Baronetcy Estate, Plattekloof, Western Cape
| Simply Magnificent
Offering that rare combination of exclusivity and serenity, the Baronetcy residential estate takes its rightful place in the upper echelon of blue chip property acquisitions. Here, on the slopes of the Tygerberg Hills, just north of the upmarket suburb of Plattekloof, the gentle sweep of ocean views, the patchwork quilt of the winelands and the lush majesty of the adjoining Tygerberg Nature Reserve suggest a portrait of life lived in perfect balance.
Part of the beauty of the estate stems from the care developers are taking to encourage naturally occurring and threatened varieties of indigenous Fynbos to take root and thrive in and around the grounds. Parts of the Tygerberg Nature Reserve will eventually be merged into the estate to allow small animals to wonder freely into an incorporated green belt and dam area, where water flowing from the hills above collects to provide a natural haven for the birdlife and small deer which inhabit the area. Imagine wandering a private network of accessible yet secure footpaths, keeping a watchful eye out for the abundance of wildlife, before settling down to a romantic picnic at sunset all in your own back yard!
A Fine Heritage
It is said that life is only worth living if you live it well. With this in mind, it is hard to imagine living any better than on the serene and secure abounds of Baronetcy, which shares a heritage with 190ha of the De Grendel wine estate part of which is still operating as a producing wine farm.
Further down the slopes beyond the estate are conveniently situated shops, a gym, and restaurants, all within a gentle stroll of the estate grounds. Although the bustle of Tygervalley - and even Cape Town city centre - are only minutes away, the tranquillity of the Baronetcy estate remains undisturbed.
Access to the estate is carefully monitored and each residence is linked via intercom to a 24-hour manned security gate. In this day and age, where security is of paramount importance, every precaution has been taken to ensure that residents are fully protected at all times.
The generously proportioned plots (from 850 1200 square meters) begin at R1.2 million, while the completed houses have already begun to reflect their superb investment value, making Baronetcy ideal as both a top end portfolio addition and a place one can proudly settle to raise a family.
A stringent set of contemporary architectural guidelines ensures that the homes are designed to blend with the natural surroundings and enhance the breath-taking aesthetics of the estate. All plans are overseen by Arthur Quinton, one of South Africas foremost architects.
All in all, the Baronetcy estate represents the very uppermost tier of property investment, an oasis of country estate living with all of the most modern of conveniences at your fingertips. What more could you ask for?
