Apartment project takes off in Blouberg village
WESTERN CAPE property developer Gary Vos, representing the Blouberg Coastal Property Trust, recently launched a R12-million, eight-apartment development in Blaauwberg on the West Coast.
Spring Tide is being marketed by Rawson Properties’ Blaauwberg franchise, owned by principal Mike Abrahamse.
Abrahamse says this follows Rawson’s previous associations at the Sandy Bay and The Breakers developments, all of which were competitively priced and sold fast.
“Spring Tide is right in the heart of Blouberg, half a block from the beach and within easy walking distance of the area’s well-known restaurants, bistros and coffee shops. It will have a contemporary style with modern mono-pitch roofs and Cape Cod-type timbered facade claddings,” said Abrahamse.
“Units will vary in size from 70m² to 100m² and, as on Vos’s previous developments, finishes in the open plan layouts will include sandstone tiles, granite countertops in the kitchens, down-lighters, black aluminium-framed windows and balcony doors and stainless steel balustrades.
“In general, bathrooms and kitchens will be particularly luxurious and typical of the quality of this developer’s projects.”
The units are mostly northfacing. The development will have a landscaped communal courtyard with braai facilities.
Garages will be underneath the duplex units, making this a threestorey project. Six of the apartments will have two bedrooms and two bathrooms and two have three bedrooms with two bathrooms.
Two of the ground floor units have gardens.
Abrahamse says take-up has been fast, and there only three two- bedroom units (70m²) and one threebedroom unit (100m²) still available. These are priced from R998 000 (excluding the garage) to R1 565 000 for a three-bedroom unit with a double garage.
Abrahamse says these prices reflect the current state of the market – but, he predicted, within four to five years the same units will be selling at double what the developers are now asking.
Completion of Spring Tide is scheduled for December.
