Better value for upper income family buyers in Northcliff, says Seeff

As one of the older, more established suburbs of Johannesburg, Northcliff offers property options to suit just about every buyers need and budget.

 Aside from a good selection of well-priced apartments and secure townhouses, its family homes offer exceptional value, say Seeff's area specialists, Cynthia Todd and Norah Whittingham-Jones. The houses are generally spacious, often with additional room to accommodate an extended family or to operate a professional business such as a legal or medical consultancy from home. Plots are also generous in size with well-established and treed gardens with swimming pools.

While demand for houses priced below R5 million remains buoyant, the best value to be had is above this price band; especially the modern architectural homes located higher up on the hill. Buyers can still get more ‘bang for their buck' here, and the suburb is still one of the most undervalued when you consider the exceptional value offered by these luxury homes compared to similar homes in other areas, say the agents.

A good illustration, is a contemporary architectural home that is on the market for R12 million. It is ultra-spacious, offering 1,500sqm in floor space with large glass windows that provide stunning views across the landscape to the Magaliesberg Mountains. Atriums, two aquariums, air-conditioning throughout, a walk-in safe and computerised irrigation system are some of the extras on offer. It is set on a plot of 4,600sqm with a beautifully landscaped and includes two koi ponds stocked with fish, an aviary, greenhouse and feature swimming pool.

The spacious entrance hall leads to open-plan living and entertainment areas on the lower level that include two lounges, a dining room, maple fitted bar room and a study complete with Gordon Fraser furniture. The designer kitchen is fitted with maple wood cabinets, granite worktops and Gaggenau appliances and, there is a separate scullery and laundry room.

A large outdoor entertainment terrace overlooks the garden and swimming pool. There is also a huge, fully equipped gymnasium with change rooms, a sun bed, steam room and bathroom. The home includes five bedrooms, four of which have luxurious en-suite bathrooms. There is also a separate two-bed roomed cottage with a lounge, dining room and granite kitchen. The garage accommodates six vehicle. 

Additionally, there is also a two-bed roomed staff suite with a fully fitted kitchen. The state-of-the-art security system includes CCTV cameras and infra-red beams 
The suburb's relatively central location means that residents enjoy good access to business centres such as Sandton and the Johannesburg CBD. There are also top class facilities and amenities close by including retail centres such as the Cresta Shopping Centre, one of the biggest in the metropole, good medical care, sport and leisure centres and schools, conclude Todd and Whittingham-Jones.
