50 and Fabulous

< 1 min read This is the 50th edition of the printed Estate Living magazine. It is quite amazing to write that sentence. I can remember the very first edition like it was yesterday. We launched Estate Living in October 2012. Dirk Uys was the first community manager to support us, and we showcased Arabella Country Estate on our front cover. Around 10 Western Cape-based communities subscribed to the publication on behalf of their residents for the first edition. We thank you again and look forward to continuing to support the value of residential community living in the pages to come.

December 2021


< 1 min read What a year 2021 has been! For Estate Living, the last 18 months have been a time of constant change – as we are sure is the case for nearly all of you. Instead of dwelling on the challenges, we wanted to rather use this opportunity to reflect on some of the successes we have experienced during the pandemic – because there have been many! Please stay safe on the roads, enjoy the travel adventures and have a wonderful festive season. Just like you, we’ll be toasting to good health and plenty more successes in 2022.

November 2021


< 1 min read There is no doubt that the world, South Africa, our businesses and home environments have changed over the last year and a half. But the one thing that remains a constant is the benefits of estate life. The positive effects of living in community-driven environments have been seen far and wide, and the support within these structures has been a solace for many.

Estate Living

April / May 2020


< 1 min read Everything changes, everything stays the same. We have changed the way we do most things – the big things and the little things – and we’ve changed the way we think about life, the future, our friends and families. But we’re also trying to keep some perspective, some normality.

December 2019


< 1 min read There is a theory that the expansion of the universe is accelerating, and that the rotation of the earth is speeding up. If that’s true, it means that time is going quicker, and it certainly seems as if it is. It seems like only yesterday that we were singing ‘Auld lang syne’, and now 2019 is pretty much all over bar the shouting. Here’s to a joyful festive season – a time of relaxation, friends, family and fun – and an awesomely fantastic, productive, effective and super-fun 2020.

September 2019


< 1 min read It’s spring. Birds are singing, leaves are budding and there’s new life everywhere. So, throw off those heavy winter woollies. It’s time to stretch your wings, explore new territory, and frolic a bit – rediscover the joy of living. Most importantly, let’s celebrate the longer days by making the most of every single one of them.

July 2019


< 1 min read Everything we do has an effect: on ourselves, our families, our communities, and – possibly – the whole world. It’s all connected, from the tiniest element to the biggest.

Design for Living

< 1 min read Great lifestyles don’t just happen – they have to be planned, designed. And that involves far more than deciding what colour curtains to hang, or where to put the couch.

Invest SA

< 1 min read Investing in South Africa is more than putting some funds into a fixed deposit or squirrelling away a few K every month in an endowment. And it’s also more than buying property – although that is part of it.

Retirement Living

< 1 min read There are two ways of looking at retirement. In the past, it was the dreaded interim between being useful and being dead, but now it’s the culmination – the pinnacle, the goal we all work towards. The lucky (or clever) ones retire at 40, the rest of us wish we could.

The Slow Movement

< 1 min read It always seems to take time to get into the swing of a new year but, by the time March comes round, its pretty much full steam ahead, so we decided to jump off the hamster wheel, stop and smell the daisies, to take stock, and to assess whether all that rushing is really necessary.

We kicked off 2018 by launching our website in February, and bringing in some talented tech pros to help us optimise our content and reach.

The Classics

< 1 min read Some ideas have a very short shelf life. But then some things become classics – for the very simple reason that they combine great design, utility and timeless elegance or beauty – and they either never go away, or keep coming back. Classics need not be big and important – they just need to be perfect.

October 2018


< 1 min read While we know residential estates are fantastic places to live, they’re also great investments. And, as we discovered when we started looking, there is more than one way to package your property investment. Hotel rooms are a great way to add to your portfolio.

New Developments

Retirement and Healthcare

< 1 min read In July, Estate Living has had to research, write about and think about issues that most of us would rather deal with … aftermorrow. Contemplating old age and death can be scary – especially if we focus on the negative – but it can also be liberating.
