Teak Place Estate- The Future is Green

 In Teak Place Estate

Greetings Teak Place Estate Family and Friends,

As we prepare for the festive season, we would like to take this opportunity to not only reflect on a remarkable year, despite all the challenges, but also extent a heartfelt thanks to all our loyal readers, clients (new and old) and Teak Place/Teakcon teams. We look forward to another successful year in 2022 with more families moving onto the property and many more exciting plans in the pipeline. We hope you will continue to join us on this special journey. Our sales team will still be active over the festive season so please feel free to reach out.

We pride ourselves in our continued effort to ensure sustainable practises at the heart of all we do and always putting our greenest foot forward.

South Africa is in a very fortunate position with an abundance of renewable energy sources available to us such as wind and solar. Teak Place Estate is a completely off the grid establishment and one of the first of its kind in our area. Located in the heart of the world-renowned Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage Site, we find it imperative to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible and take advantage of what nature has provided us with.

Each of our homes are custom designed with the off the grid functionality at the heart of their layout and composition. Architecture plays a major role, and many green technologies and initiatives are used in the designing and building of each individual home, ensuring an energy efficient lifestyle. This efficiency is optimized, right down to factors such as the position of the sun at different times of the year which is considered when positioning windows and mass cavity walls in our homes. Insulation is an imperative element when building the shell of energy efficient homes and is utilized throughout from foundations, walls to insulated screeds on the roof. Double-glazed windows are used to help regulate temperatures inside, reducing the reliance on artificial cooling and heating appliances and thus keeping our energy requirement and carbon footprint as low as possible.

We consider The Cradle of Humankind one of the relatively undiscovered gems in South Africa. There is so much to do and see in the area and with many international travel bans in place, we urge our fellow Gautengers to explore what is right on your door step. You will not be disappointed. Below are a few of our favourites activities and things to do and see:

  • Be sure to visit Molitva Restaurant for a mouth-watering Mediterranean experience which is the perfect setting for a day out with the whole family. Jodev’s ‘pick-a veg’ is situated next door so come along and pick your own fresh bag of organic veggies before or after your meal. This is always a fun and educational adventure for the whole family.
  • Jodev also offer a PARK-RIDE-PICK allowing our athletic Cradle visitors to park their cars in a secure area, go out for a cycle or run on the famous Cradle Loop and end your trip with a bag full of fresh produce ready for your Christmas or New Year menus.
  • The Bothongo Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve is a mere 3km from the Estate and offer guided and self-drives through the reserve.
  • Explore Maropeng and the Sterkfontein Caves. This area is known for its rich history and has much on offer to see and do.
  • For the adrenaline and adventurous type, take a hot air balloon ride over the beautiful landscape, explore on horseback or quadbike, or go on the slide of your life with the Ama Zwing Zwing Zipline Tour.
  • Take a trip to Nirox Sculpture Park to enjoy the outdoor art exhibitions amid rolling lawns, majestic trees and sweeping lakes. Farmhouse 58 Retreat is their latest addition and also well worth visiting.
  • Enjoy a relaxing morning, afternoon, or full day at the many Spa facilities in the area. The Estate is surrounded by world class establishments such as Cradle Boutique Hotel, Kloofzicht Lodge and Spa, Glenburn Lodge and Spa, Woodlands Spa and many more.
