Pretoria, the seat of the executive branch of government, host to all foreign embassies in the country, and home to a prosperous economy remains a busy property market. From new developments, apartments, sectional titles, and large luxury homes - Pretoria has the right property for every kind of buyer!
Often considered the quieter sister of Johannesburg, Pretoria has developed into an interesting mix of both old-school tree-lined suburbs and bustling neighbourhoods popular with the younger crowd.
Pretoria East suburbs such as Waterkloof, Waterkloof Ridge, and Waterkloof Heights are hot property for family buyers with excellent schools and the University of Pretoria in proximity. The area is also popular for ambassadorial staff with many homes rented or owned by foreign embassies.
Other suburbs that are widely recommended by Pretoria residents for families and professionals are Groenkloof, Lynnwood, Colbyn, and Waverley. Brooklyn is an extremely popular area among the younger set and boasts some fantastic restaurants and nightlife.
Although home to some of the most exclusive suburbs in the country, Pretoria East does offer neighbourhoods such as Equestria and Moreleta Park that are great for first-time buyers.
The price points are very accessible, as you can for example find a small two-bed townhouse for around R900,000 and up to three bedrooms with a double garage and small garden for around R1,5 million. These are great suburbs for young families as there are schools, churches, and other family-friendly amenities.
Activities in the area are boundless - for nature lovers the Botanical Gardens, Rietvlei Nature Reserve, and Faerie Glen Nature Reserve are escapes from the hustle and bustle of the city. While those that want to exercise outdoors have a plethora of options right outside their doorsteps - places like Rosemary Hill and Wolwespruit are top choices for residents.
Since Pretoria is ever-expanding, shopping amenities are plentiful and easily accessible from all neighbourhoods and while Menlyn Mall remains one of the largest in the city there are plenty of other smaller options that has everything you need. The Grove Mall, Woodlands Boulevard, and Lynnridge Mall are just some of the centres dotted throughout. Because there are so many foreign nationals that live and work in Pretoria - usually at one of the embassies - it is quite easy to find a shop that sells imported food items that you wouldn't find so readily at other malls.
Pretoria is truly a melting pot of different cultures where both young and old can find their dream home!
