Arabella Country Estate

With its famous golf course, 145-room five-star hotel and spa, and 237 residential stands set on 113 hectares of natural fynbos, Arabella Country Estate has come into its own – and it’s now begun to attract younger families seeking an exceptional, safe, country lifestyle that’s nevertheless close enough to all the attractions of the big city.

Near the Beach, on the Ball, on the Money

There’s so much to consider when you’re buying a home, not least because of its investment potential. Having said that, you don’t want to buy something just because it makes financial sense and then find you don’t like living there, or possibly worse, follow your heart and find you’ve made a bad financial decision.

Uniciti

Only a four-hour flight from Johannesburg and nestled in the Indian Ocean off the East African coastline, Mauritius boasts a strategic location bridging the African continent and the Indian subcontinent. The country is a sought-after destination characterised by a privileged lifestyle, resilient economy, political and social stability and excellent sustainability rankings in Africa. More than its tropical climate and cultural diversity, Mauritius positions itself as an international financial centre with many financial and social incentives.

Common Ground, Common Interests

Most lifestyle estates strive to create a sense of community, yet few succeed. So, how has Kyalami Estates managed to get it right? Wander through any of the events that Kyalami Estates host annually and you’ll notice that almost every resident stops on their way to greet their neighbours. It’s the kind of collegial atmosphere that most residential estates try to emulate but, although they might achieve friendliness, cohesiveness often remains just out of reach. Yet it appears to be an integral part of the Kyalami Estates character; indeed, it’s one of Estate’s defining qualities.

Global Assets

If you’re considering an offshore investment property, it’s best to partner with a company who understands the intricacies South Africans will face, the pros and cons of the markets you’re investing in, the local conditions that might affect your decisions, and the international laws and considerations you should be aware of. Take a look at how IP Global can help you to expand your investment portfolio across borders.

Slack-Packing

So you want to go on holiday without neglecting your exercise habit, and maybe get out into nature for a good cardio workout. An unspoilt location, good food and wine, a decent bed and a shower at night are essentials. Pretty flowers, wildlife and interesting cultural attractions are a bonus. And you’d prefer for someone else to take care of logistics. Is that too much to ask?

Getting to the Point

Whether you’re a first-time buyer, a reluctant renter or a wannabe holiday home owner by the sea, buying property requires some thoughtful planning – and with so many factors to consider, not least the political and economic climate of the country, it’s hard to know where to start, but we are confident that Pinnacle Point Estate will amaze and impress you beyond your wildest dreams.

Restoration Begins on Joburg CBD’s Most Neglected Buildings

Johannesburg City Council is driving an initiative to restore 84 buildings in the CBD to provide efficient, contemporary accommodation for city dwellers, and tenders have been awarded to various developers who’ve now started this visionary transformation of some of Jozi’s oldest residential hubs.

Santam – Market Leader in Property Development Insurance in any Economy

In a constrained economy like that of South Africa, the possibility of new construction projects is limited. This, along with the rapidly increasing cost of living as a result of the increasing cost of fuel, the inflation rate, and the VAT hike of 2018, has put pressure on consumer spending. That’s the bad news. Here’s the good news.

Sustainability in South Africa

An important consideration when investing is the state of affairs in the region you are considering investing in – and this goes beyond the obvious financial and political considerations. Ask questions about the sustainability of the region’s energy and water sources, its waste management policies as well as its biodiversity conservation. With all considered, South Africa still ticks most of the boxes for being a desirable region to invest in.

South African Design is Going… Well… Everywhere

South African design is going places. Porky Hefer’s installations and furniture designs, Andile Dyalvane’s ceramics, Rich Mnisi’s fashion and furniture designs, and Dokter and Misses’ furniture and product designs are just some local pieces increasingly rocking art fairs and exhibition halls around the globe.

It was a Dark and Stormy Night…

Museums are not about old crockery, vintage clothes, beautiful furniture, historical photos and rusty farm implements. They’re about stories, but sometimes you have to look hard to find them. And sometimes those stories illustrate an important principle or moral.
