Country classic in Chartwell

Just north of the Fourways residential and commercial hub is the Sandton suburb of Chartwell. Although only minutes away from the hustle and bustle city life, this rural horse country suburb is situated on the slopes of the Chartwell hills boasting spectacular views of the Magaliesberg Mountains and an out-of-town lifestyle that has attracted a number of property buyers, says Dieter Harck, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX One Hundred, whose office services the Fourways and surrounding areas.

“The fact that residents in Chartwell North can live on large, sprawling country estates and yet are only minutes away from the amenities in Fourways, Monte Casino and extremely close to Lanseria Airport, have made it a popular area among property buyers who want the best of both worlds. For the avid nature enthusiast many of the estates in Chartwell North feature indigenous gardens along with dams and a large variety of birdlife.  However, the area is also ideally situated for those who work in the financial hub of Sandton, which is located just 20 minutes away,” says Harck.
Harck points out that the popularity of the area could be due to the fact that aside from the lifestyle offering, the area’s location allows it access to a number of good schools such as Heronbridge College, Crawford Pre- Primary, Prep and College. “A number of buyers in Fourways and the surrounding suburbs have bought property in the region so that they will be zoned for the schools that are situated in the area,” says Harck.

Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says that aside from the convenience of being close to amenities such as shopping centres, entertainment hubs and medical facilities, proximity to good schools also plays a major role in where buyers choose to live.  He notes that this is because, location will not only impact return on investment and lifestyle, but more importantly - it can also have an influence on the children’s education.   
RE/MAX One Hundred is currently marketing an upmarket home, which is located in Chartwell North Estates. One of five homes on an exclusive estate, this spectacular property is situated on an indigenous award-winning 10 000m2 garden, with 1000m2 under roof. On the market for R8.5 million, the home features four ensuite bedrooms that all lead out onto private gardens, four large reception areas, a gourmet solid rosewood kitchen with walk-in fridge, separate scullery and separate laundry, all with top-of-the-range finishes throughout. Other features include a Morso fireplace, four automated garages with access to the house, a swimming pool, double staff accommodation and two income producing cottages.
