Umhlanga’s R1bn Enigma Private Estate officially breaks ground


Enigma Private Estate, in KwaZulu-Natal’s Umhlanga area, has officially broken ground.

“We are delighted to see this incredible project get underway,” said Stefan Botha, director of Rainmaker Marketing. “The civils infrastructure is expected to be complete by the end of November and the first transfers are anticipated to take place as soon as December this year. This means by early 2019, we can look forward to seeing the first homes under construction.”

Stands sell from R3,5m to R7,5m, and offer sea views, with Ridgeside being developed as a top-end, mixed-use node, according to Chris du Toit, commercial director at Tongaat Hulett Developments.

“With the prime location, easy accessibility to world-class amenities and the contemporary lifestyle on offer at Enigma Private Estate, we have seen captains of industry secure their place within this modern estate,” said Botha. “The year began on a positive note with a record R30m in sales achieved in one week. Thereafter, the positive momentum has continued, and we look forward to this next milestone generating more positive interest for the estate.”
