Steyn City’s City Centre: A life well lived
What does living your best life mean to you? For some, it’s the convenience of having everything you could possibly need, whenever you want it, all within a safe haven, where you can sleep peacefully at night. For others, it’s about the comfort that injects a little bit of luxe into every day. For residents at Steyn City’s City Centre, it’s both.
For these residents, there is no compromise. Yes, they want the stability that comes from having the deep roots of an established home – the kind of house that bears witness to children moving out of their cots and eventually into their graduation gowns.
But they also want the kind of lock up and go, maintenance-free lack of hassle that’s one of the greatest advantages of apartment living.
The City Centre offers both, thanks to the combination of its magnificent setting in a 2000 acre indigenous parkland, creating a sense of freedom to explore and a connection with nature that’s highly valued in this age of stress and tension; as well as a strategic location between Sandton and Midrand, offering proximity to key facilities like hospitals, Lanseria International Airport, regional Fourways Mall and highways; on site amenities that elevate the concept of lifestyle to a new level, and a design that sets the stage for living a fulfilled life.
Raising the bar
It’s this design that truly sets the City Centre apart from other developments. The unique architecture of Steyn City’s flagship project turns the notion of apartment living on its head by eschewing the structures we’re familiar with: instead of a single block of apartments, the City Centre presents intimate villages, each clustered around a treed courtyard. A super basement, capable of accommodating 2 000 cars, has been created to ensure that this space is entirely pedestrianised, with residents able to walk around in perfect safety.
The interiors are similarly remarkable. Spaciousness is a recurring theme here: in all apartments, whether one,- two-, three- or four-bedroomed homes, rooms are large enough to accommodate king size beds. High ceilings add to the airy ambience. The three- and four-bedroomed double storey homes, meanwhile, are an ode to luxury: private studies, separate TV lounges and internal private lifts are all standard. In all apartments, the calibre of fittings and finishes makes a bold statement of sumptuousness: think integrated blu-line kitchens with Gaggenau appliances and Kohler sanitaryware, for example, while air con and double glazing ensure comfort in all climates.
A well-balanced lifestyle
Every aspect of the City Centre has been planned to help people live an active life rooted in wellbeing. Residents are able to access the many facilities that have made Steyn City one of the most envied addresses in Johannesburg, from the 18-hole Nicklaus design championship golf course with award winning clubhouse to the equestrian clubhouse (also boasting its own clubhouse), the indoor aquatic centre with its 25m heated pool, the 45km floodlit promenade for walking and running, and 50km mountain bike track are among just some of these fantastic amenities – others include a choice of eateries, fishing dams, and of course, just a step away from the City Centre, the new 300m lagoon with fun water-based activities for endless hours of entertainment and the Ultimate Helistop for luxury business and leisure travel.
These facilities aren’t just for people who want to pursue a hobby or improve their fitness – they’re also ideal for serious athletes, as evidenced by the inclusion of the upcoming Auto and General Cross Triathlon, powered by HOT 102.7FM on Saturday 26 February, where you can swim, run and cycle in acres of secure parkland.
It all adds up to a lifestyle like no other.
