Rare property gems – the rising popularity of boutique developments

boutique developments

There is a growing trend in the property world, and it is changing the face of new developments in Cape Town. Smaller, unique developments that have character and status are what property buyers are after. Developers have cottoned onto this trend and are building more boutique developments, offering homes with flair, character and original touches.

Alexa Horne, MD of Dogon Group Properties, says that developers are now catering to those who are after beautiful, tasteful properties in prime locations – homes with individual flair that are considered more prestigious, not to mention holding better resale values.

“Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard and Southern Suburbs have seen an increasing number of boutique developments launched, and snapped up by receptive buyers. A recently announced boutique residential estate in Higgovale featuring only two ultra-prestigious homes, is a prime example of how developers are keeping up with the trend toward exceptional design in prime locations,” says Horne.

The Gemini, situated at 47 Glen Crescent and framed by the sweeping backdrop of Table Mountain, offers only two homes – of exceptional proportions. Twin four-storey mega-residences of 883sqm and 984sqm respectively. Unit 1, on the market for R26 950 million, is a four-bedroom home boasting features such as a private lift, bar and wine cellar, swimming pool, plant room, garden and terrace, kitchen yard, access-controlled parking for multiple vehicles, and more.

Unit 2, on the market for R28.950 million, mirrors Unit 1, but on a larger scale. Both homes, designed by Gerd Weideman Architects, have on-trend sustainable design elements of reclaimed timber, stone, and glass. Packed stone external finishes, timber pergolas, laser cut facade screens, feature staircase, glass balustrades, and cobble driveway delivers on buyers’ demand for character and the unique design and location of this development, nestled in the prestigious suburb of Higgovale, hovering above the City Bowl, certainly makes this a rare find. Higgovale is only moments away from Kloof Street and its multitude of bistros, boutiques, and quirky shops. Table Mountain National Park is quite literally on your doorstep giving convenient access to the great outdoors.

“A high price tag alone does not put a property in the luxury category,” says Horne. “It has to be unique and exclusive, in a trophy address, and The Gemini certainly meets these requirements. We anticipate seeing an ongoing demand for such boutique developments from both local and international clients, and as such an ongoing response from developers who enlist the services of top architects and designers to produce premium exclusive properties more akin to built art, than mere buildings.”
