Pam Golding Properties (PGP) reports that it remains a sought-after address for established and up-and-coming families and young couples.
The secure estate consists of 35 freehold stands, all generously sized between 4000 square metres and 1.1ha. Every property is privately located within its own portion of vineyard or olive grove and the homes enjoy views of the Simonsberg and Du Toitskloof mountains.
Vacant stands are priced between R1.65 million and R2.95 million, while homes can cost R7 million to over R20 million, depending on size, location and quality of finishes.
All the homes are developed within the estate’s design guidelines, which uphold an overarching Provencal-style theme, with use of earth tones and natural finishes such as wood, terracotta and stone.
PGP agent Lynette Schoeman says the beautiful mountain backdrop, tight security and spacious properties create an ideal environment in which to raise a family. Therefore, it is not surprising that the majority of residents are aged between 35 and 50.
“The atmosphere on the estate is one of relaxed tranquillity, where children can ride their bicycles and enjoy the outdoors with far greater freedom than they might have in an urban area,” she says.
Schoeman notes that security is strict but unobtrusive and includes electric perimeter fencing, guard patrols and one entrance point which is guarded round the clock.
PGP area manager, Surina du Toit adds that the location is extremely convenient, offering easy access to Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, as well as excellent schools. “The private Bridge House school is close by, while there are a number of other quality alternatives for both primary and high school children in the neighbouring towns.”
It is within easy access to the N1 highway for those commuting to the airport and Cape Town is half an hour’s drive away.
Du Toit mentions that there can be no better address for wine-lovers, as immediate neighbours include world-famous wine farms such as Backsberg, Vrede en Lust and Rupert & Rothschild.
Among the properties currently on the market in Winelands Estate is a three-bedroom home priced at R7.295 million. It offers 450 square metres of living space and has an open-plan kitchen, spacious living areas and a private patio with a splash pool. It also has a separate cottage with an additional en suite bedroom and kitchenette, perfect for use as a guest suite or staff quarters. The home offers a large study over a double garage, providing an ideal work-from-home environment. The property overlooks a dam, has mountain views and it is on the market exclusively through PGP.
