Plantations Estate | Residential Estate in Hillcrest

A magnificent Tuscan-inspired estate with quick access to the highway, Plantations Estate is set on eighty-six hectares of prime real estate, just behind Hillcrest's Oxford Centre. Boasting freehold homes and four delightful sectional title villages, it is particularly popular with families who enjoy a close proximity to three shopping centres and 14 primary and high schools within a 10km radius.

Upon its launch in 2002, Plantations almost single-handedly transformed Hillcrest into the thriving town that it is today. Easy access to the M13 & N3 Highway makes commuting to Durban or Pietermaritzburg viable, whilst the Hillcrest CBD is a brisk walk away.

Plantations is quite aptly referred to as a 'town within a town' and residents are seen walking their dogs, jogging in the afternoon or watching their children at the various playgrounds. The sectional title villages provide a myriad of walking paths and is also home to a hair & beauty salon. Pets are permitted on freehold properties and the Conservation Valley ensures that a respect is kept for the natural inhabitants of this land.

The security of residents is of utmost importance and an experienced team of guards are found at the main entrance, monitoring the perimeter wall (with electrified fencing) and patrolling the estate in the evenings. As one of the fastest selling estates in the history of KwaZulu-Natal real estate, its little wonder that homes in Plantations are rarely on the market for very long.
