At heart, Fairview Estates is a community. With 96 smallholding farms ranging from two hectares within a secured and monitored fence line, you will become part of a family of “Fairview Farmers”. Based five minutes inland from Ballito, this estate offers traditional and authentic farm living with the freedom of large, open spaces for families and children to grow, giving them the opportunity to learn and invest toward a more self-sufficient and self-sustainable lifestyle.
This estate can be found in a prime location, with various top schools, shopping centres, beaches and golf courses all located within an eight-kilometre radius and two manned access gates allowing residents to easily move between Umhlali, Ballito, Salt Rock and the N2.
What makes Fairview Estates genuinely unique is their profound respect for the environment and aspiration to live an artisanal life and return to our roots. The estate will enable its residents to live completely off-grid by breaking from any dependence on municipal services. They have already built a domestic water scheme that provides water from the multiple boreholes across their 480-hectare estate to each property. Furthermore, all homes will dispose of sewage through approved septic tanks.
The developers have also installed a bulk electrical meter and hi-tech metering systems to manage the estate’s power demands. This is the first step in the rollout of their plan to build a community solar farm. It also allows all farmers to provide for their own power needs through their own rooftop solar. Additionally, residents may, should there be excess demand, sell their power into the estate’s grid. With water, power and sewer covered, all that is left is for you to focus on the important things like harvesting your own fresh vegetables and collecting fresh eggs from your chicken coop, for truly artisanal living.
Other features that separate Fairview Estates from other gated communities are their macadamia co-op, running, MTB and horse trails, and relaxed pet policy, all contributing to their principle of living authentically with unlimited freedom and space.
If living sustainably and co-existing with the ecosystem is important to you, Fairview Estates is the place for you. With 60% of the sites already transferred, there are already “Fairview Farmers” living on their farms, building their dream homesteads and planning their site layouts.
