CONTEMPORARY ECO-FRIENDLY HOME NOW ON SHOW IN CATHKIN ESTATES CONSERVATION DEVELOPMENT, KZN
Cathkin Estates is a Conservation & Wildlife Reserve set on 1054 hectares in Champagne Valley. The Estate is nestled up against the Okhahlamba Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site.
The development consists of 5 Villages, comprising 230 freehold stands covering less than 2% of the total Estate. Each site is purchased with a complete infrastructure of tar roads, mountain water supply and electricity. Filtered water is piped from a dam high in the catchment area to each home at no cost.
With villages positioned in the northern reaches of the Estate, nature is preserved while ensuring all homes enjoy clear berg views and the convenience of proximity to the valley’s varied attractions and amenities.
Security on the Estate is excellent with an electrified perimeter game fence which is patrolled continuously while each village is frequently patrolled on foot and by vehicle.
Several of the premier plots have been reserved by the developers, selected as the ideal sites for the development of Eco-friendly homes. Each eco design is based on energy efficiency to keep room temperatures within a range and thermally compliant with parameters laid down by SANS XA 10400 regulations.
