New walls in old styles at Heritage Hill

HERITAGE Hill, the residential village being established in Centurion, Gauteng, recorded total sales to the public and developers amounting to more than R107m in the first three days of its launch.

The total value of building in the earliest stage of the development is R152m.

Heritage Hill is based on urban planning and architectural design inspired by the late 1800s as opposed to foreign themes such as Mediterranean or Tuscan.

"The response definitely vindicates us. Our decision to look to the true Highveld look and feel for quality living in an integrated village has caught the imagination," says Heritage Hill marketing manager Jan Smith.

Bordered by Irene and the wealthy southern parts of Pretoria and Sandton and Fourways, the completion of Heritage Hill in six phases will introduce a modern village to an area that is experiencing major commercial growth.

PCN Projects has been appointed to establish the village on behalf of its development company Grand Bridge Trading.

The Heritage Hill architects, Stellenbosch-based Dennis Moss Partnership have embraced an approach to urban design that combines natural heritage, houses and institutional buildings such as the school, a place of worship and shops with an architectural ambience peculiar to the area, the highveld style of the late-19th century.

The Brakfontein Farm, on which the village is situated, has been in the Erasmus family for more than 150 years.
