Waterfall Equestrian Estate is a prime example of a secure lifestyle development that integrates security with lifestyle elements. It is widely considered to be one of the most spectacular residential property developments in Southern Africa.
Situated less than 10 minutes North of the Sandton CBD, between Woodmead and Kyalami, the 200 hectare property was developed as a lush, secure country estate with a high quality infrastructure.
Intensely and responsibly landscaped, Waterfall Equestrian Estate sets a new ecological standard for residential developments. Extensive water features throughout the estate create a magnificent backdrop for the thousands of indigenous trees, selected grasses and fish - all carefully chosen to create a sustainable and integrated ecology.
The estate has been designed to provide a sense of personal freedom, expression and security for each and every resident and their families. Security is managed at the highest level with state of the art CCTV and access control systems. These structures are supported by highly trained staff and security is effectively and aesthetically integrated into the lifestyle of the residents to be non-intrusive. The perimeter security and access control points are, however, highly visible to the outside world. The gatehouse is designed as a bridge crossing over an impressive water feature and will be integrated through landscaping for a unified visual presentation. The perimeter is secured by a 4 meter high reinforced concrete wall, topped with an electric fence and mounted CCTV camera’s. It is always well lit and patrolled by security.
“Tintswalo at Waterfall”, a luxurious boutique hotel consisting of sixteen opulent suites, is located on the estate and boasts a 360 degree view of Midrand and surrounds. The building was conceptualized as a giant historic barn, which has been transformed by means of an abundance of persian carpets and oil paintings into an exclusive lodge boasting world-class restaurant, spa and conference facility. The equestrian amenities of the estate comprise of stables, paddocks, veterinary and tack rooms, training track, jumping arena, lunging ring and dressage arenas. An extensive set of hygiene controls are to be implemented and maintained to provide a constant level of enjoyment to all residents.
Century Property Development’s aesthetics committee have specified that the design of houses throughout the estate should be in response to the South African climate and lifestyle. Homeowners will have the freedom to create unequalled and diverse homes which will be in keeping with the proposed theme of the estate. Century aim to realize a true Highveld vernacular architecture, based on the traditional farmhouse and manor house. With this specified formula the use of various raw materials will be encouraged, with a focus on stone, brick, wood, metal and glass. ??
