From the City Hustle to this Country Retirement Resort Haven

Magaliesburg

Property Description

Come and experience nature and tranquil open spaces in this well planned 95 hectare Retirement Resort-like Estate on the fringes of Magaliesburg and the Cradle of Humankind. Where rainbows await …

With its many recreational activities and superb facilities to ensure seamless transitioning from the hustle to this haven, you will look far and wide to find its equivalent.

There are 139 beautifully designed face-brick homes in groomed gardens and indigenous parkland which includes savannah fields and bird-haven forest.

This is the only one of eight 1-bedroom homes available FOR SALE in the estate. Very spacious open plan living area and kitchen which leads to the enclosed patio, the open patio and gardens. Large bedroom with loads of built-in cupboards and 1 bathroom. You will find a storage room off the kitchen. Large pantry cupboard in the lounge and a single garage with storage shelves.
The houses are available for purchase under a shareblock scheme, which means that Golden Harvest is owned by its shareholders, the owners of the houses. There is no transfer duty payable when a house is purchased and houses change hands at market-related prices. The price of the house includes a fee of six percent, payable by the seller, and a fee of one percent, payable by the purchaser, which is used to fund improvements to the resort.

In order to be eligible to purchase a house at Golden Harvest, a person must be over the age of fifty-five and in good health. In the case of couples, only one must be over the age of fifty-five. For a nominal annual fee, a person may join the waiting list and when a house becomes available, those who have been on the waiting list the longest will be contacted and invited to view the property. There is no obligation to buy and those who are not yet ready to purchase will not lose their places on the waiting list.

SERVICES

Security:
Security is of prime importance to Golden Harvest. There is only one entrance to the estate where all visitors are screened and signed in.

The entrance is manned 24/7 and it is provided with electrical gates and cameras. The perimeter fence is supplied with alarm sensors which are linked to the security control room and at night the perimeter is patrolled by guards and dogs. In addition each resident is supplied with a panic button which links directly to the control room.

Fire-fighting equipment is kept on-site for first line response on the exterior wall.

Overnight Accommodation:
Two large double rooms, each with its own bathroom, are available for hire for overnight guests, should you not have enough space in your home. Bed linen, towels, coffee and tea are provided and meals may be taken at the dining room.

Tuck shop:
The so-called ‘tuck shop’, in reality a mini supermarket, provides a range of groceries. Fresh milk and bread is delivered daily whilst fresh veggies, fruit and eggs are delivered on a weekly basis. A variety of frozen goods are available as well as a large selection of dried and tinned foods. The shop is run by the Ladies Fundraising Organisation of Golden Harvest and any profits go towards the funding of various charitable projects at Golden Harvest, in particular projects at the Frail Care Centre.

Chapel:
The beautiful chapel holds a variety of Christian denominational services every month and everyone is welcome to attend. It is used on a rotational basis by several Christian faiths, such as Methodist, Anglican and Roman Catholic. An organist is available for services.

Garden of Remembrance:
Golden Harvest also has a Garden of Remembrance where residents can sit peacefully to remember loved ones.

Shuttle bus:
On week-days the shuttle service provides daily transport to the Magaliesburg village, where there is a Super-Spar, a chemist and a post office amongst various other shops and the large minibus goes to one of the big Malls on a Tuesday. Off-site day trips to places of interest are organised on a regular basis.

DSTV package:
Golden Harvest has negotiated a DSTV package at an advantageous price that includes the most popular sports, news and entertainment channels.

Internet:
There is a Vodacom tower on the Estate, thus ensuring that we always have a good internet connection.

Borehole water:
Golden Harvest does not have municipal water. Instead we are privileged to have two very deep boreholes that access water which has been filtered through many kilometres of dolomite before it reaches us. It couldn’t be fresher, but the water is professionally tested on a regular basis just to make sure.

