The purpose of eco-estates development is to have as little impact on the building site as possible. Homes are designed with environmental architecture considerations and minimal landscaping in mind, to adapt to the surrounding space rather than changing it to suit construction plans.
Eco-estates serve to protect the environment around the development and reduce carbon footprint in addition to the lifestyle, privacy, and security provided by typical estate living.
Here are three more reasons to embrace eco-estate living:
- Healthy Lifestyle
By making the most of the beautiful African landscape and its natural treasures, eco-estates promote a healthy lifestyle inspired by the quality of these natural ecosystems, in stark contrast with the over-crowded, densely populated urban areas.
The health and well-being of residents are a priority in eco-estate living, with the focus on reducing pollution and carbon footprint, and minimising the use of resources associated with everyday living (water and electricity).
By design, eco-estates are often located outside the city limits, offering a more rural-type experience, secluded from the hustle and bustle of crowds and city noise. A healthy lifestyle and out-of-city natural living are tempting prospects for suburban resident buyers.
- Sustainable Space
Sustainability remains the main advantage of eco-estate developments and is evident in the use of energy-efficiency appliances and alternative power sources (solar and wind).
While most estates thrive on massive land areas and population density, eco-estates provide a more exclusive and private setting, limiting land usage, building units construction, and future developments that may affect the sustainability of the project.
This move also ensures that construction inconveniences and the resulting impact on the environment are kept to a minimum.
- Long-term Savings
Due to its green credentials, clever use of alternative energy resources, and the lack of artificial landscaping, eco-estates are less expensive to own and run over extended periods of time, offsetting the initial higher costs.
The above makes an attractive prospect for long-term investment, as eco-estate living combines the best of the security and privacy of gated estates with natural surroundings that often guarantee amazing views.
Aside from the good long-term ROI prospects, eco-estates are a great opportunity to own a contemporary piece of the green residential market, considering that the alternative of greening up an existing property often becomes a very expensive and less efficient exercise.
