Rabie Property invests in Burgundy Estate, Cape Town

Named after Sir David Graaff’s champion filly, Zarina epitomizes all that Burgundy Estate stands for, offering green open spaces, award-winning architecture and a strong sense of community with communal facilities, landscaped greens and a stress-free environment.


Rabie Property Group, one of South Africa’s leading independent property developers, has entered a joint venture with Nedbank Corporate & Investment Banking to develop all the remaining residential and commercial land in Burgundy Estate Cape Town.

Just 19 kilometres north of the CBD, in the foothills of the Durbanville Hills, Burgundy Estate borders the vineyards of the historic De Grendel wine farm. This secure, 80-hectare walled estate offers residents the benefit of communal facilities, indigenous landscaping and first-class security. Architectural guidelines ensure an aesthetically pleasing environment, while pocket parks and green corridors create a healthy, stress-free atmosphere, perfect for young families to grow up in.

Burgundy Estate itself is surrounded by wine farms and mountain bike tracks. Cape Town’s MyCiTi rapid transit bus service will be deployed at Burgundy Estate in the near future, providing quick, affordable and secure public transport to Cape Town and the beaches of the West Coast.

Zarina takes its name from one of Sir David Graaff’s champion fillies, raised and trained on what was once part of the De Grendel farmland. This spacious and beautifully laid out project consists of 165 one and two bedroom sectional title apartments, and 16 three-bedroom, double-storey townhouses.

A communal swimming pool with braai facilities, a landscaped play area with jungle gym, access control and 24-hour security complete an outstanding array of features.

Zarina offers plenty of space for young families to grow up in, and strong tenant demand for buy-to-let investors. Designed by award-winning Munnik Visser Architects, Zarina is the ideal spot for new homeowners to get a foothold in Cape Town’s property market, and for investors looking for solid capital growth and stable rental income.
Zarina is ideally situated in Burgundy Estate, looking out over a green open area towards Cape Town on one side, and to views of the rolling Durbanville hills on the other.

The development is also within a few minutes walk of Burgundy Square Shopping Centre, anchored by Checkers, and of the Burgundy Estate Clubhouse, with its restaurant and pub. The estate’s golf course, canoeing lake and tennis court are also just a stroll away.
