Lock-Up-And-Go Living gears Up in Pietermaritzburg

Following the success of Phase 1, Hesketh Estate welcomes the release of it’s next phase of Ducati apartments and Mustang duplexes. As the leading development achieving a fast rate of sales monthly, Hesketh Estate’s lifestyle is driving this estate to success.

What is lock-up-and-go living?

A lock-up-and-go home is one which offers flexibility to homeowners, just as the name suggests. To be able to come and go with ease is a massive selling point for busy professionals, families and individuals with jam-packed schedules. Whether it’s your primary residence, investment property or second home, a lock-up-and-go home generally needs little maintenance, is secure and benefits from being in a sought-after and gated location.

The lifestyle that lock-up-and-go real estate offers is popular and it’s easy to see why. Being able to simply turn off the lights, lock the door and leave, without worrying about home maintenance or security is a great advantage. The peace of mind that comes from these kinds of living arrangements is oftentimes priceless, especially for people who travel for extended periods or for those who work outside of the home for long hours. As for investors, lock-up-and-go investment properties have become more and more popular as buyers realise the benefits of low maintenance, security and easy placing of tenants.

Why Hesketh Estate?

At Hesketh, buyers will find residences seamlessly blended with nature, history and modern conveniences. Its distinctive design, aesthetic and lifestyle have all been curated around the iconic Roy Hesketh Circuit, which was a leading racing venue until it closed in the 80s. The vibrant spirit of the motor racing world, the affluent and royal appeal of Monaco, as well as the drive to offer a distinctive experience unlike any other found in Pietermaritzburg, all combine to create a unique offering.

And, although this is an important part of its unique community culture and atmosphere, Hesketh is so much more than just race cars. It presents the ideal apartments and duplexes for those seeking lock-up-and-go residences, and here’s why:
