Estate Features


new benchmark for residential rental developments

Luxurious

FONTIJN exudes style and beauty.

From premium finishes and open plan living areas to intelligently designed kitchens, every detail of FONTIJN has been carefully considered to create timeless style and elegance, while different apartment options cater for intergenerational living – people who respect each other’s space, but care about those around them.

Designed around three beautifully landscaped courtyards and with gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains, FONTIJN effortlessly mixes the bold glamour of the city with the enticing beauty of the countryside. Ground floor apartments have their own large garden areas and all upper level apartments have private balconies, perfect for enjoying the views.

The public park across the road will also become an outdoor haven, with plans for a children’s play area, an outdoor gym and a community garden.

 



FONTIJN’s developers are committed to developing and maintaining Hafele Public Open Space across in collaboration with the community. Phase 1 is under way and includes earthworks, the drilling and equipping of a borehole, irrigation and the seeding of the lawns. Developers of surrounding properties are also committing funds to the project.

Innovative

FONTIJN is built with the future in mind.

Our FONTIJN residents have streamlined access to services and technology, in a building that is future-proof. A fibre backbone has been built into the structure, with an open access system that allows for uncapped downloading at up to 50-megabyte line speed. Streaming services like Netflix and Showmax are replacing traditional viewing methods and FONTIJN residents are able to make the most of that.

Fontijn also has an 80 KVA generator that can power the lifts, exterior doors and gates, security system, fire alarm and stormwater pumps, as well as lighting in the basement, common area corridors and staircases in the event of load shedding. Energy saving LED lights throughout the building help to keep electricity usage to a minimum.

A state-of-the-art heat pump system provides hot water at lower costs than standard geysers and we’ve also chosen to install insulated pipes and a ring main that guarantees good water pressure.

A sophisticated grey water system harvests and treats shower water, feeding the toilets via a booster pump and reducing water bills for tenants, while the water meters, both cold and warm, and electricity meters are managed via mobile phone.

The building has been designed for zero water loss – all rain water is captured and used to irrigate the landscaping, with the giant tanks below the basement holding up to 118,000 liters of rainwater. In addition, the green spaces have been thoughtfully landscaped using only local plant species which require little irrigation.

Secure

FONTIJN allows you to enjoy life.

No other rental properties in the area offer the same level of quality, and community and security – it’s our commitment to safeguarding your lifestyle.

FONTIJN has state-of-the-art security that includes a CCTV system for the basement, public and outside areas, a guard on duty 24 hours and a complex manager in the lobby during office hours. There is also sophisticated access control, as well as a fire detection system in the public areas and perimeter electric fencing.

Consisting entirely of rental apartmentsFONTIJN also provides security of tenure through long-term leases. It combines all the benefits of living in a beautiful, high quality space with the flexibility of renting. Without the responsibilities and costs of home ownership, you have the time and resources to savour your travels, your family or your retirement.
