Close to all amenities and main routes, Ferndale is a hidden central gem for family buyers - especially those with extended families - and for professionals like psychologists and lawyers looking to utilise extra space for commercial purposes.

Seeff Randburg Managing Director, Tony Ketcher, says that most homes in Ferndale are on big stands with park-like gardens and many come with separate cottages that can very easily be converted to office space for those looking to consult from the comfort of their home or into granny flats for extended family or an extra rental income. "The convenient location of Ferndale and its easy access to highways make it an ideal residential or business address. New owners in the suburb are constantly renovating their properties which drives values upwards. This, the great rental demand and incredible ground value in the area means a safe investment," he concludes.

"These big stands create a wonderful indoor outdoor flow and the tranquil ambience of a suburb set amidst quiet tree-lined streets enable residents to enjoy a lifestyle that resembles country living in the city at very affordable prices. According to Coetzee, Ferndale with neighbouring areas including upmarket suburbs like Bryanston, Douglasdale and Paulshof, remains one of the most desirable suburbs in Randburg.

Ketcher says Ferndale is exceptionally popular with both private and corporate buyers and property in the area tends to move quickly. "The area is not only conveniently situated for access to business areas within the greater Randburg and Sandton areas, but also in very close proximity to a diverse range of facilities, sporting clubs and gyms, shopping centres and entertainment options, good schools and medical facilities," he concludes.
