New releases in Durban’s exclusive Kindlewood Estate

04 Jul 2015

Described as Durban’s best-kept secret, Kindlewood Estate offers tranquil, modern living with nature on its doorstep. Green open spaces include walking paths and wetlands favoured by a variety of birdlife. The socially-minded will appreciate the spacious community centre with swimming pool.

Kindlewood Estate shares its greater environment with the Mount EdgecombeCountry Club Estates, and is conveniently close to both Umhlanga Ridge town centre and Gateway shopping mall, as well as having alternative western access to the KwaZulu-Natal hinterland, says Msani.

This is according to Mondli Msani, Development Manager for Tongaat Hulett Developments, who says discerning property buyers are being offered another chance to make their homes at Kindlewood Estate, bordering Mount Edgecombe, as the fourth phase of this upmarket estate is launched. 

“We have released ten single residential sites as part of Phase 4, along with a further four similar sites from Phase 3.”

The estate’s contemporary Natal veranda style of architecture is characterised by green roofs and a combination of cream and earthy face brick walls, designed to complement the natural landscape.

In addition, eight planned unit developments (PUDs) encompassing 215 units are also on offer.

“These are sites that have the potential for sectional title development with a limited number of units as depicted on the layout,” says Msani. “We expect that these will be purchased by several different developers.”

This is an exciting opportunity for individual buyers who enjoy the benefits of gated estate living, and who would like to be involved in all aspects of building a home that suits their needs and tastes, from the foundations up, says Msani.

He says it also provides interesting options for investors wishing to buy and rent out the units, as well as for residential property developers to create a desirable living space in smaller complexes within the estate.

When complete, the 62ha gated estate will contain 573 residential units. More than 100 sites have been sold, and a fifth phase is planned for the future, says Msani.

Kindlewood Estate shares its greater environment with the Mount Edgecombe Country Club Estates, and is conveniently close to both Umhlanga Ridge town centre and Gateway shopping mall, as well as having alternative western access to the KwaZulu-Natal hinterland.

Aside from offering a pet-friendly, relaxed estate life which encourages outdoor living, Msani says it is protected by electrified perimeter fencing, camera surveillance and round-the-clock gate monitoring, ensuring peace of mind for residents.

He says high-speed connectivity is available within the Kindlewood Estate via the extensive fibre optic and associated systems already installed. Provision has also been made for staff quarters.

Sustainability has been a key feature of the development from the start, he says. These include supporting water and energy efficiency initiatives like solar power, energy-saving electrical fittings, separating “grey" and "black" water to reduce water consumption and the use of VVR air conditioning systems for ventilation, which require less power than conventional systems.

Msani says outdoors, indigenous plants have been favoured for their low water absorption, and underground rainwater is harvested and reused for irrigation.

When complete, the 62ha gated estate will contain 573 residential units. More than 100 sites have been sold, and a fifth phase is planned for the future, says Msani.
