The newly launched Sardinia Bay Golf & Wildlife Estate just south of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape offers everyone from young families to retirees the freedom of an exciting outdoor lifestyle on an eco-estate within the comfort of a secure, gated community.
Alan Moore, broker manager at RE/MAX Bay Properties in Port Elizabeth, says the 93 hectare residential estate is unique and offers a secure, affordable, yet upmarket development on a golf estate within a wildlife conservancy close to some of the best beaches in the region.
He says the idyllic setting makes this the ideal place to scuba dive, kite surf or simply stroll along the beach. For golfers, there’s a nine-hole short golf course complete with well-run clubhouse. Residents will automatically enjoy membership status and there is also a site for a community centre and sports club.
“The Sardinia Bay Golf & Wildlife Estate provides a value for money lifestyle choice within one of Port Elizabeth’s prime residential areas. Measuring between 905 and 1 180 square metres, the 110 sites are priced from R545 000 to R795 000 with a R100 000 discount for the first 25 investors,” says Moore.
He says they are excited about bringing such a good offering to the market and complete home packages are available from R1.75 million.
Moore says although the infrastructure for the entire development has been completed, the estate would be constructed in two phases, starting with the 64 plots that have been released for sale and rolled out with the best interests of homeowners in mind.
He says there is already interest in the development, with seven sites reserved. He added that he expected the Sardinia Bay Golf & Wildlife Estate to have wide appeal.
The freestanding homes offer lock-up-and-go security, making them perfect for regular travellers or as second homes. Coupled with an outdoor lifestyle, these homes are ideal for young families and the estate provides the perfect base for professionals wishing to relocate their families from big cities while continuing to commute to major commercial centres.
According to Erik Voigt, the architectural style at Sardinia Bay is not unduly prescriptive and investors will have a wide range of choices of modern and eco-friendly exteriors and building materials that will perfectly complement the estate’s picturesque natural setting and outdoor lifestyle.
He says Erik Voigt Architects has embraced the challenge of creating a development which embodies sustainability and they will strive to ensure that the development, as a whole, blends in seamlessly with the environment. Voigt says as they head the Design Review Committee for the estate, they have drafted architectural guidelines, which promote an eco-friendly and energy efficient development while being sensitive to the owners’ needs and tastes.
Ian Christie, chief executive of Shield Homes, which is responsible for construction of the homes and assisting buyers to obtain finance, says one of the most appealing things about the Sardinia Bay Golf & Wildlife Estate is its close proximity to key locations.
The estate is a stone’s throw away from Port Elizabeth - 12 minutes away from the airport, six minutes from the nearest shops and 15 minutes from the Port Elizabeth CBD.
It is close to good schools, churches, gyms, medical centres, hospitals and shops, including the Bay West Mall which is already under construction and is expected to be Port Elizabeth’s largest shopping centre. Because Sardinia Bay Golf & Wildlife Estate lies within the Port Elizabeth urban boundary, it enjoys all the facilities and benefits of a established municipality.
