Oasis Life Burgundy Estate in Milnerton, Cape Town, launches phase two of their secure retirement estate for the youthful senior
Oasis Life Burgundy Estate in Milnerton, Cape Town, opened its doors in July 2021 welcoming its first residents to a secure gated estate with a beautiful clubhouse. Since then, this retirement estate has grown to more than 30 residents who are enjoying the Oasis Life lifestyle, with a strong sense of community already established. Just 20 minutes from Cape Town’s CBD, on the foothills of Durbanville’s scenic hills, Burgundy Estate borders the vineyards of the historic De Grendel wine farm. Oasis Life, a 10ha secure retirement estate, is located within the greater 180ha Burgundy Estate, a multigenerational precinct with a variety of secure complexes, schools, restaurants and convenient shopping centres.
OUT AND ABOUT
Residents at Oasis Life are embracing a new way of life. In addition to taking part in several events arranged in the clubhouse, such as painting, ceramic painting, braais, Sunday carveries and afternoons filled with social activities, the residents have started their own walking club. The club members, donning hats and walking sticks, can often be seen together exploring the greater Burgundy Estate via the long stretches of walking paths. “As the number of residents increased, our clubhouse offering has expanded accordingly and we’re now providing meals throughout the day in the restaurant (excluding dinner), take-away frozen meals, as well as special catered events, such as afternoon braais and a Sunday carvery,” says Neil Barry, operations manager at Oasis Life.
“Our residents have embraced the clubhouse as their own and we’re pleased to see them visiting for breakfast and afternoon tea or to meet up with new and old friends.” In addition to the clubhouse offerings, primary health care at the estate consists of a registered nurse on duty during office hours – Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm – and an enrolled nursing assistant to attend to emergencies after hours, during weekends and on public holidays. Each home has also been fitted with a call4care emergency system through which residents can call a 24/7 emergency call centre via a button on the call4care phone, should they be unable to make a phone call.
With only four houses of the first phase left for sale, the second phase of the estate will be launched on the weekend of October 30 and 31. “As we engage with potential purchasers, we listen to the feedback and suggestions, and we try to remain nimble and adapt our future phases accordingly,” says Miguel Rodrigues, Director at Rabie. “In phase two, we will be introducing cottages, smaller in size than our standalone houses, but still with access to exclusive use gardens. A grouping of cottages will consist of four attached, divided by a green pathway from two attached cottages. Our cottages are already proving popular, with a few pre-launch reserves in place.” All cottages in phase two have two bedrooms and one bathroom.
Rodrigues explains that the design of the new apartment blocks has been carefully considered and improved on. “Phase two will include two blocks of low-rise apartments that flow out to a large communal garden. The ground floor apartments will enjoy access to exclusive garden patios and each apartment above will have a Juliet balcony. We have changed the internal design of the apartments, and we believe that the new layouts optimise light and the use of space.” Phase two is made up of 15 two-bedroom houses priced from R1.88m, 20 two-bedroom cottages from R1.6m and 28 apartments from R1.09m.
Most of the apartments have one bedroom and one bathroom with a limited number of two-bedroom apartments available. Residents can also look forward to the next phase of the Lifestyle Centre, which will include an indoor swimming pool and recreational area, estimated for completion at the end of 2022. Oasis Life Burgundy Estate is being developed in phases, with an eventual 160 houses and 380 apartments planned on completion. Interested parties can schedule an exclusive appointment over the launch weekend to enjoy a refreshment and a tour through the estate. The tour includes a walk through two furnished apartments and a furnished show house.
