De­signer flats in the heart of es­tate

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

THERE is an ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ment at Bur­gundy Life­style Es­tate.

Wester n Cape-based prop­erty de­vel­oper MSP Group will de­velop a sec­ond com­plex at the es­tate in Plat­tek­loof, which bor­ders the vine­yards of Dur­banville Hills and De Gren­del.

Bur­gundy Es­tate en­ables de­vel­op­ers to ac­quire de­vel­op­ment land in an es­tab­lished, se­cure life­style es­tate.

Hot on the heels of Le Rouge – MSP’s first de­vel­op­ment on the es­tate, where more than 90 per­cent of the units have been sold – comes Mode de Vie (Way of Life) res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment, sched­uled to be com­pleted next year.

The Mode de Vie de­vel­op­ment will con­sist of 100 de­signer apart­ments at the heart of Bur­gundy Es­tate.

MSP Group manag­ing di­rec­tor John Coet­zee says Mode de Vie’s apart­ments will have two bed­rooms and fam­ily bath­rooms, and prices will start at R629 900. The av­er­age size is 61m with a fur­ther 5m2 pa­tio or bal­cony with a built-in braai. The fit­ted kitchens will have stain­less steel ovens, hobs and ex­trac­tor fans, and pro­vi­sion has been made for wash­ing ma­chines or dish­wash­ers. The car­peted dou­ble bed­rooms have built-in cup­boards and all in­te­ri­ors were de­signed by Emma H In­te­rior Con­sul­tants. Ground-floor units will have pri­vate gar­den ar­eas and a few will have larger spa­ces. A lim­ited num­ber of t op-f l oor apar t ments o f f e r e x t r a - vo l u me s p a c e s wi t h views.

Each unit has one park­ing bay, and there are 10 garages for sale.

“Buy­ers can choose to up­grade their apart­ment in­te­ri­ors to Mode r n e, Cl a s s i q u e o r Amuse­ment de­signs. Fin­ishes in­clude Rusten­burg gran­ite kitchen coun­ter­tops, maple, burnt oak or a com­bi­na­tion of burnt oak and white kitchen and bed­room cup­boards.

“Bur­gundy Es­tate is at the foot of the Tyger­berg Hills just off the N7, with easy ac­cess for com­muters to all ar­eas in the Cape metropole. The es­tate of­fers ex­ten­sive sport­ing ameni­ties and nu­mer­ous green zones, al­low­ing for a life­style that is so­cial, ac­tive and out­doors-based.

“The club­house has a pub and a golf shop and there are bi­cy­cle paths and jog­ging trails, a soc­cer and a rugby field. There is also a nine-hole Mashie golf course, a moun­tain bike trail and three es­tate club­houses ca­ter­ing for in­door pur­suits. Other ameni­ties in­clude a 6 000m Check­ers shop­ping cen­tre that will be com­pleted soon.

“Res­i­dents can also en­joy Mode de Vie’s exclusive recre­ational area, with its lawn and a play area with space where par­ents can watch the kids play or just re­lax.”

Coet­zee says Mode de Vie will have high lev­els of se­cu­rity. The com­plex will have pal­isade fenc­ing with ac­cess con­trol, but will also ben­e­fit from Bur­gundy Es­tate’s ex­ten­sive se­cu­rity sys­tem, where en­trance cam­eras mon­i­tor all move­ment in and out of the es­tate and 24hour car pa­trols pro­vide ac­tive crime de­ter­rents.

Al­though the se­cu­rity seems ex­ten­sive, it is dis­creet and of­fers res­i­dents peace of mind, Coet­zee says.

Says Uvest gen­eral man­ager Jaco Maritz: “Mode de Vie is on av­er­age R1 434 a square me­tre cheaper than other sim­i­lar de­vel­op­ments in Bur­gundy Es­tate, which amounts to a sav­ing of close to R95 000 a unit.

“It is also an ideal buy-to-let in­vest­ment. To safe­guard in­vestors’ in­ter­ests, the de­vel­oper has ap­pointed inde pen­dent rental e x p e r t s t o d e t e r mi n e e x p e c t e d rental re­turns at Mode de Vie.

“There is a high de­mand for rented homes at Bur­gundy Es­tate be­cause of its con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion, su­pe­rior lev­els of se­cu­rity and ex­cel­lent life­style fea­tures.

“In­de­pen­dent rental ex­perts say in­vestors could achieve rentals of be­tween R4 500 and R4 800 a month, with ex­pected in­creases of be­tween five per­cent and 10 per­cent at com­ple­tion at the end of next year.”
