High-end buyers love this estate in Cape Town’s northern suburbs

06 Mar 2019

Boasting what is arguably Cape Town’s best view of the Cape Peninsula, with contemporary grand designs featuring the latest technology, as well as a nature reserve on its doorstep, there’s no denying that Baronetcy Estate in Plattekloof, is the ‘Atlantic Seaboard’ of the Northern Suburbs.

This four bedroom, five bathroom house in Baronetcy Estate, Cape Town, offers open-plan living areas, a braai area, patio and heated pool. It is selling for R7.65 million - click here to view.

Residential listings go to market from upwards of R30 million to R40 million, as Baronetcy Estate continues to attract high-end buyers looking to invest in a secure lifestyle away from the bustle of the city. The luxury lifestyle estate is perfect for family living, says Pierre Nel, Pam Golding Properties area principal for Baronetcy.

The estate’s entry-level price is around R7.9 million, and the median selling price of homes has shown strong growth in recent years, increasing by 18% from R8.837 million in 2017 to R10.197 million in 2018, says Nel.

This five bedroom, five bathroom house in Baronetcy Estate, Cape Town, has formal living and dining areas flowing to an expansive undercover patio with rim-flow pool, bar and jacuzzi. It is on the market for R19.5 million - click here to view.

“Baronetcy offers exceptional value for money, given that the average plot size starts from upwards of 800sqm, and it is not unusual for some properties to be as large as 1 800sqm. For the same price as a compact apartment in other top-end residential areas, one can acquire an expansive property at Baronetcy, complete with smart-home features, exceptional views and excellent security,” he says.

“Furthermore, the estate offers a laidback lifestyle with a real sense of community. It is conveniently located just a short commute from Century City and the CBD, and is also within driving distance of the Winelands. Living at Baronetcy is akin to being on a permanent getaway.”

This five bedroom, five bathroom house in Baronetcy Estate, Cape Town, offers lots of natural light and open-plan living with magnificent views from all levels. It is selling for R29.8 million - click here to view.

Baronetcy attracts a diverse mix of local and overseas buyers, explains Nel. Those coming from Gauteng and upcountry enjoy the space and size of the homes, the prime location and panoramic view, as well as the freedom of having Tygerberg Nature Reserve on their doorstep.

Baronetcy is well placed near to the various excellent schools in the area, making this the ideal place for families to settle. The N1 makes it easy to travel to Stellenbosch University and the University of Cape Town as well.

Nel says Baronetcy has a stable property market, with owners often selling to upscale or downscale as their needs evolve, to a new home within the estate. The estate therefore has strong rental market, and homes are let for upwards of R60 000 a month.

This four bedroom, four bathroom house in Baronetcy Estate, Cape Town, has designer home features, entertainment areas, a study and pool. It is on the market for R12.995 million - click here to view.

Baronetcy can accommodate up to 300 homes. There is vacant land available, but the strong demand for a piece of this pristine estate has seen the median price of plots increase steadily in recent years, going up 32% from R3.29 million in 2017 to R4.3 million last year. Homeowners are investing in features that will add value to their homes in the long term, and many of the new builds include green design elements, such as solar panels that allow them to operate almost entirely off the grid, says Nel.

Architectural innovation is evident throughout the estate and many of the multi-storeyed homes have generous living areas, indoor swimming pools and all the mod cons one would expect to see in a luxury home anywhere in the world. Luxury, comfort and convenience set the tone for this plush estate. Hosting top medical facilities, such as Panorama Mediclinic, the area also offers several shopping centres and plenty of restaurants.

“There is a strong demand for luxury living in a secure estate, and buyers are starting to cast their eyes beyond the usual high-end suburbs. Cape Town is becoming an increasingly sought-after destination for high-net-worth buyers, from South Africa and overseas. The Prime Residential Index 100 for 2018 ranked Cape Town’s luxury property market second globally in terms of value and growth. Investors at this end of the market want luxury and security with access to the best the Mother City has to offer. Baronetcy Estate ticks all of the boxes, and more, with its superlative offering,” says Nel.
