Living At The Eye of Africa Golf & Residential Estate

The estate's vision is to create a vibrant recreational, social and community hub that will become the key destination and gathering space for Eye of Africa’s residential community. At Eye of Africa, the standard of living is only rivaled by the sense of community and facilities available to all residents.

All plans are reviewed by the Eye of Africa Architectural Review Committee to maintain aesthetic standards and ensure harmony of style while encouraging unique design and a sense of individuality. While, of course, each cluster has its own character, the architectural style, generally, is Afropean – a clean, refreshing look that combines contemporary European design with African flair and innovation.

Future Development: The Village Square

Perfectly positioned, The Village Square borders the magical pine forest of the Eye of Africa and will introduce a sense of new urbanism into the golf and residential estate.

This mixed-use space will feature hardware and grocery stores as anchor tenants, and also include beauty and wellness and general stores. With master craftsmanship and expert design elements envisaged, there are multiple selections to choose from in their line store configurations. The spacing ranges from 35m² to 600m².


The Village Square will also be made up of commercial office space, offering exciting business solutions to the local community.
