The complete conceptualisation, master planning and detail design of Thesen Islands, Pezula Private Estates and Belvidere Estate. These projects stretched over a period of more than 20 years. All have been successfully developed, sold and today collectively represent some of the most successful economically and environmentally sustainable developments in South Africa
The website provides the information required to acquire a stand. This process enables the purchasers to reserve a stand upon which his unit may be built, ahead of signing an agreement of sale for the stand.
Our onsite sales centre is open seven days a week. At the onsite sales centre, the project may be viewed, further information is made available and stands may be purchased.
The bordering farms to the West are owned by the Puttergill family who have been farming there for generations and are well known for their nationally acclaimed Holstein Stud.

Yes. Potable water will be supplied from the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s Summit pipeline.
Water for agriculture can be derived from legally allocated water rights out of the Van Stadens River. A new dam has been approved and built to retain additional water for the new land to be irrigated. A full water balance report has been drawn up by our agricultural engineers.
In addition, CFV has built a state of the art sewer treatment plant and all water flowing out of the plant will be further polished through a man made wetland where after it will be returned in the irrigation water cycle.
Electricity will be supplied directly from ESKOM to the development.
The project is managed and coordinated by a management committee, comprising of Chris Mulder, Lester Day (chair) and Gerhard Esterhuyse, a shareholder and successful businessman. The current professional team is detailed on the professional team page of the website.
The current farm has been subdivided into two major components:
A development section, where all the housing, commercial and industrial sites will be developed.
A farming or agricultural section, set aside for exclusive farming operations (similar to a golf course on a golf estate), except in our case our fairways and greens consist of 120 Ha of organic pastures where our “club members”, consisting of almost 500 Stud Holstein cows, can eat chemical free grass 24 hours a day.
Our “club house” will be a state of the art milking parlour and our pathways (traditionally used for golf carts in a golf estate) will, in our case, be dedicated, designed pathways for the cows to walk to the milking parlour and back every day. These pathways will not conflict with normal roads in the development.
