Future development in Fourways boosts property popularity

Situated in northern Sandton, the fast developing residential and commercial node of Fourways is a lively area that is continuously abuzz with activity. 

With big development planned for the future, coupled with the anticipated growth that this will bring, Fourways is a highly sought after area that is considered to be one of the most promising areas for property purchase in Johannesburg, says Dieter Harck, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX One Hundred, whose offices services Fourways and the surrounding areas.

Andris Theart, a RE/MAX One Hundred sales associate, who is currently marketing an upmarket cluster in Fourways for R6.999 million, says that the area is an excellent choice for buyers who want to have the convenience of being close to a selection of amenities.  

“Long before the area was called Fourways, it was a 605 acre farm owned by the Eriksen family. The land was eventually sold off, piece by piece, to various buyers and the area developed into the hive of activity. Today it comprises of eight individual suburbs, namely Norscot, Magaliessig, Greater Fourways, Norscot Slopes, Lonehill, Broadacres, Craigavon and Beverley. The area also incorporates three estates called Cedar Lakes, Fourways Gardens and Dainfern,” says Harck. “The area’s ideal positioning has added to the area’s allure, with property ranging from small sectional title units to large upmarket freestanding homes catering to a range of buyers at all life stages.”

Harck says that a major draw card for the area is it positioning close to excellent schools, shopping centres and amenities. “In Fourways there is always something on the go as the area boasts a number of entertainment facilities, restaurants and shopping malls such as The Fourways Mall, Leaping Frog, Cedar Square, Pineslopes Boulevard, Montecasino and Fourways Crossing to name a few. Added to this you will find various schools, like Crawford Prep and College, Bryanston Primary School, Bryandale Primary School, Fourways High School and Bryanston High School and nursery schools within proximity. The area, which is only 17km from Lanseria International Airport, also has easy access to William Nicol Drive that provides direct access to the N1 or N14 to Pretoria and,” says Harck.

Andris Theart, a RE/MAX One Hundred sales associate, who is currently marketing an upmarket cluster in Fourways for R6.999 million, says that the area is an excellent choice for buyers who want to have the convenience of being close to a selection of amenities.  

“Although the property is close to the hustle and bustle of the Fourways area, it still offers buyers the opportunity of owning a private oasis with beautiful gardens and waterfalls,” says Theart. “With security top of mind for most property buyers in the country, the home also offers a state-of-the-art security system, along with its own security gate that leads up to the main entrance. The Beverley, Lonehill and Pineslopes areas all form part of the Lonehill Residence Association (LRA), which was established primarily for security in these suburbs. The LRA also maintain and clean the gardens, parks, lake, trees and pavements. By doing so, a real sense of a safe community has been created.”

He adds that other features of the property include three north-facing guest bedrooms, two of which have full en-suite bathrooms with skylights above the showers, a double volume entrance hall, study, guest toilet, storage cupboard, private lounge, atrium with water feature, dining room and TV room/lounge, a double garage, two covered carports and ample additional parking for guests. Theart notes that the dining room and TV room/lounge shares a double sided wood fireplace. “The beautiful extra-large kitchen, which features solid wood cupboards and granite counter tops, is off the dining room and has an entrance into the double garage as well. In the kitchen there is space for a double-door fridge, built-in microwave, gas stove and extractor fan and a breakfast nook. Off the kitchen is the scullery with a separate walk-in pantry and space for two appliances.”

In addition, the home has space in the passage for a study area and a linen cupboard or storage room. The main bedroom is north facing with a huge walk-in cupboard, full en-suite bathroom (with atrium) and separate toilet. The main bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms open up on a shared north facing patio with views of the surrounding trees running along the river. The covered patio features a wooden bar, ideal for serving sunset cocktails. According to Theart, the patio, TV room/lounge, private lounge and study all open up onto the manicured garden and a heated rock pool with water feature.

“Other features of this property include a self-contained cottage off the kitchen, a PABX telephone system and VacuFlo Air Cooling System,” says Theart.

Harck concludes by saying that Fourways and the surrounding suburbs have remained sought after area for many years, and buyers who purchase homes in these suburbs can expect to realise a solid return on investment over the long term.
