Heritage Hill homes prove popular

Heritage Hill, a small residential estate in Midrand, is charming buyers who are looking for tranquillity and a carefree lifestyle.

The estate near the SA Mint off the old Johannesburg/Pretoria Road offers clusters, town houses and stately homes in the heritage style with plaster or facebrick walls, deep verandas and pitched corrugated iron roofs. It was established about six years ago on a part of the famous Erasmus farm and sensitive development ensured that the rural ambience was retained, says Lynette Gregorowski of marketing agency RealNet Midrand Estates.

"Residents enjoy a tranquil and secure lifestyle thanks to the secluded setting among parks and hiking trails and even old citrus orchards that formed part of the original farm. It is ideal for long rambling walks in complete safety, while offering a safe, yet exciting playground for children."

Buyer interest started picking up about 18 months ago and units are now sought-after by buyers across all age groups, she says.

"The estate is ideally situated for people who work in Midrand, Pretoria, the East Rand or Johannesburg's northern suburbs, thanks to the proximity of the two major highways. This allows them commuting convenience without having to sacrifice their chosen lifestyle in serene surroundings."

Gregorowski says home prices in Heritage Hill start at about R1,25m for two-bedroom full-title cluster homes, while clusters with three bedrooms are priced from R1,8m. These units are popular among younger buyers while family buyers often opt for the larger free-standing homes.

Prices of these larger homes start at around R2m for thee-bedroom units and range up to about R5,2m, which buys a stately residence of around 600sqm under roof, typically with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Stands are also still available in the estate at prices ranging from as little as R350 000 for a 500sqm stand to R900 000 for 1000sqm.

The estate offers a pre-primary school, and a school for older learners is in the planning stages. Another 20 new cluster units are also being planned.
