Only a few stands left in popular Mooikloof Estate

It's also a horse lover's paradise, says Liesl van der Walt of the RealNet Mooikloof estate agency. "With more than 20km of horse trails in a tranquil setting, stabling and an arena, there is ample opportunity for young - and not so young - equestrians to enjoy their passion."

A high level of security and easy access to big-city conveniences such as upmarket shopping centres, acclaimed private schools and medical facilities enhance the appeal among businessmen and professionals with young families, Van der Walt adds. Buyers are typically in their late twenties to mid-forties.

Braai facilities at the dam within the estate, a bowling green, two tennis courts and a clubhouse round out the recreational offering. The tarred roads - all named after winners of the July Handicap - are popular with athletes in training thanks to the safe, yet picturesque, environment.

A tack shop that will bring a wide range of equestrian equipment to the residents' doorstep has been proposed and a chapel is available for residents' use.

The estate, situated between Atterbury and Garsfontein roads, offers 548 stands of a 1ha each. Launched in the late 1980s, it is about 90% developed, says Van der Walt, but a few undeveloped stands are now available at prices ranging between R2,5m and R3,5m.

Van der Walt notes that there is no limit on how long buyers can leave stands undeveloped, but that once construction starts, owners have 24 months to complete their homes. Owners are also free to choose their own building styles but plans are vetted by the homeowners' association to ensure high standards.

"This freedom of choice has ensured variety, with none of the monotony evident in some 'themed' estates," she says.

"There is indeed a wide variety of built properties also on offer. For instance, the smallest property on our books at the moment is a three-bedroom family home with two studies and a beautiful view at R3,6m, while a luxury mansion with features such as an indoor swimming pool and private cinema is on offer at R19,8m."
