Design guidelines have been compiled in sympathy with the sensitive environment to ensure a unique cohesive architectural character.
However, prospective buyers can choose from four designs to fit their individual needs. Completed units will also be available for the convenience of buyers who are living in other provinces or abroad.
Should you decide to make use of your own design and architect, remember that only professional architects registered with the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP) may submit building plans for approval. The style should be in line with traditional West Coast architecture and should blend in rather than contrast with the surroundings in order to conserve the spirit of this reserve.
Only one dwelling will be permitted per erf.
All four the available designs are double-storey houses with an open plan dining room/lounge area, a spacious kitchen with a separate scullery, a double garage and a swimming pool. Verandas and balconies complete the picture.
Unit type A
Unit type A is a three-bedroom house of 312 m² with two bathrooms.
Unit type B
Unit type B is a four-bedroom house of 327 m². Each bedroom has its own en suite bathroom.
Unit type C
Unit type C is 331 m² in total and has a guest suite on the ground flour with its own bathroom.
On the first flour there are two bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms.
Unit type D
Unit type D is the most spacious design with four bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom.
A guest bathroom is also situated on the ground floor next to the entrance foyer.
Plastered exterior boundary walls, columns and house walls may only be painted in the following Midas colours: Cape Slate, Cape Salmon, Cape Verdi, Cape Beige or Cape Lime.
Of these colours, only two may be used on one erf - one colour as the base for walls, columns etc. and the other to highlight design elements.
Roofs, windows and doorframes, fascias, down pipes and gutters should be in dark grey or charcoal.
All boundary walls are to be of a limited height so that a natural flow is created between urban constructions and nature.
The construction of any dwelling must be completed within one year from start of construction.
Roads in the development will also be paved rather than tarred to compliment the environment.
As little landscaping as possible will be allowed.
Erven are not to be fully enclosed so that the spirit of the nature reserve and natural vegetation can thrive.
Reinstatement of the indigenous hardy vegetation is encouraged.
In this way a landscape theme of a coastal reserve at the West Coast will be realised for the appreciation and benefit of all future generations.
No declared invasive alien plants are permitted within erven. However, the planting of indigenous vegetation such as Milkwood trees is encouraged.
A list of acceptable trees, groundcovers, perennials, shrubs, feature plants and lawn will be given to new owners.
Natural jewels such as elandsvy, groot vetkousie, Kaapse rooi gousblom, wild camphor bush, pronkvygies, bitou and taaibos are on this list.
