De Plattekloof

De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate offers a five-star lifestyle for the over-fifties, and recently received the Residential Development South Africa 2018-2019 accolade at the African Property Awards. Now potential purchasers can come and see the calibre of this estate for themselves at the ‘Grand Reveal’ event being held on site in Olienhout Avenue, off Plattekloof Road in Plattekloof, on Saturday 30 March 2019.

Says Johan Laubscher of Arun Holdings, who are collaborating with Old Mutual Alternative Investments to create De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate: “This Grand Reveal event is where we are officially presenting our first set of completed full ownership luxury retirement homes to the public. Guests will be shuttled to the showhouse by golf cart, and can expect the five-star treatment that we are known for, with canapes and champagne as well as a range of teas, and coffee prepared by trained baristas. Visitors may arrive at any time between 10h00 and 17h00 on Saturday 30 March 2019. This event will allow retirees to come and have a leisurely look at our fully furnished show property accompanied by our dedicated on-site sales consultants. We also have a select number of independent and assisted living apartments as part of our showcase on offer.”

The show house is an example of the first set of homes on offer at De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate which are designed in a modern vernacular style and positioned for maximum exposure to sunlight.

Adds Laubscher: “De Plattekloof’s first homes set a new benchmark for retirement living with meticulous attention to detail applied during the planning process. They offer an open-plan concept with high ceilings and invite you to start enjoying a modern retirement lifestyle. The highest quality of workmanship and finishes has been achieved.”

Designer kitchens are standard in the homes at De Plattekloof, with engineered stone countertops and integrated appliances that include Smeg oven, hob, extractor fan, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher, and taps by Hansgrohe.

The show house has been elegantly finished and furnished by Niche Bespoke Interiors to a level previously unseen in the retirement market to date. Judith Hendry of Niche Bespoke Interiors explains: “We created comfortable, contemporary furniture and layered luxurious finishes to create the perfect, graceful home for modern living. In the living room depth was created by utilising moody elements such as the feature Elitis handwoven wallpaper contrasting with light furnishings. Striking original abstract art, plush rugs and accessories complete this scheme.  Throughout the rest of the home natural textures and a neutral colour palette create a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. The master bedroom has a calming neutral colour scheme, allowing the beautifully detailed headboard to take centre-stage complemented by unique Mark Alexander accent fabrics on accessories. It’s well worth the visit.”

De Plattekloof is a highly attractive and luxurious award-wining retirement estate that is proving to be the premium full-ownership retirement address in the Cape metropole. It includes a fully operational on-site healthcare facility operated by Medwell SA, and a private lounge and recreation area with a majestic view of Table Mountain and the greater Cape Town. The five-star resort-type environment will ultimately also include a clubhouse with facilities and activities ranging from bridge to reading and music, a health and fitness centre and other recreational offerings easily accessed by golf-cart shuttle.

Adds Laubscher: “For those currently doing their research on where best to retire, this ‘Grand Reveal’ event represents the ideal opportunity to come and visit De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate in a sophisticated yet relaxed format. We look forward to welcoming visitors to our facility and are encouraged by those that have already moved into this prestigious full-ownership estate.”
