Little Princess Vlei Cape Town Retirement Village
Ground breaking in October on Phase 2 of stunning waterfront estate
Little Princess Vlei Estate sets the benchmark for over 50’s living
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. Recognising the unique setting of the estate and the importance of conserving its pristine environment, Pavitt has also registered Friends of the Little Princess Vlei with the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA). He also hopes to encourage the local community to get involved in tracking the local wildlife – especially the many species of birds that can be found in the locale, and something the residents will have right on their doorstep.
“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 ones 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 in early 2019. The homes are affordably priced from R2,250,000 to R2,450,000, with a monthly levy of R2,000. Interest has been intense with only four units remaining for sale."
The units offer built-in wardrobes, a full bathroom, guest loo, open plan lounge/dining room and a modern 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.
“We’re looking forward to breaking ground with Phase 2, which has been earmarked for the start of October 2018 and to welcoming the residents to their new homes in March next year,” says Pavitt.
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.
