Oasis Life Clara Anna Fontein launches second phase
With 50 residents nestled in and living their best lives, Oasis Life Clara Anna Fontein’s Phase One is complete, which includes the heart and soul of the senior’s estate – its own Clubhouse.
With an Open Day on 17 April, Phase Two in this beautiful setting was officially introduced. In addition to a tour of the new Clubhouse and its variety of facilities, which includes a primary healthcare suite, those attending the Open Day was able to view a selection of fully furnished show houses situated within the estate.
“On our Open Day, visitors could experience the estate first-hand – the layers of security, wide open spaces, the tranquility of life at the picturesque Clara Anna Fontein and they can walk through Oasis Life’s landscaped avenues and age-tailored showhouses.” says Mariska Auret, Director at Rabie.
“Without compromising on style and contemporary architecture, we carefully design our Oasis Life homes to ensure that every lay-out is practical and smart. We also take great care to future proof every age-tailored retirement home by making it a safe and comfortable haven for its occupants. As one gets older, the ease of mobility and comfortable living become key considerations for your lifestyle and the quality thereof. Age-tailoring is sensitively incorporated through items such as swivel taps for easy opening and closing, wheelchair and ease of mobility ready, toilet seats which are higher for ease of standing up and easy to open automated garage doors. These are just some of the items we consider and incorporate.”
Other added benefits of the homes are that they are energy efficient, which reduces monthly utility costs, the orientation of the homes is such to maximise sunlight for warmer interiors, open plan designs give flexibility of furniture placement and fibre connectivity ensures that you can keep up with your grandchildren and stream all your favourite movies and series.

“In an effort to allow more natural light, we have changed the orientation of the braai room, giving the main bedroom direct access to the garden. Furthermore, the braai room has been redesigned as a lightweight, elegant steel framed structure.”
Auret advises that the construction of Phase Two will be approached in two sections. “The first section will consist of type 3, 4 and 5 houses where we have commenced construction on what we call a “buffer zone” which minimises disruption to our residents who already live in Phase One. This first section of Phase Two is estimated to welcome its first occupants by July 2022, whereafter the second section will commence.”
Phase Two starts at R3,795m, being a type 3 house with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a patio and single garage. The largest home, a type 5 at R5,095m, has a total size of 227m², which includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms with one being an en-suite with a walk-in closet, an office or third bedroom, double garage, braai room and patio.
Move-in ready one and two bedroom houses are available from R2.35m.
