Voliere is a newly launched residential development to be built on one of the last developable plots of land within the urban edge of popular tourist and student town Stellenbosch. Situated close to urban amenities, its setting is conducive to both work and enjoying a country lifestyle with many renowned wine farms and outdoor markets situated in the region.
A mix of 262 freehold title homes and sectional title units in three apartment buildings, Voliere will be developed on a plot-and-plan and turnkey basis, to be released in four phases. “The market response to our pre-launch campaign has been overwhelming, confirming our location, product mix and pricing resonates with the demographic we’re targeting,” says Stefan Braun, the estate’s managing director and development manager.
While Stellenbosch’s architecture has a particular style, with the historical Cape Dutch and vernacular especially prominent, Voliere’s homes will be a more contemporary interpretation thereof. Braun says this will ‘provide for interesting streetscapes, blending family homes and apartment buildings in a harmonious, natural co-existence within a communal village concept lifestyle’.
Voliere (translated as aviary from French and with all the estate’s roads named after birds) will offer state-of-the-art security and fibre to the home, landscaped gardens, workspaces including meeting rooms, an outdoor gym and perimeter running track. “We aim to mirror the high standards of security attained by Welgevonden Estate, our neighbours, for our residents within a protected perimeter,” says Braun. “Our residents can rest assured that technology and trained personnel are watching over them and are immediately available in an emergency.”
CCTV surveillance systems with built-in artificial intelligence, access control systems incorporating touchless biometric access, delivery management for online orders, and a community app will allow residents to participate as a community and allow authenticated access to visitors in an audited and controlled manner.
Construction of the estate is set to be complete towards the last quarter of 2022.
