Old Meets New In A Unique Luxury Residential Development

Category Property News

South Africa, Cape Town, December 2019; A UNIQUE luxury residential development that merges the beautiful architectural style of a bygone era with contemporary modern design has been launched in Cape Town's popular Southern Suburbs.

Developed by Linear Developments and marketed by Dogon Group Properties, the Parry Road Development is situated in Parry Road, Claremont, and once completed will feature five luxurious 3-bedroom homes, ranging in size from 178 square metres up to 268 square metres.

The original Victorian house situated at Parry Road will form the centrepiece of the development - and set the design theme for the rest of the houses - with four new double-storey homes being sympathetically built on the property.

The 186 square metre Victorian house is thought to be the original farm-house of the Palmyra farm. Built in 1890 it is classified as a Grade 3A heritage building and is an excellent example of it's kind. This beautiful house will be completely restored to its former glory - bringing back to life all the original features - such as working fireplaces in the lounge and dining room, as well as in two of the bedrooms; wooden floors; high ceilings; stone walls; and a large 96 square metre wrap around verandah facing into the garden.

This grand old lady will also receive all the contemporary touches that buyers are looking for in a modern-day home, and when completed promises to showcase the best of old and new in terms of design and architecture.

The four new homes that Parry Road will boast once complete will all be double-storey, featuring 3 bedrooms and 2,5 bathrooms. These houses will offer luxury, contemporary finishes whilst being sympathetic to the style of the original Victorian house on the property. Buyers can look forward to high ceilings with exposed beams, wooden floors, fireplaces, stone coloured walls, shutters, pergolas and verandahs for outdoor entertaining with stunning mountain views.

Added to this will be state-of-the-art security, secure off-road parking, garages, solar panels, luxury kitchens with Smeg appliances and bathrooms with Hansgrohe sanitary-ware. The development is also pet friendly.

Prices for the new builds at Parry Road start at R4,495.000 and range up to R5,500.000 Incl. VAT with no transfer duty. The original Victorian house is priced at R5,950.000 Incl VAT with no transfer duty.

"We are very excited to be working with Linear Developments to bring this new development to market. Linear need to be commended on their vision and foresight with this project," says Alexa Horne, MD of Dogon Group Properties. "Parry Road is truly unique in its design concept and ethos of preservation, and the location is exceptional - nestled in a leafy and established area of Claremont, within close proximity to Cape Town's city centre, the airport, leading Southern Suburbs schools, sporting and medical facilities, parks, shops, restaurants and more - this node in Claremont is the perfect home for young professionals and families alike."

Linear Developments are a boutique, family run property development company with a mission to rejuvenate certain areas of Cape Town while still respecting the architecture and heritage of the areas. Previous developments completed by Linear include Stellenberg Avenue, Sillwood Road, Queen Victoria, Purley Street, Tasman Road and the recently completed St Andrews.

According to Dogon, the expected completion date for the Parry Road Development is the 1st of September 2020, dependent on sales.
