Plantations of Hillcrest

47 Shongweni Road, Hillcrest, Durban, KwaZulu Natal, 3610


With every piece of land comes a piece of history and as time changes so they create history of our own. It so happened that the original farms in the Upper Highway area were once owned by the well known Gillitt Family and as time progressed these farms were subdivided and sold off, creating all the areas as they  know them today.

One beautiful piece of land remained and after it having been in the Gillitt Family for over 130 years this extraordinary 86ha sugar estate was finally sold to a developer with a vision who together with his fantastic team of architects and sales ladies created this unique "Old World" Tuscan village.

What was once an abstract vision has been made reality, resulting in one of the most beautiful lifestyle estates in South Africa. Hundreds of families have found their home in Plantations and enjoy the beauty and security of this magnificent Tuscan style estate.
