MOUNT Verde Estate, Hilton, is an unique estate made up of 30ha freehold farms within a secure gated 2700ha estate. It enjoys intensive farming operations such as Protea cultivation for the export market, essential oils, sugar and timber.

It is located in the heart of the Midlands, high in the green forested hills overlooking the province’s capital, Pietermaritzburg. At an altitude of 1100m, the cool south-facing slopes offer the ideal combination of deep, well- drained humic soils with regular and abundant rainfall.

If quiet secure country living is what you are after, then join the select few in this exclusive and stunningly luxurious community.

Each 30ha division has been carefully plotted to encompass the wide open spaces, beautiful landscape and expansive space for the growing family and farmer.

Architecture is in perfect harmony with its natural surroundings, a community that embraces the notion of connectivity and family traditions. This farming estate is the ideal place for families to call home. Learning to appreciate every moment, slowing down, and reflecting on family living and creating memories which will be a legacy in generations to come.

With rising property prices in Hilton, Mt Verde offers 30ha farms for just under R3 million. This is just R100 000 per ha. Land prices within Hilton, particularly on the Hilton College Road, are reaching prices of R1m per ha. Mt Verde Estate must be one of the best kept secrets in Hilton, offers security and internal infrastructure, at way below the market value. In fact comparatively the 30ha freehold smallholding would fetch a land price of between R15m to R30m within Hilton.

This estate is found just off from the Hilton off-ramp, below Garlington Estate, and stretches right through to Ottos Bluff, Albert Falls. All freehold agricultural farms in the estate are sold, with three resales currently available. The Wildlife Sanctuary, on the north-western aspect of the estate, enjoy 30ha game farms, and have 5 available sites.

Phone Brigid on 079 493 9864, to view these sites, before the true market value is realised and land prices increased. - Brigid Scheuer, Infoprop Real Estate, BLS Agencies, sales and marketing, Hilton Health.
