Please note that this document must be consulted prior to commencing the design of any property improvements or building proposals and the giant’s view estate homeowner’s association (t.c.e.h.o.a.) to be consulted.
Giant’s View Estate represents a totally unique architectural concept living in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
The estate is partially surrounded by permanently underdeveloped wetlands protecting the Mooi River, and suitably planned to enhance panoramic views of the Drakensberg.
Architectural character is usually derived from buildings responding to the climatic conditions of their environment. The Midlands experiences significant temperature variations, and the use of large weather protected verandas, while enjoying the panorama, are encouraged.
Farm buildings historically develop and grow with demand as families require additional space resulting in articulated buildings of differing form and roofing elements, creating private courtyards and patios often well protected from the prevailing climatic conditions.
The purpose of this document is to ensure that the vision of a unique, secure environment and signature architecture is realized and successful.
Please note that prior to submitting plans to the relevant controlling authority, all property owners will be required to submit plans to the Giant’s View Estate Homeowners Association and will be required to comply with the submission guidelines as prescribed by the Estate.
