Eco living

“We have a responsibility to leave for future generations a planet that is healthy and habitable by all species.” —David Attenborough


Dense coastal forest makes up 150 hectares with dune forest covering another 70 hectares. Enjoy easy and private access to one of South Africa’s most pristine beaches.

Living side by side with animals such as oribi, duiker, impala, waterbuck, tortoises, wild cats, and a host of local birds from Knysna turacos to double collared sunbirds is a reality when you invest in the Kenton Eco Estate. This is because only 12% of the entire Kenton Eco Estate will ever be developed and homeowners undertake not to have walls or fences separating their properties.



330 plots are grouped in 4 distinct village settings


Plots measure approximately 800 – 850 square metres


Only 12% of the estate will ever be developed


Approx 200 plots have been bought – 60%

Soft street lighting from bollards that minimise light pollution

“We need to reach a balance where people, habitat, and wildlife can co-exist – if we don’t everyone loses!” —Steve Irwin


In line with a commitment to being an eco estate in the truest sense of the word, the architectural guidelines advocate the use of sustainable local materials and aim to conserve water and optimise energy usage.

The palette of colours aims to blend in as far as possible and create the illusion of shadows rather than imposing facades that will jar with the landscape.

No boundary walls are permitted to maintain the integrity of the paths and spaces used by the wild animals in the area.

Formal gardens are contained in courtyard areas, to preserve as much of the natural vegetation as possible.

Where required, the rehabilitation of natural bush is energetically pursued together with an ongoing eradication of alien vegetation.

The design guidelines incorporate only indigenous planting – where planting will take place – to minimise irrigation and other associated and unnecessary expenditures of energy reserves.

Solar geysers are preferred and encouraged.

Rainwater is a vital resource. Each residence is required to have an underground rainwater water storage tank with minimum capacity of 50 000 litres.

“It’s the little things that citizens do. That’s what will make the difference. My little thing is planting trees.” —Wangari Maathai
