KEY REAL ESTATE PROJECTS
We knew from the word go, twenty/ thirty years ago that land was and would remain very important to any economic activity because everything is anchored on the Land; agriculture, housing, factories, cities, mines, transport, energy, tourism to name but a few.
Our projects operate on private land, bought and titled. Even at the height of our country’s land reform program where agricultural land was being offered by the Government for no payment, we take pride in having decided before and even at that time, that we would actually purchase (on a willing-buyer willing-seller basis) all our land properties through such loans as from Barclays Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, and others.
That is the backbone of our vision: stable land ownership without conflict or come-back issues. Against that background, we have worked hard over the years to get Local City approval for top-notch housing projects. With the anticipated return home of many Zimbabweans (estimated at 4million) in the diaspora and general demand for the same from resident investors and others, demand for quality, first-world type housing with reliable energy and water supplies, adequate amenities including security and eco-friendly living, is high now and also bound to remain very high for the foreseeable 30 to 50 years to come.

As an Eco Estate, Sunlands will take a cue from the natural environment right from the planning stages and incorporate sustainable design principles show. The development will flow according to the natural topography of rolling hills maximising the potential for natural indigenous forests streams and lakes. Mountain biking and walking trails will weave their way through the open conservation areas. The Estate’s architecture will follow a low density theme, positioning homes on generously proportioned erven.

Living on the Estate brings countless sport and leisure options - all within walking distance. Residents will be able to explore the wetland and forest trails, watch the beautiful birds of Harare, or cast a line in one of the many lakes around the estate.
