The Development

A Rock Solid Investment

KEY POINTS

  • La Roche is developed on 13,1 hectares, subdivided into 107 single residential erven ranging between 300sqm and 585sqm in size with an average of 370sqm;
  • Low-density of 8 erven per hectare with ample allowance for private space;
  • Breath-taking views over the Simonsberg and Botmanskop mountains;
  • Moderate south to north slope with majority of future homes north-facing;
  • Gated village with state of the art security (including infrared camera surveillance and 24hr monitoring);
  • Nearly 6 ha of private open space with a Conrad “The Caveman” Stoltz designed mountain-bike and walking trail;
  • Only minutes away from neighbourhood shopping convenience;
  • Architectural guidelines have been carefully developed to control design and building operations and complement the traditional Cape vernacular style typical of the Stellenbosch area as well as to facilitate the design on the created platforms;
  • Selling prices for erven to range between R960 000 and R1 730 000

Security

La Roche is secured by a multi-faceted security system: the aesthetically pleasing perimeter fence has integrated anti-dig barriers, zoned electrified fencing and a complete fibre optic communications backbone. A modern CCTV system with both infra-red optical illumination as well as night vision thermal cameras ensures that the on-site guarding and off-site monitoring backup are well informed of activities around the estate. The modern gatehouse is designed to facilitate easy access control for residents and service providers and will house security guards on a permanent basis.

Home Owners’ Association (HOA)

All home owners will belong to the La Roche HOA. The primary objective of the HOA is to manage the joint interests of the members; to collect monthly levies and to oversee any costs relating to the maintenance and management of communal property.

Levies

Home owners will be liable for the payment of monthly levies. The levies are used to finance, amongst other things: security; refuse removal; maintenance and insurance of common property; managing agent’s fees; audit costs; and the maintenance and irrigation of open spaces. A new borehole has been established on site and will be used to irrigate the open space at a significantly reduced cost.

A levy stabilisation fund will be established and financed by a one percent sales levy on the purchase price of all future resales. The monthly levy until February 2020 is R 1250.
