Completed Commercial Project | Hesketh Estate Phase 1.

February 15, 2024


Does the name ring a bell? That’s because Hesketh Estate in Lincoln Meade, Pietermaritzburg is centred around what used to be the iconic Roy Hesketh Circuit, a former motor racing venue that was hugely popular in the mid to late 1900s. In this ideal location, which offers both the nearby convenience of the city and access to a 70-hectare nature conservancy (a world away from the race-day hubbub and exhaust fumes of yesteryear), Phase 1 of the brand new Hesketh Estate has just been completed.

Phase 1 consists of a set of 225 chic, modern apartments named Ducati (spot the reference to the racing world), along with a private clubhouse. In due course, further residential units as well as a proposed shopping complex – Hesketh Lifestyle Centre ­– will complete the all-in-one secure gated community with a dynamic and energising live-work-play-shop vibe.

Property developers Nico and Leon van Rooyen of VRG Properties, along with Terri Roetz of EPA Architects, reached out to Italtile KZN’s Commercial Agent, Nadia Moodley, for assistance with the selection of top-quality taps, sanware, showerware, sinks and tiles.

Nadia Moodley chose a range of sustainably manufactured products exclusive to Italtile, from their trusted suppliers. Her focus was bringing Italtile’s signature eco-chic style to life in every apartment, which encompasses lasting beauty, practicality, functionality and sustainability, all built into products designed to hold their value and offer an attractive ROI.
