Sales of the two- and three-bedroom turn-key built homes in Le Parc Residential Estate in Paarl have been brisk since the launch of the estate in May 2018.

Thirty-four homes are currently under construction, and the first completed properties are set to be handed over to their owners in April, says Martin van Rooyen of Le Parc Residential Estate.

“Le Parc is a lifestyle estate where everything has been carefully planned down to the finest detail. It appeals especially to families who want to live in a safe and secure environment with a range of distinct lifestyle benefits.”

Recreational features at Le Parc include a large central park – Le Grande Park – with a multi-sports grassed oval, a children’s skate park and pump track, an outdoor gym, a tennis court, and children’s play equipment. There is also a 4 km cycling and jogging track, additional pocket parks, and a nursery school. A variety of olive groves, vineyards and orchards will be established throughout the estate.

Construction is by Brick Art, which has completed more than 100 blue-chip projects including Polo House at Val de Vie Estate in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley, and Valentia Manor.

Malherbe Rust Architects designed Le Parc’s seven different French-inspired home styles; their previous designs include the Rupert & Rothschild Pavilion and Classique Winery at Simondium, and La Petit Ferme and La Motte in Franschhoek. Neville White of Landscape Architects Uys & White, who is responsible for Val de Vie’s landscape design, has been appointed to ensure that Le Parc’s landscaped areas are distinctive and on par with those of some of the best estates in the Western Cape.

The spatial designs and finishing specifications created by Niche Bespoke Interiors include Smeg freestanding ovens, engineered stone countertops, and two different finishing moods: Modern Contemporary and French Modern.

The sales team is launching phase three of Le Parc within the next few weeks, but a few homes are still available in phases one and two. Phase one has seven double storey units available, all in Modern Contemporary style with three bedrooms, priced from R2.195m.

There are five double storey three bedroom units available in phase two, priced from R2.24m. Finishes of the phase two homes will be according to the buyers’ selection. A 5% deposit is payable, and transfer duty is included.

Van Rooyen says those who wish to purchase can visit the temporary sales office opposite Knus Karoo Kombuis in Paarl, and arrange to view the homes under construction.
