Kyalami Estate in pole position

Buyers seeking to purchase property within security estates has become a nationwide trend, due to both the safety element and lifestyle benefits that these kind of properties provide. 


One of the properties within the estate that RE/MAX Central is currently marketing is priced at R4.95 million and is situated on a stand measuring 972m². With 512m² under roof, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom home features a large kitchen, spacious lounge with double-volume ceiling, separate dining area, pajama lounge, study, two automated garages, extra parking, a staff suite and a garden area overlooking the swimming pool. 

According to Elizabeth Hannemann, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Central Midrand, the centre of Midrand and surrounding areas are following suit with a high demand for secure estates currently being experienced in the area.

“We have seen a particular high demand for homes within the Kyalami Estate, due to the fact that it is the oldest and most established estate in the area. One of the advantages of purchasing a property within an established estate like Kyalami Estate is that there is proof that the investment will appreciate in value, as there are records of sales and property prices going back more than 20 years,” says Hannemann. “Homes within Kyalami Estate offer buyers a high growth potential of between 20% and 30% over a five year period, based on past trends.”

Adrian Goslett, Regional Director and CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says that secure estate homes offer excellent returns because they cater to a primary need, which is to feel safe. “The sad reality is that with many South Africans affected by crime in some way, focus has been placed on purchasing a home that will offer its occupants optimum security and peace of mind,” says Goslett.

Hannemann says that Kyalami Estate offers a safe and secure lifestyle while embracing the best of contemporary living, which has added to the estate’s allure. Another draw card is that it is well situated midway between the major metropolitan areas of Johannesburg and Pretoria.  “The estate has character and charm and offers residents an excellent quality of life, and even though it is separated from the hustle and bustle of city living, it is still within proximity to all major amenities and the highway network. It is the amalgamation of an out-of-town lifestyle with the convenience of urban living,” says Hannemann.

She notes that Kyalami Estate features large stands with well-built, full-title family homes. “There are around 1 000 homes on the estate, each situated on a stand measuring about a quarter of an acre. Others features of the estate include large indigenous trees, birdlife and 16 parks with numerous dams and waterways. The estate also has a range of facilities such as a tennis court, squash court, outside gym equipment, a sports area with cricket nets, basketball and netball court and a soccer pitch. There are playschool’s for children, a clubhouse that runs activities such as karate, a running club, a cycle club, a soccer club and dance club, cooking classes and much more.” According to Hannemann, this, combined with a well-run Home Owners Association, excellent access control and 24-hour security make this a desirable estate, especially for families. “Over the past five years, Lightstone, a property statistics and information provider, has consistently placed Kyalami Estate in the top five Johannesburg suburbs for houses priced over R3 million.”

She adds that homes within the estate start at around R2 million and go up to approximately R6.5 million depending on features of the home and placement within the estate.  One of the properties within the estate that RE/MAX Central is currently marketing is priced at R4.95 million and is situated on a stand measuring 972m2. With 512m2 under roof, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom home features a large kitchen, spacious lounge with double-volume ceiling, separate dining area, pajama lounge, study, two automated garages, extra parking, a staff suite and a garden area overlooking the swimming pool.
