Broken Dreams

This is an advertisement for unit No 1153 on the internet - not sure why it's still on.....
NB!!!! This is R3 million unit that is being syndicated.
Experience the wonder of Venice in a luxury Venetian Villa with waterfront frontage onto a canal with direct access to Hartebeespoort Dam.

The architectural style is Venetian with a triple story villa, offering a ground floor entertainment level which also has undercover place for a boat or car parking, a second floor living area with lounge, dining room and kitchen and a third floor bedroom level with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (main en-suite).
Romantic Juliet balconies are a feature of the upper levels.

But, Venice Village appears to have been stopped in it's tracks!  No further building has taken place for a very long time as everything is overgrown and the waterways stagnant.  The soil here is unstable clay-ee soil and possibly the reason why construction was halted resulting in many millions of Rands 'floating' quite literally to the bottom of Hartebeespoort Dam.  (In the longshot you can see these double storey red roofs in the middle of the photograph.)
