Lavish Nature Haven on the River

Unique architecturally designed home, elevated above the glorious Bushman’s River, in a secure 110ha Nature Reserve, almost fully off the grid, surrounded by pristine Eastern Cape Coastal vegetation alive with wildlife and a plethora of birdlife - including Fish Eagles, a variety of Raptors and Owls.

A dream realised for those yearning to settle amidst Mother Nature’s bountiful beauty – in style!

With superior finishes, panoramic views, superb stonework, indigenous garden, manager’s cottage, large double garage, studio, rim-flow pool, Jacuzzi, wind protected outdoor entertainment areas, direct river access, private jetties in the estate, and more. …

This piece of African splendour is a stone’s throw away from any and all creature comforts, Kenton-on-Sea’s endless Blue Flag and ‘secret’ beaches, delectable eateries, hiking trials, all manner of water sport, and a 15 minute drive to a variety of Malaria-free Game Reserves.

An exceptional riverside country abode for permanent living, or luxurious holiday home for the extended family, and/or blue-chip investment property (let out to weekenders and tourists).
