Gauteng is the epicentre of the commercial and industrial manufacturing sectors in the country. This means location is crucial in respect to access to the various commercial and industrial hubs. The region consisted of farms and part of this lifestyle is captured in the world famous Equestrian Park where the elegant Lipizzaner’s perform.
When taking into account the extent to which Centurion and Midrand have expanded then Glenferness is in a prime location. This then also means the suburb is highly sought after, which adds to demand and in turn a buoyant buyers and sellers’ market.
The homes here include large residential homes set on farms, smallholdings, townhouses, apartments and normal residential homes making the suburb a highly competitive market catering for the prestigious income sector. Add to this a number of prestigious lifestyle, golf and security estates increases the overall market share the suburb enjoys.
One could safely deduce that Glenferness is a prestigious suburb judging by the property values and then by the general architecture which is naturally driven by market demands and fashion. Homes on the many farms are stately elegant homestead homes which enjoy the freedom of space and tranquillity. The various estates have also had a major influence on the general architecture with the ultra-modern homes equally impressive.
Glenferness is well-established which naturally means the suburb has access to a number of reputable public and private schools such as Summit College, Beaulieu College and Dainfern College.
Major roads which accentuate the prime location of Glenferness are William Nicol Drive which connects to Witkoppen, Bryanston, Sandton and Rivonia, the Ni Western Bypass which connects to Midrand and Centurion and then a number of minor roads.
The residents of Glenferness have benefitted greatly from the Mall of Africa which is the biggest shopping mall in South Africa to date but there are a number of other malls with the same exclusivity such as The Core Shopping Centre, Cedar Square and Fourways Mall.
