Record sales on Val de Vie Estate over the past twelve months attest to a dynamic property market on South Africa’s top residential estate.

Resale transactions in excess of R885 million were concluded on Val de Vie Estate over the past twelve months, which is a 61% increase from the previous twelve months when 122 resale transactions amounted to property resales worth R549 million.

Developer sales over the past twelve months amounted to R338 million in value, resulting in over R1.2 billion in total sales for Val de Vie Estate.

The total value of the completed 1300 homes and apartments, plus the estate’s amenities and facilities, including the Pearl Valley Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, totals R15 billion with an average value per home in excess of R10 million.



“Under challenging circumstances, our success factors have been our strong and consistent brand, world-class security and an unrivaled lifestyle offering in one of the most beautiful places in South Africa,” remarked Ryk Neethling, Marketing Director and Shareholder of Val de Vie Estate.

Central to the success of this sought-after, luxury estate, is a diverse property portfolio offering. Developer stands, elegant lock-up-and-go apartments, family homes, retirement homes, Gentleman’s Estates and recently completed state of the art Polo Village Offices attract investors from across the globe.

Secure living is of paramount importance to property investors, and as one of the first estates in South Africa to implement biometric-access control measures, Val de Vie Estate’s deterrents bring absolute peace of mind to residents. The security measures in place are unobtrusive and strategically positioned, such as 100 intelligent analytical Bosch thermal cameras that shield the 11.2 kilometre perimeter.



917 ha of natural splendour and spacious surroundings offer true country-style living with an array of world class facilities that encourage an active, outdoor lifestyle. A new lifestyle centre, The Yard, will open in November and feature an Olympic sized outdoor pool designed by Myrtha, the first of its kind in South Africa, a 1000 m² gym and a new restaurant by Reuben Riffel, called Reuben’s and Co Cafè.

Val de Vie Estate Phase 2, excluding the Val de Vie Evergreen retirement facility, is 95% sold out and only a few opportunities to invest in the Estate remain.

South Africa’s largest retirement facility, Val de Vie Evergreen, is 70% sold out on Phase 1 and the first residents will move in mid-2019.

Stellenbosch is now only 15 minutes away from the new Berg River Gatehouse that connects the estate to the R45 Simondium Road, allowing for reduced travelling times because of faster access to the N1 highway.
