Many prospective home owners are driven by convenience when perusing suburbs and in today’s economic climate there are a range of factors which determine the viability of a suburb as a residential address.
The determinative factors are for instance the proximity of schools in the neighborhood and their reputation, proximity to commercial or industrial hubs and the roads connecting to these hubs and most important the growth in property value as a long term investment.
The current trend is a tossup between Centurion and the east of Pretoria. The positive factors which benefit Centurion and its suburbs are that it is located closer to commercial hubs in Midrand, Sandton, Rivonia and Melrose.
One such attractive and highly sought after suburb in Centurion is Eldoglen which commands a high degree of demand. Property usage in the suburb consists mainly of freehold homes with a number of townhouse complexes which adds a benefit to startup families or those seeking the convenience and security which townhouses offer.
The suburb is classified as a middle-class suburb with some houses falling within the exclusive range within the market and this is a positive factor in establishing the appeal of the suburb. The architecture which is vibrant, modern and functional caters for the younger market with established families.
Eldoglen is a suburb with a tranquil atmosphere, manicured gardens and clean roadways further enhancing the aesthetics of the suburb.
Being a well-established suburb means the schools are within easy access. Here is a list of some of the popular schools, Hoerskool Eldoraigne, Sutherland High School, Hoerskool Uitsig and Laerskool Uitsig.
Major roads of which there are many connecting to commercial and industrial hubs are Ruimte Road, Old Johannesburg Road connecting to Midrand, Pretoria Main Road and easy access to the Ben Schoeman Freeway.
Residents have a treat when retail is required at malls such as Centurion Mall, Mall@Reds and Forest Hill City and slightly further north Menlyn Park Shopping Mall.
