Smallholding Promises Holistic Lifestyle for R18m in Hermanus Lagoon

Category Property News

A worldwide trend, which has been growing for the past few years, has seen many individuals leave the fast-paced city lifestyle and moving to the countryside in search for a more peaceful and holistic way of life. It would appear that members of the higher income bracket have been migrating away from the hustle and bustle, which is in contrast to the high volume of lower income groups moving to more urbanised areas near the city. 

Amidst this group of people relocating to the country, are individuals who go one step above this lifestyle trend – opting to give up some or all of the urban life and choose to invest in smallholdings in order to cultivate and live off of the land (fully or partially). Evidently, choosing to move to a more rural area or to buy this type of property is not a viable option for everyone, and is only possible for a few individuals. The term “green shifter” has been given to these people, who are typically wealthier, in their late thirties to forties with established careers and young children – who want to benefit from a better quality of life and open spaces.

Why Hermanus is a Greenshifter’s Dream

The village atmosphere and natural lifestyle of Hermanus have been preserved by its residents who prefer a slower pace of life. Apart from its lush green landscape, there are many estates that prioritise environmental responsibility and several other conservation initiatives in the area. Surrounded by a farming community, there are weekly markets and yearly events that celebrate the home-grown, local way of living.
