Monaghan is the antithesis of a golf estate. It is a genuine and generous attempt to create a community that enjoys the beauty and freedom of a safe, rural lifestyle on the edge of the biggest city in Africa. Monaghan has a strong emphasis on sustainability, both for the community and the environment, and on an appropriate contemporary architecture for South Africa.
“The Other Side” is a fresh & organically-sourced whole foods restaurant and deli located on Monaghan Farm, and is open to the public on weekends. Bookings are essential. Drivers licence will be required for entry on to Monaghan Farm. Tel: 0876300742 or 0877271010.
