Garden Cities' new Hillcrest gated village at Pinehurst
Homes up to 300m2 with upmarket finishes
Garden Cities is developing Hillcrest, its newest, most upmarket village at Pinehurst, which was established 16 years ago as the company’s northern areas flagship on the border of Durbanville.
Planned to accommodate over 3 000 homes, Pinehurst is nearing completion. One of the most successful suburbs of its kind in the Cape metropole, it was, at an early stage in its progress, named among the developments with the highest annual capital growth.
The new luxury development, Hillcrest, features large single and double-storey houses up to 300 m2 on relatively smaller plots starting in size from 500m2 for more effective resource management and conservation. The houses feature totally revamped upmarket finishes, with Bosch 900 gas/electric ovens, Revelstone paving and frameless shower doors. All homes have either a braai room or a roofed patio with built-in braai.
In line with the high specifications for the new homes at Hillcrest, the gated village will have 24-hour guarded access, and one of the several parks will feature a communal lap pool for residents.
To minimise the strain on resources such as water, power and fuel, streetside gardens and verges at Hillcrest will be hard landscaped with gravel and planters, and will no longer feature grass. As a further conservation measure, grey water systems are being installed in each house, as part of the project, and rainwater harvesting is under consideration.
A major advantage of Hillcrest, which is situated high on the Pinehurst site with views over the mountains and winelands, is its proximity to the Meridian Pinehurst School and the Pinehurst neighbourhood shopping centre, both of which are within walking distance.
Prices of the houses, which are available from May this year for both owners and investors, range from R2.6 million to R3.6 million.
