Secure Stellenbosch smallholding estate
OF THE NINE properties on the 48ha Slaley Estate near Stellenbosch, three properties with showhouses and three plots without buildings are still available for sale.
Developer Johann Buitendag says the others have found ready takers, including American and Dutch buyers. The estate is being marketed by Greeff Properties.
The properties still for sale are priced from R6.4 million for a vacant plot. Those with showhouses range in price from R9.2 to R13.5m. These prices include 780m², 820m² or 1 000m² houses on a 4 000m² designated area. If buyers opt to build for themselves (buying a plot at R6.4m) they are still required to conform to the prescribed design guides, which specify features like earth-coloured walls and interiors, charcoal Chromadeck roofs, fireplaces, wraparound stoeps and a modern farmhouse style.
The Slaley Estate is 10 minutes’ drive from Stellenbosch, 15 minutes from Paarl and 25 minutes from Cape Town, says Mike Greeff, chief executive of Greeff Properties.
“Many homes have views of Table Mountain, the Simonsberg and/or overlook the two farm dams. Slaley is flanked by or close to the well-known wine farms Muratie, Delheim and Kanonkop.
About 60 percent of the Slaley land is planted with vines or olives and owners enjoy annual free q u o t a s o f 2 4 c a s e s o f wi n e a n d access to the farm’s olive oil.”
Struan Buchanan, Slaley’s marketing consultant, says that indep e nde nt p r o p e r t y va l ue r Jo han Kloppers estimated the value of certain Slaley properties to be on aver- age R1.5m to R2m higher than the prices asked.
