STELLENBOSCH 12 Eikestadnuus ‘Most beautiful house in the most beautiful town’ 15 Augustus, 2013
When one thinks of Stellenbosch landmarks, it’s mainly Cape Dutch gables, ancient oak trees and whitewashed university buildings that spring to mind. Yet one of the most eye-catching and talked about buildings in the Boland town is not one of its historic landmarks – it’s a private residence on the slopes of Stellenboschberg, built only 50 years ago. De Hoge Hoek is an example of one man’s love of wood, and was described by one architect as “the most beautiful house in the most beautiful town in the most beautiful corner of the world”. This unique
and sometimes controversial home has now come onto the market through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R6,9 million. The name “De Hoge Hoek” is Dutch for “the high peak” – a name reflecting both the property’s elevated location and its unusual hyperbolic paraboloid roof design. The home’s story begins in the late 1950s, when Dutch timber merchant and sailing enthusiast Kees Bruynzeel moved to South Africa. He wished to construct a home demonstrating the possibilities of building with wood, and hired a rising star from a leading Dutch architectural practice, Aart Bijl, to realise
The unique roof design means that some corners of the home enjoy a ceil ing height of up to 6 metres.
his vision. Bijl and his mentor Pius Pahl were both followers of the Bauhaus tradition, known for its clean straight lines and integration of form and function. The young architect both incorporated and exceeded this tradition as he designed the new Stellenbosch home from the roof down – using teak rafters and yellow wood ceilings to create the unique saddle-shaped sweep. The roof never rests directly on the walls, but rather on the home’s massive windows, and has space to move under pressure from inclement weather. The home’s walls were designed on a slight slope of just three degrees, creating elegant lines with a finish of face brick, using custom-made extra-slim bricks. The home is noted for the high quality of workmanship, with finishes including teak panels, moulded plaster ceilings in the bedrooms, and huge expanses of glass set in teak frames. The unique roof design means that some corners of the home enjoy a ceiling height of up to 6 m, while the large windows frame magnificent views towards the Simonsberg, Stellenboschberg and even the back slopes of Table Mountain. On completion in 1962, this supermodern design met with mixed reaction from the local community – it outraged some and delighted others, most notably engineers and creatives. And it has remained a talking point ever since.
On both levels of De Hoge Hoek, several rooms have sliding doors open ing into the garden, which includes a large saltwaterchlorinated pool measuring 4 x 10 metres. De Hoge Hoek occupies a plot of just over 2 100 m² and has its entrance on the upper level, leading into a mainly open-plan living space with a formal lounge, dining room and study, a modern kitchen and a small mezzanine library or family room. The lower level contains the sleeping quarters, with a master bedroom suite and two additional bedrooms, as well as a family bathroom, linen room, wine cellar and several storage rooms. A double garage and off-street parking area are also located on this level.
On both levels of the home, several rooms have sliding doors opening into the wonderful garden with its large saltwater-chlorinated pool while two of the bedrooms open into the more private inner garden. An annex to the main building includes a laundry and small guest suite or staff quarters. The property is located in the suburb of Welgelegen. To view De Hoge Hoek, contact PGP agent Lizette Botha on 084 440 1057/021 8871017 or e-mail to email@example.com.

