The beautifully designed 18-hole Greg Norman golf course weaves its way through the estate, which has recently been augmented has ensured that not only residents but also Sunshine Tour professional golf players are challenged on every hole.

Since construction kicked off in 2007, the development ensured that there would be space for plants, birds and small mammals to thrive and this ethos is continued today. This is achieved by concentrating homes in clusters scattered about the 750-hectare estate. Another benefit of creating these pockets of residential developments, is that it is created a greater sense of community within the estate - which remains one of the goals of the developers.

This integrated town planning makes allowance for an eventual 3000 dwellings. So far 500 homes have been or are being built, with stand prices ranging from R890 000 to R10 million, while completed homes starting at R2 590 000 within a cluster development. Here the traditional purchasing model of 10% down with 45 days to secure the balance applies.

If you are hoping to invest in the Eye of Africa Golf & Residential Estate, then you will be glad to know that there is both houses and land packages available which will allow you to build your dream home in this slice of African paradise.

Working with accredited developers such as Solid Living, JESC Contractors or Cornerstone Projects and architects, MVM Architecture, will not ensure that your dream home is of the highest quality but also up-to-date with the aesthetic requirements of the estate.

While each cluster has its own character, the general architectural style is ‘Afropean’ - clean and refreshing design, combined with African flair and innovation.

The estate is set to further grow into the escape needed from a hustle and bustle of city life as it matures and settles into its promise of lifestyle, tranquility and quality of life.
