Es­tate homes are a great in­vest­ment

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

CAP­I­TAL growth in se­cure es­tates has been far higher than for or­di­nary homes with less em­pha­sis on se­cu­rity, says Mark Up­ton of Up­ton Prop­er­ties, sole agent for The High­wick, a new Clare­mont de­vel­op­ment.

“Re­cent re­search shows that se­cure es­tates are good in­vest­ments.”

The High­wick will con­sist of six mod­ern north-fac­ing homes priced from R5.55 mil­lion, with pri­vate ac­cess to the Dou­glas Mur­ray play­ing field, which it­self has di­rect ac­cess to Her­schel Girls’ School.

“The High­wick is one of only a hand­ful of de­vel­op­ments in the south­ern sub­urbs that has a 24-hour manned guard house and CCTV,” says Up­ton.

Fea­tures in­clude bal­conies and un­der-cover ter­races, am­ple park­ing, so­lar gey­sers, un­der-floor heat­ing, high ceil­ings, en-suite bath­rooms through­out, hard­wood floors, se­cure play ar­eas for chil­dren, large green spa­ces, panoramic views, prox­im­ity to shops and schools, gyms and the New­lands sports sta­di­ums.

The High­wick is the lat­est de­vel­op­ment by Ur­ban Space, founded by Bren­dan O’Brien and Paul Green­wood.

Other Clare­mont de­vel­op­ments by Ur­ban Space in­clude Cross Trees Ter­race, Mont Clair Ter­race and The Con- stance. Af­ter last week­end’s launch, one house has al­ready been sold and ne­go­ti­a­tions are in progress on two more homes, says Up­ton.

“Build­ing is due to start in Fe­bru­ary 2010 and own­ers can ex­pect to move in from 10 to 12 months af­ter that, de­pend­ing on win­ter rains,” says Up­ton.
