Brooklyn in Pretoria is a well established highly sought after suburb with a mixture of free standing homes, clusters and townhouse complexes which all have their own following. The older homes have the old world charm with wooden floors, pressed high ceilings and bay windows which are sought after by those who have a heart for restoring work.
Thus property values are driven by what the suburb offers in terms of property use, architecture and size. The other factor is the location of Brooklyn and its proximity to amenities like malls, schools, public transport and major roads.
The suburb is well located for those families with children in schools or attending universities such as Tukkies or UNISA with access routes very convenient and trouble free.
Some of the popular schools in and in close proximity to Brooklyn include Pretoria Boys High School, Hoërskool Menlopark, Laerskool Menlopark, Pretoria High School for Girls, Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool and Pro Arte Alphen Park.
The major and minor roads which are convenient to travel on are Lynnwood Road, Justice Mohamed Street, Brooklyn Road and Florence Ribeiro Road.
All the right malls are conveniently close by as well. These include Brooklyn Mall, Menlyn Park Shopping Mall and Spar Menlo.
These suburbs take up the slack from buyers and tenants that are driven by quality and a degree of exclusivity.
Buy-to-let investors in the townhouse market will see stable income figures driven by the demand for rental property in the student and family residence market.
