Motswedi Place offers affordable , secure , lifestyle estate living

By Brett Marlin
For a number of years , we have not developed many residential properties , except for Sesigo Mews , but we are back in the residential market in a big way with Motswedi Place . Motswedi Place is a 198-unit multi residential housing development that we are doing in three phases . The first phase of 80 units started on site on 1 May 2022 and is planned for completion in August 2023 . Motswedi means ‘ fountain ’ in Setswana and this is what we have planned this development to be , the start of the purchaser ’ s wealth and prosperity . The demand has been quite amazing and at the time of ’ going to press ’ we had sold 66 of the 80 units that are available .
As with all our developments , we try to offer buyers really well-designed , good quality units that offer value for money . For Motswedi , we have managed to include all transfer costs , bond registration and other legal fees within the purchase price , which certainly assists the first time buyer who has limited funds .
We have three separate units :
• 42m ² one-bedroom units .
• 74m ² and 76m ² two-bedroom , one-bathroom units .
There is an option with the two-bedroom units to have a ground floor unit with ‘ exclusive use area ’ gardens . All units have fully fitted kitchens with builtin stoves , tiled floors , glass shower doors and good quality finishes . All units have access to the communal play area which includes a clubhouse , braai area , kids gym , adults fitness area and an indoor soccer court .
