DEER PARK PLACE DEVELOPMENT - VREDEHOEK (HIGHLANDS ESTATE)Price R3.1 Million (Incl. VAT - no transfer duty)9 Available units to sellOn a rare occasion, we have the opportunity to develop a site that is so stunning that it's almost daunting. This is certainly the case, located in a gem of a site, in Highlands Estate, high on the rim of Cape Town's extraordinarily beautiful City Bowl.To develop a building that will not intrude on, but enhance this magical setting. A building that will nestle into the landscape as though it has always belonged there, this is Deer Park Place, where those who are fortunate enough to invest and to live here, will enjoy the rewards for decades to come.LIFESTYLE:-Living in a secluded but central, well-treed glade is a privilege in itself, but when the site also offers direct access to Table Mountain National Park, it is truly exceptional, extending a constant invitation to hike, run, mountain bike, or picnic on the slopes of this breathtaking natural world heritage site. Even closer at hand - in fact, on your very doorstep - Rocklands Road Park is ideal for children or a quick stroll with your dogs.An impressive selection of nursery, primary and secondary schools close by makes this an excellent area for families, as does easy access to a variety of shops and an eclectic but delicious selection of restaurants and coffee shops in the immediate vicinity. Of course, these start close to home, with Woodlands Eatery and Deer Park Cafe on the ground floor!LOCATION:-As you stand at the entrance to Deer Park and let your eyes wander from the majestic presence of Table Mountain, along the distinctive profile of Lion's Head and Signal Hill, and across the expanse of Table Bay glistening between the tall Pines and indigenous Yellowwoods, it's natural to feel a sense of awe at the splendour of the scene.But as peaceful and beautiful as this panorama is, Deer Park Place is at the same time an extremely convenient place to live, providing easy access to the multitude of amenities and attractions that make Cape Town one of the world's favourite cities.10 Minutes' drive from here will take you anywhere from the beaches of Camps Bay or Clifton to the vibe of the V&A Waterfront, from the bustling CBD to the funky fringe of Woodstock. The splendour of the Mother City, laid out at your feet!Somehow, it's fitting that the scarcity of available property in this wonderfully elevated, low-traffic site should be matched by a once-in-a-generation opportunity to buy at the bottom of the property cycle, at prices and interest rates not seen for many years.ARCHITECTURE:-Deer Park Place has been designed by award-winning MLB Architects to allow the building to settle into its context, blending with its natural surroundings in a subdued and sensitive way.To acknowledge its spectacular setting, the design concept embodies a continuous band of outward-facing apartments wrapped around a secure, wind-free, covered lightwell. The units of varying sizes and configurations are designed for a compact and sustainable lifestyle with open-plan layouts to the living areas, flowing out onto terraces or balconies and the unsurpassed views on all sides.The materiality is modern with a neutral colour scheme complementing the warmer stone elements and landscaped steel pergolas above. Layering is achieved through stone boundary elements, crisp white brick projections offset against deeper shaded walls, varying proportions of glazed elements, and horizontal pergolas or vertical screens. The composition of these various interventions provides depth and character to the building while visually fragmenting its scale and form.BLUE-CHIP DEVELOPERS:-Built on the experience of visionary property developer John Rabie, Signatura was launched in 2012 and has spearheaded the residential revival of Cape Town's City Bowl and Central City through a series of landmark projects offering world-class luxury, outstanding architecture and intelligent lifestyle design.Having completed a series of high-end residential developments in Vredehoek, Green Point and the Atlantic Seaboard, Signatura has more recently undertaken a number of substantial mixed-use projects, notably the Radisson Blu Hotel and Residence Cape Town, The Onyx on the Heerengracht, WEX1 in Woodstock and The Signature in De Waterkant.
