The estate is a stone’s throw away from Port Elizabeth – 12 minutes away from the airport, six minutes from the nearest shops and 15 minutes from the Port Elizabeth CBD. It is close to all residential comforts – schools, churches, gyms, medical centres, hospitals and shops. Because Sardinia Bay Golf & Wildlife Estate lies within the Port Elizabeth urban boundary, it enjoys all the facilities and benefits provided by an established municipality.
The Architectural Guidelines have been developed to create a platform for owners to express their individual lifestyles which embrace a diverse yet site sensitive-to-nature architectural expression. While it is the intention of this to create opportunities for freedom in expression, it is paramount that guidelines are adhered to which serve to protect the individual homeowners from inappropriate architecture that could negatively impact on the estate and the value to other home owners.
The architectural standard set by Sardinia Bay Golf & Wildlife Estate will strive to reflect a true South African lifestyle, a contemporary African interpretation of context, content, spatial requirements and identity. Within this sphere the estate seeks to achieve a responsible approach toward energy efficiency through competent design and material use. The estate encourages a re-thinking of the ordinary and an inspired reworking of the norm. Architectural responses to context, climate, orientation, form and style are to take priority and are to be the starting point of every design.
