Picture yourself waking up with the distant sounds of birds chirping in the peaceful surrounds of the Stellenbosch winelands, having your favourite hot drink on the balcony overlooking the early morning golfers or the grape-pickers pruning their vines – each and every day.
The residential development began at Devonvale Golf and Wine Estate 17 years ago, in 2000. 79 of the 80 houses were built under the careful guidance of Devonmust (Pty) Ltd CEO, JJ Provoyeur.
Great care was taken by the architects, Dennis Moss Partnership, to design each home to maximise space and ensure privacy, while optimising the views in every direction. The 18-hole championship golf course skirts the estate, benefiting those that enjoy golf or those that just enjoy the golf estate lifestyle.
The housing estate is divided into two phases, purely due to style and position.
The first phase, which was completed in 2008 is fully sold out, is positioned on the left of the 1st fairway and above the clubhouse and Lodge. This phase consists of a total of 80 residential units. The design concept is village-style living, so homes are built close to one another, in order to maximize the common property available around the homes.
Golf cart paths have been built to ensure that homeowners can move easily throughout the estate and from their homes to the clubhouse and the estate restaurant, Chez Shiraz.
25 of the units are built in a U-shape around a communal entertainment area with an 18m swimming pool, for use by residents and hotel guests. These units are spacious, double storey and perfect for small families, holiday homes or are often used as part of a rental pool. Each unit comes with a single garage and one parking place, which are situated a short walk from the unit.
The services for phase 2 of the development, is currently underway and should be complete by October 2017. This phase is situated on the Northern and Western boundary of the Estate, and will consist of 45 single residential units.
