BUILD­ING green is prov­ing to be a key ben­e­fit for home buy­ers at the new 21ha res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment, “Le Jardin” at Avianto Es­tate in Gaut­eng’s West Rand — lo­cated just out­side the tran­quil coun­try vil­lage of Mul­der­s­drift, about half an hour from ei­ther Sand­ton or Pre­to­ria. It’s also just 20km from Lanse­ria Air­port.

Mar­keted by Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties and launched in Fe­bru­ary, al­most 50% of the 46 stands in phase one have al­ready been sold in the first two months, at prices rang­ing from R780 000 for 800m² to 1 000m² plots up to R1,3m for 1 600m² river-front stands.

By blend­ing the Euro­pean-in­flu­enced ar­chi­tec­ture of Avianto with re­spon­si­ble en­vi­ron­men­tal de­sign and best green build­ing prin­ci­ples within a Highveld coun­try am­bi­ence, Avianto is cre­at­ing an ex­cit­ing and unique prop­erty in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity. The plan­ning of the in­te­grated es­tate re­volves around cre­at­ing a per­fectly en­joy­able and se­cure fam­ily life­style within a beau­ti­ful and sen­si­tive en­vi­ron­ment.

With an ever-in­creas­ing global em­pha­sis on the need for cli­mat­e­change mit­i­ga­tion, South African built-en­vi­ron­ment pro­fes­sion­als are beginning to take the am­bi­tion to lessen the car­bon foot­print as­so­ci­ated with res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial build­ings se­ri­ously, es­pe­cially by us­ing de­sign and tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion to de­crease en­ergy con­sump­tion, grey wa­ter us­age and lim­it­ing waste. A “sus­tain­able” phi­los­o­phy is the fu­ture and Avianto Es­tate would like make a real con­tri­bu­tion to en­cour­ag­ing best build­ing prac­tices in build­ing en­ergy-ef­fi­cient homes.

The es­tate con­sists of 90 free­hold in­di­vid­ual res­i­den­tial stands and 24 lux­ury clus­ter units within its own highly se­cured bound­ary only ac­ces­si­ble by res­i­dents and their guests. On of­fer will be the peace­ful­ness of in­dige­nous forests and park­lands with pic­nic ar­eas next to the Croc­o­dile River, walk­ing, jog­ging and moun­tain bik­ing trails and di­rect ac­cess to the Avianto Vil­lage Ho­tel and its pub­lic ameni­ties: swim­ming pools, Qolf course, ten­nis courts, club­house, cof­fee shop and restau­rant.

Mul­der­s­drift is the last ru­ral node set for de­vel­op­ment within the pop­u­lar and fast grow­ing Mo­gale City Mu­nic­i­pal District in Gaut­eng where just up the road, the largest shop­ping cen­tre in the south­ern hemi­sphere is on the cards. With easy ac­cess to Four­ways, the North and West Rand, Pre­to­ria and Lanse­ria air­port via the N14, the Pine Haven node nearer to the main busi­ness cen­tres has al­ready proven the de­sir­abil­ity and in­vest­ment value of the area.

Com­ments Louis van der Walt, project sales man­ager of Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties In­ter­na­tional Projects Divi­sion: “This de­vel­op­ment is set­ting a new stan­dard for prac­ti­cal bio-cli­matic or green build­ing, and es­tate liv­ing, with ar­chi­tec­tural guide­lines at Le Jardin which also en­force th­ese eas­ily achiev­able prin­ci­ples.

“Most of our buy­ers to date and in­quiries be­ing re­ceived are among those work­ing in the West Rand as well as nearby ar­eas of Sand­ton, Rand­burg and North­cliff.” Ac­ces­si­ble from the N14/R28 to Krugers­dorp, Avianto is con­ve­niently sit­u­ated for most ar­eas in the North and West Rand as well as Pre­to­ria, in ad­di­tion to those in the more im­me­di­ate vicin­ity such as Mul­der­s­drift, Krugers­dorp, Lit­tle Falls, Ruim­sig, Wel­tevre­den Park and Pine Haven.

“The in­vest­ment value of this new res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment has sound po­ten­tial for growth as born out by the in­creas­ing de­mand for homes in sub­urbs such as Pine Haven. Fur­ther en­hanc­ing its ap­peal are the abun­dance of shop­ping fa­cil­i­ties and other ameni­ties, with Clear­wa­ter Mall just 15-20 min­utes away,” says van der Walt.

Phase two at Le Jardin, which will in­clude 44 stands and 24 lux­ury and clus­ter units. will only be re­leased to the mar­ket at the end of the year. Con­tact: Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties Louis van der Walt 082 964 1005

The de­sign style of homes at Le Jardin at Avianto Es­tate will be a blend of Euro­pean-in­flu­enced ar­chi­tec­ture with re­spon­si­ble en­vi­ron­men­tal de­sign and best green build­ing prin­ci­ples.
