If this is the life you've imagined, then Greenhaven is the lifestyle estate you've been looking for. Conveniently located on the border of Kloof and Padfield Park, Greenhaven is an over 50s lifestyle estate that has been meticulously designed for you to create the life you've always imagined. From contemporary architecture, quality finishes, and high-speed fibre connectivity, to 24-hour security, natural wetlands, a care centre, and a clubhouse - Greenhaven Estate offers you a secure leisure lifestyle with everything you could ever possibly need right on your doorstep.
A closer look at the design of the Estate
The life you've always imagined starts with an ideal location and a beautiful setting. Situated on approximately 10 hectares of prime real estate between the borders of Kloof and Padfield Park, Greenhaven is positioned within 6 kilometres of Kloof's high-end shopping malls, restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. With easy access to the M13 and with so many amenities right on your doorstep, the idea of convenient living has never been so compelling.
The Estate itself encompasses 2,4 hectares of sprawling natural wetlands that are rich in biodiversity, traversed by winding nature trails and alive with abundant birdlife. When fully completed, the Estate will be comprised of 255 architect-designed, modern homes, a Care Centre, and a Clubhouse boasting a resort pool and bowling green.
In the hands of experienced developers, Melki Group, Greenhaven has taken shape as a leading gated lifestyle estate for over 50s. In 2019, as the initial construction phases were completed, Greenhaven welcomed its first residents to their new homes. Now it's a burgeoning community with over 40 households in residence and growing. Currently, the estate boasts 70 completed units with the construction of the Clubhouse commencing in early 2020. According to Melki Group CEO, Thiru Govender: "Any successful over 50s lifestyle estate recognises the importance of individuality and builds a thriving community by offering a wide range of upscale amenities and opportunities within safe and scenic settings." It is this sentiment which lies at the heart of what makes Greenhaven Estate such a competitive choice on the market.
Whatever your reasons for buying a new home - upgrading, downsizing or looking for something new - what remains constant is your need for choice. The units on Greenhaven come in a wide array of sizes, layouts and prices so you can select a home that meets your specific budget and requirements. There are 1, 2 or 3 bedroom simplex options available which vary in size from 56㎡ to 135㎡. There are upper-level apartments if you fancy uninterrupted views of the wetlands or ground level units with low maintenance private gardens if you're not quite ready to hand over your clippers. To further showcase your individuality, you can choose from an exciting range of high-end finishes, such as kitchen countertops, cabinetry, tiles, carpets, and sanitary-ware, so your home is a true reflection of you and your style.
Without a doubt, one of the most appealing aspects of the estate is its value for money. Units are well-priced, starting at R965 000 and ranging up to R1 750 000, with the welcome bonus of no transfer duty as you buy directly from the developers. According to Scott Allnatt, MD of Shelley Residential the newly appointed sole marketing and selling agents for Greenhaven Estate, "If you look at comparable over 50s leisure lifestyle estates throughout KwaZulu Natal, there is currently no better offering than Greenhaven Estate in terms of location, amenities and price."
Your leisure lifestyle at Greenhaven
The lifestyle you have envisioned will most probably include access to world-class amenities and healthcare, an active social life and a sense of security and well-being.
This life starts right at your doorstep, with paths through the wetlands you can ramble with your dog in tow, stroll with a friendly neighbour or go for a bout of bird watching - all in complete peace of mind knowing you are protected by the Estate's rigorous 24-hour security system. The other upside, of course, is you can enjoy this picturesque setting without having the burden of worrying about garden upkeep which is maintained by the Estate.
The Clubhouse will be the hub of social activities on the Estate with a lounge area where you can chat with friends over a cup of coffee; a comfortable library for quiet times that call for a good book; a pub and restaurant for good company and food; a gym and yoga studio for the fit and active, a convenient hair and beauty salon; handy laundry facilities and a Care Centre operated by Medwell SA. Designed to take full advantage of the far-reaching sea views, the Clubhouse has been purposefully crafted to allow people to mingle - making new friends and meeting up with old ones. It's clear resident Derek Leech couldn't be happier with his choice when he remarks, "I think we are in a wonderful situation. It's ideal!"
With such an incredible leisure lifestyle on offer at such affordable prices, there's no longer any need to wistfully imagine the life you've always wanted to live. You can start living it today, at Greenhaven Estate.
