“Burgundy Estate is just a great place where families can grow together,” says Miguel Rodrigues, Director at Rabie. “You have something for everyone here. Ample space to run, walk, cycle, and pocket parks for children of all ages. It also has three schools which cater for babies to grade 12s, and parents can walk children to school and skip traffic. What a plus!”

“It’s a quiet suburbia that’s incredibly convenient. It’s just the perfect place to be yourself and enjoy a good life.”

With Rabie’s involvement since 2015, Burgundy Estate has become an increasingly popular precinct with people looking for a lifestyle that offers tranquility and convenience.  Since getting involved as a joint venture partner with Nedbank six years ago, Rabie has sold over 1 200 homes totalling more than R1,4-billion.  By adding well-designed, beautifully landscaped secure complexes in the precinct, the essence of the suburb has been transformed into an established and well-maintained living and breathing space for all ages.

Tino Jeketera, project manager and resident since 2017, talks about this tranquility, “If you’re a young professional, you work in a busy city and you just want to come back home and relax.  It’s very quiet here. You are looking for peace after a long day, and you get it here.”

Rabie has thus far completed eight gated developments, which includes two complexes that are for rentals only, which is managed through its partnership with Invitation Homes.

“The Burgundy Estate lifestyle is popular with all ages,” explains Rodrigues. “With Durbanville’s wine route just around the corner and easy access to highways and shopping, this quiet suburbia is close to everything, yet sufficiently removed from the hustle and bustle.”

]Three Rabie projects are currently under construction: Quinta Estate which is a nine-block apartment development, Junixe which offers free standing houses and Oasis Life, Rabie’s second retirement estate after its ground-breaking first in Clara Anna Fontein, Durbanville.  All of these are secure, gated complexes with ample green space.

Quinta Estate

With its first phase under construction and 80% sold out, the second phase of Quinta Estate was released on 5 March 2022.  Launched in October 2021, this secure complex in Burgundy Estate is sold off plan, with first hand-overs to new owners scheduled from end September 2022.

Purchasers can invest in Phase two of Quinta Estate from R995 00 and can acquire a one-bedroom ground floor garden apartment from R1,55m.  A two-bedroom, two-bathroom ground floor apartment in Phase two starts at R1,45m.

“Current construction includes the gate house and ancillary buildings, with the show block and furnished show apartment being fast tracked for July,” explains Rodrigues.

Benefits of buying in Quinta Estate include:

  • Gated complex with smart access control
  • Contactless access for residents and secure visitor access system
  • Secure private and visitor parking within the complex
  • Perimeter CCTV cameras and electric fencing
  • Ample green open spaces and play areas
  • Solar panels to power elements in the geysers
  • Smart upgrades available (at an additional cost)
  • High speed fibre
  • 24hr Laundry room
  • Meeting and working venue
  • Pool and braai facilities


The first phase of Junixe was launched in November 2021, which consisted of 26 free standing houses and the second phase, released in March 2022, of a further 25 homes. These two phases make up half of this secure, gated complex scheme, which, on completion, will consist of 96 single level houses with exclusive gardens.

“Junixe is ideal for apartment dwellers who need more space and a garden, families moving from other provinces to Cape Town, or those wanting to scale down,” says Rodrigues.  “We are seeing interest on all the house types, from small to large, which shows us that Junixe caters for a diversity of purchasers.”

The development is bordered by Pinot Blanc Road and Carmine drive and includes large green open space within its gated and walled community. Purchasers can choose between four house types, priced from R1.94m. Estimated completion for phase one is April 2023.

Construction will commence end July 2022, with the showhouse being fast tracked as first phase of the project.

Purchasers can expect the following at Junixe:

  • All houses have garages and private gardens
  • Smart access control
  • Solar PV for heating
  • Electric fencing
  • Fibre-to-the-home
  • CCTV monitored access control
  • Choices on finishes from the architect’s palette
  • Bosch appliances (oven, hob, extractor)
  • Granite kitchen tops
  • Ample green open spaces within the complex

Burgundy Estate is the ideal multi-generational walled precinct if you’re looking for adding balance to your life.  It has something for everyone. Talking about the lifestyle of the precinct, Dean Smith, Suidooster actor, and resident since 2017 says, “I will definitely recommend Burgundy Estate.  You have that homely feeling, and you feel safe.  It’s also that balance between being close enough to the buzz and close enough to complete silence. And you can jump between the two as it suits you.”

Gantane Kusch, fellow Suidooster actor and resident since 2015 adds to this, “What I enjoy most about staying in Burgundy is the calm.  I love how it’s big enough for you to have your own space and privacy, yet small enough for you to be part of a community.”

With Table Mountain views, Burgundy Estate is ideally located on the border of the Durbanville wine route, a few kilometres from pristine beaches, and a short drive to Cape Town CBD.

“When people think estate, they think it is secured, it is a gated community, there is an entrance point and there’s an exit point. There is one way in and one way out., “says Kusch.  “That is the case with the complexes here.  So yes, I do feel safe. Driving within Burgundy, even when it’s late at night, I still feel safe.”
