New Midrand office for RealNet

Principal and director Abdul Aziz Mustapha says the franchise serves Halfway House, Kyalami, Vorna Valley, Buccleuch as well as surrounding agricultural holdings.

"It is a vibrant area thanks to the proximity to both Johannesburg and Pretoria but the pinnacle of the local property scene is definitely the Waterfall City development near the Allandale off-ramp," he says.

The 640ha mixed-use development, described as the biggest in South African history, will offer a variety of residential options ranging in price from around R2,5m to R6m.

The estate will consist of an upmarket equestrian estate, a shopping centre near the Allandale off-ramp, two retirement villages, industrial and business parks, a private hospital, and international schools.

About 80 homes have been completed in the equestrian estate, which offers stables, bridle paths, paddocks, training tracks, a veterinary and tack room, jumping arena, lunging ring and dressage areas, Mustapha says.

Keen riders can also sample trails in the green belts, which make up nearly 50% of the development. Cycle and walking trails with bird hides, park benches and drinking fountains have been laid out and residents can launch non-motorised craft on the large lake.

Other amenities include polo fields, a squash court, swimming pools and a club house with a fitness centre and spa.

The first retirement village offers an indoor heated swimming pool, a special gym for the elderly, a cards and cigar room, a deli that delivers fresh bread and milk to residents every day, a cinema, a horticultural centre, a bowling green, a croquet lawn, business centre, a library, travel agent, frail care, an arts and crafts studio, a restaurant, a billiards room and a hair and beauty salon.

Mustapha says the Waterfall development will compete with the best in the world once it is completed and is set to focus international attention on Midrand.
