The Milkwood is an upmarket housing development in Milkwood Park set in the beautiful Noordhoek Valley. The development consists of 27 exclusive free-standing homes within a secure access controlled estate. The individual free-hold erven average 450 sq.m in extent.
Milkwood Estate is situated off Bordeaux Road, corner of Juniper Way. Access is via Longboat Road, off Ou Kaapse Weg and left into Bordeaux Road.
The development is elevated above the neighbouring Noordsig housing developments with views of the surrounding Mountains, Noordhoek Beach and the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.
The site is conveniently located in relation to all major urban services and amenities with schools (i.e Synergy, Bay Primary, Sunvalley Primary, Kommetjie Primary), shopping centres (Long Beach Mall, Sun Valley Shopping Centre), various formal and informal markets, recreational and tourist attractions (Cape Point and Chapman's Peak Drive) on its doorstep.
The Milkwood offers an alternative lifestyle to the adjoining residential estates, in as far as the erven are much larger, roughly double the size, whilst still providing the security of access control to the private residential street.
The architecturally designed units are set within a comprehensive site design plan creating a cohesive residential street with designed private and public spaces. The natural fynbos environment is enhanced by the planting of indigenous shrubs (removed from the site prior to construction for replanting) and introducing additional Milkwood trees along the sidewalks.
The specific design intention is to provide an elegant and open living environment optimally utilising the site context and surrounding natural environment. For this reason, large windows and glazed panels are used to create a sense of spaciousness and to allow the surrounding beauty and views of the natural fynbos environment and mountain splendour into each home. The position and orientation of each individual home is tailored to the specific site. All communal boundary walling is designed with the requirements of each dwelling for privacy versus views in mind.
