Estate living has continued growing in popularity as one of the leading residential property trends in South Africa. According to a report, released by Lightstone Property in 2016, estates made up a mere 5.1% of the total property market, yet impressively owned 15.1% of the overall property market value.
Two years later, Lightstone released another presentation that noted an upward trajectory in this trend. As of June 2018, estate properties made up 6.2% of the total property market volume and 17.5% of the overall market value.
Similarly, this growth is booming in the KZN Dolphin Coast, where many secure lifestyle estates have been and are being developed.
In another release by Lightstone, two Dolphin Coast estates stood out above the rest. The Zimbali Coastal Resort and Simbithi Eco Estate were named as some of the most exclusive and high growth estates in the entire province.
Boasting some of the most sought-after lifestyle attributes, the estates found along the Dolphin Coast show no indication of slowing down any time soon.
Let's take a look at Dolphin Coast estates that are high in demand:
