Idyllic waterfront homes can be found only 30 minutes from Johannesburg and Pretoria

Hartbeespoort in the North West province is doubtlessly one of the most popular inland tourist destinations in the country.

With its majestic mountains encapsulating the picturesque dam it is not surprising that the landscape here has often been likened to the coastal towns of Hermanus and Knysna.
Not only is Hartbeespoort a remarkable weekend breakaway and holiday destination that offers amongst others beautiful views, watersport and tourist attractions like the cable cars, animal parks, flea markets, Jasmyn Farm Stall, the Pretville film set etc, but many people are also choosing to reside here full-time.
Terry Blanckenberg, Seeff Agent at Pecanwood, says although the town is far enough from the hustle and bustle to have a peaceful country feeling it is also only a 30 minute drive from the Johannesburg and Pretoria city centres which also makes it an ideal spot to commute from to work.
Blanckenberg continues the biggest demand for property in Hartbeespoort lies in security estates such as Pecanwood that derived its name from the grove of pecan nut trees on the property.
"One of the highlights of living in Pecanwood Estate is the exquisite views that residents have on the age old Magaliesberg Mountain Range.  These views,  waterfront homes and top notch security is what makes Pecanwood the creme-de-la-creme of Security Lifestyle Estates around the Hartbeespoort Dam and the estate is also known as a benchmark for golf courses in South Africa.
Pecanwood offers a relaxed lifestyle environment where families can enjoy the benefits of excellent schooling on their doorstep as well as tennis, golf, gym, water-sports, restaurants and a health spa".
Blanckenberg continues that properties in this estate range from R2 million through to R12 million plus and that they have also seen a steady increase in prices in the estate since 2012.
"Owning property in Pecanwood is a good investment as the buy-to-let market here is buoyant and there are many opportunities for weekend and longer term rentals.
Pecanwood also offers a lot of potential for retirement as it is very secure and in close proximity to all important medical services".
