With a property use comprising of sectional-title townhouses, apartments and freehold homes means a large market will be satisfied.
Property values range from the mid R450 000 to above the R800 mark for sectional-title units and from roughly the R800 000 mark to above the R3 mil mark for freehold homes.
The mixed architecture will suit the whole market with conventional architecture to modern trends. This adds to the overall market value of the various properties.
