If you’re looking to buy land and build your dream home in Durban, Kindlewood Estate is a must. Or, if you’re ready to move and on the hunt for that perfect family home, you’ll find the ideal home here.
If popping out to the shops drives you mad, then Ilala Ridge Estate will save your sanity. It’s just a quick walk from your front door to the in-estate stores, that house everything you need and more. A fully-fledged pharmacy, supermarket, hairdresser, and more, can be found, quite literally, on your doorstep. Offering picturesque sea views, superb security, in an ever-so-clever, traffic-beating location, it’s no wonder this Durban estate remains in high demand.
An eco-conscious living and golf estate, Simbithi is located just north of Ballito. While it’s not strictly Durban, it is well-loved by people who work in the city, as it’s an easy, quick drive into work every day. Incredible for families, golf fans, and nature lovers, it’s quite common to spot a free-roaming buck in your backyard while you’re at home in Simbithi Eco Estate. Facilities and fun aside, the deep sense of community and caring that exists within Simbithi is what’ll make you sign that purchase offer. Every week offers something new and fun to do.
A little more inland, and up the infamously hilly highway, you’ll find Cotswold Downs Estate in Hillcrest. Bird and nature-lovers rejoice, because this Durban estate boasts a biodiverse, indigenous habitat. No alien vegetation is allowed into the estate, and so far, estate managers have recorded more than 240 unique species of bird living here. Each home on the estate is architecturally enchanting, matching its beautiful environment with ease.
Of course, living in one of Durban’s beautiful estates holds many benefits, but don’t forget that you’re responsible for ensuring that the rules are adhered to, too. Just as living in an apartment block means you’ll need to follow the body corporate rules, estate management rules and regulations must be abided by. Each estate may have different rules, so check to see you’re happy with the estate guidelines before you sign an offer to purchase. It’s all in the name of ensuring a happy, flourishing community. That’s something Durban estate living offers you and your family, with ease.
