Aan de Wijnlanden residential estate is a gateway into the world-renowned Winelands area. It is situated opposite the historic Meerlust wine estate and close to some of the best schools in the Western Cape. You can now buy your own freestanding home in this high security estate surrounded by majestic mountain ranges. With only a 15-minute drive to Stellenbosch and Somerset West and 20 minutes to Cape Town International Airport, all your urban needs are also catered for.
CHOICE OF PLOTS
The estate – with 555 full title properties, developed in four phases, offers a choice range of plots where a number of selected builders can construct your dream home. All the homes are built to benefit from a sunny north or east orientation, with most enjoying views of the world-renowned Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains.
Inclusive packages are available from R1.8m to R3.5m. To date, three of the four phases have been serviced, 200 homes have been completed and another 120 homes are in various stages of completion. The final phase of 170 premium erven is due to be released early in 2023.
The estate architect, award-winning Gisele Vanderstraeten, has designed homes that are modern, private and exclusive. The style is contemporary Cape vernacular, with a strong emphasis on economy and aesthetic cohesiveness. Energy saving measures are implemented throughout and all homes are equipped with the latest fibre internet technology.
Fostering a sense of community is an important part of life on the estate, with amenities already in place, and many more planned. The estate clubhouse has recently been completed, with a well-equipped gym, two tennis courts and a large swimming pool provided for the sport enthusiast. Hospitality space includes a well-equipped kitchen, a large banqueting area, TV lounge and sundowner patio.
For those who like to explore the outdoors, kilometres of walking trails and cycling tracks are being developed. These are set among wetlands, dams and natural fynbos areas, all located within the safety of the estate’s perimeter. The estate clubhouse has also provided for a preschool. This facility is ready to go, and parents are already lining up to enrol their children.
With almost 20% of the estate dedicated to conservation or private open space, you will never run out of beautiful fauna and flora to explore. Apart from the estate dams and wetlands that house many species of indigenous birds, a 5ha Renosterveld conservation area has been set aside, and is currently being rehabilitated. This area is home to many rare and threatened flower species that occur only in this specific veld type.
Tortoises, porcupines, cape dwarf chameleons and steenbuck have already found a home in the Renosterveld, and we hope to manage and conserve these creatures, together with the wonderful flora that exists here. A recent initiative of the Aan de Wijnlanden residents has seen the construction of a free run dog park, as well as a number of owl boxes and raptor perches.
A landscape team ensures curb-side plant and flower beds are well maintained. A large proportion of the estate’s flora is irrigated by a series of dams and boreholes – infrastructure that is developed and constantly maintained to ensure Aan de Wijnlanden’s impressive appearance remains intact.
The latest technology and a professional team of security guards provide peace of mind for residents. The estate is protected by 24-hour security services, and a three kilometre masonery wall, electrified and monitored with more than 20 CCTV cameras. The wall and the perimeter roads, both inside and outside the estate, set it apart as a premium security estate.
Apart from proximity to popular Winelands towns and the airport, residents are spoilt for choice with some great restaurants and shopping centres a short drive away. Top private and public Stellenbosch and Somerset West schools are also nearby. Other amenities on the doorstep include the wine farms Meerlust, Vergenoegd, Spier and Welmoed. The Stellenbosch and Somerset West Mediclinic private hospitals are located minutes away.
