Second phase of affordably priced development being sold off plan
Private estate living is not for everyone, but there comes a time in one’s life when it feels right to seek out security in serene surrounds among like-minded people, and that’s when private developments such as Little Princess Vlei, tick the box
Set on the banks of Little Princess Vlei in Elfindale, a visionary developer – Quentin Pavitt – has created such a place, with 14 elegant, freehold homes aimed at the over-50 community.
“We developed the estate particularly thinking about the needs of the over 50 community, so Little Princess Vlei Estate has been created as a village that caters for the needs of those looking for this particular lifestyle offering,” says Pavitt, a well-known property personality who lives on the adjoining site.
The estate is fully enclosed with electric fencing and offers access control as well as CCTV camera surveillance to offer residents complete piece of mind. The picturesque estate is a short drive from the Meadowridge Park n Shop and the Constantia Hospital and Emergency Clinic, while 10 minutes away is the popular Blue Route Shopping Mall.
“When you reach 50 your priorities change and you no longer need a house that caters for children and grandchildren to sprawl out in. You realise the value of time and you want to enjoy your leisure with your loved one, rather than being hassled with maintaining a larger property,” says Pavitt. “It’s also wonderful to be surrounded by a community of like-minded people.”
The second phase of the development is being sold off plan, with transfer of the plots scheduled to kick off during September 2018. The homes are affordably priced from R2,050,000 to R2,500,000, with a monthly levy of R2,000 to cover estate and municipal costs.
The two-bedroom units were designed by LvZ Design and Décor and offer built-in wardrobes, a full bathroom, guest loo, open plan lounge/dining room and a fitted kitchen. Homes are secured on a freehold plot and range from 80 to 100 square metres, which includes a garage that is plumbed for a washing machine and offers direct access into the home. fully secured and maintained
“We’re looking forward to breaking ground with Phase 2, which has been earmarked for the start of October 2018,” says Pavitt. “It’s incredible to think that this estate community is going to start coming to life around February or March next year when the first homeowners start moving in.”
Those residents will enjoy the luxury of life on the 7,000 square metre estate without the burdens of maintenance or concerns over keeping the estate green, as all gardens will be maintained and irrigated using water from the vlei.
“A key feature of the estate is the 3,500 square metres of common property that fronts on to the vlei. While this is obviously not suited to families with young children, it does offer a wonderful open space for residents to enjoy walks and picnics with grandchildren,” adds Pavitt.
There will also be a Care Service Provider available at an additional cost to offer in-home care and support for frail or infirm residents who prefer to enjoy estate living and a better quality of life.
Pavitt has many years of experience as an estate agent, professional valuer and property developer, and he has also served the property industry on various property related committees and boards. He brings all his experience to bear with this unique development.
An open day will be held on September 23 from 14H00 – 17H00.
