Sunningdale twin villages raise the bar
High-end features and finishes in entry-level R750 000 homes
THE TWIN villages Millcove and Northfield are establishing a new generation of homes that provide high-end features at entry-level prices in Sunningdale, the Garden Cities suburb on the West Coast.
Twenty of the 31 houses have been sold at Millcove in a few weeks, and Northfield, the second half of the group housing project, where a further 31 homes will be built, will be launched early next year.
Features of both villages include 2.1m perimeter walls, electric fencing, electronic remote access control, heat pumps in all houses, as well as garages, electric hobs, undercounter ovens and extractors. Prices start from R750 000.
“It becomes more clear as the suburb develops along the lines of our urban planning philosophy, t hat providing homes for a diverse community creates a harmonious, cohesive order. Sunningdale i s now home to a wide variety of residents, from young single professionals and couples or newlyweds, to family households and retired people,” says Garden Cities chief executive John Matthews.
“Its population reflects the natural succession of our lives, from starting out, through the establishment years, to retirement or just a quieter pace. Sunningdale is, as we envisioned it, a comfortable, solid background against which residents can create their lives and achieve their goals.
“Life offers a large measure of uncertainty, and if at all possible we aim to provide an environment that allows our communities a confidence in the stability of their home base.
“The houses in the two villages provide a degree of luxury at prices usually associated with apartments. The heat pumps to provide hot water are a creative innovation at domestic level that offer enormous cost savings – using only one third of the electricity required for conventional geysers.
“And built-in features take the financial sting out of newhome ownership. These are things that when retro-fitted can be difficult for new buyers to manage financially,” says Matthews.
The houses will be available for occupation early next year.
