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.
Great care was taken to design each home to maximise space and ensure privacy, while optimising the views of the outdoors. 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 three phases, purely due to style and position.
The first phase, left of the 1st fairway and above the clubhouse and Lodge, consists of a total of 55 residential units. The design concept is village-style living, and homes are designed to face either West or East with views over the golf course or vineyards and the Simonsberg Mountain Range respectively. Golf cart paths have been built to ensure that homeowners can move easily throughout the estate and from their homes to the clubhouse.
The second phase, consisting of 25 units, is 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.
At present we have 80 homes on the estate, with plans currently being finalised for phase 3 of the residential development. This phase is situated on the Northern boundary of the Estate, and will consist of 45 single residential units.
A homeowners association has been formed to which all the homeowners automatically belong. Levies are charged to cover common expenses, such as 24hr Security, common lighting, sewerage, common garden maintenance and refuse removal.
Homeowners and residents will not be responsible for the maintenance of the golf course and two owner representatives can choose to become members of the club without paying the club entrance fees. However, the annual subscriptions are payable, depending on the membership category.
