Eastlands Mature Lifestyle Estate - The Road 'til Now

Post by: Eastlands Estate, 23 Feb 2021

In February 2016, we successfully broke ground at 101 Eastlands Drive. From the moment that the first shovel of dirt was lifted from the earth, our vision began to come to fruition.

The vision was a simple, yet innovative one – to provide quality estate living to over 50’s looking for a piece of paradise to call home. We realized that being over 50 isn’t the end of one’s story and that for many, their grandest adventures were only just beginning.

To support our residents in their newest chapter, we concluded construction of our magnificent lifestyle centre in the third quarter of 2017, which boasts both an indoor and outdoor pool, a stadium worthy bowling green, a fully equipped gym and health studio, a library brimming with both modern and timeless classics which have been donated by our residents over time, and a fully-stocked convenience store packed full with essentials, to name just a few features.

Because we established our little slice of heaven on the principle that our residents would call Eastlands home, we ensured that each unit available is offered as a sectional title. This is something that we are proud to say, sets our estate apart from many other mature living estates. When someone invests in the Eastlands lifestyle, they invest in their legacy!

We also established ourselves on the principle that while mature living does not mean assisted living, some of our residents would require a heightened level of care. To this end, we partnered with CareLife, which places an unparalleled focus on not only providing assisted living and frail care services but an all-around phenomenal quality of life. This includes meal plans created by specialist dieticians and prepared by world-class chefs, activities under the guidance of best-in-class trainers, and medical support offered by exceptionally skilled nurses who form personal relationships with those in their care.

To further provide an all-inclusive experience, we boast a hairdresser and beauty salon, restaurant, bar, and coffee shop, as well as laundry and cleaning facilities.

All this is found in a countryside-like setting, a mere 10 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport, where a special connection to nature is nurtured. This picturesque backdrop highlights perfectly our unwavering commitment to the standard of living that our residents enjoy.

You may be wondering why we are discussing our journey to date. Well, we are nearing another milestone in the Eastlands story! With only seven units left, our beautiful estate is almost at capacity. This means that, if you or a loved one would like to form part of our amazing story, you should reserve a spot today!

The reason that we are filling up fast is that more and more people in their later years are seeing the value of living in a secure estate, one which provides generously for their physical, emotional, and social needs. Furthermore, South Africans are currently enjoying a record low-interest rate, which is at the lowest it has been in over fifty years. With the lending rate at a mere seven percent, buyers can expect to cut thousands of Rands off their bonds monthly. If you are looking to invest in the Eastlands lifestyle, now is the perfect time to do it!

We are also writing this to say a special thanks to those who have helped to make Eastlands what it is today. From our nursing staff, who are unrelenting in their passion for their patients, to the estate staff who control the security, gardens, reception, and general maintenance, to our residents themselves, who have helped to create a culture so unfathomably wonderful that we wake up each day excited to completely immerse ourselves within it. Without those who have shared this journey with us, our dream of creating the best mature living estate in South Africa would have been a simply impossible task.

The only question left is; where to from here?

Well, our story certainly isn’t over! Though this chapter is closing, we now move onto an even more exciting era - one where we will continue to refine our distinct offering. We plan to continue to improve how our residents live and set a benchmark for other mature living estates, who will learn that mature living should be living-focused, and that assisted living should not feel medical, but rather like freedom, where the necessary support is always on hand.

If you are as excited about sharing this new phase of our journey with us as we are about having you with us, then request a showing by sending an email to info@eastlands.co.za.
