Design and Finishes
The houses have been meticulously designed for contemporary living, including fully fitted kitchen with granite tops. Appliances included are gas hobs, electric ovens and extractor fan.
Buyers have a choice of tiles for the kitchen, living areas, and bathrooms. Bedrooms will be tiled or have laminated flooring. Garages will have an automated aluminum door.
Access from the garages leads directly into the scullery, which are separate from the kitchens. The sculleries also open into the enclosed yards, which will have 2 x 2500L water tanks, a washing line and space for gas bottles. The houses will be wifi and inverter ready.
Buyers are welcome to make changes to the plans, using the developer’s Architect at no additional cost. If the size increases, a quote will be given before proceeding. Otherwise all you need to do, is choose your finishes (a nice selection).
This property has been zoned residential since 2001, and Homestead Views is the last phase of the adjacent Homestead Village, developed 16 years ago, and which has its entrance in Reservoir Road. Homestead Views has its own entrance in Homestead Road and its own home owners association, and more modern architecture.
The timing of this development could not be better, with our stock of houses to sell at an all-time low, after our record sales over the last two years.
The reason for the excellent response from buyers is the affordability and the excellent value, with prices being all-in, including the plot, VAT (no transfer duty) and transfer costs. Bond costs are payable by the buyer, if applicable.
It is a very appropriate development, being adjacent to existing developments and homes, and within easy walking distance of the centre of town.
We at Pam Golding Properties have built a wonderful relationship with the developers, Ntaba Holdings, over the last two years on St Francis Links, where they have been active, and are delighted to be working with them again on this exciting project. We have shown our commitment to the development with three of us at Pam Golding Properties buying units.
