18 April 2018

At least thirty houses to be completed by the end of this year

Devmark Property Group’s brand new retirement village in Plettenberg Bay, The Plettenberg Manor, broke ground this week to start building the second phase of at least 30 houses before the end of this year.

The development will offer residents eight accommodation types ranging from apartments to three-bedroom exclusive homes designed in the Cape vernacular style, juxtaposing the Cape South Coast’s rural charm with sophisticated modern functionality and open plan living.

Says Hein Ehlers, CEO of Devmark Property Group:

“We’re absolutely thrilled with the development on the estate. The first residents are starting to move in and the Gatehouse and Entrance Road were completed end November last year.”

Erik Steyl, MD of Devmark Construction, adds:

“We’d like to wish the construction team in Plett all the best with the months of hard work ahead. The Plettenberg Manor is Devmark’s eighth retirement village in 28 years. We’re building other people’s future today!”

As part of the construction, the former Keurbooms River Hotel will be restored and refurbished to function as the estate’s clubhouse, offering residents and guests the best dining and leisure experience. Ehlers continues:

“The clubhouse will include a restaurant, coffee shop, ladies bar, beauty salon, a convenience store, assisted living suites as well as a healthcare centre including a 24 bed frail care centre. For the young at heart, the vitality wing of the clubhouse will offer numerous exciting options to stay fit and happily entertained with a fully equipped gym and swimming pool.”

Accommodation types include the Blue Crane, Grey Heron and Egret Luxury Homes, the Kingfisher and Sandpiper Cottages as well as apartments, selling between R1 450 million to R3 825 million. The newly launched Penguin and Cormorant Luxury Cottages offer prospective buyers an even wider choice with two bedroom and two bathroom units selling from R2 345 million.
Ehlers is very enthusiastic about the The Plettenberg Manor.

“Plettenberg Bay has been my second home for the past 38 years and I adore the area’s natural beauty. With its coastal location and excellent security, The Plettenberg Manor will offer residents direct access to a private beach, beautiful hiking trails, bird hides for birdwatchers, and bowling greens – all on the estate. A shuttle service will make getting around easy and convenient. Not only does this development promise to offer an excellent return on investment, but also the perfect lifestyle,” Ehlers concludes.
