Burgundy Estate Cape Town borders the vineyards of the historic De Grendel wine farm. In fact, the estate originally formed part of the farmlands where Sir David Graaff grazed herds of Friesland cattle and trained his beloved Arabian thoroughbreds!

This is the tranquil location for Rabie’s decidedly contemporary retirement village, Oasis Life Burgundy Estate.

Entrance to the village will be via a bridge that crosses Burgundy Brook and the green belt that borders the eastern side of the development. An impressive gatehouse, with a 24 hour security presence, will welcome visitors to the estate via a tree-lined ring road that finds its way to the impressive Lifestyle Centre.

Paved internal streets will provide access to the houses and apartments in a landscape of pocket parks and tree-lined pedestrian boulevards. The layout of the village is distinguished by short, diagonally orientated roads that create intimate and charming streetscapes.

A perimeter path for running and walking will wind its way through an extensive garden of water-wise fynbos, indigenous plants and trees with seated viewpoints at regular intervals. The planting of this garden will celebrate seasonal flower shows and encourage birdlife. A bird hide just beyond the Lifestyle Centre will allow residents to observe their avian neighbours.

All homes will be installed with fibre optic cabling for high-speed internet and DStv connectivity and the common areas will offer WiFi, enabling residents to get online from laptops, tablets and smartphones.
