Construction of the first two new homes at the upmarket, 230 hectare Kenton Eco Estate near Kenton on Sea has begun, with the building of further homes to commence next year, says Michael Wilmot, area principal for Pam Golding Properties, marketers of the project.
To date 60 percent of the total of 330 stands has been sold, at prices ranging between R460 000 and R1.6 million. The remainder of the stands are priced from R500 000 to R1.65 million, and each is approximately 850sqm in size.
Says Wilmot: "Buyers to date are mainly local purchasers with a sprinkling of those from overseas – buying mainly for leisure investment purposes. As purchasers are obliged to build within five years of taking transfer, many more buildings will follow and the pace of construction will pick up considerably in the next four to five years.
"Kenton Eco Estate combines all the best features of coastal estate living within an environment sensitive to the environment. With 2.15km of pristine beach frontage accessed via private boardwalks, 150ha of dense coastal forest, 70ha of dune forest and free movement of game, the estate incorporates sound eco building practices such as solar geysers and replanting after construction. Sites are also discreetly positioned within enclaves of natural bush and grassland," he says. In addition, the architectural design style of homes advocates the use of only sustainable local materials to blend with the surrounding natural vegetation, while only indigenous planting is stipulated.
All services have also been installed on the estate and the official handover and sod turning for the first homes to commence construction took place recently (24 November 2009), with executive director of Kenton Eco Estate, Chris Swart and Neels Heunis of CM Heunis Building Contractors turning the first soil.
