Montcalm in Zululami - a new era of estate living

Category New Development

Located a few hundred metres above Christmas Bay in Sheffield Beach, Montcalm in Zululami is a new 5ha boutique estate on the urban fringe of Salt Rock that is being fully integrated into Zululami Luxury Coastal Estate. Strategically located adjacent to the larger Zululami Estate, residents of Montcalm in Zululami will have access to all of Zululami's amenities whilst simultaneously enjoying a boutique living experience with an exclusive gatehouse entrance and a number of unparalleled sea-view sites.

This estate integration is not a new concept in estate development having been implemented both locally and nationally. Both Zimbali Beach Estate and Zimbali Coastal Resort followed this example as did Val die Vie and Pearl Valley in the Western Cape. These notable estates have all been hugely successful. Through mutual integration residents enjoy more facilities and amenities than they previously envisaged and it ensures the best infrastructure use for both current and future residents of the amalgamated estates.

A key driver of the planning was to enable residents to move around their own safe boutique environs as well as being able to access Zululami's wide open spaces, community clubhouses, elevated boardwalks, bird hides, and walking and cycling trails set within a wetland area, with as much ease as possible when desired. Montcalm in Zululami, via its enviable location, will also allow residents of Zululami to also enjoy easier beach access to Christmas Bay - one of Sheffield Beach's best kept secrets.

The natural resources of Montcalm in Zululami determined the course for the pattern of land use and occupation; setting the tone for a commitment to environmental preservation. The master plan ensures it is a low-density housing estate with a designated 30% site coverage and generous planting servitudes between each home. The design code successfully integrates sustainability into the homes, with a focus on green living as well as luxury. The homes will have a modern contemporary outline with linearity being a major factor to create a unified aesthetic. A minimum build size of 350 sq. metres is required and homes will include features that include large overhangs, green planted roofs, natural finishes that include, stone, wood and concrete; large glazed openings opening onto indigenous landscapes surrounds. Energy-efficient lighting and air-conditioning solar panels as well as water conservation measures, including storm water management on each site, must also be utilized in the design. An additional attractive attribute is that two dogs per household are very welcome.

With only 15 unsold fully serviced freehold sites still available on a sole mandate from Seeff North Coast, this harmonious development provides a perfect union of seclusion plus amenity accessibility. All of this will ensure that Montcalm in Zululami will be one of the most liveable spaces on the North Coast.
