As a premier lifestyle destination, Rolling Hills Estate includes large free-hold stands, from 2000sqm each, and sectional title units ranging between 2 and 4 bedroom units. A wide variety of outdoor activities and facilities include trout fishing, hiking, mountain biking and bird watching.

"Basil Read has truly embraced a forward-thinking vision for Rolling Hills Estate – offering prime real estate and a greener lifestyle for South Africans. The entire estate is designed in harmony with the environment. The unique wetlands and rocky outcrops are well protected. The use of water and energy is aimed at long-term sustainability. This together with promotion of suitable waste management, building material and technology will limit the carbon footprint of the estate and enhance its natural appeal

An eco-village within the estate is planned to be established where homes will be completely self-reliant from electricity grids, and water and sanitation networks.

Set against the Steenkampsberg mountains, the estate is also home to 200 species of wild flowers and 150 species of birds, making it ideal for bird watchers. It also is home to the Grey Rhebok, African Wild Cat and Blesbok and three species of the endangered South African Cranes. Of course, a major attraction is trout fishing and Rolling Hills features well-stocked and managed trout dams, as well as natural streams and fountains. The estate is ideally suited for trout fishing, hiking, trail biking, horse riding, and high altitude sports training.

To ensure this pristine environment is protected, the best in green solutions and eco-friendly designs have been incorporated into every aspect of the estate. Rolling Hills Estate will be strictly managed according to the prescribed Environmental Management Plan.
