Surrounded by picturesque views and framed by the majestic Helderberg mountain range inSomerset West, Croydon Gardens Estate in the Cape Winelands offers family friendly secure living, close to schools, the highway, airport and shopping centres. The estate comprises 2 villages of 35 and 52 residential single-title units respectively. There is 7 architectural designs and 3 interior design finishes to choose from.
The architectural style of Croydon Gardens is largely informed by the historic typology and rural character of settlements in the Cape Winelands. The Cape Village vernacular has a characteristic typology which is used as the basis for the designs with the most striking characteristic to be employed in the design is the use of a façade that end at the top in a parapet and a moulded cornice directly below that. Houses are served by a small yard or garden while narrow passages served as alley ways separating houses and providing entrances to the back of houses.
The large park-like facilities and natural open spaces have been created with a secure sense of community in mind. These contemporary Cape Vernacular homes have been designed to maximise the surrounds, inviting the outdoors in.
