgundy, their success in attracting Curro Private Schools to the area, combined with the quality of the homes and pleasing neighbourhood aesthetic has played a major role in making the suburb attractive to buyers looking for a high quality of life for their families.
Burgundy was designed to become a self-contained, landscaped and integrated suburb. Within months of its launch, the concept proved to be a near sell-out success. They sold a staggering R130-million worth of brand new homes in the first few months, currently the only homes left for purchase are those situated in the security group housing development known as Figaro.

“We believe that our approach at Burgundy will set the future standard for a new kind of approach to housing development,” says Le Roy Viljoen, co-director of Trinity Projects, a boutique property development company.

With the R100 million schools development another development promise is being fulfilled by the developers. The Curro Primary School will be able to cater to 1200 learners, while the Curro Castle Pre-Primary will be able to accommodate 400 youngsters. The schools are planning to open their doors at the commencement of the 2015 academic year. Families who bought homes in the Trinity development of Burgundy have been guaranteed placement in the schools, and also won’t be required to pay any registration or administrative fees.

“There is such huge demand for these new kinds of suburbs, which offer modern infrastructure, safety, easy access to important amenities, and a sense of belonging and neighbourliness,” says Viljoen.

“Although we knew we were onto a winning concept in terms of our collaboration with Curro, we never envisaged the level of demand that came in the wake of our announcement of the development a little more than a year ago.  Each new phase was sold out even before completion of construction.”

“Another major contributing factor to the early sell out is the Trinity turn-key concept. Homeowners buy completed houses which gives them access to readily available funding at any one of the recognised banks. In turn the Trinity brand ensures quality and on-time delivery of the built product.”

“The suburb has become tremendously sought-after, particularly among young families. The design of the area is reminiscent of the suburbs of old, with the attractive, value-for-money homes set on a streetscape where children can safely play in the area with convenient access to great schools.”

Viljoen says the remaining homes, which are between the R1.3 million to R2 million mark, are expected to go fast. Trinity is already looking at several similar projects in the Northern Suburbs region, to supply the overwhelming demand.

“Homeowners are looking to simplify their lives and this requires new thinking by developers to create new-style projects which best meet their needs.  Property development has become an art, requiring new strategies and closer co-operation between the private and public sectors,” he says.
