Having neighbors like this does lend to some prestige but in reality Erasmus Park is a suburb with its own identity and appeal. The most notable landmark in the suburb is the Leisure Bay Lake which is visible from both the N1 and R21.
The property usage of Erasmus Park is diverse ranging from freestanding homes, sectional title townhouses, apartments and cluster homes, all in the prestigious end of the market. The prime location of the suburb is one of its many beneficial attributes; it is also close to many reputable schools, various major highways, commercial and industrial hubs, Centurion and Midrand.
The architecture is a reflection of the estimated age or progression of the suburb with the architecture landing mostly in the mode modern style with a few older homes fitting the bill of more large conventional family homes. The fact that there are a number of vacant stands is no cause for alarm. The demand for homes outstrips supply which is a major contributing factor in the price range of homes in the suburb.
One gets a sense of wholesome familial oriented living and a mixed age group in the suburb.
Developers have been very busy in the suburb with the newly released Leisure Bay Lake residential Estate which offers a new laid back architectural style at the water’s edge of the lake which developers say is a cosmopolitan waterfront lifestyle. The estate will of course, like other estates comply with regulations as set out by the developers and H.O.A. for aesthetical standards.
Schools that service Erasmus Park are Hoerskool Waterkloof, Laerskool Elardus Park, Waterkloof Primary School and Pro Arte Alphen Park.
Residents have access to all the exclusive malls like Menlyn Park Shopping Centre, Menlyn Maine with its casino and entertainment venues and Cornwall View Shopping Centre.
