Have you ever wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and have a home in a quiet beautiful farm-like setting?
A place where you and your family can feel safe, and your children can experience the freedom you had as a child?
With views of the Magaliesberg mountain range – the oldest permanent landmass on the planet – The Coves has been designed with meticulous attention to detail and care for the environment around natural features such as open farmland, streams, forest walkways and dams.
Only 40 minutes from Johannesburg and Pretoria.
The Coves is close enough to your office, family and friends and yet far enough away to feel like you have chosen country living.
Getting out within The Coves
While your youngsters are out and about with their friends on the estate, you can enjoy the views over our three pivots or take a walk through the forest and enjoy fantastic bird life with approximately 206 birds spotted on our ever growing bird list, you may be able to add a few. You could even try your hand at fishing in our catch and release Bass dam.
A sense of Community
The Coves is a community of people who have chosen a safe, family-friendly lifestyle above all else. Many retire in the estate and their children and grandchildren buy their first home here.
The Coves boasts a top quality private airstrip with 6 hangars, 103 boathouses and a waterfront with a private slipway and large waterfront area.
Mountain Biking and trail rides
Cyclists can ride the various bike tracks through our forest or perhaps master their skills on the pump track.
