Tanglethorn Estate offers safe and tranquil country living within easy reach of urban amenities.
The conservation-friendly estate, a private protected area, comprises 78 hectares of rolling thornveld with unparalleled views of Table Mountain. Approximately halfway between Pietermaritzburg and Hillcrest, it is located 6 km from the N3. Situated in the Upper Mpushini Conservancy, this low-density housing estate offers space, privacy and guaranteed access to large portions of unspoilt land.
Lifestyle & Wildlife
The pristine wildlife area has been preserved by situating a cluster of only 19 stands on the higher north-east facing slopes of the estate. Meeting the objective of establishing larger than normal stands, and maintaining large open spaces, has resulted in only a limited number of building opportunities. All owners have access to the 78-hectare estate.
Impala, zebra and blesbok have been reintroduced to supplement the naturally occurring bushbuck, jackal and duiker. Criss-crossing the estate, varied bridled paths will afford equestrians and hikers the opportunity to enjoy scenic outrides, walks and mountain bike excursions. Rustic benches, a bird hide and a picnic site enhance the outdoor experience.
The estate provides stabling, paddocks, an arena and a lunge ring. The Horse Owners Committee is responsible for the management of the horses, meaning you can stay very involved with your horses, but have peace of mind when away on holiday.
Stands & Theme
Drawing inspiration from the early farmhouses of Natal, the Planning and Design Code is aimed at enhancing your country lifestyle through its architecture and ensuring that each home blends in with the Tanglethorn style. This still allows the owner room to maintain the individuality of their home while creating a harmonious, visually pleasing environment. Green building practices are encouraged.
A perimeter game fence, electrified fencing near the homes and a remote-operated security gate will give you and your family peace of mind.
