Old world charm is the only synonym for Bailey’s Muckleneuk in the old east of Pretoria. The suburb is established on the farm, Elandspoort, which George Walker purchased at the peak of the Witwatersrand gold rush. A Scottish settler named George Walker was the principal founder of this unique tranquil suburb with Walker Street named after him. The Scottish colloquial for Muckleneuk means “large corner or nook”. But the suburb is no nook, more it is nestled in a highly sought after part of the east that has all the important amenities at the doorstep.
The architecture is reminiscent of a by-gone era with many of the older homes having been restored to former glory.
The suburb is very secluded which adds to the attraction and charm yet is highly sought after. Property values are this driven by demand which is partly due to the mystique surrounding the suburb.
