Construction on the new community centre at Kindlewood Estate, being developed by Tongaat Hulett immediately south of the Mount Edgecombe Country Club Estates, will commence shortly and was officially launched on Wednesday, 18 March 2014.

Residents who attended the sod turning were enthusiastic about the facilities that have been included in the design.  The new centre will provide exclusive leisure facilities for the 570 discerning families who will ultimately occupy Kindlewood when Phase 4  of the 140 hectare estate is fully developed.

The large leisure facility will look out onto Phase 4 of the development.  A lap pool leads off the centre building with a fenced children’s play area and tennis court.

The design for the community centre was initiated via a competition which was then finalised by the residents committee. Residents have already suggested additions that will be considered in the future.

“It is in keeping with the estate’s modernised Natal verandah style of architecture which embraces clear, linear and elegant elements,” said Mondli Msani Development Manager of Tongaat Hulett Developments. “Large wrap-around verandahs are a feature of every home, encouraging outdoor living, and the earthy facebrick and green roofs with cream walls complement the natural landscape.”

The spacious, fully-equipped community centre opens onto a lush lawn where residents can relax next to the sparkling swimming pool or make their way down a gentle slope via a paved pathway to the tennis court on the level below.  A gracious verandah offers fine views of the estate with its eco corridors and picturesque wetland featuring extensive bird life.

“The community centre will be the heart of the Kindlewood Estate and a key element of the tranquil lifestyle it offers,” said Msani.

“The serene ambience is enhanced by the peace of mind offered by electrified perimeter fencing, camera surveillance and 24/7 gate monitoring.  The management committee believe the centre will further enhance the community lifestyle which is growing from strength to strength at Kindlewood.
