Stellenbosch at a glance
The inspiring town of Stellenbosch
Stellenbosch is not just the second oldest town in the country but arguably the most scenic and historically preserved place in South Africa. The typical architecture of neo-Dutch, Georgian and modern Victorian will always leave you captivated.
Already in the early nineteenth century the University was established, which remains today still one of the corner stones of this town. It also boasts with an international recognized research and innovation facility. No wonder that the town has become one of the sought-after locations for entrepreneurs and major international companies. The town has long since shrugged off its sleepy image and has been replaced by various exciting activities such as festivals, conferences, business events and off course beautiful weddings. The lifestyle has become that of leisure with a village atmosphere and yet it is only thirty minute drive from Cape Town. On your way you will pass various well known wine estates, which is off course another major attraction. The mild weather and unique terroir is ideal for cultivating grapes of world class standards.
Stellenbosch boasts with various modern residential security estates to which we as an estate agency would like to introduce to you as the reader;
The beautiful Welgevonden estate sits on the Northern side of Stellenbosch with the Simonsberg mountains as only one of the great views to be seen from this popular estate.
The secure estate offers various property investment options and is pedestrian- and child friendly with excellent security (2 access-controlled gates, electric fences and full-time security guards) which offers the residents a safe and pleasant environment to live in.
There are various parks in the estate with playground equipment and picnic tables. Residents are also encouraged to use the dam for relaxing walks and catch-and-release angling. Rowing is also permitted within set guidelines.
De Wijnlanden estate is well-established residential estate for the past 10 years with the well-known Meerlust Wine estate as neighbour.
The estate is spread over 55 hectares with a very special layout which ensures privacy for every house as it backs on to an olive grove, indigenous renosterveld or cabernet sauvignon vineyard.
Conservation and security is a high priority with 24 hour guard access control, electric fences and thermal cameras monitoring the boundaries of the estate.
Another very convenient feature of this unique family estate is De Wijnlanden Kids, a crèche for children from 1-7 years which provides a safe environment for them.
De Zalze golf estate is a residential and golf estate in the heart of the Winelands!! It is 300 hectare of pure pleasure and spectacular views and offers a great golf course, luxury accommodation, and even the opportunity to enjoy wine tasting and dining at Terroir Restaurant all hosted on the estate.
This estate has proved to be one of the most popular and sought after estates in the Stellenbosch region and offers various real estate investment opportunities with record sales since launching in 2002.
Jamestown, also known as Webersvallei, is a quiet rural settlement on the southern outskirts of Stellenbosch and situated next to Blaauwklippen Vineyards on the eastern side of route R44.
Over time, Jamestown has transformed from a subsistence farming village into a primarily residential area and today has several churches, two government schools – Weber Gedenk Primary School and Stellenzicht Secondary School, pre-primary childcare facilities, public health clinic, postal agency, library, communal sports ground and a cemetery.
Jamestown became very popular as a residential area the past few years and offers great property investment opportunities. Especially with the new upgraded Stellenbosch Square shopping mall and Aan de Weber security estate with le Clemence Retirement Village and De Zalze security estate as nearby neighbours.
