Where to Purchase Apartments in Pietermaritzburg?

Hesketh Estate, the fastest-selling development in Pietermaritzburg, has raised the checkered flag on Phase 1 of their apartment offerings, called Alfa. Following the sell-out success of Phase 1, with construction of about 225 apartments already underway and with handovers having already commenced, Hesketh Estate is ready to introduce Phase 2 offerings, with brand new apartments.


This new phase includes 2 and 3-bedroom apartments within this modern estate which offers plenty of room with the safety and security of the estate and convenience of the area. The apartments are fitted with modern finishes and designed to bring the outside into the home from your balcony or ground-floor garden.

The units are pet-friendly, which means your furry friends have a space to enjoy indoors and outdoors. There are plenty of lush outdoor spaces to take your pet for walks. The Ducati apartments are on-trend from a design perspective and offers the chance to live comfortably. The living rooms open out to fantastic views, making entertaining guests easy and enjoying family life effortlessly.


The numerous amenities and residents’ only facilities will keep everyone entertained and engaged over the weekend with free time an absolute pleasure for families. The Ducati apartments offer exclusive resident facilities, as well as access to the Hesketh Estate facilities.

  • Private clubhouse
  • Swimming pool
  • Braai areas
  • Kid’s play area
  • 24-hour security
  • Conservancy access
  • Proposed onsite shopping centre


The drawcard of Hesketh Estate is that it is ideally located, close to major amenities and at that, offers a secure, convenient lifestyle. One of the key benefits of making Hesketh Estate your home is that you have an onsite shopping centre right on your doorstep.

With distant views across the Pietermaritzburg landscape, the estate is adjacent to a 70-hectare conservancy area providing unlimited exploration for runners, walkers, cyclists and birders. It also has a nearby golf course, which allows residents to work hard and play hard. It’s an attractive option for those commuting to the area for work daily.

Hesketh Estate offers the ideal 15-minute lifestyle where all the necessary day-to-day necessities are less than 15-minutes away.

As an off-plan development, you will only need to pay a deposit of just R10 000 and then not pay transfer duty. Other benefits of purchasing off-plan, directly from the developer, you will be paying a low entry cost into the property market. While the development is being constructed you have time to save while your property increases in value.

Other than the full deposit, your bond repayments are only payable once transfer takes place. Once you do take transfer of your apartment, you will then live within a home that is new and requires little to no maintenance.


The strategic location also lends itself well to investment opportunities and with reputable developers and an eager market, Hesketh is a no-brainer worth getting in on early. The first phase within this secure estate sold out in record time and it included 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments.

With already built apartments within Phase 1 the rentals here start at about R7 500 a month. For a 2-bed, 1-bath apartment from R975 000, your projected rental income in the first year would be R10 500, with a 12.9% gross rental yield.

Jump start your property ownership by securing an apartment offering with only a R10 000 deposit. Find your groove with modern-day amenities part and parcel of the lifestyle on offer. Make Hesketh Estate your home.
