Camperdown’s long-punted theory by locals of being a “Midrand” bridging role between Durban and KZN’s provincial government seat of Pietermaritzburg was given meaningful promise this week with the launch of the R90 million Eagle’s Ayre residential estate.

The 68-stand site, which is perched on the elevated northern brim of Camperdown overlooking a vast nature reserve, was expected by Camperdown mayor, Mr Nene, to act as a serious initiator of future residential development in the Mkhambathini (Camperdown) Municipality and particularly in highlighting the region’s rich tourist potential.
Eagle’s Ayre is the largest residential project so far in the region, which is being increasingly recognised by the province’s larger developers as one of KZN’s emergent hot property spots mainly because of its midway distance between the fast developing Hillcrest and Pietermaritzburg.

Mayor Nene, in his official opening of Eagle’s Ayre Estate, said the development, while boosting the local economy, would also through its marketing profile highlight the town’s “growing pipeline role” between Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

Paulo Scilipoti of developers, Crimson King Properties, noted that Eagle’s Ayre Estate was the largest undertaken by the well-seasoned development company. Its birth into this week’s launch had been primarily encouraged by the sheer beauty of the region and the visionary potential of an eco-friendly, secure environment estate by Jim McSeveny, one of three partners in Crimson King Properties.

Emphasis in the design of units, which is dominated by their proximity to the natural environment bordering the estate, includes extensive use of verandas and large open plan living areas while common use featured an estate boma surrounded by a natural rim flow rock pool.

Developed sites in the sectional title project start at R1,085 for a two-bed free standing home, ranging up to R1,7 million. Building is scheduled for early in the new year.
