Schonenberg Retirment Village Show House Launch - Images & Media Release

Schonenberg Retirement Village has announced the launch of its exclusive show house. Schonenberg Retirement Village, situated within the upmarket Schonenberg Estate in Somerset West, is an exclusive development designed offering a variety of accommodation and amenities to provide for the sunset years.

Designed to complement the Schonenberg Estate development, the Village presents a unique opportunity for families to live in close proximity, within walking distance, within the same secure estate. Ideally situated just 30 minutes drive from Cape Town, the Village has direct access to the up-market restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops, garden centre and retail outlets in the new Waterstone Village Shopping Centre and nearby Somerset Mall.

The Cape Vernacular style of the Village, which will blend architecturally with the neighbouring Schonenberg Estate, offers a range of 190 homes and apartments of varying sizes to suit a broad assortment of requirements. A comprehensive choice of two and three bedroom homes with single or double garages range in size from a compact, easy-to-maintain 110m² unit to a more spacious 154m² home. Larger homes may be designed on request.

Granite worktops, aluminium windows, high quality fittings and finishes come standard with the luxury homes in the Village. One-bedroom apartments with carport and two-bedroom apartments with garage will offer compact living, while the healthcare centre will comprise a number of assisted living units that receive professional supportive care for those who still live independently but require assistance. These 32m² – 43m² bedsitter units comprise a kitchenette / living area / bedroom and en-suite bathroom.

The first of the four phases of development will comprise 51 houses and 20 one and two bedroom apartments, together with temporary club and healthcare facilities to ensure the first set of residents are provided with the full range of services from the time they take occupation.

Designed with ultimate security in mind, Schonenberg Retirement Village is ensured using cutting edge security, camera surveillance and wireless internal communication system linking all homes with the 24-hour manned central security room.

The development of Schonenberg Retirement Village and Estate is being carefully monitored in accordance with legislation to ensure construction has the least possible negative impact on the environment. This includes the management of the natural resources both on and off site, the Village infrastructure, as well as the wetland and open spaces.

These include Oude Westhof Village in Protea Valley, Woodside Village in Rondebosch, Peers Village in Fish Hoek and Alphenvale in Constantia.
