A chance to en­joy the best of both worlds

Business Day - Home Front - - HOMEFRONT -

ANEW de­vel­op­ment is tak­ing shape in the Cape town of Stel­len­bosch, which is about 28km from Cape Town In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Stel­len­bosch, which was founded is 1679, is at the head of the Eer­ste River Val­ley and home to a ma­jor wine re­gion. The town still pays homage to its cul­ture and her­itage, ev­i­dent in the care taken for aes­thetic val­ues. The in­flu­ence of many ar­chi­tec­tural styles over the past three cen­turies is seen in the many re­stored build­ings.

The new de­vel­op­ment, Andringa Walk, will con­sist of 119 apart­ments, in­clud­ing bach­e­lor, one-, two- and three-bed­room units, and a few du­plexes.

It will have a di­rect link to the Eikestad Mall, al­low­ing res­i­dents to utilise its ar­ray of shops, restau­rants and en­ter­tain­ment fa­cil­i­ties. Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties has the exclusive man­date to mar­ket the apart­ments, which are priced from R1,4m to R3,35m, in­clu­sive of VAT.

Louise Varga, Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties’ project man­ager for the de­vel­op­ment, says con­struc­tion of the apart­ments is al­ready well un­der way. The site will in­clude two floors of re­tail space, in­clud­ing a Wool­worths, Food Lovers’ Mar­ket and Vir­gin Ac­tive Gym. These will be topped by a large podium level con­tain­ing Andringa Walk’s ground floor and a large com­mu­nal open gar­den.

The 30 apart­ments on this level will all have their own pri­vate gar­dens in ad­di­tion to the ex­ten­sive com­mu­nal space. A fur­ther two lev­els of apart­ments above these will have views of the sur­round­ing moun­tains and vine­yards. The units range in size from 33m² to 123m², with high-qual­ity fin­ishes in­clud­ing mar­ble coun­ter­tops and bath­room van­i­ties. The build­ing will have round-the-clock se­cu­rity, with a 24-hour concierge and its own pri­vate el­e­va­tors.

Varga says while the build­ing is con­tem­po­rary in style it has been de­signed to blend har­mo­niously with its her­itage sur­round­ings.

“This is the his­toric heart of the town, with nu­mer­ous national mon­u­ments, gra­cious home­steads and mas­sive oak trees lin­ing the streets. There is a won­der­ful street café at­mos­phere in the sur­round­ing area, and res­i­dents will be able to tap into this re­laxed environment as well as en­joy the con­ve­nience of liv­ing con­nected to their own shop­ping mall.

“The univer­sity cam­pus is just a few min­utes’ walk away, mak­ing this a very at­trac­tive lo­ca­tion for stu­dents, with sig­nif­i­cant po­ten­tial for rental in­come as a re­sult. It is a sim­ply un­par­al­leled lo­ca­tion that should at­tract sus­tained de­mand,” she says.

An­nien Borg, Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties’ MD for the Boland and Over­berg re­gion, says the de­vel­op­ers, Aba­cus As­set Man­age­ment, are renowned for their com­mit­ment to green build­ing stan­dards, in­clud­ing en­ergy re­duc­tion, re­cy­cling of grey and rain water, and the use of nat­u­ral light.

“This ap­proach is also be­ing ap­plied at Andringa Walk to cre­ate the ideal pri­vate re­treat in the heart of town,” she says.

Park­ing spa­ces can be pur­chased at ex­tra cost in the se­cure base­ment area, where res­i­dents will also be able to rent stor­age space if they need to store big items such as moun­tain-bikes and other sport­ing equip­ment.

Oc­cu­pa­tion is an­tic­i­pated from Oc­to­ber next year. Price From R1,4m to R3,35m in­clu­sive of VAT Con­tact: Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties Vanessa John­son 082 588 7007 Louise Varga 082 552 4118 Of­fice 021 887 1017
