Sandton was nothing more than small holdings and sparsely populated but also had a degree of status as expensive property. In 1973 the city began to take shape to what it is today.
With more than enough suburbs to cater for the well-heeled Sandton has become the sought after property address to invest in.
One such highly sought after suburb is Atholhurst which has a lot going for it like the high degree of demand, stable growth in property values, access to the major commercial hubs which are crucial to Sandton and then access to schools and malls.
Property usage in this well-established exclusive suburb consists of freehold homes, apartments and cluster homes. Aesthetic features to the designer architecture are the landscaped gardens which are immaculately manicured and apartment buildings are of the more modern appearance which is highly attractive for executives and investors in the rental market.
Apartments are from bachelor pads to larger units and many make full use of the views over Sandton adding in small part to the value.
Freehold homes and clusters do not make any excuses for their exclusivity in architecture or imposing sizes and blend in perfectly with the inviting tree lined streets. The suburb does lend to a degree of family with security being one of the major additions to the homes.
Neighbors like Inanda, Winston Ridge and Atholl increases the number of perspective buyers to the suburb.
Being a well-to-do suburb means there is access to private and reputable schools such as Atholhurst School, St David’s College, Crawford College Sandton and Sandown High School.
Major and minor roads which highlight the prime location of the suburb are access to the De Villiers Graaff Motorway, Grayston Drive, Atholl Road and Rivonia road offering access to the commercial hubs in Sandton Central, Rivonia, Hyde Park and Rosebank.
Exclusive malls have not been excluded for the suburb. Here are some of the malls nearby, Hyde Park Corner, Benmore Gardens Shopping Mall, Melrose Arch and Sandton City Mall.
