A life less ordinary1st Jun 2019
You can have it all – live in the country with wide-open spaces.
Perfectly balancing freedom and space with top-of-the-range, AAA-rated security, Monaghan Farm offers safe, secure country living – a place to breathe, relax and wind down. A place to bring up a family in a nurturing environment without the hustle and bustle of city life.
Space – in perpetuity
The property is in excess of 502 hectares, and there will be only 305 units, each on a generous stand of an acre, and two mature lifestyle villages of 190 units. There’s plenty of space to play – a 32-kilometre single-track MTB trail for the hard-core, and loads more gentle tracks for less ambitious cyclists. The Jukskei River meanders through the farm, so residents can stroll along the seven kilometres of river frontage with its abundance of bird life. Monaghan has a central equestrian centre, and – of course – over 420 hectares of land for hacking.
While the natural bushveld gardens seem extensive, they are only a small part of the estate, the remaining undisturbed land contributes to maintaining and preserving the biodiversity of the precious highveld grassland biome.
The single-storey houses feature rainwater harvesting, and the estate utilises renewable energy as far as possible; residents are encouraged to garden indigenously.
Schools and community
Social life at Monaghan centres around the elegant and sophisticated, but relaxed and rustic, Other Side Restaurant, operated by Chenin Noir, where residents can enjoy a meal or just meet for coffee. And, of course, the centre of any community is its schools.
The Monaghan Montessori School adheres strictly to the well-known and tried-and-tested Montessori principles and philosophy, while Curro Monaghan has a Christian ethos and follows the core pillars of child-friendliness, positive discipline and creative thinking.
Monaghan Farm is superbly central, with Lanseria International Airport less than five minutes’ drive. And, with high-speed fibre with speeds of up to 100 MB per second, residents can cyber-commute to anywhere in the world.
You can have it all – live in the country with all the space you could ever need.
