This week we take you just north of Lanseria Airport, between Joburg, Tshwane and Mogale, to a 1 260 acre beautiful working farm to continue the eco-theme in response to COP17 being hosted on our shores.
Monaghan Farm is a simply stunning example of how going green in our homes is not only great for the environment but can also be luxurious and livable.
More about Monaghan Farm: Monaghan Farm is years ahead of the typical upmarket development. Its ethos is based on incorporating the environment – the natural environment as well as the people in surrounding communities who service and are dependent on the Farm – into a model of partial self-sustainability.
Reasons why you would enjoy Monaghan Farm: If you want to live in the country but need a connection to the city; have the convenience of a shopping mall 17km away and a plane to Cape Town only 15 minutes from your front door, yet don’t want to be fenced in; want to live on a farm with country club amenities – gym, pools, tennis and squash courts, business centre, a restaurant, and the best equestrian centre around with stables for 60 horses; have a modern infrastructure with traditional country values.
If you want to live in a natural environment where the homes are tastefully designed to blend into the landscape; own a spacious home and 4 500 sqm of that landscape; live on an estate with a natural garden the size of Manhattan’s Central Park and be protected in perpetuity from sub-divisions and unsightly, claustrophobic developments.
If you want to live in this African landscape with almost 7 km of Jukskei River frontage rolling through it, that has tree houses and scenic platforms at your disposal; co-own an estate where 10 acres is dedicated to the growing of organic produce, herbs, cut flowers and botanical gardens; enjoy a secure environment guided by an ethos of self-sustainability and giving back to the environment.
