Le Jardin

Le Jardin is a centrally located contemporary residential development comprising 40 sectional title apartments in three storeys, set above secure ground-level parking.

Priced from just R1,25 million to R1,9 million, these beautifully designed contemporary one and two bedroom apartments offer amazing value in a high-demand area.

Unlike any other development in the area, the building is designed to cater for today’s lifestyle demands, featuring:

  • An expansive entertainment deck with lap pool

  • All apartments have at least one secure parking bay; most have two

  • Lift access from the parking level to the residential floors

  • All apartments have terraces and most have built-in braais

  • Smartphone-operated access-control security system

  • Open-plan kitchens fitted with SMEG appliances

  • Extensive landscaping to create a uniquely green facade

  • Solar panels for discounted electrical supply

The unique U-shaped layout of the building creates space for the centrepiece of the design – the attractive entertainment deck and swimming pool on the second floor – while maximising the absolutely stunning mountains and river views from the private terraces of the apartments.

Six reasons why investors are pouring money into the capital of the Garden Route

Located roughly halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, George is the second biggest city in the Western Cape province. The city’s natural scenic appeal, stunning coastline and the famous Outeniqua Mountains make it an obvious choice as a destination for tourists and business people alike.

As a result, George has emerged as a significant regional economic hub and driver of growth in the entire Garden Route area. It continues to attract top financial and business services, contributing to the Cape’s growing services sector.

Here are six powerful reasons to consider a real estate investment in George right now:

1. Good Municipal Management
George is one of the best-run cities in South Africa. George Municipality applies sound financial planning and budgeting, clean governance, high levels of execution and a zero-rated approach to corruption in its financial and corporate management. It delivers excellent services to residents and offers highly efficient bulk services to the business community in sectors such as light industry, agro-processing, property development and financial services.
2. Great Quality of Life
According to a well-known Quality of Life Index, which assesses a number of factors that impact the lifestyle of a city’s residents, George offers the overall highest quality of life in the whole of South Africa! Numbeo’s research proves that with the highest safety rating, good climate, a relatively affordable cost of living, low traffic and low pollution levels, George is the place to be.
3. The Largest Economy on the Garden Route
George boasts the largest economy in the Garden Route, one of the lowest unemployment rates nationally, a diversely skilled population, a healthy measure of business confidence, and a mix of contemporary urban and attractive rural spaces. The city and its surrounds offer premium residential and business development opportunities for the astute investor.
4. A Thriving Tourist Mecca
George has a sophisticated infrastructure with banks, conference facilities, businesses and shopping centres including the Garden Route Mall and Eden Meander, transport and sporting facilities, yet retains its small-town atmosphere. The city is a major tourist centre, serving as the transport hub to the various coastal towns that see a surge of lucrative tourism revenue every year. And George has its own attractions too, including numerous world-class golf courses. The most well-known is Fancourt Golf Estate, which is often the host to high-profile golf tournaments.
5. A Growing Manufacturing Hub
George is a thriving manufacturing hub, with growing activity in the textiles, dairy and juice, furniture and timber products industries. Businesses are attracted by the range of state-of-the-art bulk services and business services the city has to offer. The next ten years will see new light industrial and commercial business hubs developing in the municipality.
6. Strong rental ROI and good capital growth potential
Perhaps the most pertinent reason for a buy-to-left investor looking for a blue-chip residential real estate investment in George is that the demand for high-quality accommodation in the centre of the city outstrips the supply. This will drive strong capital growth in years to come – a trend that has seen average property values in the city continue to rise year after year in recent times, despite the negative effects of Covid 19 on other parts of the country!
