The region of Randburg is known as the “Garden City” due to the lush dense trees in the suburbs and this is true of Ferndale which has tree lined streets and many homes sport designer gardens. The suburb is by association in high demand and it is further driven by its prime location and stable growth in property values.
The mixed property use of the suburb is a major benefit with apartment buildings, townhouse complexes and freehold homes.
In recent times Ferndale has experienced resurgence with the development of estates and more sectional-title complexes. This has also had a positive effect on the general property values as new developments set a form of benchmark to follow in finishings and pricing. This has also increased the number of people looking at the suburb as a residential address.
Benefits of the suburb are the major roads which make travel to the office, schools, malls and retail hubs convenient. The suburb is, like many older well-established suburbs self-sustaining to a large extent with all the amenities in place.
There are a good number of public spaces and parks which is reminiscent of town planning along the “Garden Cities” principle of years gone by. Thus the suburb is favoured by old and young and more so by young executives and buy-to-let investors as the rental market is huge in the suburb. The reason for this is that the apartments in the suburb as not as expensive as Sandton but offers a similar degree of exclusivity and the suburb is only a few minutes drive along William Nicol to Sandton, Hyde Park and Rosebank.
