Popular for its wide-open spaces, wine route and wholesome family-centred lifestyle, Cape Town’s Northern suburbs offers a wide variety of development opportunities.

Clara Anna Fontein | Durbanville

Rabie’s sought after Clara Anna Fontein Lifestyle Estate’s 128ha of peace, security and great natural beauty is set in the gently rolling hills above Durbanville, with spectacular views of the Overberg mountains.  It took 14 years to rezone the site and from the commencement of development in 2015, it has transformed into a fully-fledged multi-generational security and lifestyle estate, directly bordering a protected game reserve.

It’s made up of three types of homes: The Village with 126 townhouses, freestanding with a mix of single and double story homes; 344 plots with 160 houses currently built and occupied and 90 under construction and Oasis Life, 126 freestanding Life-right units with a clubhouse and primary healthcare facility. Public open space, which includes a dam and wildlife camped off area is 11ha.

Currently, about 270 families live on the estate, supported by a Reddam House School Campus.  The estate’s beautiful Lifestyle Centre is available for use and relaxation of all residents, includes pocket parks, Clubhouse, gym, swimming pool, squash and tennis courts, bar and deli, function venue and boma. The original farmhouse (heritage building) was seamlessly integrated with the modern Lifestyle Centre.

A 2400m² convenience shopping centre and a small collection of 10 houses will be completed by 2024.

Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs - full of promise
Wheatfields Estate | Groot Phesantekraal

Rabie Property Group and Trinity Projects launched Wheatfields Estate, a collection of distinctively designed homes, set in a secure gated estate, on 20 October 2021.

Wheatfields Estate is a dream realised. It was all set-in motion in 2015 when Rabie Property Group, Curro and Trinity Projects joined forces to acquire and develop a section of prime land on the Groot Phesantekraal farm in Durbanville.  The vision was to create a sustainable development framework plan, which would incorporate a residential estate centered around a secondary and tertiary education hub. The new suburb will be known as Groot Phesantekraal Estate and will also include a shopping mall, offices, retail, and further residential developments.

The transaction for a parcel of land on the farm was concluded with the landowner, Curro, Rabie and Trinity Projects in 2018, whereafter the rezoning amendment process commenced.  The rights were finally approved mid-2020, and the detailed planning could commence.

Today, Curro Durbanville High School is already thriving.  The doors of the new state of the art campus opened in January 2022, after relocating from their Sonstraal location.

Wheatfields Estate is a 5,4ha security estate, which ultimately will consist of 152 designer homes. The developers have a phased marketing and construction approach.

Colin Green, Director Rabie, explains that the symbiotic relationship between Wheatfields Estate and Curro is ideal.  “Wheatfields Estate, together with Curro and Stadio, will be the catalysts of a new and exciting mini suburb in Durbanville.  With wide open spaces, secure living adjacent to a green belt and access to world-class education and facilities, this hub is not only well-suited for families, but for anyone who enjoys the space and sense of community that Durbanville offers.”

The civil work is complete, and the site was handed over to the main contractor Big Ben Construction on 5 May.  To date, sales worth R80m have been concluded and the aim is to hand over 25 houses by the ends of 2022.

“We have received substantial interest in Cape Gate Crescent from the outset,” says Rodrigues. “With its ideal location and security features, the complex offers a safe, modern environment in a great location.  The eight townhouses were completed first and were taken up in no time.  We are delighted with its uptake and the final product presents beautifully.”
