Reeds Site Selection

Property Overview:

Site 1 located at the northwestern inlet of the larger lake, is uniquely positioned to become an integral part of the natural wet-land ecology closer to the water level. Due to its highly sensitive location, its design sensitivity to its environment is supremely important so as to become a part of the life of the wet-lands that will continue to flourish and regenerate.

Site 2 [Main House] the Reeds property has views overlooking the larger dam. World-renowned architect, Stan Field, designed this award-winning contemporary home to maximize views and enjoyment of the two picturesque dams, wetlands and indigenous woodlands of The Reeds at Balgowan eco-estate. The elegant design expands on the idea of a livable environment. Learn more about Eco-Estate House

Sites 3 & 4 were selected to take advantage of the views overlooking the larger lake. Situated on a gentle, north-facing slope and protected from the northwest and the southeast winds by the surrounding forest, they are ideally situated to maximize the year-round sun orientation as a potential heat energy source.

Site 5 has views in all three directions through the removal of a small row of pine trees on the property.

Sites 6, 7 & 9 are hillside sites located on the western slopes. Concave valleys create natural amphitheatre to the valley and indigenous forest below and the topography allows for privacy in this vast landscape.

Site 8 is just below the ridgeline on the north-facing slope looking down across the Boschhoek Valley and enjoys total privacy.

Site 10 faces directly the magnificent indigenous Yellowwood and Stinkwood forest with north-facing slopes and protected from the northwest winds, enjoying easy access.
