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.

      The thing about the property ladder is that at some point in our lives we all have reason to want to climb a rung or two higher. Sometimes, it’s because we’ve outgrown our previous dream home, or because we want to be in a better neighbourhood that’s closer to work or to schools. Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives. Sometimes, it’s just because we want a property that reflects the financial status our hard work has won.
