Take a scenic drive down Christiaan De Wet Road and into Ontdekkers Road and head west.
This road will happen upon Horison View, one of the many suburbs which make up the greater Roodepoort. Driving into Horison View one soon becomes aware of the tranquillity in the suburb. Manicured gardens displayed against well-maintained homes of various architectural styles, sized and use brings to mind the idea of a close-knit family.
Large trees line neat sidewalks telling the story of a well-established and sought after suburb with a middle-class tone of the homes.
Townhouses and apartments are sought after by singles and first-time buyers and they are not disappointed with the value these properties bring when it is time to upgrade to the larger medium sized family home. Townhouses and apartment building have kept up with design and architecture which also means this generation can enjoy what is fashionable and current.
Family homes are of a mixture of sized and price value which also then makes it possible for people to upgrade from the first-time buyers up to the middle-class bracket and from there to the upper-middle class bracket.
Due to the prime location of the suburb many residents upgrade from within the suburb which is a good indication that the suburb grows on one. Horison View has access to all the nearby industrial and commercial hubs along major roads such as Ontdekkers Road, Christiaan De Wet Road, Golf Club Terrace and Hendrik Potgieter Road. From these roads it is possible to reach destinations like Sandton, Randburg, Rivonia and Melrose with the minimal amount of effort.
With the greater Roodepoort having been established way back in the 1800’s means there are schools which have been established almost as far back. Here is a list of some nearby schools; Horison View Primary School, West Ridge High School, Laerskool Horison and Hoerskool Roodepoort.
