Innovative new homes in Malmesbury’s Glen Lily Estate combine form and function

Form meets function in a beautiful new home recently completed in Malmesbury’s sought-after Glen Lily Estate. The property is unique in that it offers a comfortable living space that will greatly enhance the quality of life of those who live there, says Christy de Klerk, Pam Golding Properties agent for the area.


Developer Ashraf Fataar’s son is wheelchair-bound, making him particularly aware of the importance of mobility and accessibility in a home. He has therefore purposefully designed a home with wide doorways to make each room as accessible as possible. It is easy to manoeuvre throughout the house, and open-plan living spaces create a seamless flow between the inside and outside garden and the wetland beyond – teeming with birdlife. A pleasing sense of space is enhanced by the use of double-volume ceilings, luxury finishes and stacking doors.

Listed by Pam Golding Properties for R2.35 million, the home is one of two identical units located next to each other in the estate. It has been designed and built by Fataar’s company, Multilayer Construction, with a keen focus on function, mobility, luxury and comfort. The company has close to 20 years’ experience in the construction industry, and its commitment to excellence is reflected in the innovation and structural integrity which is evident throughout the build.

Unlike other developers, Fataar and his team worked on the entire project from start to finish, bringing together the various ‘layers’ of architectural design, physical construction and interior layout. A modular approach allows for flexibility in both the design and the build. The end result is that instead of placing a few ramps here and there, Fataar has created a space that can make mobility easier, affording greater independence and freedom of movement.

This makes it this uniquely designed ‘multilayer home’ ideal for a buyer wanting comfort and luxury within a tranquil setting. It would also suit a retiree seeking independent living in a home designed to allow for greater mobility should the need arise later for a wheelchair or assisted living.

Malmesbury offers idyllic country living, yet is still an easy commute from other major towns. The completion of the N7 highway upgrade means that Cape Town, Paarl, Wellington and Durbanville are just 30 minutes’ drive away. This Swartland town has plenty to offer, from its wine farms and historical architecture to outdoor activities that include mountain biking, walking and running trails in the Renosterveld Reserve. With remote working becoming more commonplace, there’s been renewed interest in towns such as Malmesbury, as buyers look to live outside of the city.

“Quality of life has become increasingly important and Glen Lily Estate promises this in abundance, and within a secure environment. The planning of six more similarly-designed Multilayer homes within the estate will undoubtedly elevate Malmesbury’s reputation as a small town with a massive heart,” says De Klerk.
