The Aster

“We adapted our original design to bring something unique to market in the form of garden apartments in the City Bowl, offering purchasers a new apartment with the benefit of escaping into a private landscaped garden” commented David Sedgwick, Horizon Capital Residential Managing Director.

The Aster is a boutique block that offers twenty-one unique apartments, including four apartments which each have access to a private and beautifully landscaped garden area. The gardens range from 22m2 to 80m2 and purchasers can select a jacuzzi-upgrade pack for their outside space as the gardens are exceptionally large.

Two of the garden apartments also incorporate a 4.5 metre high ceiling over the living area, creating a luxurious feeling of space and airiness.

These apartments are ideal for those seeking the excitement and convenience of urban living, but also wanting the privacy and tranquillity that can be difficult to find in the City Bowl. The garden apartments are also particularly attractive to those with pets.

The interior of the apartments offers a sophisticated design incorporating a darker colour palette with modern-industrial elements. These include darker aluminium borders accenting the shower, mirrors and sliding doors. Purchasers are able to customise their units, with a variety of options to choose from including joinery colour, counter-tops, flooring as well as a number of integrated appliance options. Natural light to the interior has been maximised by designing each apartment with floor-to-ceiling glass and aluminium sliding doors. Horizon Capital Residential has placed emphasis on communal space, which allows residents to soak in the City, Mountain views and sunsets from the communal pool deck and braai area.

Situated in Firdale Avenue in Oranjezicht, the Aster, is conveniently located in one of Cape Town’s most sought-after City Bowl neighbourhoods. All you need is just down the road: a myriad of boutique shops, restaurants, bars and cafés along Kloof Street; the excellent public transport of the City Bowl; the beautiful beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay; the green foothills of Table Mountain; and the charming parks and rich heritage of leafy Oranjezicht. The peaceful, family-orientated neighbourhood has views overlooking some of Cape Town’s most iconic sites: Cape Town CBD, Signal Hill, Lion’s Head and Table Mountain.

Sedgwick says, “The Aster maintains our responsible approach to development and echoes our shared belief in conscious living. Residents can enjoy the benefits of sustainable features like solar water heating, water-efficient fittings and low-energy LED lighting. The four-storey building offers lock-up-and-go convenience with secure basement parking, CCTV, electric fencing and access control.”

The Aster is priced from R2.495 million (including VAT) and as it is a new development, no transfer duty will be payable on transfer. The Aster is set to break ground in the 3rd quarter of 2019 with completion set for the end of 2020. For investors wishing to let their apartments on a short-term basis, a fully managed offering is also available at very attractive yields.
