More about the estate & its history

MECCE 2 - Estate

Mount Edgecombe Country Club Estate comprises three entities: the Country Club, Estate One and Estate Two. Estate Two is the larger and younger of the two golfing estates. Each estate has its own 18-hole golf course amidst the pristine green-roofed residences, and the entire complex is fenced and gated with stringent access controls in place. State-of-the-art security ensures peace of mind for residents and facilitates safe open-door living.

Estate Two is located in the pulse of Mount Edgecombe in close proximity to Umhlanga’s premium shopping malls, beautiful beaches and private schools. The N2 highway also allows for convenient travel to the airport and other destinations.

Estate Two is split into nine villages, each named after famous golf courses in America: Bellerive, Cherry Hills, Crystal Downs, Greenbrier, Kingwood, Merion, Pinehurst, Quail Valley and Southern Hills.

The estate is a conservancy, which is another draw-card for outdoor family living. Walkers, joggers and cyclists enjoy the freedom of a secure estate in a natural setting. For nature lovers, there are short family-friendly trails frequently visited by the estate’s wildlife, such as impala, blue duiker and bushbuck. The estate also boasts several beautiful dams with an abundance of birdlife, from purple and giant heron to fish eagle and steppe buzzard. The conservancy is also nurtured by Environmentally Protected Areas and alien vegetation control.
