Greetings Teak Place Estate Family and Friends,
We hope you are all keeping warm and healthy. It is with great excitement that we announce that this is our first entry on our new online blog page where we will be keeping you up to date on all things Teak Place Estate. We do apologies for being so quiet over the last few months, but it must be said that this is by no means indicative of what has been happening on the Estate. There has been so much going on since our last newsletter, and we cannot wait to share it all with you.
To our first-time readers, welcome! We would like to take this opportunity to briefly introduce our exclusive off-the-grid residential Estate. Located in spectacular surroundings, Teak Place Estate is nestled in the heart of The Cradle of Humankind and along the famous Cradle Cycle Route. Our homes enjoy stunning views, wide open spaces, and provide the opportunity for farm-style living just a stone’s throw away from Sandton, Johannesburg. Teak Place offers a range of property sizes and types from large sprawling stands dotted in prime locations around the Estate, to smaller village styled stands that provide the joys of community living surrounded by the freedom of open space. There is an investment opportunity for all.
Encompassing mountains, rolling hills and farmlands, Teak Place Estate really does cater for everyone. After months of restrictions and confinement, cycling enthusiasts, trail runners, nature lovers or just those who value space and freedom will not be disappointed with what the Estate has to offer.
Since our last newsletter, there has been significant progress on the first homes under construction which are really starting to take shape with finishing work well underway. With all the frustrations this pandemic has caused and the impact this has had on the construction industry, we are extremely proud of what our building teams have managed to accomplish. The homes truly are magnificent architectural features, and we cannot wait to handover the keys to our new residents and welcome our first families to the Estate.
Our state-of the art onsite gym has now been completed and fitted out with some amazing professional equipment. The space boasts generous areas for activities ranging from yoga, strength and weight work, rowing and even a freestanding boxing bag to release a hard day’s frustration. The big aluminium stackable doors can be opened wide, allowing users to embrace the fresh air and calming surrounds of nature while enjoying their workout. The gym overlooks the natural pool and in the early winter mornings, users will be treated to the most spectacular sunrise climbing over Teak Village as the steam rises off the shimmering pool water. A great way to start any day!!
Another big renovation taken on earlier this year, is the upgrade to our main entrance. Once you turn off the R540 into the Estate, you are welcomed by the flowing form of the stone cladded feature walls that gently guide you inwards. These were inspired by the rolling hills of the Cradle and showcase the beautiful stone craftsmanship that we have become known for. All stone is sourced on site and a well-loved feature used by many of our clients building within the estate.
As you proceed along the well-lit driveway your eye will immediately be caught by the proud outline of our new state-of-the-art guard house. This is an architectural feature in itself, harnessing the rough textures of the stone with tall glass openings and crisp concrete edges. The new access control booms are manned by our friendly security guards who are now on patrol and available to assist 24/7.
Some other exciting news is the inclusion of a health and beauty spa on site. The spa comes as a great fit alongside our onsite Restaurant Molitva who are doing tremendously well and capturing many hearts and stomachs with Chef Milan’s glorious creations. In the days and months ahead, we will be introducing the new spa owners and sharing more of their story and offerings. Watch this space!
