Re­tire­ment vil­lage a gem in North­ern Cape

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

DESERT Vine­yard, a new North­ern Cape re­tire­ment vil­lage in the town of Keimoes, 40km from Uping­ton, is be­ing mar­keted by Se­eff Prop­er­ties.

The Desert Vine­yard Re­tire­ment Vil­lage of­fers 84 full-ti­tle plots plus 16 sec­tional ti­tle bach­e­lor units. The cot­tage-style one-, two-and three­bed­room houses have wide roof over­hangs and ve­ran­das for out­door en­ter­tain­ing.

A me n i t i e s a t t h e c l u b h o u s e in­clude a bowl­ing green and ten­nis court. The med­i­cal fa­cil­ity en­sures sup­port­ive health care, and the com­mu­nity cen­tre caters for res­i­dents’ daily needs, says Se­eff Uping­ton’s manag­ing di­rec­tor Les­ley Lieben­berg.

Se­cu­rity fea­tures at the 5.2ha es­tate in­clude bound­ary walls and a guarded en­trance. A tarred road links the vil­lage to sur­round­ing towns with all ameni­ties.

Prices in­clude trans­fer costs and VAT and in phase one range from R499 000 for a 84.77m² one-bed­room house to R649 000 for a 95.87m² twobed­room house, and R749 000 for a 104.15m² three-bed­room house.

P h a s e t wo ’ s p r i c e s s t a r t a t R299 000 for a 34.78m² sec­tional ti­tle bach­e­lor unit.

The de­vel­op­ment’s third phase’s prices range from R649 000 for a twobed­room house and R749 000 for a three-bed­room house.

Al­though there are no age re­stric­tions for buy­ers, res­i­dents must be 50 years plus.

“Many tourists travel through Keimoes en route to the spec­tac­u­lar Au­gra­bies Falls Na­tional Park, to see the yearly flower splen­dour of Na­maqua­land, the arid beauty of the Richtersveld Na­tional Park and West Coast. Keimoes forms part of the Kai!Garib Mu­nic­i­pal­ity with a pop­u­la­tion of 55 501, which also in­cludes the towns of Kakamas and Ken­hardt,” Lieben­berg says.

The clos­est town is Uping­ton, on the banks of the Or­ange River.

Since its es­tab­lish­ment in 1870, the town has ex­panded rapidly and is now the com­mer­cial, agri­cul­tural and ed­u­ca­tional cen­tre of the Gor­do­nia district.

T he town has a newly built pro­vin­cial hospi­tal, and a pri­vate hospi­tal with ex­ten­sive med­i­cal and health care ser­vices.

Uping­ton is linked to all ma­jor cities in South Africa by air, rail and road – 836km from Jo­han­nes­burg, 985km from Pre­to­ria, 834km from Cape Town and 628km from Bloem­fontein.
