The home owners’ association (HOA) of the prestigious Boschenmeer golf estate near Paarl has appointed the onsite Chas Everitt International office as its single “preferred agency” for the next two years.
“This is a real feather in our cap,” says Chas Everitt International MD Berry Everitt. “Boschenmeer is one of the top golf estates in the country and we are very proud of what has been achieved by Reon and Jaco an der Merwe, owners of our Notebook® licence for the estate.”
Reon van der Merwe, a 25-year veteran of the real estate industry, is a specialist in marketing golf and lifestyle estates who decided a couple of years ago to focus exclusively on Boschenmeer and established his Chas Everitt office on the estate, which is in the winelands of the beautiful Paarl/ Franschhoek valley and bisected by the Berg River.
He explains that the preferred status awarded by the HOA gives his agency exclusive rights to sales leads passed on by the HOA, and also means that it is the only company allowed to erect sale boards at the gates, distribute marketing material in the estate and advertise on the Boschenmeer website.
“It also covers homes to let on the estate and we are also very excited at the prospect of adding some of the exceptional homes here to our rental portfolio.”
Boschenmeer, which is 140ha in extent and boasts a 27-hole golf course designed by David Frost, contains some 520 homes, separated into different nodes to suit different lifestyle requirements.
Incorporating elements of Tuscan, Victorian and Cape Dutch styles, these homes range from two-bedroom townhouses to spacious family houses and impressive mansions, many of them offering spectacular views of the Drakenstein mountains as well as the fairways.
Home prices start at around R1,4m and facilities on the estate include a high-tech golf academy and driving range, a state-of-the-art club house, a pool and floodlit tennis courts as well as conference facilities. Security is excellent, and the estate is within easy reach of Cape Town as well as the many excellent schools in Paarl.
