Bach Village Monaghan Farm
Bach Village, situated within the serene landscape of Monaghan Farm, supports the ideals of farm living in a residential estate. The team at REIS have designed a series of modular houses that can be uniquely adapted to 38 stands to create homes suited to the individual needs of each home owner. Each home will be nestled into the landscape, surrounded by wild Highveld grasses and indigenous trees offering privacy and serenity within a modern and sophisticated architectural form.
The prototype show-house has been completed and features an energy efficient, water based underfloor heating system, double glazing, insulated cavity walls, solar geysers and other high performance energy saving materials and systems.
