Like the Beatles, the four seasons, the cardinal compass points, and string quartets – some of the best, and most iconic things come in fours.  This is no less true for an exceptional new development in Fresnaye, Cape Town, which consists of only four highly luxurious apartments – each taking up an entire floor of this boutique apartment building.

Situated at the intersection of Ave De Longueville and Ave Des Huguenots, 26 De Longueville, which is expected to be fully completed by August 2022, commands a high-profile position in the quiet avenues of upper Fresnaye, between Sea Point and the slopes of Lion’s Head.  Each of the four apartments in this striking, one-of-a-kind development features generous open-plan imported Italian design kitchens, expansive dining and lounge areas.  Three of the apartments are 187 square metres in size and feature three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, whilst the fourth is 175 square metres in size, with one bedroom, one and half bathrooms and a study.

Designed by Peerutin Karol Architects, constructed by BASE Construction, and marketed by Dogon Group Properties, 26 De Longueville features a series of deep overhanging, wrap-around terraces and a floating timber-clad roof. Continuous glazing encloses each apartment whilst ensuring maximum views towards the sea and the mountain.  Extensive street landscaping integrates the development within the natural environment.

The development features a ground floor swimming pool area and an entertainment terrace where residents can enjoy a refreshing dip or sip on a cocktail as the sun slips over the Atlantic Ocean. Residents will also enjoy state-of-the-art security and the utmost peace of mind with exclusive biometric access control and CCTV monitoring.

These features – coupled with the prime location – offer highly desirable, exclusive inner city living, with prices ranging from R 15 250 000 to R 17 995 000.

This beautiful building has a distinctly international feel that is in tune with global trends and influences,” says Paul Upton, head of developments for Dogon Group Properties. “More buyers are looking for exclusivity when it comes to their homes.  They want a home that is distinctive, unique and bespoke – the highly limited number of apartments within 26 De Longueville deliver exactly this for discerning buyers.  Added to this, buyers can work with the interior designer, Francois Du Plessis of FdP Interiors on the internal finishing features of their apartment.”

“This exciting development allows buyers to live in a distinctive space within the bustling hub of one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Located in an area renowned for both its exclusivity and natural beauty, yet offering cosmopolitan urban setting close to the City Centre and the V&A Waterfront, 26 De Longueville offers a sought-after seaside lifestyle.  Tucked away under the mountainside, Fresnaye is not far from Cape Town City Centre, but remains quiet and secluded.  A sheltered spot of Cape Town, it is the ideal year-round Cape Town location,” concludes Alexa Horne, CEO of Dogon.
