Le Parc Residential Estate achieves swift sales in 9 months, with first residents set to move in

Sales of two two- and three-bedroom turn-key built homes in Le Parc Residential Estate in Paarl have been brisk since its launch just 9 months ago in May 2018. Thirty-four homes are currently under construction, and the first completed properties are set to be handed over to their owners at the end of March.

Says Martin van Rooyen of Le Parc Residential Estate: “It is clear that purchasers are recognising the covetable lifestyle aspects on offer at Le Parc, which together with luxury, well-built homes at reasonable prices has resulted in this exceptional sales momentum. There is nothing else like Le Parc in the greater Paarl region: it isn’t just a gated security estate, but a remarkable lifestyle estate where everything has been carefully planned down to the finest detail. It appeals especially to families who want to live in a safe and secure environment with a range of distinct lifestyle benefits.”

Recreational features at Le Parc include a large central park (Le Grande Park) with a multi-sports grassed oval, children’s skate park and pump track, outdoor gym, tennis court, and children’s play equipment. There is also a 4 km cycling and jogging track, additional pocket parks, and a nursery school. A variety of olive groves, vineyards and orchards will be established throughout the estate.

The calibre of the team bringing Le Parc to life is evident through their experience and awards. Construction is by Brick Art, who have completed an impressive portfolio of over 100 blue-chip projects. Brick Art’s work includes Polo House at Val de Vie Estate in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley, voted Best Property Single Unit South Africa at the African Property Awards in 2013/14, and Valentia Manor, which took the award for Best Property Single Unit South Africa at the International Property Awards in 2016/17. Malherbe Rust Architects designed Le Parc’s seven different French-inspired home styles; their previous designs include the Rupert & Rothschild Pavilion and Classique Winery at Simondium, and La Petit Ferme and La Motte in Franschhoek. Neville White of Landscape Architects Uys & White, who is responsible for Val de Vie’s landscape design, has been appointed to ensure that Le Parc’s landscaped areas are distinctive and on par with those of some of the best estates in the Western Cape.

Van Rooyen adds: “The team of professionals that we have assembled and their attention to detail is what has culminated in Le Parc being in a class of its own. Our aim was to provide the best possible residential lifestyle offering within a high-demand buyer bracket right here in Paarl – and we believe that we have achieved that.”

The spatial designs and finishing specifications created by Niche Bespoke Interiors are superior to the norm and include Smeg freestanding ovens, engineered stone countertops, and two different finishing moods: Modern Contemporary and French Modern. The sales team is launching phase 3 within the next 4 weeks, but a few homes are still available in phases 1 and 2 for those who do not wish to wait. Phase 1 has seven double-storey units available, all in Modern Contemporary style with three bedrooms, priced from R2.195m. There are five units available in phase 2, also double-storey with three bedrooms, priced from R2.24m. Finishes of the phase 2 homes will be according to the buyers’ selection. Only a 5% deposit is payable, and transfer duty is included.

Van Rooyen encourages those who wish to purchase one of the existing homes to visit the temporary sales office situated opposite well-known Paarl eatery Knus Karoo Kombuis and to arrange to view the homes currently under construction. “The interest in phase 3 has been encouraging and potential buyers are advised to register their details on our website at www.leparc.co.za to receive pre-launch alerts, be invited to a sneak preview, and to exercise first option to purchase prior to public release.”
