Colbyn is a Pretoria East suburb located in a little nook.
It is a purely residential suburb with homes that are spacious and reflect a design style dating back to the 50’s and 60’s with pressed ceilings wooden floors, bay windows and spacious living rooms. The stands are just as spacious with well-established gardens displaying against the homes.
The homes in Colbyn do not come onto the market that often because people residing there tend to stay for the tranquillity and the proximity of the suburb to amenities, other suburbs and major routes. Located outside the Pretoria CBD, in what could be described the embassy belt in Pretoria, it is certainly convenient. To reach the Gautrain station is a short trip up to Lynnwood Road in Hatfield.
