The Homeowners Association organised a fantastic fun day for families on Sunday 29th October. A jumping castle was generously donated by Seeff Estate Agents, which kept children amused all afternoon. The catering was lamb on a spit, and was divine. Over 100 adults and lots of children came together and there was a great sense of community. This is estate is really flourishing, providing a safe, family friendly sense of well being in an environment that is treasuring wide open spaces.
Details of plots that are still available can be found on the website here.
This is the most up to date view from Google Earth of 101 Acutts. It shows 50 occupied homes. What it does not show is the amazing amount of construction that is presently underway. Exciting times for those new home owners desperate for completion so they can come and move in to the best of country living. The ongoing construction is one of the small prices that those who have chosen to move into 101 face. Weekends are glimpses of tranquility. The end of the year shut down is a time when the estate becomes quiet for a while, allowing residents to better enjoy the holiday.
Construction officially shuts down on the 16th December and starts again 8th January. Which is a lovely time to come view the estate if you are thinking about buying here. The sales team are off between Christmas and New Year, however if you want to see what this wonderful estate has to offer you are very welcome either before or after that.

This lovely video shows many of the beautiful spots in Krantzkloof Nature Reserve. Many people, both those living in the area and those seeking to move here are not aware of the beauty which can be found right on our doorstep in Kloof.
Thanks to Maureen van den Bergh from Westville, who put the video together for KKNR, and to Maria Wareing, 101 Acutts resident, for posting to Facebook and drawing it to our attention.
Sneak Peak : we are getting really excited about an imminent launch of a Sectional Title scheme at 101 Acutts, which will be at the north eastern border of the estate. We envisage 2-bed apartments and 3-bed duplexes, built to similar design code that defines our estate. More details to follow over the next few weeks…..keep watch this space and keep checking at the sales website or at the facebook page for more details.
Alien Invaders such as Black Wattle and Blue Gum have become an increasingly invasive pest on the KZN landscape, wiping out pristine indigenous forest with their escalating exotic presence. These plants have a deep root system, and grow quickly, sucking out the nutrients from the soil and using any available water leaving little or no food or water for the other indigenous species trying to survive among them. As they push the indigenous plant species out, so the insect bird and animal life are compromised as their natural food sources are no longer available.
Comparing the landscape at 101 Acutts today to what is was in 2013, it is obvious that the undeveloped land previously planted with sugar cane but now standing vacant while the Estate is being built, is just leaving space for alien plant invaders to spread and take over and this will continue at this alarming rate until the development is complete.
To protect the environment of the 101 Acutts Estate, the developer has embarked on a massive eco-project eradicating the encroaching exotic species. The gum & wattle has been felled and transported to timber mills, leaving behind an indigenous forest which can now breathe in the sunlight and grow faster with the resultant increase in water, in turn supporting all the birds and insects in this natural environment.
Within a few short years, there should be a complete flora revival, along with a resurgence of the resident fauna – duiker, bushbuck, porcupine and rock hyrax amongst others – for the homeowners to enjoy. And there will be a beautiful 2.5km loop that can be enjoyed by the residents of 101 Acutts, proposed to be suitable for walking, running and moutain biking. What a pleasure to have all of that right on our doorsteps!

Taken using a quadcopter drone on 8th October 2015, this footage shows both the amount of progress in developing 101 Acutts, and the amount of open conserved areas that exist within the boundaries of the estate. It really shows the potential of the estate, country living at its best.
