Exclusive secure estate launched in Durbanville
A boutique gated estate has been launched to market in Proteaville, one of the most exclusive parts of Durbanville in Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs.
Located in a quiet, tree-lined avenue, “Somerton Place” occupies 2ha of prime land, located close to leading amenities and recreational facilities. Pam Golding Properties has the exclusive mandate to market the development’s homes and vacant erven, with prices starting from just R840 000, inclusive of VAT.
PGP’s area manager for the Northern Suburbs, Maureen Nel, says the estate will ultimately consist of 23 homes, built in accordance with architectural guidelines to ensure a cohesive design theme. “This will integrate traditional Italian architectural elements with the use of modern technology and natural building materials,” she says, “creating an attractive environment that offers classic elegance combined with modern convenience. Services including paved roadways are already in place, and the estate is peppered with established trees, providing numerous shady green areas. A gatehouse and electric fencing provide peace of mind for residents.”
The vacant plots on offer range in size from 650sqm to 860sqm, and are priced from R840 000 to R1.16 million, inclusive of VAT. Alternatively, buyers can purchase a fully built, individually custom-designed home, with layouts offering three to five bedrooms, priced from R3 million to R4.5 million, inclusive of VAT.
PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg regions (incorporating the Northern Suburbs), Annien Borg, says the estate provides a rare opportunity to purchase full title properties and vacant erven within a secure, exclusive environment, located in one of the most sought-after sections of the Northern Suburbs. “Somerton Place is centrally situated, close to every major amenity one could wish for,” she says, “including the Durbanville Medi-Clinic and major retail stores. Families with school-going children will enjoy the close proximity to top schools such as Durbanville Hoërskool, Fairmont High, the private Chesterhouse and Curro schools, and numerous primary schools. Sports-lovers will thrive on the easy access to the Durbanville Golf Course, Durbanville Sports Club, a Virgin Active gym, horse-riding schools and trails, plus a network of world-class mountain-bike trails in the area. And of course the renowned Durbanville wine route is almost on the doorstep, offering nine award-winning estates such as Altydgedacht, Meerendal, Diemersdal, Nitida and Durbanville Hills. This is the ideal home for anyone from families to mature professionals or retirees seeking a peaceful, attractive and secure environment that is nevertheless still centrally located for convenient modern living.”
The estate’s first home has just been completed, and is ready for occupation from 1 May 2012. The four bedroomed home occupies an erf of just over 700sqm and has over 430sqm of living space, including three bathrooms, plus a triple garage. Spacious reception rooms and an open-plan gourmet kitchen with separate scullery/laundry create the ideal environment for entertaining and easy family living. A large entertainment room with a built-in braai opens into the garden, with aluminium stacker and sliding doors creating excellent indoor/outdoor flow. Quality finishes include travertine tiles, solid timber doors and imported granite kitchen tops. The property is on the market at R3.9 million inclusive of VAT.
