Think about Hatfield and students come to mind. Hatfield must be Gauteng’s busiest student hub and is a mixed use residential suburb with hotels, communes, private homes and student villas making up this mixture along with commercial and retail hubs all conveniently located.
Like its sister town in England it is also a student haven with the University of Hertfordshire based in Hatfield UK. The history of Hatfield in the UK dates back past when Pretoria was an idea. The climate in Hatfield in the UK looks fairly similar to that of Hatfield Pretoria with average lows of 5°C and highs of around 23°C.
Hatfield in Pretoria is, due to its proximity to the Pretoria University, stooped in student tradition and the history around student life – both on and off campus.
The properties around Hatfield are thus reasonably old, sturdy and spacious with the stand sizes in quite a few instances in excess of 1000m2.
Investors have seen opportunities and bought up properties which have been changed into student villas which is a great and lasting source of income.
Hatfield will not be complete without the mention of Loftus Versveld which is the home to the Blue Bulls.
The suburbs around Hatfield are also geared towards students and children with a number of South Africa’s reputable schools in close proximity. These include Afrikaans Hoër Seunsskool, Hoërskool Menlopark, Boys High, Afrikaans Hoër Meisiesskool and Laerskool Menlopark, with big names in academy and sport having attended these schools.
The other attraction to Hatfield is the entertainment with places like Hatfield Square and Duncan Yard being popular hangouts.
The other benefit of being a Hatfield resident is the proximity to the Gautrain Station which is walking distance from Hatfield.
This is very much a self sustaining suburb with all the right amenities in the right places.
