Developed by Syfin Properties, the vision for Boschenmeer was to design a residential area on a golf course that is essentially 'part' of the golf course, and which enables residents to experience the tranquil openness, quiet and relaxation of the golf course on an everyday basis.
Virtually 90% of the residential properties are directly facing a part of the golf course, which offers breathtaking views across perfectly manicured lawns, and yet no fairway has houses on both sides. Homes are positioned to offer privacy and to best utilise the magnificent views of the Simonsberg and Franschhoek mountains.
The estate has many water features including a large lake with two islands and a bird sanctuary which is home to an abundance of bird life. The estate is the proud custodian of many old and well established trees, and a thousand indigenous trees and shrubs were furthermore planted at Boschenmeer, many bearing berries and seeds to attract even more bird species to the area.
The true value of a real estate investment lies in its exclusivity. Boschenmeer rests on the banks of the Berg River, among artfully conceived water features and mature pines with the Paarl Franschhoek mountain range rising up behind in awe inspiring permanence.
Here indeed is an investment that simply by virtue of its rarity is set to show enormous appreciation in value.
Of the 140ha site, only 30ha will be used for low density building, protecting the value of your investment in perpetuity. The estate comprises 520 housing units, separated into nodes suited to different lifestyle requirements. These include the Estate Lodges - a chance to own a luxury getaway to work and play.
The Estate Lodges are located adjacent to the scenic 19th fairway with views of the Drakenstein and Franschhoek mountains. The units are luxuriously furnished and fully equipped to a five star hotel standard, with satellite television in all bedrooms, and a video machine. All bedrooms are en-suite and each lodge has a living room, dining room and fully contained kitchen, as well as a patio or terrace, some with plunge pools or Jacuzzis.
The Estate Lodges are equipped with fireplaces and a Weber braai, and are stocked with firewood and firelighters.
The Estate Lodge self-catering option provides an unbeatable value-for-money offer to golfers and their partners who are looking for a short break to experience life on a golf estate. It also offers the perfect venue for corporate entertaining and executive meetings, combining work and play.
Tee up to play on this David Frost signature golf course - the first 27-hole layout in the Western Cape.
Boschenmeer blends the experience of natural beauty with playability in a way that is set to achieve world renown. Designer David Frost has created a golf course of true championship standard. At the same time he has achieved a first class golfing experience that will both challenge the low handicap and scratch golfer, yet not be too daunting for the less experienced 'weekender'. The 27-hole layout lends itself to championship play, with more simultaneous rounds possible. Which means less time taken to reach the final rounds.
The course offers world-class beauty and playability - to the extent that readers of Golf Today magazine voted the fourth hole of the Boschenmeer Nine as the best in South Africa in 2002.
Boschenmeer offers a high-tech golf academy and driving range, as well as a state-of-the-art club house. Other estate facilities include a swimming pool, floodlit tennis courts, and playroom for children as well as conference facilities.
The prestigious Estate Lodge product is perfectly suited to the corporate market. It is located on the immaculate third 9-holes, with breathtaking views of the estate's largest lake and bird sanctuary, and the surrounding mountains.
The exclusive Paarl/Boschenmeer Golf Course, a 15 x 6 m swimming pool and 2 floodlit tennis courts offer residents a perfect combination of pleasure and relaxation.
Wine lovers at Boschenmeer will find no less than 12 wine farms all within 20 kilometers of the estate, while the outdoor pursuits the area offers are almost limitless. For hikers, climbers and mountain bikers, the surrounding mountains are almost too good to be real. The Berg River bordering the estate is home to the fighting brown and rainbow trout, while those who want to explore further a field will find 4x4 trails that promise a spectacular wilderness experience.
