Last 57 group housing units have become available in Burgundy

Young Cape Town families wanting to settle in the up-and-coming, community-focused Northern Suburbs neighbourhood of Burgundy Estate in Brackenfell now have their last chance to buy a new home, with the development of the last 57 group housing units in the area.

Burgundy Estate Brackenfell has seen phenomenal growth in the past two years, with 3 prestigious new schools having opened their doors there on the same day last month, in response to a sharp spike in demand. Trinity Projects, which has been at the forefront of the wave of development in the area, will this month start construction on what will be the last available entry-level family homes.

The 57 duplex units in The Westmont will be priced between R1.3 million and R1.6 million, representing a rare opportunity to take a first step onto the property ladder without forfeiting quality of location or construction.

“Following the past two years’ growth in Burgundy Estate Brackenfell, an almost forgotten neighbourhood has blossomed into a dynamic new region in the Northern suburbs,” says Leslie Viljoen, Director at Trinity Projects.

“The creation of these new neighbourhoods has provided hundreds of prospective home owners and buy-to-let investors with safe and attractive new options,” he says.

Burgundy Estate Brackenfell was conceptualised and built almost from the ground up to become an integrated community with all amenities within walking distance.

So attractive and rare is the offering, that 30% of The Westmont units were sold even before launch, and during the notoriously slow festive season period.

Trinity has partnered with Brick & Board to ensure no compromise on the Burgundy Estate Brackenfell development and boasts a solid track record for the quality of the R500 million worth of property developed to date.

“As with all our projects, it is important that the quality of construction will deliver long into the future, and that buyers will receive a superior return on investment,” says Viljoen.

All homes will be fitted with designer kitchens with granite tops, porcelain tiles and Hans Grohe taps.

Viljoen ascribes the success of the Burgundy Estate Brackenfell project to the holistic synergy created by building beautiful, safe, green neighbourhoods, where children can safely play outside their homes and walk to school within minutes.

“This really was a case of ‘If we build it they will come’,” he says. “We expected the homes would be popular, but we could not have foreseen how the positive presence of new community members would make such a big impact on further boosting the attractiveness and value of the area,” he says.
