One of the definitions for Florauna is a (Wildvine specie), this is in some way echoed by the leafy tree lined sidewalks and manicured gardens of this middle to upper middle class and in some instances a prestigious suburb in Pretoria North. The green foliage is in part thanks to the perfect location of the suburb which is surrounded by koppies and the sun from the north. This means many of the homes located higher up on the hills have the most spectacular views over to the south of the city and this also adds value to these home and then influences the general property values.
Even though Florauna is a residential suburb, the diverse property usage, which consists of freestanding homes, apartments, townhouses, cluster homes, and yes, a number of farms and small holdings in no way means the suburb, is remote. The importance of farms and smallholdings in the suburb means there is still land that will eventually come onto the market. Florauna is in fact in a prime location, surrounded by other residential suburbs. The smallholdings and farms are on the border of the suburb beyond the hills.
The mixed architecture in Florauna has a timeline which begins with the classic conventional and then progresses to what is current and even post-modern. This indicates a mixed demographic from young to old within the upper-middle class to the executive income group.
