Rare Cape Peninsula view sites offer magnificent vineyard, ocean and mountainside environment

Award-winning wine estate link for buyers, from R3.5m to R10m

Cape Point VineyardsA rare residential land opportunity for investors with between R3.5 million and R10 million to spend on individual plots has been opened up on two key residential development sites, probably the last of their kind, in Noordhoek, overlooking the Cape Peninsula’s south western coastline.

The large individual plots, each available on separate title within a security environment, are on two estates situated about 800 metres apart. The estates are affiliated to the internationally acclaimed and award-winning Cape Point Vineyards winery.

One, the Cape Point Vineyard’s Estate, is nestled among the farm’s vines, where there are only nine erven of between 2000 m2 and 3 400m2, selling for between R6 million and R10 million. The other, Chapman’s Peak Estate, offers 28 bigger plots of 4 000m2 to 7 000m2 priced from R3.5 million to R10 million, on the slopes of Chapman’s Peak, with spectacular views of Long Beach’s eight-kilometre stretch.

Cape Point Vineyards EstateCape Point Vineyards’ owner Sybrand van der Spuy, says one of the enticing features of both estates is the combination of sea and mountain view.  But the unique factor is the wine farm. This is prestige territory (and terroir) and every wine lover’s dream. Cape Point wines – all produced from the farm’s own 30 hectares of vines – have taken some of the highest local and overseas awards since their first vintage in 2000.

The winery has in its short history garnered more 5-star ratings from Platter’s South African Wines than any other wine producer in South Africa ( seven in total from 2005 -2009);  achieving the magic seven again in terms of trophies at Old Mutual Trophy shows from 2006-2008 (four was the next highest score). Accolades include Platter’s Winery of the Year Award 2008; Most Successful Producer at the Wine Show 2007; international award for best Sauvignon Blanc over £10.00 at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2007 and numerous 90+ Wine Spectator Ratings.

Van der Spuy said the two estates were likely to appeal to affluent local and foreign buyers who were currently on a quest to buy exclusive land in Noordhoek, 30 minutes drive south of the Cape Town CBD. The valley has become one of the Cape Town’s most sought-after residential quarters, with property prices continuing to rise. Van der Spuy was also responsible for the successful 130-plot Stonehaven residential development at nearby Glencairn.

Cape Point Vineyards EstateHe said the plots on the Cape Point Vineyard’s Estate, would be very much part of the wine farm, with vineyards dividing the properties, affording maximum privacy. Among the advantages of these plots would be access to a hiking path from the estate to the top of the mountain, with its 360-degree views over both the Atlantic Ocean and False Bay and the mountain reserve area. On Chapman’s Peak Estate the plots, which are bigger, will allow owners to create their own privacy.

A planting programme has been established to include more vines and the reintroduction of fynbos and other indigenous vegetation. Development of the wetland, as well as construction of dams and other water features on the site are also planned as part of development.

‘When developed, we expect that the properties will average a capital value of around R6million to R20 million, and will rival other local premium residential areas such as neighbouring De Goede Hoop Estate where the manor holds the South African house price record,’ said Van der Spuy.

Wine industry experts agree that Cape Point Vineyards is currently at the top of its game for a boutique estate. Van der Spuy feels it’s a big incentive for local and overseas wine lovers to be associated with the estate, and also to have access to the underground vinoteque to store their own wine collections and to enjoy the facilities of the tasting rooms and the estate cellar.
