Tongaat Hulett launches more homes at upmarket Kindlewood Estate

Discerning property buyers are being offered another chance to make their homes at Kindlewood Estate bordering Mount Edgecombe as Tongaat Hulett Developments launches the fourth phase of its upmarket estate.

Described as Durban’s best kept secret, Kindlewood Estate offers tranquil, modern living with nature on the 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.

A 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.

“We have released ten single residential sites as part of Phase 4 along with a further four similar sites from Phase 3,” said Mondli Msani, Development Manager for Tongaat Hulett Developments.

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 township layout,” Msani explained. “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,” Msani said.

“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.”

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 alternative western access to the KZN hinterland.

Aside from offering pet-friendly, relaxed estate life which encourages outdoor living, it is protected by electrified perimeter fencing, camera surveillance and round the clock gate monitoring, ensuring peace of mind for residents. High speed connectivity is available within the Kindlewood Estate via the extensive fibre optic & associated systems already installed. Provision has also been made for staff quarters.

Sustainability has been a key feature of the development from the start. 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. Outdoors, indigenous plants have been favoured for their low water absorption and underground rainwater is harvested and reused for irrigation.

When complete, the 62 hectare gated estate will contain 573 residential units. More than one hundred sites have been sold and a fifth phase is planned for the future.
