Two rea­sons to be be­side the (wind-free) sea­side

Business Day - Home Front - - FRONT PAGE -

LO­CATED on the slopes of Lions Head, over­look­ing the rocky coast­line be­tween Sea Point and Clifton, lies the Cape Town sub­urb of Bantry Bay.

Sit­u­ated close to the Cape Town CBD, V&A Waterfront, the con­ven­tion cen­tre and the Ta­ble Moun­tain ca­ble­way, Bantry Bay is known to be the most wind-free area in Cape Town.

This area is one of the most sought-af­ter real es­tate lo­ca­tions in the city due to its trendy, up­mar­ket ap­peal. Sta­tis­tics sourced from prop­erty data provider, Light­stone, in­di­cate that 74% of Bantry Bay prop­erty is sec­tional ti­tle, with 36,47% of re­cent buy­ers aged be­tween 36 and 49 years. Dur­ing the past 12 months, Light­stone fig­ures show that 16 sec­tional-ti­tle prop­er­ties have been sold for an av­er­age price of R8,258m.

A new, lux­u­ri­ous res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment is sure to es­ca­late these fig­ures, as the sub­urb of Bantry Bay will shortly be home to 276 Ocean View Drive, a new de­vel­op­ment con­sist­ing of two lux­u­ri­ous villa units.

“Lo­cated on the ocean side of the road, the units will of­fer great sea and city views in one of the best lo­ca­tions in SA,” says Se­eff At­lantic Seaboard agent, Lance Co­hen. The con­tem­po­rary de­sign of the vil­las has been un­der­taken by M2K ar­chi­tects and each unit will of­fer 500m2 of floor space with ul­tra-lux­u­ri­ous fin­ishes.

The de­vel­op­ment is the brain­child of in­te­rior de­sign­ers, Mar­ius van der Merwe and Chris Steyn of M-in­te­ri­ors, who count among their ac­com­plish­ments the inte- ri­ors of the One & Only pent­houses. The cut­ting edge de­sign em­pha­sises un­der­stated lux­ury, com­fort, privacy and max­imised views, ac­cord­ing to the de­vel­op­ers. Large glass win­dows and slid­ing doors en­sure un­ob­structed views while top qual­ity, yet min­i­mal­ist fin­ishes will al­low own­ers the free­dom to dec­o­rate at will and add colour.

The de­vel­op­ment con­sists of a lower and an up­per unit, sit­u­ated slightly to­wards the back to en­hance privacy. Both units will have di­rect lift ac­cess from the street-level garage block that pro­vides two garages per unit. The stair­cases and el­e­va­tor block will fea­ture a shut­tered con­crete fin­ish while the large el­e­va­tor has a glass wall that of­fers views of the ocean be­yond as it as­cends.

The three spa­cious bed­rooms have en-suite bath­rooms and the liv­ing ar­eas flow onto a deck with sea views, a rim-flow swim­ming pool and land­scaped gar­den.

Fin­ishes in­clude plush car­pet­ing for the bed­rooms, white mar­ble floor tiles and acid wash deck floors. Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude un­der­floor heat­ing and air-con­di­tion­ing through­out, Gira switches and in­ter­coms, heated towel rails, mo­torised blinds and cur­tains and state-of-the-art se­cu­rity.

“This is one of the most ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ments on of­fer in the sub­urb that pro­vides for lux­u­ri­ous liv­ing,” says Co­hen. Price: Be­tween R18m and R22m plus VAT Con­tact: Se­eff Prop­er­ties Lance Co­hen 082 416 6103