16 Paarl Post Shall I list my property for sale with my friend? 15 Augustus, 2013
When it comes to selling your property, do you list with your friend, or not? Can your friend sell your property? Probably. You could even sell your property yourself. However, you need to consider whether you just want to sell your property, or you want to sell for maximum price. There is a big difference – and it can mean tens, if not hundreds of thousands of rands to you. For most property owners, their property represents a significant part of their net worth. It doesn’t really make sense to sell for less than you deserve, does it? Anyone will buy a bargain. If you stuck a board outside your property saying “For sale at 15% below market
value” you are bound to get interest, and you would sell in no time at all. But, if you want to sell for full market value then more is needed. A really good agent will be able to help you achieve maximum price. How do they do this? It’s a combination of print advertising, electronic and website marketing, and use of technology, that will ensure your property is exposed to a wide buyer audience. Your top agents will also have access to a database of buyers they are already working with. For example, at Harcourts Platinum when we take a new listing we match it to our database of over 3 000 buyers. These buyers are targeted as they have already indicated what they are looking for.
They are invited to view the property, very often even before the first adverts appear. Often we will have a group of different buyers viewing the property at the same time. This creates a sense of urgency with the buyers, and results in buyer competition. When a property enjoys massive marketing and buyer competition then buyers are motivated to make their best offer – not just any offer. That’s the difference between just selling your property and selling it for what it’s worth. When interviewing agents in your selection process, be sure to enquire what they will do to market your home to ensure it stands out and appeals to a wide buyer audience. Find out if they have
SOLD PAARL/WELLINGTON BOLAND
access to a buyer database, and how they use technology to access these buyers. When you’ve compared estate agents, select the one you believe will do the best job for you and help you achieve full market value. Ask for a written marketing plan so that you know you will get what is promised. If your friend happens to be the one who comes out on top, then list with them. If, however, they don’t, then you may find yourself selling for less than you need to – and this could put unnecessary strain on a good friendship. E-mail your real estate question to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Toyota maak skoonskip in Sun City 400 QUICKPIC Die twee Toyota Hilux-inskrywings van die Castrol-Toyotarenspan het hul staal in die onlangse Sun City 400-veldren gewys en as wenners en naaswenners uit die stryd getree. Dit was Anthony Taylor en Dennis Murphy se derde agtereenvolgende oorwinning en het hul Hilux SP03 met nog drie renne voor die einde van die seisoen stewig aan die bopunt van die punteleer in die Donaldson-veldtydren-kampioenskap geplaas. “Die voertuie het foutloos geloop en Anthony en Duncan het netjies gejaag om ’n groot voorsprong voor die res van die renveld op te bou en dit regdeur die ren te handhaaf,” sê die Castrol-Toyota-spanhoof, Glyn Hall.
Dit het hierdie keer sekere voordele ingehou om voor te jaag. Die Sun City-ren word tradisioneel aan die einde van die droë winterseisoen gehou, en die deelnemers jaag gewoonlik in stof. Gedeeltes met swart klei en gras skep egter verbysteekgeleenthede, wat beteken het dat Anthony en Duncan die Hilux se bene effens moes rek om seker te maak die Fordjaers in die derde en vierde plekke agter hulle kom nie te naby nie. Taylor en Murphy se oorwinning het hulle nou tot 10 punte voor Chris Visser en Japie Badenhorst aan die bopunt van die kampioenskapspunteleer laat styg. Toyota het in al drie klasse puik gevaar en die oorwinnings in klas SP, klas D en klas E aangeteken, wat hom ook die vervaardigersprys besorg het. Nie minder nie as elf Hilux-bak-
kies en ’n Land Cruiser het die ren voltooi. Johan en Werner Horn het klas D in hul Malelane Toyota-Land Cruiser gewen, terwyl Douglas Fear en Kurt de Villiers hul Brytons Removals-Toyota Hilux op die bopunt van die in klas E-podium parkeer het. Die Toyota-fabriekspan sal egter nie tyd hê om die silwerware van hul laaste drie oorwinnings te sit en bewonder nie, aangesien hulle reeds sedert begin Augustus besig is met die 2014-Dakar-toetssessie in die Namib-woestyn. Van die veranderings aan die Hilux sluit in veringverfynings met nuwe komponente en selfs nuwe skokbrekers en talle ander detailkomponente regdeur die Hilux, waaronder die onafhanklike agtervering wat ingevolge die Dakar-reels toegelaat word, sowel as werk wat aan die enjin gedoen is.
Castrol Toyota Hiluxspan van Anthony Taylor en Dennis Murphy het hul derde agtereenvolgende oorwinning behaal by die Sun City 400.

Datsun is back with all-new Datsun GO QUICPIC Datsun recently unveiled the first new Datsun car for the 21st century. The all-new Datsun GO will be on sale in India in early 2014. The Datsun GO is the realization of the commitment made by Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. in March 2012 to return the Datsun brand to the marketplace. Datsun is the third brand for the Nissan Motor Company along with the company’s Nissan and Infiniti brands. Datsun will play an important role in the Nissan Power 88 mid-term business plan. “This is an historic day for Nissan Motor Company and for our customers and partners in some of the world’s fastest-growing markets. It’s also an exciting moment for many women and men here in India who – today – come one step closer to realizing the dream of purchasing a car,” said Carlos Ghosn, Nissan Motor president and CEO, when unveiling the car. The five-door, front-wheel drive hatchback will come with a 1.2 F engine paired with a five-speed manual transmission that offers optimal response time and agility in congested traffic. With comparatively compact body dimensions (width – 1 635 mm; height – 1 485 mm; length – 3 785 mm), the car is spacious inside thanks to a wide stance and large wheelbase (2450 mm), and offers ample headroom and an expanded front seating configuration. It will be a reliable partner for families,
providing comfort to five occupants and agility in congested traffic. For those customers never wanting to part with their favorite music and pictures Datsun GO will offer a very practical solution – a mobile docking station to connect with their smartphones. Datsun GO is expected to be “a category up” in its price range, attractively priced below R66 000 in India. This all-new car has been built to meet the needs of recent rising group of optimistic customers in high-growth markets who seek better value propositions. These are people who want transportation that supports their everyday needs, but that also fulfills their dreams and ambitions for a better tomorrow. They are literally “on the move”. They want to GO further, so the name of the car reflects this aspiration. The name of the new car is inspired by the first Datsun, the DATGO, launched almost a century ago in Japan. Back then the cars brought mobility to people who had never dreamed of car ownership before. The reignited Datsun brand and the Datsun GO will bring a similar combination of aspiration and trustworthiness. Datsun GO is high-quality, stylish and modern, delivering an engaging driving experience. The overall Datsun customer offer will include a worry-free ownership experience, competitive total cost, accessible services, with transparent pricing, and dealership proximity. “When a customer buys his first new car in countries like India, In-

Also, as this purchase will represent a significant part of their disposal income, it is important for them to have full trust in the brand and the product. So dream, access and trust are key values for which the Datsun brand stands now,” said Vincent Cobee, who leads Datsun. Datsun models will be individual-
ly developed for different markets, but the concept will follow a common inspiration. Datsun GO will be the first of several Datsun models that will be launched later in 2014 in Indonesia, Russia and South Africa. While Nissan Motor’s global design center in Japan was responsible for the Datsun GO styling, R&D and engineering development for the project were entrusted to local engineering resources and suppliers to ensure the product would suit
local market conditions, preferences, tastes and needs, and would be accessible in terms of price and supply. The project development was, of course, backed by the full assurance of the global Japanese car manufacturer’s accumulated expertise and quality assurance. Datsun GO will be produced at one of the newest Renault-Nissan Alliance factories at Oragadam, in Chennai. More information will be available closer to the start of sales.
