Showhouse completed at De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate

The luxury retirement home showhouse now available to view at De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate.

De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate offers a five-star lifestyle for the over-fifties, and recently received the Residential Development South Africa 2018-2019 accolade at the African Property Awards.

Now potential buyers can come and see this estate for themselves at the Grand Reveal event being held on site in Olienhout Avenue, off Plattekloof Road in Plattekloof, on Saturday March 30.

Says Johan Laubscher of Arun Holdings, which is collaborating with Old Mutual Alternative Investments to create De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate: “This Grand Reveal event is where we are officially presenting our first set of completed full ownership luxury retirement homes to the public.

“Guests will be shuttled to the showhouse by golf cart, and can expect five-star treatment, with canapés and champagne as well as a range of teas, and coffee prepared by trained baristas. Visitors may arrive at any time between 10 am and 5 pm on Saturday. This event will allow retirees to have a leisurely look at our furnished show property accompanied by our dedicated on-site sales consultants. We also have a select number of independent and assisted living apartments as part of our showcase on offer.”

The showhouse is an example of the first set of homes on offer at De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate which are designed in a modern vernacular style and positioned for maximum exposure to sunlight.

Adds Laubscher: “De Plattekloof’s first homes offer an open plan concept with high ceilings and the highest quality of workmanship and finishes has been achieved.”

Designer kitchens are standard in the homes at De Plattekloof, with engineered stone countertops and integrated appliances that include Smeg oven, hob, extractor fan, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher, and taps by Hansgrohe.

The showhouse has been finished and furnished by Niche Bespoke Interiors. Judith Hendry of Niche says: “We created comfortable, contemporary furniture and layered luxurious finishes to create the perfect, graceful home for modern living. In the living room depth was created by utilising moody elements such as the feature Elitis handwoven wallpaper contrasting with light furnishings. Features include striking original abstract art, plush rugs and accessories.

“Throughout the rest of the home natural textures and a neutral colour palette create a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. The master bedroom has a calming neutral colour scheme, allowing the beautifully detailed headboard to take centre-stage complemented by Mark Alexander accent fabrics on accessories.”

De Plattekloof is a luxurious award-winning retirement estate that includes an on-site healthcare facility operated by Medwell SA, and a private lounge and recreation area with views of Table Mountain and the greater Cape Town. The five-star resort-type environment will ultimately also include a clubhouse with facilities and activities ranging from bridge to reading and music, a health and fitness centre and other recreational offerings accessed by golf-cart shuttle.

De Plattekloof Lifestyle Estate’s Grand Reveal event will be held on March 30 from 10 am to 5 pm. Visit, or call Dawid Prinsloo on 060 960 0100.
