6 Stands available in the sought after Zwartkloof Private Game Reserve
All stands have been positioned at least 100m apart with views, big trees, rocks, privacy, views, visual disturbance and noise pollution taken into account. The size of the stands, 2500 square meters, have been deliberately chosen to limit the impact on the natural environment but still allow for a sizable dwelling to be built.
In order to add to the quality of the development, all buildings conform to certain architectural guidelines. This, however, still allow for personal preferences regarding the design. Apart from a gate with facilities for guards we also have a communal complex housing the administrative office, swimming pool, play area and tennis court. A communication center, library and clubhouse is also in the pipeline. The combined surface area of all plots, communal facilities and infrastructure will be under 100 ha. This will amount to only 5% of the total area of 2000 ha being developed.
All of the above will ensure a highly accessible, low-density, ecologically sensitive development of exceptional quality.
