The north central suburbs of Johannesburg has for decades commanded the property market and this is greatly due to the “randlords” seeking a retreat separate from the general mine workers in Johannesburg.
Suburbs like Dunkeld, Park Town, Hyde Park and Houghton were favored as the traveling distance to the mining offices was not great of an imposition.
Since then the exclusivity status of these suburbs has gone from strength to strength. This means demand for property in suburbs like Dunkeld West will rise unabated.
One major advantage the suburb of Dunkeld West has is that the main roads consist of commercial property this adding to the versatility of property usage which comprises freehold homes, townhouses and apartments. Haute luxury is the catch phrase for property in Dunkeld.
The proximity to Sandton with its ever expanding commercial hub has further entrenched the high degree of demand for property in Dunkeld West. And further access to suburbs north east and north west with their large commercial hubs are within easy access on major roads such as Jan Smuts Avenue, Bompas Road to Park Town and Westcliff, Hyde Park and Sandton, Rosebank and further afield to suburbs such as Bryanston, Randburg and Fourways on William Nicol Drive.
Architecture in the suburb is versatile and breathtaking, modern, classical and dated properties echoing inspirational queues from Sir Herbert Baker with palatial enormity with most of the homes located on stands in excess of 2500 m2 this is understandable when you look at the proportions of the homes in relation to the stands.
Like its neighboring suburbs Dunkeld West caters for a specific market segment but does not exclude young executives or families with children of all ages as there are a number of highly reputable schools close to Dunkeld such as Kingsmead College, St Vincent School, Rosebank Mercy Convent and Hyde Park High School.
Of course the exclusive suburbs would not be complete without the obligatory exclusive retail outlets and Dunkeld West has a huge variety to choose from such as Rosebank Mall, The Zone @ Rosebank, The Firs Shopping Mall and of course Sandton City Mall with Sandton Square added for good measure for nightlife entertainment.
