In the middle 1800’s most of the northern Johannesburg was considered to be no more than farm land. This included Jukskei Park, a northern Johannesburg suburb that falls under the Randburg municipality.
This sedate suburb is today middle to upper-class suburb with groomed gardens and spacious grounds with a mixture of architecture from conventional to ultra modern. The mixed property use is one feature of the suburb that drives demand amongst first-time home buyers and investors.
Townhouse complexes are a reasonably new concept. Thus the architecture of the townhouses in the suburb is mostly modern with up-to-date finishing and space, with the benefit of lock-up and go security.
Property values are higher than normal. This is a combination of the reputation of the suburb being upper-class, and the surrounding suburbs. Included are amenities and access routes that enhance the now prime location of the suburb.
The surrounding suburbs contribute in a small way to the general property value, however the suburb is more self-sustaining with regards to demand and property values.
Entertainment venues are the other attraction that has added value to property in the region with places like Monte Casino and a bit further the world heritage sites of the Cradle of Humankind and the Sterkfontein Wonder Caves which are by themselves major tourist attractions.
Major roads that add to the benefit of living in Jukskei Park are roads like the N1 North and South that connects to towns like Krugersdorp and North to Pretoria.
There are a number of renowned schools in the region catering for education like;
Aurora Private School
St Stithian’s College
Trinity House School
For malls the northern suburb residents are certainly spoilt for choice with exclusive malls like;
Cresta Shopping Centre
