Stellenbosch gets new security estate

Voliere is a newly launched residential development to be built on one of the last developable plots of land within the urban edge of popular tourist and student town Stellenbosch. Situated close to urban amenities, its setting is conducive to both work and enjoying a country lifestyle, with many renowned wine farms and outdoor markets situated in the region. A mix of 262 freehold title homes and sectional title units in three apartment buildings, Voliere will be developed on a plot-and-plan and turnkey basis, to be released in four phases.

“The market response to our pre-launch campaign has been overwhelming, confirming our location, product mix and pricing resonate with the demographic we’re targeting,” says Stefan Braun, the estate’s MD and development manager. While Stellenbosch’s architecture has a particular style, with the historical Cape Dutch and Cape vernacular especially prominent, Voliere’s homes will be a more contemporary interpretation thereof. Braun says this will “provide for interesting streetscapes, blending family homes and apartment buildings in harmonious, natural co-existence within a communal village concept lifestyle”.

Voliere (translated as aviary from French and with its roads named after birds) will offer state-of-the-art security and fibre to the home, landscaped gardens, workspaces including meeting rooms, an outdoor gym and a perimeter running track. “We aim to mirror the high standards of safety and security attained by Welgevonden Estate, our neighbour, for our residents,” says Braun. “Our residents and their families can rest assured that technology and trained personnel are watching over them and immediately available in the event of an emergency.”

CCTV surveillance systems with built-in artificial intelligence, access control systems incorporating touchless biometric access for residents and regular estate users, delivery management for online orders and an estate community app will allow residents to participate and collaborate as a community and allow authenticated access to visitors in an audited and controlled manner. Construction of the entire estate is set to be completed towards the last quarter of 2022.
