Your opportunity to build your dream family home or invest in a rental apartment in a secure game reserve estate in Pretoria East.
The epitome of country living is the ability to build your dream family home in a secure environment away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The air is quiet and the landscape undeveloped, boasting traditional Highveld fauna and flora and green, rolling hills. By investing in a country estate you can expect a unique duality between country living and cosmopolitan suburban lifestyle. An ideal arena for a healthy, wholesome environment where the multitude of facilities are conducive to a safe, family-friendly lifestyle. These estates feature clubhouses with gyms and restaurants, greenbelts with walking and cycling paths, kids play grounds, private schools and easy access to highways and commercial and retail centres.
The Hills Game Reserve is an upmarket lifestyle estate that has been conceptualised to be a true bushveld experience within the urban edge and cosmopolitan spirit of Pretoria. With well over 480 hectares of private land, a game reserve has been included which is stocked with different types of antelope ad zebra.
Within the direct vicinity there are numerous upmarket shopping centres such as Woodlands, Parkview and even Menlyn. State of the art security measures are implemented to ensure the ongoing safety of every resident family. The approach and infrastructure for security has been implemented in such a way as to avoid an intrusion before it occurs.
Residents may build their dream homes by using their own architect and builder – providing that the designs take inspiration from our uniquely South African climate and indigenous landscaping. They should aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible. An aesthetics committee will protect the overall visual integrity of the development.
Designed to raise the benchmark for secure living within South Africa, security at The Hills is managed at the highest levels, whilst maintaining a sense of personal freedom to residents. CCTV cameras, infrared cameras with built in analytics, ten metre security servitude along the boundaries that surround the estate, and around-the-clock patrols ensure that the estate is monitored 24 hours a day. Strict access control is managed by dedicated, and highly trained, courteous security personnel.
THE GAME RESERVE
Located within the pristine Highveld bush, The Hills showcases magnificent varieties of veld grass and bushveld shrubs. This forms the perfect backdrop for the game reserve which occupies more than half of the overall site area. A network of walking trails meanders through this pristine environment and residents can get a better glimpse of the wildlife by traversing on foot through this protected enclosure. This area is stocked with various antelope that are widely considered to be low safety for residents and their friends.
A large, fully stocked fishing dam enhances the natural beauty of this site. As a recreational activity, this dam will be the venue for hours of fun and relaxation at the water’s edge. The species of fish have carefully been selected to be non-invasive to the environment.
There is immense natural beauty in the unspoilt bushveld plains of The Hills. It is home to some of the finest bird and tree populations in the sprawling Eastern suburbs of Pretoria. The splendour of this environment is best enjoyed on foot, through a network of walking trails and biking tracks that meander through the natural green belts and large game reserve.
Reddford House is the private school that is situated adjacent to the main gatehouse at The Hills. It opened its doors for the first semester of 2015 and will cater for children as young as one year old and be phased in to cater up to Grade 12. It forms part of the internationally recognised Reddam House stable.
