A Closer look at Platinum Manor Estate and Platinum Heights

Category Property News

The high demand for sectional-title properties and estates has led to the South African property market completely transitioning. No longer are traditional freestanding homes as relevant as they were in the past, instead, homebuyers and tenants are demanding more security, affordability and lock-up-and-go convenience. And the solution to this? Undoubtedly estate homes and sectional-titles.

Every year, this market expands, diversifying its offerings and appealing to a wider number of buyers and tenants. As new developments flourish, there is more choice than ever before, and developers are finding new ways to create bigger and better residential precincts complete with more features and onsite amenities.

A great example of a precinct that ticks all the right boxes for buyers and tenants, and showcases the modern requirements of the market is Platinum Manor Estate and Platinum Heights. Consisting of secure freestanding homes and apartments, it is set in a clean and green landscape in the suburb of Akasia, Pretoria North.

It is owned by Chartwell Group, an investment company dedicated to purchasing premium homes in secure and well-designed residential estates. Platinum Manor Estate and Platinum Heights fit perfectly into Chartwell Group's investment model, where only the best homes with a high appeal are included in their portfolio.

Platinum Manor Estate

The estate section of the precinct is comprised of spacious freestanding homes with well-manicured private gardens, perfect for children to play, family get-togethers and simply enjoying the view of sunrises or starry nights. These homes are all double storey and consist of two or three bedrooms with a loft, and two or three bathrooms. While the unit sizes range from 100sqm and 130sqm to 140sqm. Each home boasts highly desired features such as a built-in kitchen with a granite top, fully tiled throughout, and essential security fixtures inclusive of burglar bars on all open sections and security gates. And conveniently, there is a choice of single or double garages per home.

According to real estate agents at CSi Property Group, they are experiencing high rental activity among tenants, especially professionals, couples and families who are snapping-up freestanding homes here as it ideally meets their property requirements, and most importantly, it meets their budget. In fact, tenants can easily secure a two-bedroom house for R5,450pm, a three-bedroom house for R8,500pm or a four-bedroom house for R9,000pm.

Platinum Heights

Platinum Heights, on the other hand, forms the apartment (sectional-title) node of the precinct where residents benefit from a children's play area, 24hr security and ample visitors parking. Similarly to Platinum Manor Estate, the apartments are fully tiled, the kitchen has built-in cupboards and a granite top, and it is protected by burglar bars and security gates. Residents can choose from two available unit sizes - 45sqm and 53sqm - and each unit consist of two bedrooms and one bathroom. Furthermore, the apartments on the ground floor have verandas and the first floor boasts balconies.

Because of the modest size of the apartments here, agents say it predominantly attracts tenants who live alone or couples who are starting out their lives together. Rentals start from as little as R4,950pm.

Both Platinum Manor Estate and Platinum Heights are secured by an electric fence on the parameters, armed response, guards on duty at the gates and CCTV cameras. More than this, the apartments and homes benefit from cost and energy saving measures including solar geysers, and prepaid water and electricity

Amenities on the Doorstep

Like all modern residential estates and sectional-titles, developers primarily construct these close to city centres, transport hubs and commercial nodes so residents have easy access to a selection of amenities on their doorstep and can travel to various key locations using private and public modes of transport. Platinum Manor Estate and Platinum Heights is a convenient 10-minute drive from the Tshwane University of Technology, and 15 minutes from Centurion and Pretoria CBD. While, Akasia Hospital and Wonderpark Mall lie 2km and 5km away, respectively.
