Buyers see value in sought-after Westbrook

The Westbrook story continues to unfold, now with increased buyer activity as purchasers snap up new homes in the second phase of PE’s beautiful, purpose-designed mega development situated near BayWest Mall on the city’s western edge.

“We’re experiencing tremendously encouraging activity at Westbrook as we launch the second phase,” says Steve van Schaik, Sales Manager for Westbrook, “with a total of 3 homes sold in the last week, we’re breaking new records in the area,” he states. “I believe that buyers are realizing value in the overall vision for Westbrook and understanding that the Amdec Group are here, as developers, to deliver on our promises!“

“With over 28 years of experience in creating high-quality local and international homes and ‘new urban’ developments, Amdec understands the needs that prospective homeowners face, particularly in the face of tough economic times,” he says. “At Westbrook we’ve taken great care to address all the pillars that make for a vibrant, attractive and super-safe environment. These include pricing, location, accessibility, a Curro School and workplaces – along with a host of other essential services. That’s why Westbrook homes are so sought-after!” he explains.

“Every detail of the Westbrook development has been designed to complement the lifestyle that today’s urban family anticipates,” he continues. “We’ve taken care – at every step of the planning and construction process – to offer a well-designed, well built, eco-innovative development built around wonderful parks and green open spaces. Westbrook delivers the ideal mix of designer homes and state-of-the art facilities. Add an excellent mix of retail and office space, plus a planned medical facility right on your doorstep and you can see the wonderful benefits of owning a home and a superb lifestyle, wrapped up in one.”

Phase 2 of Westbrook’s The Ridge development offers 36 new designer homes comprised of 5 separate unit types. With prices starting at R1.175 million for a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home complete with a double garage and landscaped garden, this represents an amazing opportunity for potential purchasers to secure standout value in terms of location and lifestyle.

Catering to a variety of needs and budgets, and with larger 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom units currently on offer for the first time, all Westbrook homes offer uncluttered comfort and are built with low maintenance and reduced running costs in mind. Standard features include solar geysers with temperature control, open plan kitchens with granite tops, energy efficient LED downlights and enclosed yards.

“The first phase of Westbrook’s The Ridge Estate is currently sold out,” says Christo Slabbert of Remax Independent, the marketers of the development. “Many buyers are drawn to the development because of its safety and security features, close proximity to the BayWest Mall and – of course – the newly established Curro School. We’re experiencing similar enthusiasm in Phase Two, as buyers witness the rapid progress of this attractive 21st century-style neighbourhood,” he comments.

“More and more buyers are looking to buy close to good schools, good roads and amenities – and Westbrook, as PE’s newest suburb, offers all this and a good deal more!” he says. “A new interchange over the N2 and other new road infrastructure has helped to alleviate traffic congestion in the area and allow access both to the newly developed Baywest Mall as well as into the CBD,” states Slabbert.

“With regards to Westbrook itself, eighty percent of the bulk infrastructure and services (roads, sewers, water, electricity etc.) has already been established. Amdec have also built a solid partnership with Absa Capital, who are a 25% shareholder in the development.”
