Origins, new cluster development at Eye of Africa, will have you breathless

Eye of Africa golf and residential estate proudly unveils Origins, a new cluster development which will be home to 26 beautifully appointed homes.

Origins is located on the north-facing escarpment of St George’s, one of the estate’s freehold villages. This site affords it magnificent views sweeping from the low-lying Greg Norman-designed golf course (which recently played host to the second PGA Championship) as far as Johannesburg’s iconic skyline. Adding to the drama of this landscape are the estate’s naturally occurring rock formations.

Chris Sparks Architecture has focused on creating a housing design that takes full advantage of this spectacular setting. All living areas feature floor to ceiling sliding doors that open up to generous covered patios leading onto the gardens; a fluid configuration that invites the outside in.

With three-to-five bedroomed options available (and all bedrooms en suite), the clusters are ideal for families and couples alike. Modern and contemporary, highlights like the steel and timber staircases leading to the master suites and bespoke kitchens and joinery add a touch of luxury and sophistication.

Not surprisingly, given Eye of Africa’s emphasis on cherishing Johannesburg’s natural heritage, Origins has embraced eco-friendly architecture with features like deep roof overhangs and open plan living areas allowing natural cross ventilation, while heat pump geysers, LED lighting and gas cookers encourage efficient use of energy. Homeowners are able to select from a menu of optional extras (including a boma, pool, aircon, surround sound, double glazing and underfloor heating) to create their dream lifestyle.

Gothic Construction has broken ground and completion is scheduled for mid-October 2017. Pricing starts from R4 390 000 and six homes have already been sold.

Existing homeowners at the Eye of Africa are enjoying the many recently opened facilities, including Central Park. This family-friendly facility boasts a new resort pool and playground, as well as a waffle parlour – perfect for keeping kids entertained while mom and dad enjoy a delicious meal and bottle of wine at the Schoolhouse Deli, without losing sight of their little ones.

Other new facilities include a convenience store stocking basics like bread, milk, cheese and cold meets, Green’s Grillhouse eatery, a putting green, floodlit tennis courts and netball courts.
There’s simply no reason to leave home.
