Welcome Home. Welcome To Xanadu Nature Estate

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg and Pretoria, then take a 45-minute drive to North West, and you will soon stumble upon the majestic Magaliesburg Mountains and, nestled within them, the Xanadu Nature Estate.

Set on 240 hectares of beautiful, indigenous bushveld, Xanadu, which means ‘idyllic place’, offers the perfect location for families, work-from-home executives and retired folks who desire secure community living in the tranquillity of nature.

A great passion for the outdoors

Those who have already made Xanadu their home have done so not just because of the larger-than-average homes and state-of-the-art security (which, by the way, includes 24-hour access control, foot and vehicle patrols, full electric fencing with thermal CCTV cameras, and an onsite alarm and monitoring service). Instead, they made Xanadu their home because of its passion and respect for nature and the wealth of recreational activities available.

Xanadu Nature Estate is also home to 280 different species of birds, which can be observed from four different bird hides across the sprawling estate. Ungulates such as blesbok, impala and nyala freely roam the estate ground alongside smaller creatures such as mongooses, porcupines and bushbabies that live in the woodlands.

As a registered conservancy, the estate also has an onsite environmental management team to help manage and conserve its biodiversity, and part of this service includes a self-sustaining plant nursery, an invasive plant removal programme that eliminates harmful species such as pompom weed, syringa and Spanish thistle, and natural wetlands throughout. There is also a Passive Game Capture Boma, which captures and houses sick animals and introduces new genetics to ensure that fauna are strong and healthy.

The most ourdoorsy lifestyle money can buy

Residents at Xanadu Nature Estate enjoy a fun and active lifestyle. The Lifestyle Village, incorporated in the estate, offers a huge array of services and activities. On any one day, you can make use of the tennis courts, cycling and hiking trails.

Xanadu Private School is a Christ-centred private school for both girls and boys. The eco-school is situated right next door to the estate, allowing for safe accessibility on foot for both parents and children, and offers preprimary, primary and high school education as well a nursery for toddlers above two years of age.

However, what makes this estate really stand out from the rest is its central location, which is just a stone’s throw from some of Gauteng’s prime landmarks. Xanadu residents often spend their weekends with their families, either taking in the breathtaking Hartbeespoort Dam on a Harties Cableway ride, having a picnic and drinking in the panoramic views of the Cradle of Humankind, or going on a safari in the Lion Park. Other nearby attractions include the Jasmyn craft and food market, Cradle Heath Spa, and of course the splendid Magaliesberg area, which boasts unrivalled natural beauty and glorious hiking trails for all levels of fitness. This really is the place for the adventure-spirited, as well as the less so, to live harmoniously.

Xanadu Nature Estate offers a laid-back, family-centred lifestyle that is ideal for those yearning for a breath of fresh country air and wholesome yet secure outdoor living.
