This additionally extends to their nationally acclaimed, championship golf course which offers privacy for both residents and golfers and was constructed at a lower level than the homes and clubhouse giving the perception of playing in a valley.

Furthermore, there are many innovative developments planned for the future. The Estate will comprise a true mixed use environment with an extensive commercial aspect of offices, shops, restaurants and a boutique resort hotel and spa planned for the future. All of these extensive elements lend to a multi-purpose environment where residents need not stray far for all of their lifestyle and leisure requirements in one convenient location.

Notwithstanding land size of each plot of vacant land, prices will vary depending on the relative location within an estate. Factors affecting this cost include:
- Relative location to green belts;
- Whether the land is a re-sale from a previous 3rd party owner or whether the land is a sale directly from the developer;
- Waterlogged and rocky surfaces tend to make a vacant land cheaper as these will most likely increase the cost of building on the plot;
- Current status of the rates, taxes and levies balance on the plot.
