igh­land Gate Golf and Trout Es­tate boasts the ideal of­fer­ing for an in­vestor look­ing to own their piece of na­ture and have a sought-af­ter Ernie Els sig­na­ture golf course on their doorstep. It is two and a half hours from Johannesburg, in the Steenkamps­berg range near Dull­stroom.

Visi­tors to this mag­nif­i­cent course, al­ready rated one of the best in South Africa, are in for a treat as it is set among some of the most scenic ter­rain in Mpumalanga. Although the lay­out pro­vides an equal chal­lenge to both club player and tour pro­fes­sional, High­land Gate’s strength lies in its high al­ti­tude charm which makes for a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence.

High­land Gate has been ac­quired and re-launched by Cen­tury Prop­erty De­vel­op­ments and pro­vides in­vestors with the op­por­tu­nity of pur­chas­ing a week­end get­away prop­erty in South Africa’s most ex­clu­sive golf and fly fish­ing re­sort. A lim­ited num­ber of 174 in­vestor stands are avail­able, from R715 000 up­wards.

HThe High­land Gate es­tate spans 700 hectares, of which only 30 per­cent will be de­vel­oped.The residential com­po­nent con­sists of 455 prime stands rang­ing be­tween 770 and 1 900 square me­tres.The re­main­der of the prop­erty will be left in its nat­u­ral state for res­i­dents to en­joy. High­land Gate is the per­fect week­end re­treat for out­door en­thu­si­asts and fam­i­lies. Other than golf, leisure ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude hik­ing trails, fly fish­ing, moun­tain bik­ing, pic­nick­ing, swimming and bird watch­ing.

“Due to the fact that Cen­tury was able to ob­tain High­land Gate at a sig­nif­i­cantly lower mar­ket value, we are able to of­fer stands at dis­counted prices which will never be re­peated again,” says Mark Cor­bett, CEO of Cen­tury Prop­erty De­vel­op­ments.“The stands would sell for R2 mil­lion each if this was a green­field de­vel­op­ment. We en­vis­age the prop­erty val­ues to dou­ble and get to those val­ues in the near fu­ture. In­vestors can also pur­chase prop­er­ties in a syn­di­cate to en­joy their week­end get­away with close friends or fam­ily.

“At Cen­tury Prop­erty De­vel­op­ments we recog­nised a re­mark­able op­por­tu­nity to lever­age what we be­lieve is among the finest golf de­signs in the coun­try and open it to the public. We launched a strate­gic in­vest­ment strat­egy by com­plet­ing the de­vel­op­ment in­fra­struc­ture and con­struct­ing a new 12km tarred ac­cess road and state-of-theart golf club­house, un­lock­ing true value for in­vestors,” said Cor­bett. “With these im­prove­ments and a lim­ited num­ber of prop­er­ties, High­land Gate is South Africa’s best kept golf se­cret.We have a strong oper­a­tions team, and have part­nered with the Ernie Els brand, al­low­ing us to lever­age the qual­ity of this as­so­ci­a­tion to of­fer a world­class ex­pe­ri­ence to visi­tors and res­i­dents.” CON­TACT DE­TAILS Prop­erty Sales Rob Emett Tel: 082 882 5087 Email: rob@cen­tury.co.za Web: www.cen­tury.co.za Pro-Shop Tel: 079 568 6106 Email: golf­book­ings@high­landgate.co.za
