WYTHAM Estate is a new and exciting development that is situated on 1.2 hectares in the most desirable pocket of Kenilworth in Cape Town. It was launched late last year and is the first stage of a senior living solution in a blue chip location in the city.

This is key for many people looking to downsize while remaining in the area they have called home for many years, says Gus van der Spek, chief executive of AVIEW Properties.

Wytham Estate is the flagship development of Aview.
Despite various lockdown setbacks and a constrained economy, the estate is set to reach

R100 million in sales over a relatively short period. This is, in part, due to its location which is one of its biggest selling points.

“Wytham is close to so many amenities our clients have been using for years, so there is no need to build a golf course, bowling greens or tennis courts when Kelvin Grove and Royal Cape are literally a few minutes away.

“With nothing of this quality available locally until now, Wytham has attracted the attention of people who have for many years understood the benefits of living in the area.”

Cape Town’s southern suburbs offer a great quality of life, with fantastic outdoor attractions like Kirstenbosch botanical gardens and the Arderne gardens in Claremont, with Constantia greenbelts a short drive away. Newlands cricket grounds, Cavendish Square and the many restaurants and amenities nearby add to the strength of the value proposition.

“Therefore, when adding the final layer of an on-site gym, wellness centre, internet cafe, and restaurant, one has the perfect mix of facilities in a world-class neighbourhood,” says Van der Spek. The estate has a meticulous focus on security, with Wytham in the rare position of being

almost completely surrounded by other properties. With only a 10m-wide connection to a secure access road, the estate is mostly hidden away and few people know it exists. It has 24/7 security guards and hi-tech CCTV security, making it something of a fortress.

Wytham Estate boasts an on-site centre focused on providing primary health care and managed home-based care to residents. This service will be backed up through a Call4Care emergency system linked to the nearby Kingsbury Hospital and doctor’s rooms.

Van der Spek says location is not only crucial when considering your needs today but, more essentially, what those needs will be in 10 years.

Being near family and friends is critical when choosing a new home and the Kenilworth location, for many people, means being near their friends and families, which makes popping
in for tea or going to grandchildren’s sports days relatively easy. As distances become more onerous with age, being close to the action will offer an advantage. Wytham Estate is positioned as a “best of both worlds” solution.

“Ultimately though, our clients are front and centre of our offering. It’s obvious that Wytham Estate is a beautiful collection of buildings and grounds in an impeccable location, but the heart and soul of any estate is always its inhabitants.

“From day one we have researched, then listened, and then responded to the feedback
from our clients – this has been an instrumental process in defining who we are and what we
are about. We have met some amazing people so far and we are really excited to be taking this journey further and staying involved with the estate for many years to come,” Van der Spek says.

Wytham Estate has show days every Wednesday between 2pm and 5pm. To make a reservation for a private tour of the property, email
