Simbithi Eco-Estate – a North Coast Success Story
Simbithi Eco-Estate was conceptualised by eLan Property Group in 2003, with a unique outdoor-centric lifestyle envisioned for families right on their well-designed doorsteps. A harmonious blend of people and nature was pictured, and now it has been delivered by the various companies behind the development’s success. Almost five years ago, the last sea-facing site was sold, and the Estate is thriving, with a whole host of diverse couples and families calling Simbithi home. The Eco-Estate, complete with an 18-hole executive golf course, is situated just 20 minutes north of Umhlanga.
Initially, Simbithi was bought in phases, and constructed as sales were made. As sales increased dramatically, a second sugar farm had to be bought, and the construction took off. The approach at Blythedale Coastal Estate has shifted to mirror the success of the model used at Simbithi, with phases and infrastructure constructed incrementally. In Phase 1, WBHO joined eLan Property Group as 20% partners, but increased their shareholding to 50% for Phases 2 & 3. They finally purchased the remaining shares in 2012, as eLan Property Group focused their attention on Blythedale.
Now, Simbithi Eco-Estate has scenery and lifestyle offerings that are nearly unmatched in the region. The Eco-Estate integrates homes with indigenous forests and grasslands, bush and natural wetlands, with 29 man-made dams providing a haven for birdlife and encouraging the continued success of various species of antelope and small game. This model is being applied and enhanced at Blythedale Coastal Estate, to additionally cater for green technology and further limit the residents’ carbon footprint. Many of the project team involved at Simbithi are linking up for the creation and construction of our new eco-smart estate at Blythedale.
While the last developer stock at Simbithi Eco-Estate was sold some time ago, there are still a number of resale plots available, and a good quantity of beautiful homes and properties available as resales. Every month, eLan Property Group features some of the beautiful homes available for sale at Simbithi. On display below are homes at a number of price ranges, perfect for first-time buyers, holiday house hunters, and family home seekers. For an unmatched lifestyle and steady ROI, choose Simbithi, where good living is in your nature.