SPORT AND ACTIVITIES

Golf:
For the experienced golfer, club days are Wednesday and Saturday mornings when a full set of 18 holes, or should we say 19, are played. Beginners, or those with less time to spare, are welcomed on Monday and Thursday morning for 9 holes.

Bowls:
Golden Harvest has a very active bowls club and the green is kept in mint condition. Afternoon play ends in a friendly drink at the club bar.

Croquet:
This is a lively group and all newcomers are made to feel at home immediately. The croquet lawn is a green oasis underneath spreading trees close to the entrance to the estate.

Swimming:
A large swimming pool is available for the use of all residents and their guests. Because there are many small children coming to visit, the pool is fenced and there is a security lock. The pool area is a tranquil oasis to soak up some sun or cool off in the afternoon heat.

Walking trails:
A popular pastime is strolling through the convoluted lanes of the village, past the many small parks in the estate and meeting people for a quick chat. For those who want a longer walk, a wander across the golf coarse, past the orchard and the koi-pond and small herds of Blesbuck and Springbok is an option for the serious hiker. A jog along one of the many tracks crossing the estate will give you a good workout. For those who prefer cycling you have the option of 11 km paved and unpaved roads to cycle through the estate.

Hairdresser:
With an on-site hairdresser to look after you, here you have no excuse for having a bad hair day. A Manicurist/Pedicurist visits the Clinic on Mondays, treatments by appointment

Library:
If reading is part of your daily activity we have a library with a great variety of books as well as a big assortment of puzzles where building a puzzle becomes a social pastime.

Overnight Accommodation:
If you are having friends or family visiting you and you do not have enough space for everyone you can have them stay over in our guest rooms at nominal rates.

CLINIC AND FRAIL-CARE

Golden Harvest is justifiably proud of its first rate Clinic and Frail-care facilities. The Clinic is a separate legal entity, a wholly owned subsidiary of Golden Harvest, and is run by specialized nursing sisters who are dedicated to the care and comfort of the Clinic residents. The Clinic has both single and double rooms, some of which have en-suite bathrooms, and a high-care ward. Every room looks out onto the beautiful gardens that surround the Clinic, so that any residents who are bed-ridden can benefit from the tranquil view. The Clinic can accommodate thirty-five residents, including five in high-care. Priority is given to Golden Harvest residents needing temporary or permanent care, but the Clinic also admits people from outside the resort.

The physical, mental and spiritual well-being of the Clinic residents is of paramount importance to Golden Harvest. The Clinic is the home of the residents and they are free to receive visitors at any time during the day either in their own room or in the communal facilities; to invite their guests to lunch in the dining room, to sit peacefully in the lovely gardens attached to the Clinic or to watch TV or socialise in the lounge together.

In addition to Frail-Care, post-operative care is available and residents are welcome to book themselves into the Clinic for short stays if necessary. There are seven assisted-living bedsitters close to the Clinic and although the occupants of these bedsitters are able to live more independently than the residents of the Clinic, all meals, cleaning, laundry and other services are provided for them

ADDITIONAL HEALTHCARE FACILITIES:
Emergency assistance is available 24/7 for all residents of Golden Harvest.
The resort is within easy travelling distance of a number of hospitals, including Pinehaven Hospital near Cradlestone Mall, Krugersdorp Private Hospital and the Sir Albert Medical Centre in Randfontein, amongst others.
A number of pharmacies, including two local ones in Magaliesburg, deliver supplies as requested and several laboratories collect and deliver.
Crutches, walkers, oxygen bottles and other equipment is available for hire at a nominal fee.
Golden Harvest has a visiting doctor, a general practitioner, who visits Golden Harvest in the mornings, Monday to Thursday and this doctor is also on emergency call 24/7, but the residents are able to receive visits from other doctors and specialists as they choose.
You can visit the Clinic for small procedures such as changing dressings, blood pressure tests or injections.
A panic button system which ensures 24 hour emergency response.

All that said, the only thing left to do is to call me for a personalised viewing tour so you can experience the warm country hospitality and beautiful landscape for yourselves.
