The 128-hectare Brackenridge Estate is divided into five areas, or phases: Erica Heath, Protea Dale, Watsonia Heights, Bitou Glade and Orchid Valley.

 The 280 stands, with an average size of 1 500m² each, are nestled in indigenous vegetation including fynbos, leaving plenty of open space for natural vegetation. Several nature trails offer opportunities to appreciate the fresh air, sense of freedom, indigenous birds, small animal life and plants which occur throughout the estate.

Homeowners are secured by strict access control measures as well as personal security patrols and a 6km state-of-the-art electrified perimeter fence. The Brackenridge community also has its own water supply from its borehole, supported by a first-class water filtering and processing system, which allows Management to augment resident’s water supply as and when needed.
