Inundated with requests from buyers looking for houses, people want freestanding homes with gardens, views and security, close to the centre of Somerset West, and that’s what the latest product at Somerset Lakes has to offer.
Designed by Schabort Associates Architects, the new development phase is located alongside the 6 ha lake that gives the estate its name. An indigenous fynbos nursery has been established on the estate, which was recently awarded the 2014 SALI Gold Award for landscape design by the South African Landscapers Institute.
Security features include electrified perimeter fencing with high-definition surveillance cameras, which are monitored around the clock from the guardhouse; 24-hour guarding and patrols, and an on-site rapid response team. Other advanced features include biometric fingerprint access control.
All homes in the estate will be hardwired with fibre-optic cabling for internet access, DStv and VOIP telephone connectivity, which will allow free telephone calls within the estate.
A Curro Castle School is was built on the estate and opened its doors in 2015.
Convenient access to the Somerset West village has been provided by the developers through the R16 million construction of Reunion Drive, which links the main entrance of Somerset Lakes to Sir Lowry’s Pass Village Road under a specially constructed railway bridge.
