Moving to the coast

25 January 2022

Semigration is a reality...

South Africans are increasingly moving to coastal towns. This is about the benefits of living in well-run estates like New Salt Rock City, where  funds are used to invest in the community and the infrastructure. 

 Security and the overall quality of life for their residents is non negotiable. These benefits have become increasingly important to property owners and buyers, and are a much bigger factor in home purchase decisions now than before.

According to the latest statistics from property data company Lighstone, there have been scores of property transfers in KZN towns. Families relocating from inland choose a coastal location. But there are also some excellent and more affordable buying opportunities in our Estate New Salt Rock City with just a very short drive from the sea and the airport. Our estate is one kilometre away from the sea and our forests are part of our life here. Land is especially cut to allow families to be in nature and private.

The accelerated switch to remote working over the past two years and the resulting 'great migration" from big cities to smaller country and coastal estates is also driving a significant increase in the number of people who are buying stands and building their own homes, particularly in New Salt Rock City and MT Richmore.

I think this new norm forced all of us to stop and think about our values and believes. Working from home is now in full force. Airport for commuting is only 15km away! Mom does not have to be a taxi driver most of the day. Not even have to leave the estate at all. Having great security and other children that are also walking to school make it a very safe and old school. Build your dream house exactly according to your family`s needs. Where would you find another estate that offers free hold land where the children walk to our MT Curro private school.  Not to mention our own high end shopping centre New Salt Rock shopping centre.Woolworths, Checkers and Clicks with doctors rooms, Phase 2 for the extention of the mall is already in the making. Hiking trails, cycling, walking, bird watching! And on top of it all, the best beaches are  1 km away!

Home is the most popular, and will be the most enduring of all earthly establishments.......come and build a home where memories are happening daily!




Life by the sea.

You now have the perfect excuse to move to the coast. A study by the University of Exeter in the UK found that people who live less than a kilometer from the coast are 22 percent less likely to have symptoms of a mental health disorder compared with those who living in cities.  It is the sound of crashing waves, the sand beneath your feet, perhaps the clear blue colour of the water that helps improve your overall mood. 

Being in nature, a place you feel safe, will lower your blood pressure and stress hormone levels. Likewise spending time at the beach can lessen anxiety and nervous system arousal, which is what makes you feel stressed and anxious. 

It turns out that waves from the ocean generate negative ions in the air, which are associated with a increase in mental energy, among other benefits, There is a reason why "chilling out" "letting hair down" and catching a breather are among popular  terms people use when they talk about going to the beach  It is clear why so many studies support the notion that people living at the beach are less stressed.

In recent years, doing yoga and other exercises at the beach has beome very popular.Not only do you get your dosis of Vitamie D, which is a nutrient that contributes to healtier bones and a stronger immune system. It was found that immersing in cold water several times per week led to higher white blood cell counts. Th saltwater is loaded with minerals that boost skin elasticity and encourage moisture. On top of that, the salt and sand act as natural exfoliation.

 Living close to the beach and in a secure Estate like New Salt Rock City must be the ultimate lifestyle for anybody in South africa.
