Family Fun Day 101 Acutts

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.




101 HOA Chair’s report for 2017

The Annual General meeting of the 101 Acutts Home Owners Association was held on Thursday 9th March 2017. The report submitted by the Chair of the Association, Craig Bruton, can be found here.

Chairman’s Letter;

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen,
I would like to thank each of you for your attendance this evening ; for taking time out of your busy schedules and showing committed interest in this increasingly successful estate, or home if you prefer.

I would also like to thank the fellow directors and volunteering members for their time, effort and expertise that they have devoted to the affairs of the Homeowners Association In what has been an eventful and taxing period.

Further thanks to our Managing Agents for their help and guidance along the way.
The past few years have seen 101 Acutts transforming from infancy, through some tough
transitional stages, edge towards critical mass, and now settling into a groove that will see it through to ultimate completion.

To give some idea of growth path, consider the number of land transfers per year as below: 5No in 2012 /8No in 2013 / 13No in2014 / 17No in 2015 / 22No in 2016 / 21No pending transfer Iin 2017, to date (with many more sales expected this year).

This upwardly moving trendline is indicative of an estate that ha.s grown in stature and prestige, and becoming increasingly sought-after in the open marketplace. This is no mean feat considering the competition that we are amongst, with a lot of impressive estates in very close proximity.

The trendline is also indicative of a suburb that is becoming increasingly sought-after. With the completion of the dual carriageway along lnanda Road, Watercrest Mall, Curro School, and numerous other positive developments happening or planned for Hillcrest, an estate home is this region is a very solid investment.

We have a very exciting future ahead, and It will be very rewarding to see how the estate continues to expand, mature, and flourish in the years to come. In order to achieve these goals, we require buy-in from the Members, who all need to pull in the same direction, and chip in with help where required. So we really encourage everyone to put up their hands when needed, respect the conduct codes, and generally have a mindset
that progresses and enhances the development of this estate.

With this said, we move onto the highlights of the year …. hopefully this list will get longer and longer with each passing year, as the estate moves to becoming one of the best in the region.

Year end at 101


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.

Krantzkloof Nature Reserve

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.



Artist’s impression of sectional title scheme

We envisage 2-bed apartments and 3-bed duplexes, built to similar design code that defines our estate.

Environmental revival of 101 Acutts

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!
