Project Description

The Blyde by Balwin Properties, is an entirely new concept of living, it makes living the luxury resort lifestyle available to everyone.

The Blyde is a water-lover’s paradise, this one-of-a-kind development incorporates a Crystal Lagoons’ lagoon for swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding and sailing. Crystal Lagoons is an international water innovation company with 15 offices around the world, which has developed and patented a state-of-the-art technology that enables crystal clear lagoons to be built and maintained at very low costs, offering an idyllic beach lifestyle anywhere you can imagine.

The Estate also offers a full on-site Lifestyle Centre, the Lifestyle Centre has free Wi-fi, a restaurant, children’s play area, CSPA Wellness Spa by Camelot, cinema and games room, function room facility, concierge service and laundromat.

Active Living is also provided for with a fully equipped Training Science Gym with trainers. It also offers a mini sports field and squash facilities. If you just cannot get enough of the beach, the Lifestyle centre offers a variety of water sports on the Crystal Lagoon, keeping you fit whilst having fun. The Blyde has something for everyone.

Situated in the rapidly expanding suburbs East of Pretoria, The Blyde is a unique development in the Riverwalk Estate. Balwin is the first to bring the beach to Pretoria to offer a unique lifestyle.

With its prime location, The Blyde is situated perfectly, allowing you to enjoy almost every leisure available in the development and surrounding area, with its easy access to the N4, Educational Facilities, Shopping Malls and Restaurants as well as entertainment and recreational amenities, and so much more.

With the entire Estate centred around the iconic Crystal Lagoons’ Pools and lagoon, the Jetties and Pool walk ways take centre stage. Down time has to be minimal as well as maintenance. With the high capacity of residents which will be utilising the facility the product chosen had to be extremely durable, for high traffic and easy to maintain and keep looking beautiful – that is why TREX Transcend was utilised for this project.

The colour had to look like a natural wood product that is was regularly used on marine and river jetties originally; but it had to perform without the intense maintenance timber is often associated with, the decks also had to be entirely splinter free as it is a child friendly family resident estate.

Installation was no easy feat either with 2 large circular walk-ways and curved floating jetties, as well as an intense and condensed installation time frame provided for the project – Kiwi Timber Decking can be proud to have been associated with this project along with us at On The Deck.
