Designed by MLH Architects and Planners, New Court at Steenberg seeks to add something special to the Constantia Valley, to provide an estate so desperately needed, the ideal home for empty nesters. This unique development is one of the most exciting offerings of its kind that has come onto the market in Cape Town. The site is located in a rare and prime position with its mature green context already in place. Access to the site is from a private driveway off Zwaanswyk Road which leads to the entrance gatehouse. The houses are designed around a central living square with each house having a front ‘stoep’ and bay window overlooking the square. Adding to the ambience are mature trees, high quality landscaping with benches and a central water feature. A series of arched walkways lead off the square to the garden walkways, including a gate with direct access to the adjacent bridal path and Nature Reserve. Each house has a seamless flow to a secluded terrace which overlooks the expansive garden setting and enjoy panoramic mountain and tree views. The architectural style of New Court at Steenberg draws on the language of the Cape Vernacular, with the inclusion of elements such as white walls, double pitch gables, plaster mouldings and sash windows. A large pool and poolhouse also feature. Careful consideration has been taken with the positioning and design of the proposed building footprints, roadways and sidewalks. Perimeter garden paths will link focal areas of interest, which include a rose garden, herb and fruit tree gardens and court with central water feature. Seating will be placed around the communal garden to capture views and provide opportunities for contemplation. In addition there are plans to plant a vineyard in the 500m2 area next to the entrance which will provide homeowners with their own exclusive wine, perhaps merlot or pinot noir. Are you over 50, retired or your kids have grown and left the nest? Had enough of the big house and maintenance that comes with that? Too young for a retirement village? Need a home more suitable to maintain your lifestyle, in a safe environment? Well, look no further. This has to be the perfect place to live.
