Dainfern at a glance

Established more than 25 years ago, Dainfern has grown into an upmarket residential area that is home to celebrities, artists, entrepreneurs, business owners, wealthy individuals and expatriates who enjoy the many live, work and leisure benefits that the area and its surrounds offer.

The growing node shows no signs of slowing down in the next couple of years with expansions planned for both the close-by Fourways Mall and Gautrain - making this the perfect home base for well-traveled individuals.

The neighbourhood provides just about the full spectrum of amenities, nightlife and entertainment in a beautiful, tranquil setting. There is an abundance of shopping malls, office parks, hotels and lodges for those with a discerning taste.

One such popular amenity is the Dainfern Golf Estate that has become the go-to place for a round of golf in the area or as a secure living option for those looking to pair their golf with their home life. The estate is flanked by the smaller suburbs of Dainfern Valley and Dainfern Ridge

Residents of the area have a choice of private schools and colleges, and can also apply to admit their children to Bryanston's elite schools.

For both buyers and investors, the neighbourhood offers a wide range of properties from apartments and townhouses to clusters and sprawling family homes. The area attracts young individuals and families with the majority of buyers in the 36 to 49-year-old age bracket. Due to its ideal location, many buyers invest in the area with a longterm view of renting out townhouses and apartments to those just entering the property market.
