Georginia is a charming mixed-use residential suburb of the greater Roodepoort. One gets a sense that the suburb is tranquil and the general state of homes indicate pride in the residents. Neatly manicured, tree-lined sidewalks leaves the impression of family values of residents.
The mixed-use of properties in the suburb consists of freehold homes, sectional-title townhouse complexes and sectional-title apartment complexes. These three usages have created a platform that will attract a broad income demographic and age from young couples, bachelors, pensioners and established families.
