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.

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.

Estate Living

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.

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.

Estate Living

April 2019

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 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.
