Applegarth is proud to announce the successful conclusion of civil works, completion of the gate house and the majority of the landscaping on site. Finally, potential investors will be able to appreciate the vision of the estate and see the tremendous effort the team has put into the layout, architecture and landscaping to create an exceptional living environment.
Managing Director of Flagstone Property Development, Magnus McDowall, shares his experience of the process, “The development of Applegarth has proceeded smoothly and the excellent uptake from buyers is clear evidence that quality will sell, despite market conditions. With interest picking up, and with a third of the properties already sold, it is only a matter of time before the rest of the properties are snapped up. The upcoming Open Day may be the last opportunity for buyers in this exceptional boutique estate – the quality of design, the gate house, the comprehensive security and hard/soft landscaping is clear to see and sets us apart.”
Existing purchasers have taken transfer and are eager to begin work on their homes. The estate offers plots, or a choice of three, four- and five-bedroom contemporary styled homes within an indigenous landscaped environment. Prices for homes range between R5.725 million and R9.575 million, VAT inclusive and no transfer duties are payable.
Applegarth shows respect for the setting and ecological sensitivity in the overall layout, choice of materials, landscaping and colour schemes. Individual homes have been designed to take advantage of light, space and position. With an abundance of naturally established vegetation and trees that create privacy, and exceptional views, the utmost care has been taken to ensure a natural feel to the estate.
Mike Greeff, CEO of Greeff Christie’s International Real Estate, shares his thoughts on the development, “Applegarth is exactly what so many buyers are looking for. It is a boutique secure estate in a prime location and the exceptional quality of architecture in the contemporary designs, coupled with quality finishes have been paired with an eco-friendly mindfulness making it a truly remarkable development”.
Security at Applegarth is designed in layers to provide the ultimate peace of mind with a 24-hour manned entrance and gate house, high specification electrified fencing, thermal imaging cameras monitored off site, and an internal security “clear” zone. Access onto the estate is also strictly controlled through the use of biometric fingerprint scanners, scanners for driver’s licences and ID’s of all contractors, which adds yet more comprehensive layers of security. Security paired with the ultimate convenience makes Applegarth the epitome of lock-up and go comfort.
Each home in the estate is located on sensibly sized plots that allow for room to enjoy the surroundings without being impractical and costly to maintain, something purchasers are increasingly conscious of. The contemporary architectural style reflects the needs and desires of a modern home owner whilst demonstrating ecological sensitivity through the use of a range of active and passive green building technologies, indigenous planting and boreholes for the irrigation of open areas of the estate. An investment in this development represents outstanding value for money and with the properties attractively priced, the value is likely only to increase, particularly given the premium value increasingly associated with gated estates. There will never be a better time than now to stake your claim in this piece of paradise.
This tranquil estate is a sanctuary that offers the perfect seclusion and space with its character deeply rooted in its natural heritage. Applegarth is centrally located to fantastic schools and academic institutions such as the International School of Hout Bay, Llandudno and Kronendal Primary Schools, Hout Bay Montessori and also the Kronendal Music Academy.
There are a number of popular restaurants in the area, and the estate is in close proximity to the conveniences of both Hout Bay and the Southern Suburbs. Applegarth is close to major roadways and the drive from Applegarth into the CBD takes in the world class Cape coastline scenery.
