The objective of the developers of Garlington is to create the finest development in Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands. An holistic estate which provides a full range of houses from apartments ranging in size from 58m² to 180m², a central core based off the design elements of Stellenbosch with properties ranging in size from 300m² to 1000m² and outer lying ‘gentlemen’s retreats’ which are over a hectare.
It is important to the developers that the country feel of the area is retained. To do this, over half of the property has been kept as open spaces, allowing for horse-riding, hiking and mountain biking.
The architecture – one of the main features at Garlington finds its roots in the original Cape Dutch farmhouse built on the property in the 1800’s, as well as Hilton College just a couple of kilometers from Garlington.
