Crown Gardens is an old well-established suburb located in the south of Johannesburg. The suburb was established when gold mining was the core of development of the greater Johannesburg and residential property was in huge demand.
Crown Mines was one of the major stake holders in mining in the region and this gave rise to the need for property in the region.
The mixed use of the suburb comprises apartments, commercial, freehold homes and sectional-title townhouses.
The suburb caters for a larger income group from mid low to middle income groups. The suburb is ideal for first time home buyers and buy-to-let investors due to the reasonably affordable property values and what the individual properties offer in terms of size. The tranquility of the suburb will please most families concerned with noise pollution.
The demand for property in the suburb is further highlighted by its location and proximity to industrial hubs which have diversified into not only maintenance and support for mining in the region but general engineering work.
The proximity of the suburb to the Johannesburg CBD is another major benefit as the Joburg CBD has been revived into the hub it once was offering employments to large communities.
Commercial use of the property in the suburb is not limited to retail but there are a number of guest houses which cater for tourists exploring the historic sites in and around Johannesburg with the benefit of generating added income and adding further value to the property in the suburb.
The major roads around the suburb are a blessing with the roads connecting to other suburbs, schools, malls and amenities.
The proximity of the suburb to Gold Reef City and the Gold Reef City Casino are a major benefit further enhancing the possibility of guest houses and B&B’s.
Schools in the region are well established with good reputations. Here is a list of nearby schools;
