Stellenbosch village voted best in SA

Nooitgedacht Village combines Old Cape and Bo-Kaap architecture with modern commercial and retail components.

Nooitgedacht Village near Stellenbosch has been voted the best mixed-use development in South Africa by the African Property Awards.

Nooitgedacht is a community-focused residential and commercial development, which has attracted investment of over R1 billion since its launch in 2013. It will now vie for the title of Best Mixed-Use Development in Africa at the International Property Awards in London on June 12.

The village is part of the historic Nooitgedacht Estate and combines Old Cape and Bo-Kaap architecture  with modern commercial and retail components.

Property expert Toni Enderli describes the village as “a community model of the future where you can safely live, work and play without getting into a car.”

Apartments are priced from R1.4 million and amenities include a hotel, a restaurant, a medical centre and a gym located around a 2ha eco wetland park. Residents also have access to the 200ha Nooitgedacht farm for cycling, running, picnicking and more.

The village is competing with developments from the rest of Africa, Dubai and Arabia, which will be judged by a panel of 80 property experts chaired by members of the UK’s House of Lords. Winners will be announced at a gala event in London, attended by developer, Werner Wirth.
