EnviroLiving > Eco-Estate Model

A Natural and Secure Environment:

  • Not fenced to allow natural migration and movement of wildlife; all services underground to maintain the integrity of the natural setting.
  • Excellent security provided by topography and geo-setting supplemented by fully staffed security gatehouse, motion detection systems, and armed, rapid response security patrols.
  • Architectural guidelines protect the indigenous forests on, and adjoining, the estate, as well as visual integrity of The Midlands landscape, especially the hills overlooking Balgowan Valley.
  • Excellent water quality from aquifers and spring supplying the dams; boreholes, storage tanks and new regional water line ensure water supply to homes on the estate.
