Ma­jor new road links Sun­ning­dale to in­land sub­urbs and the N7

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

SUN­NING­DALE, the Gar­den Cities western seaboard sub­urb that cel­e­brates its 16th an­niver­sary this year, has reached a sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone with the com­ple­tion of two new ma­jor ar­te­rial roads, one of which links it to the N7 high­way.

More than 3 500 homes, from cot­tages to 200m houses, have been built at Sun­ning­dale, which has be­come the bench­mark for plan­ning and con­struc­tion stan­dards since it be­gan in 1997. Be­cause of the com­pre­hen­sive in­fras­truc­tural de­vel­op­ment that in­cludes schools, a hos­pi­tal, a re­tail cen­tre and a world-class sports fa­cil­ity, the sub­urb has be­come a pri­mary choice for new home­own­ers on the coast.

The road net­work serv­ing Sun­ning­dale has, up to now, been con­fined to di­rect links with the West Coast road (R27), and as it reaches crit­i­cal mass, the planned con­nec­tion bet- ween Sun­ning­dale and the N7 be­tween the N1 and the Swart­land has been com­pleted on Sandown Road. This will re­lieve pres­sure on the West Coast Road and pro­vide faster com­mut­ing to Cape Town.

It en­ables mo­torists to take routes both south to Cape Town and also north to Malmes­bury via the N7.

The sec­ond ma­jor road de­vel­op­ment is the link­ing of Berk­shire Boule­vard, run­ning east/west in the sub­urb, with the West Coast Road.

A fur­ther im­prove­ment in ac­ces­si­bil­ity for pub­lic trans­port com­muters is the ex­ten­sion of the MyCiti bus ser­vice on the north/south spine, Sun­ning­dale Drive.

With the new road ac­cess, de­vel­op­ment at Sun­ning­dale con­tin­ues apace. The re­lease of 150 sin­gle res­i­den­tial unit sites for con­struc­tion north of Bel­mont Road fol­lows the near sell-out at Canal West, where only 30 three-bed­roomed group hous­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties re­main, priced from R1.1 mil­lion.

In the new phase, the Proven­cal-style houses will be larger, with a liv­ing area of around 150m and a dou­ble garage. Prices start from R1.5m. The of­fer­ing in­cludes a lim­ited num­ber of 100m2 cot­tage-style houses with two bed­rooms, two bath­rooms and dou­ble garages on smaller plots.
