Lakeside is middle to upper-class suburb located on the East Rand or Ekurhuleni. The tree-lined streets speak of tranquility and gardens echoes this sentiment with landscaped gardens showing off homes of all sizes and designs.
The mixed property use which comprises townhouse complexes, cluster homes and freehold homes caters for the more well-heeled in the market segment.
One of the more prominent features of the suburbs is its location. Close to popular schools, large retail malls and major roads and the most important of all the proximity to OR Tambo airport.
The suburb commands a high demand which stems from a stable market related growth rate in property values and the relative safety of the suburb of which some parts are within a boomed security area. This factor further adds to the value of the properties. Most of the homes are spacious and architecture leans more towards the modern end of the spectrum which will please a larger market.
Townhouses will cater for investors and first time home buyers alike with stable growth in this segment and the same can thus be said about the letting market in both freehold homes and sectional title homes.
As the suburbs name may suggest, there is a small lake which is ideal for bird watching and walking the pets.
The prime location of the suburb is further apparent when you consider the distances of schools from the suburb. Of which there are a large number nearby such as, St Dunstan’s, Lee Rand Primary School, Laerskool Verkenner and Benoni Primary School.
