The Natal Midlands is a vast region that is still being developed with many opportunities for developers and intended home owners alike and one such suburb is Hilton.
The architecture of many homes in the suburb is determined by the undulating hills that make for dramatic views and design. This factor is also what determines some of the higher property values.
Leaning towards the upper-class segment within the market place means many of the homes are situated on large grounds with some properties on smallholdings and there are a number of vacant stands and townhouse complexes which does open up the market to the middle-class income group and young families entering the market along with a number of farms which could serve as lodges, B&B’s or guest houses as the region is a tourist destination apart from the beachfront of the Durban coastline. This means there are commercial property usage opportunities for investors in the tourism industry in the suburb.
Other factors that enhance property values in the suburb are the number of security estates like Mount Verde Gated Estate and Garlington and a number of newer developments which indicated the level of demand for property in the suburb in general.
Only 20 minutes from Pietermaritzburg is considered by the suburbs residents a small inconvenience to bear when considering the tranquility of the country lifestyle the suburb offers. Thus travel to the commercial and industrial hubs in Pietermaritzburg puts the office close at hand.
Of course being a well-established suburb means amenities like schools and malls are in place. Here is a list of some of the popular schools near to Hilton, Saint Ann’s Diocesan College, Grace College, Laddsworth Primary School and Hilton Montessori.
Malls close to the suburb are The Quarry Centre, Cascades Lifestyle Centre and Liberty Midland Mall.
