Launched in August 2014, Sitari Country Estate in the Helderberg basin outside Somerset West is one of the Cape’s most exclusive lifestyle estates. This internationally recognised R4bn mega-project offers a contemporary country lifestyle. Sitari Country Estate has become a sought-after suburb in its own right with a host of development opportunities and amenities, including residential and retirement housing, a school and nursery, a shopping centre, parks, kids’ play areas and corporate offices. Woven among the homes are green open spaces, herb gardens, orchards and ponds. Children can run free safely and parents can enjoy walks along the scenic cycle and pedestrian route through the 192ha estate. The reinstatement of Sitari’s Klein Zeekoevlei Wetland – the second largest wetland in the Helderberg – will also bring a unique element of natural serenity to residents’ doorsteps. The Amdec Group, SA’s leading developer of new urban lifestyle properties, recently acquired the multi-award-winning Sitari Country Estate. This forms part of the group’s strategy to strengthen its portfolio in the region and represents an exciting opportunity to leverage more than three decades’ experience in the development of iconic mixed-use precincts, secure lifestyle estates, inclusive housing communities and retirement villages.
A consistently important aspect of a lifestyle estate is that of safety, and Sitari provides a security system of the highest standards 24/7, 365 days of the year. On-site security is monitored via the main gatehouse and includes biometric readers and staffed access control. Each junction inside the estate has four-way cameras connected to the control room. Moreover, perimeter fencing features under-dig protection, serrated strips, anti-cutting and anti-climb measures, with electrics on top as well as fibre optic technology with heat-sensitive triggers.
MORE THAN AN ESTATE
Children’s education is another significant element of living in a first-rate estate like Sitari. So it comes as no surprise that Curro, the fastest-growing independent school brand in SA, provides nurturing and schooling from the age of three months to Grade 12 within the estate. As for convenient access to everyday necessities, Sitari Village Mall is located directly across from the estate. This lifestyle shopping centre includes a flagship Checkers store alongside other well-known brands like Woolworths Food and Vida e Caffè. Further plans include an on-site gym, a coffee shop and a clubhouse with a café and deli, a kids’ play zone and a swimming pool.
