Business and pleasure: an exterior view of the award-winning estate’s launched sleek offices.
Paarl-Franschhoek Valley’s Val de Vie Estate, one of the country’s frontrunners in property development, has officially announced the launch of a brand new offering on its turf – the elegant Polo Village Offices. These offices, conceptualised with the importance of a balanced lifestyle in mind, can be purchased or rented and will measure 3 500 m² in total. Each of the eight single units can be divided into rooms measuring 20 m² to 445 m² according to individual requirements.
Designed by Boogertman & Partners and true to Val de Vie’s elegant style, the offices will feature luxurious interior fixtures and finishes, state-of-the-art technology, including the option of high-speed fibre optic connectivity, and inspiring touches such as expansive windows that provide panoramic views of L’Huguenot Wine Farm, Simonsberg and Paarl Rock.
The Cape remains high on the list of the world’s top tourist and residential locations, with unique characteristics and abundant attractions ranging from winelands to beaches and the vibrant Mother City. While many establish roots in the Cape and travel to Johannesburg and other cities for business, the demand for offices close to one’s home has grown to the extent that Val de Vie saw the gap to add this to their vast range of property offerings.
Comments Ryk Neethling, Marketing Director at Val de Vie Estate: “The Polo Village Offices are the perfect solution for those who want to keep a pulse on their business commitments but who also want to win back time lost on commuting, in order to make the most of the Cape’s enviable lifestyle. At Val de Vie, we prioritise family values, fitness, health and the ability to enjoy life to the fullest, and this offering allows business people the opportunity to do so.”
According to Val de Vie’s unique statistics, approximately 40% of its buyers and investors are from Gauteng, and there is increasing interest in the estate from residents of KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape, Bloemfontein and Rustenburg.
Neethling continues: “We can’t say we’re surprised by the number of people looking to relocate to Val de Vie. Our offerings are unrivaled and we continuously strive to maintain and improve what we provide to our residents and visitors.”
Val de Vie has received numerous international awards and acclaim for its security and property developments. Adding to this, it has been host to Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, as well as many other esteemed guests at its celebrated polo events. Polo matches are regularly held in warmer months and are an excellent form of entertainment, which can be enjoyed by business partners and clients. If golf is preferred, a round can be played at the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Pearl Valley, now part of Val de Vie. For other occasions, the estate’s Polo Club Restaurant is an elegant but comfortable meeting place.
