Introducing Salta Sibaya

Published

on

The Devmco Group have worked on their latest innovation that aims to transform the Sibaya Coastal Precinct’s landscape from normal to extraordinary with a never-before-seen seaside neighbourhood, Salta Sibaya, which proudly sits above Umdloti and forms part of the precinct holistic development plan.

Salta Sibaya will set the precedent for how South Africans will live in the future within a vibrant mixed-use development. The developers pushed the boundaries in providing a bespoke retail and commercial element that is within walking distance of homes. As the future home to Spar, Tops, Woolworths and Pump Track, Salta Sibaya will have a myriad of shopping experiences on its doorstep.

The new central business district, with a culmination of some of South Africa’s much-loved brands finding their home in the dynamic commercial sector.

“When we embarked on this project, our vision was to take the Sibaya lifestyle to the next level by creating a dynamic mixed-use development, where residents live moments away from their workplace allowing them to spend more time on life’s pleasures; braais with family, trail walks throughout the conservancy and estate while enjoying breath-taking views. Salta Sibaya gives you a variety of residential opportunities, with a choice of spacious, pet-friendly, freestanding coastal homes starting from R2.95 million, perfect for those who wish to semigrate to KZN,” shares Devmco Group Director, Charles Thompson.

Choose a double storey or single-story piece of land and build your coastal family home or invest in one of the turn-key home designs.
The homes range between 2-bedroom homes from R2 950 000, 3-bedroom homes from R3 300 000, and 4-bedroom homes from R3 900 000.
