Luxury apartment living has come to Hillcrest and the recently launched Belgravia at Langford Country Estate offers the best of all worlds – lock-up-and-go convenience within a perfect country setting.

“Up until now, upmarket apartment living in Durban has been confined to high rises and large complexes on the coast or multi-use developments within urban environments such as the Berea, Morningside, Umhlanga and Ballito. This is an exciting alternative for independent singles and couples who are either looking for an upmarket first home or those wishing to downsize from a large family home,” explains Paul Mulder, recently appointed Development Manager of Inframax Holdings in KwaZulu-Natal.

Belgravia at Langford Country Estate is positioned on an elevated site with beautiful views of the country surrounds. It comprises 20 luxury apartments within five low rise buildings. Each two storey building has just two luxury apartments per floor.

North facing with uninterrupted views, each apartment has three bedrooms and two bathrooms with elevator access, basement parking and dedicated storerooms.

Each apartment has an open plan living area with fully fitted kitchen that comes complete with caesar stone tops and gas hobs and a separate scullery. Home comforts include a cosy gas fireplace and built-in braai.

For busy professionals, avid travellers or those simply wishing to take a break from mowing or painting, Belgravia at Langford Country Estate promises low maintenance and perfect peace of mind thanks to top notch 24 hour security.

“Security is one of the primary considerations when purchasing a home. The market therefore places a premium on well designed, secure gated estates developed in sought-after locations. Langford Country Estate is one of these and has a tried and tested comprehensive security solution,” says Mulder.

He stresses that another deciding factor is location. 

Belgravia is set within the sought after Langford Country Estate which is known for its  country setting and beautiful views. The apartments have been designed to blend with the contemporary Georgian design theme throughout the estate.

Belgravia residents will have access to all the existing estate amenities which include a communal swimming pool, sports fields and tennis courts.   

“From an investment and value point of view, the fact that the vast majority of homes here are owner occupied and that re-sales are far lower than in other comparable gated communities speaks for itself,” he says.

Hillcrest is a great suburb to live in, Mulder adds.  Once a sleepy village surrounded by sugar farms and equestrian estates, it has not lost its charm but has certainly added the very best upmarket amenities including the very best shopping and finest restaurants, some of KwaZulu-Natal’s best schools and state of the art health care facilities such as the new Hillcrest private hospital.

At just 30km from Durban, Hillcrest is easily accessible from both the M13 and N3 highways and strategically situated on the main arterial route from Durban to Pietermaritzburg “With many businesses located in and relocating to the Upper Highway area, development of major logistics and business hubs in Hammarsdale and Cato Ridge having begun and decentralised offices becoming a growing trend, this is also an ideal location for businessmen and professionals.”

Purchasers can buy off plan. Because all town planning and building plan approvals are already in place, construction is imminent with occupation expected by the end of 2016.
