Situated in the coastal town of Langebaan is a new and exciting lifestyle estate. Officially launched at the beginning of this year, La Pinta Lifestyle Village presents a picturesque lifestyle that is an idyllic combination of convenient, coastal and luxury living.
Ivubu Property Development (Pty) Ltd, a Pretoria-based investment holding company, is behind the West Coast development and aims to bring a family estate the like of which has not yet been seen in the area. It comprises stands – already fully serviced – for 150 two- and three-bedroom turnkey homes, each designed to bring stylish and contemporary architecture to the region, in the most convenient setting and with a wide-ranging set of amenities for residents of all ages.
Whether owners are reaping the benefit of a permanent family residence, finding the ideal lock-up-and-go holiday home, or discovering a change of pace from city living, La Pinta Lifestyle Village is the perfect place to call home. Exceptional security includes camera-controlled access gates with turnstiles at both gates, making La Pinta’s offering very well suited to all age groups. La Pinta is centrally located within Langebaan, with quick and convenient access to Curro Langebaan, Laguna Mall with its new ultramodern Woolworths and Checkers (just opened), a medical centre and other major amenities close by, and direct access to the main road just 20km from Saldanha.
Children who reside at La Pinta have direct, on-foot access to the school, via a separate, camera-controlled turnstile gate. Other family-oriented attractions include a gazebo overlooking the outdoor gym and specially designed play areas for toddlers and children, as well as plenty of green spaces to walk, run and ride bicycles in the secured area of the estate.
A firm plus feature for many families in our modern world is fibre to the home. La Pinta estate has entered into an agreement with Comtel for the installation of fibre to the home, with various affordable uncapped options and telephone structures. Each home has an intercom phone that is in direct contact with the security gate to allow access for visitors or for emergencies.
“World-class digital communication is becoming essential in businesses and homes today. Comtel is very proud of our association with La Pinta and the comprehensive digital fibre-based communication system installed there. It’s all ready for you to move in and start connecting. No lengthy, costly, complex and frustrating installations. Our converged system includes internet, intercom, telephone, hotspots, security, access control and TV. La Pinta and Comtel are ready for you,” says Dave Couves, CEO of Comtel.
The host of modern features continues inside the homes too. Each home ranges in size from 121 to 244 square metres and features high-quality finishes to create a home that is luxurious and seamlessly integrated. Kitchens include Smeg appliances as well as engineered stone countertops, presented in two distinct moods, Coastal or Contemporary, and the spacious living areas are enhanced by stunning exposed trusses and LED lighting throughout. Each bathroom in the home also includes wall-hung Geberit toilets and Hans Grohe taps. There are also built-in braais and private gardens.
The architectural guidelines in La Pinta Lifestyle Village are entirely appropriate to the West Coast, especially the pitched roof, which is a prerequisite and outlined in the constitution of the local area. Even a centrally located DStv signal is utilised in the estate to prevent a dish-riddled environment, thus maintaining the classic West Coast appeal.
Purchasers can enjoy complete freedom of choice with a selection of 12 home design styles to choose from, ranging in price from R 1.4 million to R 2.9 million.
The turnkey, as opposed to the plot-and-plan model, is especially favoured as it allows full transparency, with no hidden extras, and is intended to give buyers peace of mind in that the price they see is the price they pay, with no risk during construction. Included in the turnkey model are all fees and costs as well as fibre to the home, intercom to the main gate, home irrigation, property landscaping and a paved driveway. Buyers select their choice of finishes presented, pay a 5% deposit to be held in trust, and deliver a guarantee payable at completion and transfer. With the turnkey option, financing has been made easier, and pre-approved bonds with all major financial institutions are available.
Levies at La Pinta remain pegged to CPI for the next three years, starting at R 715, on average. The body corporate and estate management are administered by Residentia Trust.
La Pinta’s robust security detail offers camera-controlled access gates and turnstiles at both the main and secondary (school) entrances. The security system also includes 24-hour manned security, patrols, a rapid response provider, electric perimeter fencing and cameras linked to a monitored security and reaction unit system, to further ensure peace of mind.
The first of four phases is available to the market. There are 37 units of which seven have been completed, including the show house and sales/marketing office. The next 12 plans await municipal approval before construction will continue. The developers anticipate completion of the project within three to four years on a phase-to-phase stage to have minimum impact on residents.
Visiting the La Pinta sales office and show house allows you to experience its stylish, warm, home feeling and understand what the estate is and aims to be about.
