Head North: It’s the Gem of KZN’s Coast

Words by: Collins Residential 


Ballito has grown from being a chilled holiday town, to now being the place where individuals seek that live-work-play lifestyle. While still upholding that charming coastal feel, this node has transformed and grown over the last decade, where the population alone has gone from 12 000 to 30 000 residents. It has even been revealed that 10% of South Africans from central provinces find KZN’s North Coast the ideal retirement destination. It comes at no surprise that the development and investment into this node continues to heed the ever-increasing demand for dreamy coastal homes and secure lifestyles.


Property Growth

Collins Residential and the Royal Shaka Property Group have created a R76 billion master plan especially for the North Coast. The vision has already been set in motion as Zululami Luxury Coastal Estate and Seaton set the benchmark for coastal living and steal the hearts of investors, homeowners and families alike. Over the last four years, Ballito and Salt Rock towns have experienced an average sectional title price growth of 6% and 7% per annum. While the recent launch of the first phase of The Bay, situated within the acclaimed Seaton Estate, was sold out within two days – shattering sales records in this region, even during a challenging economic time.


Coastal Living at Its Best

“Those looking for property, whether to live or to invest, are looking for the ultimate lifestyle and seaside living is at the top of their wish list. Estates like Zululami Luxury Coastal Estate and Seaton take coastal living to another level, as they create safe environments for residents to really take in the outdoor North Coast lifestyle and explore the natural assets that are literally a few steps away from your home,” explains Murray Collins, CEO of Collins Residential.


There are not many estates that offer you the opportunity to have direct access to pristine beach, an array of clubhouses fit for different hobbies such as beach living, forest and nature engagement and passionate equestrian offerings. The team behind Seaton and Zululami Luxury Coastal Estate has made every effort to rehabilitate the grasslands and forests to what they had been over 100 years ago.


Proximity to Everything

This is where location and lifestyle meet. The coastal lifestyle you will find at Seaton Estate and Zululami Luxury Coastal Estate is harmoniously blended with the convenience of its location. You are within walking distance (200m) away from Christmas Bay beach and approximately 10-minutes or less from Flag Animal Farm, The Litchi Orchard, Curro School, and Tiffany’s Mall. You have everything you need within a quick and easy reach. Longer trips heading south or further north are a breeze as the M4 and N2 highways are just around the corner, while King Shaka International Airport is an effortless 20-minute drive.


Collins ends, “This is just the start of the North Coast boom. As a developer, we envisage this region to catapult within the property scene for years to come.”
