Are you a mature ‘empty nester’ looking for a more compact luxury home that will enable you to get away from it all while at the same time allowing you to remain close to where the actions is? If so, a home in the Kruinkloof Bushveld Estate, which is situated on the slopes of the highest ridge in the charming Johannesburg suburb of Boskruin, may just be for you.
Gwen Kenmuir of Pam Golding Properties, who is marketing the remaining 32 properties available for sale within the eight-acre estate, says that Kruinkloof is especially designed for mature individuals or couples, and “brings together the seemingly incompatible conceptions of a bushveld lifestyle with all of the conveniences of modern city life”.
“The estate borders a private 30-acre nature reserve on the ridge and yet it is also located just 12km west of Sandton,” she adds. “This is an idyllic setting for these beautifully appointed country homes, which offer a completely new lifestyle concept for mature people.
“The estate has been designed with the needs of the typical empty-nester couple or single person who is entering a new, more mature phase of life in mind. Residents tend to still be economically active and many have business interests in the city, but at the same time they also want to live in a tranquil setting that is close to nature.
“The homes, all of which are north-facing, are ideal for the older executive or professional couple who are looking for convenience and an attractive ‘lock up and go’ lifestyle that will offer them a maximum measure of freedom.”
Kruinkloof Bushveld Estate buyers who purchase plots are provided with the opportunity to design their own home to meet their specific needs and requirements. According to Kenmuir, there is a choice of five different home packages to choose from, which vary in size and in design. The average stand is about 440 square metres in size, but can go up to a little more than 600 square metres. Owners can also select from a range of quality fittings and appliances.
“All of the houses are designed as styled contemporary bushveld-inspired residences, and with their stonework and landscaped indigenous gardens, to blend in seamlessly with the bushveld of the area,” notes Kenmuir.
The plots are available from just R600 000 and a complete home may be developed to specification for between R2.5 million and R3.95 million.
“In either case these properties offer good value and represent a sound investment opportunity in an area that has been shown to hold its values well. As these are new homes, no transfer duties are applicable,” points out Kenmuir.
The homes offer designer kitchens, quality appliances, entertainment living areas, fibre optic cabling for quick internet speeds, USB ports and television points in all living rooms, a fireplace as well as state-of-the-art security, which includes electrified fencing, CCTV and biometric access.
They are, in addition, wheelchair friendly and, if necessary, can be designed to meet the specifications of various types of disabilities. Many homeseekers will also appreciate the fact that residents are able keep two small lap dogs on their properties.
“The attractive clubhouse, which has been developed from the original farmhouse on the estate, has a gym, library, lounge and bistro centre, which are all at the disposal of residents. Furnished apartments are available upstairs, where residents’ guests can stay. There is also a boma with fire-pit where friends and family can be entertained, and a resort-style swimming pool.
“There is easy access to the private nature reserve which offers a beautiful walk to the summit and a look-out point on the koppie above the estate which offers views all the way to the Magaliesberg. There is an abundance of unique fauna and flora within the reserve.”
The estate has been designed to be as self-sufficient as possible and makes use of an underground dam where rainwater accumulates, a borehole and irrigation system to provide complete independence from the water grid.
Kruinkloof Bushveld Estate has easy access to the N1 freeway, Beyers Naudé Drive, and Witkoppen Road as well as Sandton, Fourways, Kyalami and Lanseria Airport.
Quality local hospitals such as Netcare Olivedale Hospital, Wilgehewel Hospital and Flora Clinic are also nearby. Large shopping centres located in close proximity include Cresta Centre, Fourways Mall, Northgate, Randpark Ridge and ClearWater Mall, as well as the local Boskruin Shopping Centre. The Boskruin community centre offers various activities including tennis, art classes, line dancing, Pilates for mature folk, as well as a library.
“This estate offers a completely unique lifestyle that is tranquil, free of concerns and yet still highly convenient. The homes here offer those who are in what we may call a pre-retirement phase of their lives, a once in a lifetime investment opportunity,” concludes Kenmuir.
