Sol Kerzner, pictured above with his daughter Andrea, has developed quite a reputation for building and developing luxury estates around the world, a skill which has seen him become one of South Africa’s most successful businesspeople.
So far his résumé boasts the likes of Sun City, the Lost City, Sandton Sun and the Beverley Hills Hotel, and now he’s looking to add an exclusive Cape Town estate to that mix.
The 81-year-old is going to use 10 hectares of land he owns between Hout Bay and Llandudno for his new project, with BusinessTech reporting that construction group Blackland has started on the first houses in the estate.
They spoke with Ross Levin, director of Seeff Atlantic Seaboard and City Bowl:
[He said] that all infrastructure and services are already in place, and the gym and security systems will be ready before the first house is handed over.
According to Levin, three of the initial eight houses have sold at record prices of R30.5 million to R37 million…
Levin said that in addition to high demand from local buyers, there has been strong international interest with two of the properties sold to buyers from Germany and the UK.
Pretty decent start with those record sales, set in one of the area’s most sought after locations:
The 10 hectare Kerzner Estate, is located high on Leeukoppie and offers views of Chapman’s Peak, the bay, valley and mountains.
There are 48 plots of around 1,500sqm each and a choice of super luxury designer homes, each uniquely tailored to the individual site and incorporate greening and natural building materials.
House sizes range from 374sqm-738sqm with the number of bedrooms varying while plot prices start from R3.7 million.
Additional features include air conditioning, fireplaces in the living areas, EuroCasa Kitchens with Miele Appliances, stone and wooden flooring, top quality bathrooms, double glazing, swimming pools, provision for grey and rain water harvesting and landscaping allowances.
These artist renditions also come via BusinessTech:
Not bad, with a cracking view down over Hout Bay and onto Chappies.
For those who want to flex their own creative muscle, buyers can purchase a plot and hire their own preferred architect to custom design their house.
The estate will also feature a top class security and fitness centre, and property owners will have access to a number of world-class Kerzner Hospitality Services.
In other words, it’s going to good living.
