Building of over 50s village in Scottburgh "moving at pace"

Construction at Lake View Lifestyle Village for the over 50’s in Scottburgh is moving at a pace. A show unit has been completed enabling potential buyers to see the design and standard of finishes, and a further six units are complete, according to a media release from marketing agents Wakefields Estate Agents.

The development will comprise 88 cottages and 32 apartments built around a lake and central complex that will provide entertainment as well as limited medical care.

Built in face brick the simplex cottage units range in size from 145 square metres to 173 square metres and each have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study, granite top kitchen with under counter oven and hob and double electric lock-up garage. The living areas are tiled and the bedrooms carpeted.

The central complex overlooking a lake comprises two floors of apartments. The 14 ground floor apartments are a spacious 85 square metres with one-bedroom en suite bathroom and open plan lounge, dining room, kitchen and a balcony or garden. There are seven lake facing and seven garden units.

Also on the ground floor is the central area with a lounge/games room, a pub, library, hairdresser, convenience store, and a gym with an indoor heated swimming pool.

The second floor of the complex has 28 bed-sit or studio apartments each about 41 square metres with a bathroom and small kitchen. This floor also has a residents’ dining room served by a full kitchen, and there are 10 assisted living wards with doctor’s room and nurse’s station.

The property is fenced with palisade fencing that is electrified and the main entrance guard room is linked to a 24hr armed response unit.

A big draw card for Lake View is that it is pet friendly, close to the Scottburgh main beach, the Scottburgh Mall and golf course as well as many others along the south coast including Selbourne.

Bed-sit units are priced from R485 000, one-bedroom units from R725 000 and the cottages from R1, 095 million.

The thing about the property ladder is that at some point in our lives we all have reason to want to climb a rung or two higher.

Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives. Sometimes, it’s just because we want a property that reflects the financial status our hard work has won.
