Negester Klein-Kariba, with its beautiful Bushveld fauna and flora, is situated in the Waterberg Biosphere - a UNESCO Heritage Site. This secure and sustainable lifestyle estate for fifty-plussers borders the ATKV Klein-Kariba holiday resort, is close to Bela-Bela and is only an hour’s drive from Pretoria. The Bela-Bela and Waterberg region have a wonderful summer rainfall climate, great shopping facilities, a private hospital, top-class golf courses and various nature reserves.
Here’s why we’re heading to the bushveld:
1. A Symphony for the Senses
At Negester Klein-Kariba the design style of the buildings is a contemporary interpretation of historical Lowveld farm architecture which blends perfectly with the Bushveld environment and agricultural context. The homes are designed with low energy consumption and a low eco-impact in mind and are built with low maintenance materials. The lifestyle estate comprises 83 ha, with plenty of open green spaces and wildlife such as zebra, impala, nyala and warthog.
2. It’s An Investment
More than 184 of the full-title and sectional title properties have already been sold and 248 plots have been fully serviced. The prices of the full-title plots start at R426 600 and house sizes vary from ±104 m² to 247 m². A plot’s price includes approved building plans, architectural fees and transfer fees, municipal fee for submission of plans of ±R2 000 excluded. Also on offer to the discerning buyer or investor are the sectional title duets. The prices of duet units with standard finishes start at R895 000. A unit is 77 m² (included is a veranda of 9 m² and a carport of 18 m²). Apart from transfer costs, no VAT or municipal submissions fees are payable.
These units are conveniently located within the lifestyle estate, near the medical care centre, main entrance and proposed community centre that will incorporate a multi-purpose hall, library, hair salon and lounge with ladies’ bar. A healthy lifestyle is also encouraged with the best sport facilities available which will include, tennis courts, a gym, a heated swimming pool and bowling greens.
3. ATKV as Development Partner for Peace of Mind
The ATKV board adopted a diversification strategy about seven years ago to, amongst other things, be involved in the development of lifestyle housing for the fifty-plussers group. According to Schalk Cilliers, the managing director of ATKV Sake, it was the strategy of ATKV to establish secure lifestyle housing in South Africa for fifty-plussers. Negester Klein-Kariba and Negester Onrusrivier were the first steps taken towards implementing this strategy.
4. A Sanctuary for Gentle Care
Negester Klein-Kariba boasts a modern, well-equipped, 12-bed health care centre. Home care is offered as a standard option by Medwell, the health care service provider. Medwell specialises in hands-on, valued community-, medical- and nursing services. They also have a practice number that enables them to recover costs from the medical aid on behalf of the residents in certain cases. Schalk Cilliers states that, “It is also our aim to provide home care at each Negester as a standard service option, and to build modern and well-equipped care centres that make provision for residents’ medical needs and in so doing ensure peace of mind.”
5. Shine Bright
Well-known Afrikaans author and poet, DJ Opperman’s poem, Negester en stedelig, was the inspiration behind the development of the Negester brand and slogan, Shine bright! The Negester vision expanded on this, namely the development and management of sustainable, secure and valued lifestyle estates where the total wellbeing of the fifty-plusser group is cherished.
