The houses at Schoongezicht Country Estate form a complementary entity of Mediterranean lifestyle. They are designed by well-known South African and German architects.

A common factor of all houses are the unique terracotta roof tiles, which are mainly sourced from Verona in Italy. The outside painting is done in different earthly colours. The basis of the various designs of the houses, gardens and the entire development is contained in and governed by a proper Design Handbook.

These parameters were established in close co-operation between the home owners (HOA), architects, landscape experts and the regional environmental authorities. It determines inter alia the position and height of the buildings to preserve the view and safeguard privacy, and at the same time ensure that the value of the individual erven is retained.

It also specifies a number of possibilities of colour combinations for the outside of the houses, as well as design of windows, doors, terraces, perimeter walls and the establishment of decorative gardens with suitable plants. The Design Handbook also functions as the basis when using your own architect. It ensures the gentle and harmonious integration of the Mediterranean style houses into the magical South African landscape with its indigenous vegetation.

The service roads built with terracotta coloured pavers and beige border stones complement the natural landscape. All service roads are fitted with bollard lights, which easily blend into the landscape. An added feature of the development is a small farm cottage dating back to 1856, which was recently completely restored with careful attention to detail.

A large number of houses have already been completed and have since been occupied by their owners. In their construction we focused on high quality building materials and excellent workmanship.

The existing plans can be studied and use as a basis for the realisation of the dreams of new home builders. The plans of different attractive houses can be aquired at a fixed price. Special requirements such as swimming pools, wine cellars, a walk-in-safe, etc. can be included at an additional charge. The erven are fully serviced with all necessary connections, including the conduits for TV - German channels, if so desired.
