New townhouse development at iconic golf estate proves popular
Last chance for a sectional title property in exclusive Eagle Canyon Golf Estate
Estate living has become increasingly popular in Gauteng in recent years with residents appreciating the facilities, sense of community and high levels of security on offer.
Not everyone can afford to live in exclusive estates in Johannesburg, however, and it is for this reason that many estate developers today are adding a sectional title component to residential estates. The 40-hectare Eagle Canyon Gold Estate in Honeydew on the West Rand, for instance, has recently launched Hampton Heights, a sectional title townhouse development, and homes here are already proving immensely popular amongst investors.
Debby Woodward of Pam Golding Properties, who specialises in the marketing of sectional title homes within Eagle Canyon, says that Hampton Heights is the last townhouse development to be built within the estate.
“The exclusive homes are priced from R2.175 million and, as they are new, there is no transfer duty. Only 45 units are being developed and they offer one of the last opportunities to buyers to obtain a home in one of Gauteng’s best known and most exclusive golf estates,” she adds.
According to Woodward, two, three and four bedroom townhouses are on sale through Pam Golding Properties off plan, and they are appealing to a range of different types of buyers who are looking to secure a property within the estate.
“The exclusive homes, which boast quality fittings and world class finishes, are being snapped up by young executives, young families, more mature ‘empty nesters’ looking for a more compact home, as well as investors who see the opportunity for good capital growth and solid rental returns,” she adds. “One of our buyers, by way of example, owns an existing home in the estate and has purchased two townhouses to rent out in order to build an investment portfolio.”
Eagle Canyon was the top performing estate according to a 2015 survey conducted by Financial Mail, and has a long list of highly attractive features including beautiful landscaped surrounds, and an exclusive club house, which has a bar, Eyrie Restaurant, function and conference rooms, day spa, wellbeing centre with state-of-the-art gym facilities and patio with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
“There are also tennis courts which have their own smaller club house, and are open to residents to use as they like. The estate’s golf course has a rating of par 72, a driving range, a fully stocked Pro Shop and a golfing academy.”
“Eagle Canyon Golf Estate is well known for the safety and the luxury lifestyle it provides, allowing children the freedom to ride their bikes in the streets and families to walk with friends,” observes Woodward, who has been marketing homes in the estate since 2006.
Pam Golding Properties agent Pat Wallace says that the townhouses offer a range of outstanding features including contemporary modern design, own private walled in garden, modern finishes, powder coated aluminium windows and sliding doors, ceramic tiles, HD DSTV connection in living room, Proquartz countertops, with a breakfast nook as an optional extra.
“The main bedrooms have full bathrooms en-suite and fitted cupboards. A further option is laminated wooden flooring in the bedrooms,” explains Wallace.
While Eagle Canyon has a country ambiance, it is centrally situated, the N1 freeway being within a short driving distance of the estate, providing residents with easy access to all of the main city centres.
In addition it provides easy access to a number of shopping malls, retail outlets and places of entertainment. Clearwater Mall and Cradlestone Mall are both, for example, in close proximity. There is also a range of outstanding private primary and high schools in close proximity of the estate.
“Hampton Heights is an exciting new townhouse development, the homes offering investors a unique opportunity to obtain a property in one of South Africa’s foremost estates. Pam Golding Properties fully expects them to move rapidly,” concludes Wallace.
