Cadogan Place in Claremont’s Hen and Chicken area.

The appeal of living in a secure estate, with exceptional views and quick access to top schools and amenities is a significant drawcard for most buyers, especially those moving to the coast from Gauteng and other parts of the country.

Cadogan Place, a new development that has just been completed in Claremont’s exclusive Hen and Chicken area is one of the most desirable locations in the southern suburbs of Cape Town, says Myrna Duveen, Pam Golding Properties agent for Bishopscourt, Trovato Estate, Kenilworth and Claremont.

“The development consists of four striking contemporary homes with high-quality finishes. Two of them have been sold and Pam Golding Properties is marketing the remaining Wilton House, which is listed for R27.495 million, and Cheyne House which is listed for R24.995m – both prices including VAT.

“Buyers want to live in an established suburb, such as Claremont, but they also want the peace of mind that comes with being in a secure estate. Development land is very rare and therefore carries a significant premium in the prime southern suburbs,” says Duveen.

“The homes, with their clean lines and minimalistic feel, are designed to be future-focused. But the clever use of natural light, oak flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise the surrounding view juxtaposes well to ensure the homes feel warm and inviting, creating ideal spaces for family living. Cheyne House has been designed around a mature Yellowwood tree that has been incorporated into the entertainment area.

“Brendan O’Brien, of the Urban Space Property Group, has consciously moved away from the architectural style typically seen in this area.”

Construction is now complete on all four homes, which range in size from 588m2 to 640m2 on plots sized from 650m2 to 781m2, each with a swimming pool.

The homes are designed to be able to operate independently of the municipal grid, with individual boreholes installed and solar panel options. Security measures include access control from a 24-hour manned guardhouse, electric perimeter fencing, individual alarm systems and security cameras. Each home has direct access to a four-car garage, with space for an additional two or three visitors to park outside each house.

“Properties in these sought-after areas are in demand, and given the dearth of available land for development, new-builds are even harder to come by. This ensures an investment in a well-located secure estate such as Cadogan Place is guaranteed to yield an exceptional investment return, even when the market is sluggish,” says O’Brien.
