The Estate's storyline revolves around a suburban community known as Echelon Estate. It has a clubhouse and a gym, and more so, it is surrounded by an 8-metre-high brick wall and tight security. However, various families from all walks of life live there.
Unfortunately, there is a land claim against the estate from the Thembalethu dwellers, the neighbouring township community, which makes the residents feel less and less secure. As a result, issues of identity and heritage became usual every day.

The Estate SABC 3 cast
Part of what makes this drama series a fascinating one is the carefully selected cast members. Note that different families live in the estate, including the Phakathwayos, Mokobanes, Van Wyks, and Le Rouxs. Below is what to note about the actors in the show.
Sdumo Mtshali as Muzi Phakathwayo
Phakathwayo is a highly respectable managing director of Isikhathi Sethu Investment Holdings. Besides, he is a natural leader who knows how to harness and manage people's talent. Not deterred by circumstances, Muzi has always set his sight on success.
Jo-Anne Reyneke as Lwandle Phakathwayo
Lwandle is married to Vuyo, and her inherent beauty is worthy of appreciation. She is not just a loyal wife but also smart, creative, and sassy.
Sparky Xulu as Siya Phakathwayo
Unlike others, Siya, Vuyo's younger brother, has always lacked lustre due to his conniving and dangerous schemes. Even though he has served some jail terms for his past actions, Siya's notorious stance continues despite being made to take a security job in the estate by his brother.
Linda Sebezo as Goniwe Phakathwayo
Goniwe is the vibrant aunt of Vuyo, and she is highly respected and loved by many. She is firmly grounded in her support for people, especially the ones she cares for. Nevertheless, Goniwe's courage was instrumental in suppressing the ANC/IFP 90s unrest.
Zenokuhle Maseko as Sindi Phakathwayo
Sindi is the daughter of Vuyo and Lwandle. Just like her mother, she is a devoted and independent young woman. She has received enough care and attention from her parents, making her indulgent and sassy. However, a lot of pressure is on her to exemplify the son Vuyo never had.
Aubrey Poo as Castro Kamanga
Castro is the MMC of transport and a taxi boss who is an ally to the Phakathwayo household. However, he is a snake in the green grass as he is dangerous and wicked. Despite Castro's pious look and false loyalty to the Phakathwayo, he secretly seeks to destroy the family and everything they represent.
Nadia Valvekens as Suzaan le Roux
Suzaan is married to Ryan, and they had a 15-year-old daughter, Leah, whom she loved so much. In The Estate, Suzaan is recognised as the Karen of the estate as she carries out secretary duty and scares her fellow community members.
Suzaan oddly plays her motherly role as she is controlling. Still, it all came to an end after Ryan ended their marriage. She is heartbroken, embarrassed, and now a single mother; she tries to pretend all is fine, but the cracks show.
Vinette Ebrahim as Fareeha
Vinette Ebrahim debuts on The Estate 2 as Jo's complicated mother and joins The Estate SABC3 cast. Fareeha and her first-born daughter have a complicated relationship as she desires that Jo would be more like her younger sister, Latifah.
After Jo reaches out to Latifah and wants to reconnect, she's taken aback. However, this reunion is the beginning of the unveiling of family secrets.
Carla Fonseca as Jo's sister Latifah
Latifah joins the SABC 3 show as Jo's younger sister. Their story goes back to when Jo, at just 18 years old, left home and lost touch since then. Latifah wanted to accompany Jo, but being at school posed a hindrance. She could also not leave their mother.
Latifah had to be the good daughter and was there for their mother after suffering a heart attack. After Latifah gets engaged to Martin, Jo reaches out. However, this reunion is the beginning of unearthing long-buried family secrets.
