Exclusivity, peace of mind and access to first-class amenities are just some of the reasons why security estates are gaining popularity countrywide. Another appealing factor is that properties in secure estates are sound investments – regarding both capital appreciation and potential rental income.

The current trend is towards lifestyle estates that encompass working, living, playing and shopping within a secure environment and provide a sense of community as well as easy access to educational facilities. Leisure amenities encompass a host of features with the accent on broader lifestyle offerings, including gyms and other sports facilities as well as shopping complexes.

Durbanville, Welgemoed, Eversdal and surrounds in Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs have a number of new and well-established estates with top-end properties in park-like settings with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and first-class amenities. Prices for homes in these luxury estates generally range from R7 million to R20 million.

Priced at R12 million through Pam Golding Properties, this luxurious four-bedroom home set on a spacious 3000sqm erf in sought-after Vygeboom security estate includes a work-from-home office, wine cellar, swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and domestic accommodation, among numerous other features. There is a triple garage with direct access to the home, while energy-efficiency features include 30 solar panels, an 8kw inverter system, a 12kw battery supplying six hours of backup electricity and a 400L heat pump.

“This burgeoning suburb is ideally located along the N1 highway, giving homeowners easy access to Cape Town’s city centre, Cape Town International Airport, Grand West Casino and several wine routes, including the Durbanville Wine Valley,” says Mariël Burger, area manager for Pam Golding Properties, which has a range of homes for sale in several Durbanville luxury estates.

“It is also within easy reach of appealing Boland towns like Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek, with all their attractions. Many residents here find the area conveniently close to their places of work, with several big corporate head offices in the area.

“Amenities in Durbanville and Welgemoed surrounds are constantly increasing and being improved, with a number of new shopping centres, top schools and other facilities added over the past few years. Its central location and first-class facilities really make Durbanville the ideal work and lifestyle choice.”
