Tamasa Developments


The beginning of Tamasa Developments came together twelve years ago, with the focus on building homes primarily in Cotswold Downs Golf Estate in Hillcrest. From here, we spread our expertise to Howick, where we embarked on building homes in The St. John’s Lifestyle and Retirement Village. For approximately some five years now, Tamasa Developments has been designing and constructing homes on the estate for everyday people including professionals, families and couples, as well as retirees all looking for a safe environment within easy reach of schools , shopping centres as well as hospitals. Tamasa Developments has now also acquired some twenty five plots in the very popular Zululami Luxury Estate in Sheffield Beach on the North Coast, and will be soon starting construction of the same quality homes in this very exciting new secure estate.

Expert Team

The company is the brainchild of Leon Trickett, who sought to provide a central location for the entire construction process of residential homes. Twelve years on, and Tamasa Developments has established a team of professionals, including architects, engineers, surveyors, project managers and associated tradesmen to ensure that only the finest homes are created in accordance to high-quality specifications. In addition, we take care of the financial and administrative aspects of the process.

By providing expertise across the board, we ensure that our clients have just one point of contact, that being Tamasa Developments, thus making the development and purchasing process effortless for our clients.

Our current development on St. John’s Village has seen us venture to a new environment, one in-which urban concepts have been fused with echoes of the past. Built on the concept of agri-urbanism, the estate incorporates residential sites and cottages set amid organic agricultural elements and eco-friendly practices.

On site, we have a resident team of builders and sales executives who are exclusively involved in the residential lifestyle aspect of the estate to ensure that the construction and administration process is as streamlined as possible.

The Team


Before founder Leon Trickett established Tamasa Developments, he was the owner of a steel business in the Highway area for 30 years. After selling this business, he decided to venture into new grounds as retirement was not an option. This was the start of his residential construction business, with Cotswold Downs being the catalyst.Initially building one home on the estate, the number grew to a total of 20 homes within a time-span of five years. Expanding the expertise within Tamasa Developments, Dave Rees partnered with Leon when it was decided to move into St. John’s Village. Dave has attained over 25 years of experience in the commercial and industrial property environment, and together they bring a rich knowledge of construction and real estate which is displayed in the homes they create.

Vision and Mission

Tamasa Developments strives to be the best and most reliable turnkey development business in KwaZulu-Natal, delivering modern and customised homes that emanate architectural brilliance.
