The private homes on the estate will complement the natural landscape – allowing residents to be surrounded by nature with the minimum of environmental impact.
Statutory nature reserve status has been secured for Hopewell Conservation Estate – ensuring the protection of the land for future generations and investors.
Just 41 exclusive sites have been set aside for home ownership, with provision for two bush lodges as an extra source of income for the maintenance of the reserve. One of the bush lodges is currently under development and will offer a social hub for residents to relax and enjoy the unspoiled natural vistas. A boutique function venue will also be available for corporate and private events.
Detailed designs have been prepared by Richard Stretton of Koop Design, an award-winning Durban-based architectural firm that specialises in sustainable “green” architecture. His contemporary designs make use of the natural stone and other materials found in the area, and are designed to complement the home owner’s lifestyle.
The first phase of residential erven have been demarcated, ranging between 2,500 and 4,000 square meters in size, each with a building footprint of 500 square meters.
All properties will be unfenced, with landscaping integrating into the natural surroundings – giving new meaning to the concept of “lock up and go”. The first phase will include 16 exclusive units in the residential node.
