Luxury Eco-Estate Home & Nature Preserve
The Reeds at Balgowan is a contemporary country estate home overlooking two trout-filled dams located in a spectacular nature preserve and adjoining indigenous forest in The Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal. The readily accessible, private property (off the N3) near the acclaimed Bosch Hoek Golf Club totals more than 60 hectares. The home's award-winning eco-design by a notable California architect combines expansive open deck living with modern conveniences, high-end furnishings, and sustainable energy innovations. Built to blend with the local terrain, The Reeds features quality construction and durable, low-maintenance cement, wood, metal and glass.
Award-Winning, Green Building Design. Ready for Viewing.
The distinctive, four-bedroom home blends with the scenic splendour of a quiet and secluded setting, just a short drive from nearby Nottingham Road and Howick. The Reeds has a single entry point, gatehouse and round-the-clock protective services. There is also an opportunity to expand and create a unique family compound, recreational retreat or corporate meeting destination. The expansive property has eight well-sited, easily buildable plots with road, water and electrical hookups already in place. This scenic, beautifully situated eco-estate overlooks Balgowan Valley and the famed Michaelhouse private school. It is an idyllic retreat for those seeking refuge from the congestion of big cities like Johannesburg or Durban, as well as active outdoor-minded families with children at private boarding schools in the area. The Reeds has also been approved for subdivision development. Incredible value at the R14 million purchase price.
