Launched in May 2017, sales at the elite De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate have now exceeded the R350 million mark. De Plattekloof offers a five-star lifestyle for the over-fifties, and received the Residential Development South Africa 2018-2019 accolade at the African Property Awards. Set right next to Baronetcy Estate – arguably the most exclusive estate in the northern suburbs – De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate shares the same developer, Arun Holdings.

Another five-star facility soon to be made available at De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate is a luxurious heated indoor lifestyle/therapy pool set in a recreational ‘spa-like’ environment with steam and treatment rooms. Set for completion later this year, it will be geared towards ensuring that residents remain fit and healthy, and offer specialised year-round treatments in and out of the pool.

Says Johan Laubscher of Arun Holdings: “This facility is another of the elite offerings at De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate which puts the estate in a league of its own, and are the reason why it is considered the most popular luxury retirement lifestyle estate in Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs.

“The appeal of the estate to both owners and astute investors has been reflected in the sales. Adding to the appeal is the fact that they know that they will realise good capital returns. We looked at the 5-year growth rate in Plattekloof, and the figures are as follows: in 2014 the average house price was R2.65m, and in 2019 it was R3.85m, giving capital growth over this period of R1.2m. This is a capital growth percentage of 45.28% over the 5-year period, or an average of 9.06% per annum.”

Various categories of properties are available in De Plattekloof, from independent living apartments and penthouses, and assisted living suites to exquisite homes. Properties in De Plattekloof are sold with full ownership, and feature luxuriously appointed interiors designed by the highly regarded Judith Hendry from Niche Interiors.

The good news for retirees and those over fifty who want a safe and refined lifestyle estate to live out their golden years, is that De Plattekloof has attractive options available at very accessible price points. For example, an assisted living apartment may be bought in the Tijgerzicht complex for R1.367m, while an entry-level independent living apartment in Diemerskuijl is priced at R1.586m. Independent living homes are available from R4.995m, and the Penthouse Collection from R5.347m. No transfer duty is payable.

The estate features spectacular elevated views of Table Bay, Table Mountain and Robben Island, and close proximity to the city. It is also very closely positioned to Panorama Mediclinic with its world-class facilities, while the estate’s own on-site healthcare facility run by Medwell SA is also a major drawcard.

Other lifestyle amenities in store for residents include a health and fitness centre, a ladies’ bar and gentleman’s lounge, library, hairdresser, dining room and coffee bar. There will also be various ‘active’ and ‘pause’ areas, that will include a central park where residents can enjoy a bowling green or simply relax and take in the views and peaceful gardens.

Virtual tours of show units of all of the categories of properties at De Plattekloof are available at
