Birdwood - Exclusive Residential Estate at Hartbeespoort Dam
From the moment you enter the Estate you will feel the timeless magic.
Here, where the Hartbeespoort Dam glitters vibrant prism colours at sunrise and mellows to subdued hues at sunset. And where the fish eagle's distinctive call sounds in the distance. Set amongst mature indigenous trees on the banks of the Hartbeespoort Dam. Birdwood Estate is cradled beneath the surrounding hills and cliffs of the ancient Magaliesberg Escarpment offering breathtaking views of the age-old mountains, which are mirrored in the tranquil lapping of the water. This is where man and nature come together in harmony.
Time, however, has seen the Hartbeespoort Area developing into one of the most up market residential areas in South Africa. It is widely spoken of, by some as the Monaco of South Africa and by others, as Switzerland without the snow.
the calming affect of the adjacent "no wake" area, the only designated breeding area for fish and birds at the dam, where pelicans come to rest before continuing their long migration flight - no boats, no noise!
friendly, interactive socializing at the luxuriously appointed, stonework Clubhouse erected exclusively for home owners in the Estate. Enjoy a cool sundowner on summer evenings on one of the spacious verandas whilst marveling at the sun playing on the water. The more energetic at heart can enjoy a workout on the squash- or tennis courts, in the swimming pool or at the gym.
the rich cultural history of the Hartbeespoort Dam. The dam is man made and was built in 1916. The dam wall with its historical Arc de Triomphe is today one of the very few dam walls left in the world still carrying public traffic.
