Ready to semi-grate and live the life of your dreams?

If the last couple of years have taught us anything, it’s the importance of open spaces, freedom and quality of life. Fairview Estates, just outside of Ballito offers this … and so much more.

There is something incredibly special about traditional, farm living. With a wholesome, nature-based lifestyle, wide open spaces large enough for pets (big and small) and ‘free-range’ children to run wild, Fairview Estates is all about freedom – the way it used to be.

Fairview farmers can live off-the-grid and enjoy sustainable ‘farm-to-fork’ living, growing their own produce and living off their land, all within a secure, eco-conscious development just outside Ballito. The 480-hectare estate offers smallholdings from 2-hectares (20,000m²) and is surrounded by a best-in-class security fence, 24-hour manned gatehouse and access control, providing a safe environment for the community of farmers and their families to experience the freedom of living with boundless open spaces.

Simultaneously, Fairview Estates’ centralised location means a short 10 minute trip to retail, healthcare, education and recreation and a 15 minute trip to get to the airport and or the beach. So you can live the farm life and still have the convenience of being ‘in town’.

Surrounded by farmlands and with the estate itself being home to extensive nature trails, Fairview Estates offers farmers and their families a range of top-quality shared facilities, including horse trails, running, hiking and mountain biking trails and two catch-and-release dams with picnic sites.



Established with a sustainable, farm ethos, owners at Fairview Estates have the opportunity to join the Macadamia Co-op where they can enjoy a small-to-medium-scale commercial farming venture, planting and harvesting macadamia nuts on their smallholding. This allows for the inexperienced farmer to benefit from additional revenue generation while an experienced farm manager takes care of the farming. Investor Wessel Wessels grew up on a farm and, joining the wave of those ‘semigrating’, left the bustle of Johannesburg four years ago in search of a lifestyle closer to nature. “Fairview Estates offers us so much more than a piece of land. The macadamia orchard provides an investment for our retirement and to sustain the farm. While I know nothing about macadamia farming, the team are very impressive and immediately made me feel confident that this is an excellent investment. The initiative will also create jobs and feed families, something that is needed now more than ever.”

Live with freedom
