ARABELLA – COUNTRY ESTATE LIVING AT ITS FINEST
Located on the shores of the Bot River Lagoon, with panoramic views of the Palmiet mountain range, Arabella Country Estate is the perfect place to call home.
No longer the exclusive reserve of those in their golden years, Arabella Country Estate is an appealing alternative for younger families seeking to escape the growing stresses and congestion of city life. Located just 110km from Cape Town, commuting is a viable option, and the increasing trend towards mobile home offices is seeing more and more families opting for a more tranquil lifestyle.
The estate is one of few locations in the area to offer full fibre optic cabling ensuring high-speed Internet connectivity to all home owners who subscribe to it, meaning residents can easily set up a mobile home office.
Identified by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee as a biodiversity “hot-spot”, the area is home to more than 1600 fynbos species and abundant bird and animal life. With 236 spacious freehold properties and plenty of open spaces set on 113 hectares of pristine land, and with 1.6km of lagoon frontage, Arabella encourages an organic style of architecture using natural materials, slate roofs and subdued earth colours in harmony with the surroundings.
In 2017, for the first time in the history of the Estate, residents and visitors now have access to the Bot River Lagoon to use for non-motorised boating activities and lagoon fishing. A look-out deck situated right on the water’s edge, makes a breathtaking spot to have lunch or sundowners, and allows easy access to the water , storage of canoes, fishing, etc.
The Estate, in conjunction with the Arabella Hotel, have established extensive mountain biking and trail running routes on the land bordering the Estate on two sides, suitable for beginners to intermediates. These routes are exclusively open for use by Arabella residents and visitors only, allowing for exercising in a magnificent, secure setting.
