Faerie Glen is a suburb in the east of Pretoria.
Faerie Glen was part of a farm which included Garsfontein. Since the 70’s Faerie Glen has been a sought after suburb for its location, view over Menlyn and surrounds and at that stage there was a move away from living close to city centres. Urbanization has led to the establishment of suburbs removed from theses city centres.
