Growing up in a safe environment, playing in parks, walking to school – these are not just fond memories of a leisurely past.
For a select few, it’s now within reach – at the new Burgundy Estate, a secure, self-contained village with traffic-beating amenities offering our residents:
- round-the-corner shopping,
- round-the-clock security,
- safe exercise spaces,
- sports facilities and schools, and
- proposed on-site medical services.
Burgundy Estate is built on one of the last remaining and immensely valuable pockets of land bordering the Tygerberg, Blaauwberg and Parow urban edges. The long-anticipated rezoning of this historic land has brought an extraordinary investment opportunity for those seeking strong capital appreciation in a short time.
Burgundy Estate abuts the vineyards of the sought-after Durbanville wine area and the historic De Grendel wine farm, which add to the desirability of the estate.
The estate’s strict urban and landscaping design guidelines serves as control to create an aesthetically pleasing and high-value environment. Homes will be built in a contemporary style to ensure homogeneity, and will conform to the high standards of the Burgundy Master Homeowners Association.
Particular attention has been given to the landscaping of the area. Only indigenous plants are used, nurtured by a grey water reticulation system with enough capacity to sustain the entire development.
The lifestyle for you
Take full advantage of the outdoors, right on your doorstep. Burgundy Estate’s many open spaces encourage an outdoor lifestyle, create breathing space between homes and naturally soften the area.
Pocket parks and linear green corridors dotted throughout the development create safe playing areas, within view of your home, for the exclusive use of residents and their families. All open areas are maintained by the estate.
At Burgundy Estate, a healthier, stress-relieving lifestyle is within easy reach. Exercise in a safe environment through our “green street” system, incorporating a pedestrian walkway for joggers and adjacent cycle track meandering through the development.
The convenience for you
Burgundy Estate’s amenities are all within easy reach of all homes on the estate, and greatly enhance the sense of home and convenience, resulting in a more leisurely pace and more time spent at home.
Burgundy Estate will have its own private primary and high schools, a crèche run by the on-site church, a 12 000m2 shopping centre, restaurants, and a medical centre housing health care practitioners.
Sports lovers don’t have to leave Burgundy Estate to improve their skills or levels of fitness. Three club houses will accommodate a variety of organised sports, while a nine-hole putting and chipping course and a mountain bike track, allowing for quick, convenient access to practice sessions for the time-strapped.
Secure for sure
While most South African residential developments focus on gated, access-controlled areas, Advanced urban design offered a solution: two access roads into the estate prompted more effective pro-active measures.
Natural surveillance will be heightened since residents are likely to spend more time at home due to the nearby amenities and their use of public areas between homes. See-through palisade fencing, thoughtful landscaping and limited shadow areas, supported by good lighting, will further ensure fewer security vulnerabilities.
However the estate is not devoid of physical security: entrance cameras will monitor every movement, while electric fencing and 24-hour patrols act as active crime deterrents.
Designated armed response teams and guards at each entrance are supplied free of charge by the security company that has been awarded a mandate to secure the Estate. This is to ensure optimum efficiency of security. These armed response teams are permanently on site. Residents may privately contract to this security company for home alarm monitoring.
The 185-hectare Burgundy Estate offers a diverse mixture of more than 5800 high and medium-density development opportunities, to be built over 5 phases. Bulk service levies will be included in the purchase price of stands, and levies will be low, thanks to economies of scale.
The site has been subdivided in 94 mixed sites, including several commercial opportunities for both large and small retailers. These consist of:
* single residential sites of an average size of 500m2,
* group housing sites and
* general residential sites.
Earmarked for Phase A & B:
* 115 plots single residential
* 6 group housing sites (321 units)
* 32 general residential sites (2,530 units)
* Crèche and church
* Commercial centre with proposed medical rooms
* Shopping centre (12,500 GLA)
* School site with playing fields
Infrastructural benefits to all
Although Burgundy Estate is conveniently close to all major surrounding commercial and industrial areas, its central location and quick access to the N7 and N1 will not add to traffic congestion. Quite the contrary - forward planning has ensured that Burgundy will actually alleviate congestion in the area.
Seven exits will ease the flow in and out of the development itself, while an extension of the M12 motorway will connect the development directly to Bosmansdam Road via a new bridge over Plattekloof Road.
Dispersion of traffic is not the only benefit to residents and home-owners of surrounding areas. Local sewerage and bulk services are extensively upgraded to cope with the additional load, while higher capacity storm water drainage and increased water pressure is in the offing too.
