Nkhanini Township : A new exciting development down south
Nkhanini Township is situated 3km from Nhlangano Town Centre and is adjacent to the Nhlangano Correctional Services.  The township is along the Nhlangano/Mahamba public road overlooking Mathendele Township Extension 6. SNHB offers five different house types for this development. Prospective buyers also have the opportunity of developing their properties with house concepts of their choice. To date, four demo houses are being constructed on site to give a potential buyer an actual feel of the house. The Township is always open for viewing to potential buyers who are free to contact the SNHB offices for assistance. Click here to view house types.

SNHB takes pride in yet another successful estate development in the Ezulwini Valley.  The Estate is tucked in the heart of Ezulwini, just behind the Royal Villas.  It is along the link road between Codec and Ezulwini Town Board at the edge of the u-bend.  This offering was specifically meant for the up-class market in society.  It was well received and well-articulated to meet the unprecedented market. 

It was the first of its kind for SNHB to tap into the high-end property market in March 2009, by offering 27 residential lots in an encased perimeter wall fenced and gated estate furnished with a security guard house. To date, the estate boasts of quality infrastructure with storm water drainage, water supply, inbuilt sewer network, electricity, street lighting, tarred roads and individual plot access points. There is one public open space set aside for recreational facilities to offer the residents a complete lifestyle. As we state, Thembelisha Estate has been sold out.   

For all homeowners who desire to experience a tranquil lifetime experience, this estate happened to be the ideal address in the valley.  Several reasons have made investors in the property market opt for this estate. Although SNHB did not offer development options for buyers, it is undoubted that all 27 lots will accommodate exquisite and up-market houses with modern building materials, finishes and present beautiful housing facades in the near future.   This is attested already by two lot owners who are trendsetters, they have built beautiful modern townhouses in their lots. Indeed SNHB continues to provide various human settlements for the entire Swazi populace.
