Mind-blowing and breathtaking are words that come to mind when describing Botmaskop Estate – a development that will take living in Africa to new heights. Literally. At 390m above sea level (the highest perch up to now approved in the Western Cape) you will have the world at your feet, with unsurpassed views aligned to an intimate accord with nature.
The Botmaskop development is embraced by a Unesco World Heritage Nature Reserve, and yet this exquisite eyrie, with a lifestyle redolent of Provence, is close to modern amenities and cultural highlights. You are only 30 to 45 minutes from the delights of Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch, and the convenience of Cape Town International Airport, on a road carrying only light traffic. In this stylish neighbourhood your nearest neighbours are Delaire Graff Wine Estate and Tokara, which sets the tone for the area. In line with the latest approaches, the curated architectural and landscape designs of Botmaskop focus on accentuating the natural surroundings and on seamlessly blending indoor spaces with the magnificent outdoors. Nature is beckoning wherever you turn, with hiking, cycling and running trails leading through forested valleys and past natural waterfalls. A limited footprint of only 67 stands in the entire 31-ha estate minimises the impact on nature and ensures energising living spaces. Security is a priority for the developers and a monitored gatehouse and state-of-the-art security measures ensure privacy and peace of mind.
A visionary development
The founding partners of the developer, Staytus Collection, Dr Werner Roux and Handré Basson, collectively have over 50 years of experience in commercial, residential and industrial developments. Their long track record attests to high-profile and successful developments across South Africa, and include several estates in Stellenbosch as well as The Lagoon Bay in George and Harbourview in Hermanus.
Of Werner and Handré it can be said with conviction: “Vision is the art to see what is invisible to others.” It was an audacious vision that led them to develop the Botmaskop Estate – far above the daily grind, but with excellent access to Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard blue flag beaches, Table Mountain, and the famous V&A Waterfront. Staytus Collection is focused on unlocking the fullest potential of their properties. In line with the vision of Staytus, the Botmaskop Estate has been developed into the epitome of the Provençal lifestyle. Botmaskop is arranged like a petite village in Provence, with each villa served by a carefully tended pathway. Nature is the only guiding force and Botmaskop, with its limited footprint, has been designed to minimise the environmental impact while promoting the biodiversity within its extraordinary ecosystem.
The very best professionals have been identified and contracted to add the necessary flair and skills to the world-class lifestyle and experience at Botmaskop. Their impressive contribution is already visible in the construction of the roads, infrastructure, entrance gate and clubhouse (complete with deli, gym and pool).
The architecture will be strictly controlled by a form-based urban design code, developed by professional registered architects.
The estate represents a phenomenal investment in real estate that is not only in harmony with nature, but also safe and secure. Security and privacy are guaranteed, thanks to the estate’s location within the Botmaskop Nature Reserve and are further augmented by the double fencing and security entrances to the estate and the surrounding nature reserve.
The Staytus Collection founders invite you to come and live, play, walk, hike and cycle in the midst of your own estate and the larger Botmaskop Nature Reserve – “a truly unique and pristine opportunity!”
Welcome to the life above!
