Why invest in real estate?

WHAT IS REAL ESTATE?

"I am the basis of all wealth, the heritage of the wise, the thrifty and prudent.

I am the poor man's joy and comfort, the rich man's prize, the right hand of capital, the silent partner of many thousands of successful men.

I am the solace of the widow, the comfort of old age, the cornerstone of security against misfortune and want. I am handed down to children, through generations, as a thing of greatest worth.

I am the choicest fruit of toil. Credit respects me. Yet I am humble. I stand before every man bidding him know me for what I am and possess me.

I grow and increase in value through countless days. Though I seem dormant, my worth increases, never failing never ceasing, time is my aid and population heaps up my gain. Fire and the elements I defy, for they cannot destroy me.

My possessors learn to believe in me; invariably they become envied.  While all things wither and decay, I survive. The centuries find me younger, increasing in strength.

The thriftless speak ill of me. The charlatans of finance attack me. I am trustworthy. I am sound. Unfailingly I triumph and detractors are disproved.

Minerals and oils come from me. I am producer of food, the basis for ships and factories, the foundation of banks.

Yet I am so common that thousands, unthinkingly and unknowingly, pass me by. I am real estate.

Eden Rock Estate

Architecture

There are two key concepts regarding the architecture at Eden Rock – the first is about addressing the environment (from a green perspective and by designing each home to uniquely address each individual site) and the second is about creativity.

Eden Rock is a unique development and we’d like to keep it that way, into the future. Sustainability isn’t just about financial longevity; it’s also about designing buildings that won’t date. You can download the architectural guidelines for a comprehensive overview of technical details, and a few examples.

But essentially, the architecture is unique, infusing modern technology with traditional thought processes and indigenous style ‚Äì the term ‘sensual design’ best outlines the focus on individualised designs that take each site’s individual fauna, flora, sounds, textures, orientation and slope into account.

The idea is not to merely create camouflaged homes, but designs that also complement the surrounding environment. This can be addressed by orchestrating horizontal and vertical lines that emulate the shadows and shapes of the forest and bush. Colours and textures can be used to soften or enhance specific lines, creating many-faceted elevations that almost dance within the space.
