Surrounded by the scenic winelands of the Western Cape's historic Paarl and Franschhoek Valley, framed by the majestic Drakenstein mountains and the famed Paarl Rock, lies an estate beyond comparison. Boschenmeer Golf and Country Estate. With a relaxed atmosphere and a tranquil riverside setting, combined with luxury, privacy and security, creates an estate that undisputedly has it all.
The vision for Boschenmeer Golf and Country Estate was to design a residential area on a golf course, which enables residents to experience the tranquil openness, quiet and relaxation of the golf course on an everyday basis - whether they are golfers or not.
Virtually 90% of the residential properties are directly facing a part of the golf course, which offers breathtaking views across perfectly manicured lawns, and yet no fairway has houses on both sides. Homes are positioned to offer privacy and to best utilise the magnificent views of the Simonsberg and Franschhoek mountains.
Boschenmeer Golf and Country Estate is an eco-sensitive development and the developers have made a serious commitment to preserve the natural environment whilst creating a suitable environment for human residence and activity. The estate has many water features including a large lake with two islands and a bird sanctuary which is home to an abundance of bird life. Aquatic life is vibrant with Carp and tadpoles providing nutrition to the growing bird population, which includes more than 20 species of birds such as the Pied Kingfisher and the White Cattle Egret.
The estate boasts many old and well-established trees, and a thousand indigenous trees and shrubs were furthermore planted at Boschenmeer Golf and Country Estate, many bearing berries and seeds to attract even more bird species to the area.
The Cape Vernacular architecture is based on the deeply rooted history of the region's Cape Dutch and Victorian architectural heritage, together with the Tuscan influences inherited from the Italian World War 1 Prisoners Of War who built Du Toitskloof Pass, who settled in the Paarl and Franschhoek valley. The combination of elements taken from these three styles has created a subtle, refreshing and timeless architecture that reflects the history and culture of this valley.
