For the new generation.

Today’s achiever family aspires to a lifestyle that differs markedly from that of previous generations. Instead of the endless commuting, they want to live in a convenient but vibrant urban setting that is close to work and within easy reach of all the amenities such as shopping malls, restaurants, educational, recreational and technical facilities that enhance a contemporary urban lifestyle.

Koelman 163 is such a pioneering residential development in Ashlea Gardens in Pretoria. Situated within the Menlyn Maine node to the east and bordering on the Club Centre, the Pretoria Country Club and the Hazelwood precinct to the west, it is ideally located in the centre of the fastest growing urban hub in South Africa.

At the same time, the homes themselves are designed to provide sophisticated settings for celebrating the best traditions in family living. Some features of these innovative and exciting packages can be appreciated by taking a virtual tour through a typical home.
