Set on the corner of Old Kendal Road and Weltevreden Avenue, a prime piece of land is about to be transformed into four valuable properties. The newly-built, separate title, free-standing homes, on a verdant erf, in the highly sought-after Deurdrift and The Vines area, are being marketed by Greeff Properties, Christie’s International Real Estate.
“The location of these homes is highly desirable, since the suburb is known for its family-oriented lifestyle and community atmosphere – residents meet regularly on the open green spaces to walk dogs, and a there is an active neighbourhood watch,” says Mike Greeff, adding that convenience is also a key factor with easy access to the M3, Constantia Village and two private schools – Herzlia is across the road and a Montessori preschool is next door. “These homes could not be more perfect for a family with young children,” says Greeff.
“The luxury, contemporary, vernacular style homes will each comprise three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a guest toilet and outside toilet with garden access,” says developer Tony Hansford of Big Sky Projects – known for townhouse developments in Diep River including Annvon Mews. He says kitchens will be open plan to living areas, but there will be a separate scullery and laundry. An undercover patio area will lead onto a level, lawned, landscaped garden.
All four homes are to be north facing, and three of them will be double storeyed with a pyjama lounge upstairs in addition to the bedrooms. Each double-storey home will also boast a wine cellar. “There will be good mountain views,” adds Hansford. The erfs measure 580 to 590m 2 , while the houses measure 268m(2).
Each contemporary vernacular-style house will boast quality finishes, including engineered stone tops and aluminium windows. Security will include electrified perimeter fencing and an alarm.
