Welgevonden Estate is situated on the northern fringe of the lovely Boland town of Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. Affectionately named Eikestad because of age old oak trees lining the streets, Stellenbosch is renowned for its historical heritage, its natural beauty, rolling vineyards and strong academic culture. Stellenbosch also offers some of the best returns on property investment in the country. Welgevonden Estate is no exception to this. The +/- 1000 full title properties within Welgevonden Estate is located on a predominantly north facing slope. The development offers spectacular views over the nearby Simonsberg mountains, surrounding vineyards and orchards.
Not only is Welgevonden Estate established, it also offers residents a multitude of activities to choose from in and around Cape Town and the Boland. With the golden beaches of Strand and Gordons Bay just 30 minutes away, Cape Town and all its attractions 45 minutes away and of course Stellenbosch itself offering you everything from lazily strolling through town to racing your mountain-bike through the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve, what more could one ask for?
Welgevonden Estate offers a secure, contained environment with strict access control in the way of electronic gate booms, CCTV cameras, touch sensor perimeter electric fencing and security staff patrolling the premises by foot and vehicle on a 24 hour basis. Narrow internal streets that widen into village squares focal points, reduces traffic speed and makes the estate a pedestrian friendly development where the motor vehicle does not dominate.
