The Orchards is situated on a country hilltop overlooking Knysna and enjoys a 360-degree view of the Knysna lagoon and inland countryside.

It is accessed through a valley to the north west of the property off Welbedacht Road. The whole property is 3,2 hectares in size, with nineteen erven (seventeen of which are dedicated to the homes of The Orchards@Knysna), zoned general residential, of differing sizes and orientation with 16,000㎡ of common property. The Orchards uniqueness lies in the fact that it is a small, eco-friendly, off the power grid, exclusive development on a hilltop with understated style and quality at affordable prices and inexpensive to maintain with very few fortunate Owners, encouraging a self-sufficient country lifestyle. It has generous road verges and boundary hedges of vines, fruit or nut trees. Focused attention will be given to landscaping the road verges and common property with vineyards, fruit and nut trees, the produce of which will be shared between the Owners
