The high life
De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate, a collection of elite homes and apartments outside Cape Town, offers modern-day living for over-50s
Demand for De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate has steadily been increasing. Its views of Table Mountain, security and range of facilities and property options are some of the drawcards for buyers. In the first 30 days after its launch, sales reached R56 million, increasing to R114 million after 120 days. “This indicates that our objective to be one of the most prestigious and desirable estates for over-50s in the Western Cape is hitting the mark,” says Johan Loubscher, director of Arun Lifestyle, whose project this is. Arun Lifestyle is backed by Arun Holdings and Old Mutual. “In addition, the estate’s location on the cusp of the northern suburbs means that it is attracting buyers from greater Cape Town and the northern suburbs.”
THE INVESTMENT OPTIONS
Three different types of properties are available: 106 assisted living suites, 98 independent living apartments and 57 high-end homes, with designer finishes and appliances such as Smeg. Construction is already well underway.
Due for completion in November/December this year, Tijgerzicht includes studios and one- and two-bedroom assisted living suites which, depending on the floor level, offer beautiful views of the gardens, the slopes of Tygerberg Nature Reserve, Table Mountain and the coastline from Fish Hoek to Bloubergstrand. These suites are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call system. Residents have the opportunity to enjoy the privacy of their own apartments or interact with fellow residents in the five-star lounge and communal dining area. Tijgerzicht suites feature high-quality finishes and are priced from R1 203 000 including transfer duty. The facility also includes a 12-bed frail-care section.
The first blocks of two-bedroom luxury apartments for independent living, Bloemendal (25% sold) and Lebenstijn (50% sold), are both available for viewing and ready for occupation in October. These apartments are priced from R2 250 000 including transfer duty and are popular with those wanting a lock-up-and-go lifestyle or who wish to downscale. There are a range of optional services available. Each apartment is more than 70m2 in extent, excluding a 6.13m2 balcony or patio, and includes exclusive parking bays.
The first phase of 15 modern and spacious homes are available to purchase off-plan from R3 627 000 including transfer duty. These homes feature impeccable finishes and two or three bedrooms, and range from 129m2 to 169m2. Buyers can choose from a selection of designer finishes to personalise their homes, which are designed in the Cape vernacular, and are inspired by the natural beauty of the surroundings and positioned for maximum exposure to sunlight and views.
Healthcare options are tailor-made to individual circumstances and needs. “De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate’s on-site healthcare facility is another major drawcard. This includes a clinic, 24-hour nursing and other healthcare services offered by Medwell SA,” says Johan. The estate clubhouse will offer function facilities and activities such as bridge, music, hiking clubs and cinema and theatre nights, both on and off the premises. There is also a restaurant, bar, library, hair and beauty salon, coffee shop, fibre-optic internet connection and a golf cart shuttle service. “We cover all the requirements of modern living for the over-50s in a remarkable setting with breath-taking views and superior amenities,” says Johan. “This has no doubt been reflected in the remarkable sales to date.”
