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

There are 280 stands, each with an approximate size of 1500m², all nestled in the indigenous fynbos vegetation leaving a delightful feeling of harmonious living in a relaxed Eco Estate. A few stands remain available for purchase, but when complete over 50% of the Estate will remain as open space, affording plentiful walking and bike trails throughout the entire development. Nature trails also offer an opportunity to quietly soak up a huge sense of freedom, as well as appreciating the indigenous birdlife, small animals and plants which occur throughout the estate.

Homeowners are protected by strict access control measures as well as personal security patrols and a 6km electrified perimeter fence. The Brackenridge community boasts its own water supply from its borehole, supported by a first-class water filtering system, which allows Management to augment Resident’s water supply as and when needed. A Rapid Response Security System operates 24/7, providing K9 armed response, thermal drones, dogs, and paramedic back up in case of emergency. There is a vehicle number plate recognition system for easy access for Residents, and all movements of domestic staff and all contractors are also strictly controlled. “We count them in, and we count them out” is our mantra.

The Garden Route has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Brackenridge prides itself in complimenting the aims of preserving and enhancing our Eco Estate. It appeals to those people who appreciate quiet elegant living, surrounded by nature, where the ethos is friendly and co-operative. We value the harmonious interaction between Neighbours where consideration of others is such a pre-requisite to our successful appeal. When you add in the proximity of our stunning six international Blue Flag beaches only a mere five minutes from the Estate, no wonder so many people continue to express a desire to come here.

Come and Join Us! We welcome people of all ages, and indeed Brackenridge provides a safe environment for families with small children too.
