In 1897, the town of Bronkhorstspruit was proclaimed although the origin of the naming of the town is sketchy.
Situated in the Northern Gauteng the small quaint town is a tranquil haven with loads to offer. Bronkhorstspruit is part of the greater Gauteng and is situated on a main route to the northern regions of the country which means a lot of the industries are in the commercial road freight services and maintenance.
Malls catering for retail needs and entertainment are Roxy’s Village Walk shopping mall and Levine Plaza. Then there is of course, all the outdoor tourist and weekend recreation which is out door oriented. One can visit Bronkhorstbaai dam or the art and crafts expo at the dam on weekends as well as the various cultural sites around the town.
The popularity of property in and around Bronkhorstspruit and its suburbs has seen a steady growth due in large part to the Kungwini Country Estate and the exclusive homes in Bronkhorstbaai which is situated on the banks of the dam. With this attention came some renewed interest in the homes in the suburbs which have seen an increase in value in part due to the estates.
Bronkhorstspruit like any other town or even suburb has to cater for a large income group for housing thus there is a wide spectrum of property usage which consists of freestanding family homes, apartments, townhouses and then the lower income group home which are in an equally high bracket of demand.
At a mere 50 km east of Pretoria the town is not as remote as one would think and for many it is a more central point to work from especially those in the road freight industry and the town is close to Witbank with its industrial hubs and Ekandustria which is a major industrial hub.
Schools that see to the educational requirements of residents are Laerskool Du Preez van Wyk, Hoerskool Erasmus, Cultura High School and Cvo-Skool Morester.
