More luxury, more convenience, more leisure… Steyn City’s flagship development, the City Centre, represents the apex of apartment living
Having already proved its unerring ability to answer the needs of today’s homeowners with its award-winning array of facilities and homes, Steyn City has turned its attention to a new type of property owner: the individual or family that wants all the convenience of apartment living, but also demands the comfort and spaciousness of a freestanding home.
Enter the City Centre – a development that has been designed to serve not as a stopgap on your way to a permanent address – according to Steyn City Properties CEO Giuseppe Plumari – but is ready to be your home forever.
What makes this development so attractive, he explains, is its unique design. Rather than the large, uncompromising blocks of flats we are accustomed to, the City Centre is a series of intimate villages that together make up a pedestrianised zone. Built around a hillside, with each village surrounding a treed piazza that will be lined with boutique stores and high-end restaurants once the development is complete, the concept is not dissimilar from the old European capitals that charm with their sense of community.
The apartments themselves present higher ceilings, larger rooms, and luxe touches like integrated Gaggenau appliances in Blu line kitchens. Kohler fittings and sanitary-ware further lift these homes out of the ordinary. Of course, Steyn City is known for its accent on leisure time and the City Centre upholds this tradition. Residents enjoy access to all facilities, including the 2,000 acre parkland itself – giving them the largest back garden in South Africa.
They can go golfing, horse riding, bird watching, fishing, eat at a variety of restaurants, run or cycle along the floodlit 45km promenade, or enjoy MTB along the 50km track. Then there’s the indoor aquatic centre, the well-equipped gym and outdoor exercise nodes. For kids, the dino park, skate park and play nodes are a major plus. Add to this the recently launched 300m lagoon powered by GAST ClearwaterTM, where families can partake in a wide range of water based beach style activities just a walk away from City Centre.
Plus, with AAA-grade offices on site at Capital Park, the Steyn City School campus and the recently opened Ultimate Helistop for business and leisure travel, everything residents need is available in one place. Outstanding security including triple biometric access, completes the offering.
