Sunset Estate - Langebaan - Property Market Report 2018/9

Sunset Estate in Langebaan is an access controlled estate adjacent to the northern border of Langebaan Country Estate and has Blue Lagoon across the road on its northern border with The Waterfront Estate being across another road on its western border. Conveniently Sunset Estate has a pedestrian gate which offers access to the public parking area between The Waterfront Estate and Calypso Beach Estate and from then on to the beach which is less than 500 metres in total from Sunset estate.

This coupled to its proximity to Laguna Mall, Curro School and the centre of Langebaan, plus its relatively small size and simple road layout has made Sunset Estate a popular estate for those buyers wishing to enjoy the West Coast lifestyle from a secure and conveniently situated base.

It is a fairly new estate, being only established in 2005, with the majority of plot sizes being around 400m2, and the estates building rules have resulted in a pleasant blend of unique designs while still maintaining a central design theme.
