4y ago


Royalston The Royalston development is truly one of a kind, and once you have set foot on this awe-inspiring property, your heart and imagination will be captured by its shear beauty and natural surrounds. Whether you'd prefer to sit around a fire at your home as the sun sets over the deep blue Indian Ocean, admiring herds of zebra, wildebeest and eland grazing near your back porch, or whether you prefer relaxing at the reserves Royalston Hotel, sharing a sundowner with your fellow homeowners, each passing moment living here will be a blissful memory to add to a blessed and privileged life at Royalston. Where is it going to be located? The Royalston development is a property measuring close on 1000Ha in size, characterised by pristine coastal forest consisting of ancient Milkwoods, Yellowoods and the like, with open grasslands stretching over rolling hills and natural freshwater streams feeding the largest lake in Port Elizabeth, also found on the property. The development is located on the Southern boundary of Kragga Kamma Road and Lakefarm Road, east of Colleen Glen, extending south towards the ocean. The development is a mere 18km from the CBD of Port Elizabeth and just 15km from the airport. The closest major shopping centre, Walmer Park, is just 12km down the road with another major retail park, the N2 Gateway Development, only 8km north of Royalston, earmarked for commencement in 2011. The Royalston development is thus in a position to offer an opportunity of living in a fully fledged game reserve with the conveniences of everyday city living. No longer will the residents of Royalston need a vacation home, the best of both worlds are found in this opportune development. What are the development components? Royalston is composed of 310 residential properties, Boutique Hotel, Frail Care Centre, Wildlife and Education Centre, 4.5 Hectare Dog Park, the existing and the well renowned Lake de la Vie Wedding and Conference Facility and the remaining 90% of the property being designated as the Royalston Private Nature Reserve. The layout of Royalston is set out in such a way that neither of these components are to the detriment or downfall of one another, with meticulous and strategic positioning implemented during the design phase. The residential properties have been laid out in such a way to ensure that each individual home has at least one boundary looking onto open space, so to provide homeowners the opportunity to enjoy the countryside and various game frequenting the residential open spaces. Furthermore, the major facilities have been positioned in such a way that that for the most, none of the components are visible to each other at any point. Service roads to and from the Hotel and Conference Facility, although using the same main Gatehouse, run separately from the Residential properties to keep traffic to a minimum. The Reserve is available to the residents and guests of the hosting facilities. What can be found on the reserve? The Reserve carries a diverse array of flora and fauna, boasting many critically endangered species; the Honey Badger, Knysna Woodpecker, Secretary Bird, Blue Duiker, Fish Eagle, Cape Eagle Owl, Milkwood, Yellowwood, to name but a few. Large game include herds of Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Impala, Waterbuck, Lechwe, Reebuck, Blesbuck, Springbuck, Bushpig, Aardvark, Eland, Bushbuck, Nyala and the Sable Antelope, Royalston's ambassador and emblem inspiration. Predators include the Black Backed Jackal whose mesmerising cries can be heard as the sun sets, the Lynx, Gennet Cat and Cape Fox. The sound management and preservation of this reserve forms the basis upon which the Royalston lifestyle is derived, where the development ensures the sustainability and longevity of this pristine area. The intimate relationship between the natural ecosystems and the residents will be woven into every aspect of day to day life at Royalston, allowing for a wholesome and nourishing life for both young and old.
