In order to achieve our vision, landowners will need to adhere to the Estates’ architectural style and recommendations.


  • The architecture will be substantially similar to the featured pictures, with wide verandas suitable for our hot climate.

  • Roofs will be blue/grey and walls a sandstone colour or similar.

  • Plots around the ponds must remain single-storey.

  • Waterfront properties may only build low visibility fences on the waterside boundary to minimise their effect on their neighbours.

  • The entire estate will be surrounded by an electric security fence. There will be an attractive entrance feature with a permanently manned gatehouse and boom system. There will an intercom system to allow the security guard to clear visitors with homeowners.

  • Properties need not be walled. Homeowners electing to build walls will be restricted to a maximum height of 1200 mm which we encourage to be screened by greenery.

  • The Ballito town planning rule allows for a coverage of 30% and Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 35% for the properties permitted to build double-storey houses. 

  • Dog owners will be required to keep their pets in secure areas to prevent them roaming.


  • The Estate has 24hr guards linked to armed response. 

  • Access control required for guests and contractors.

  • Perimeter secured by Beta and  a16 strand electric fence.

  • A number of infra-red cameras and motion detector flood lights strategically positioned along the fence line.
