the true nature of the helderberg
The landscape surrounding Sitari Country Estate evokes strong feelings of nostalgia when one inhales the delightful fragrances of traditional Cape garden plants, such as heritage roses, irises and lavender. Vineyards and orchards with olives, limes, lemons, oranges, figs, pomegranates and pears further enhance the overall tranquillity one experiences when admiring Sitari’s striking landscape set against the picture-perfect Helderberg Mountains. To soften the landscape, informal groups of trees will be interspersed between the development and the N2 highway and R102 to form a soft screen, thus blending Sitari into its natural surrounds and ensuring privacy for residents and wildlife alike.
One of the most striking features of the entire Sitari landscape is the Central Formal Park Spine, which leads one along from the R102 to the Country Clubhouse. Smaller and more secluded areas feature attractive ponds, seasonal vegetable gardens, aromatic herb gardens, rose gardens, interesting pergolas, and tall hedges. Sitari’s developers are particularly proud of the fact that a deeper retention pond area will conserve water for Sitari’s irrigation purposes, and hope the estate will not rely on potable water for irrigation, thus achieving the original objective of sustainability.
Naturally, Sitari’s landscape also needs to be family and child friendly, and with this in mind, pathways that intersect the rich landscape were designed that parents and children can safely explore on foot or bicycle. Children may also wish to venture to the lovely play area where they can explore freely, having fun and making friends, as children should.
Indeed, bringing old Cape homestead nostalgia to your doorstep paired with modern-day conveniences and luxurious finishing touches, Sitari is the ultimate lifestyle estate, unlike any other in the Western Cape. So, imagine a life where people integrate seamlessly with wildlife and nature. At Sitari, this is not a dream, its reality.
