Meerhof in the Northwest Province is one of those rare gems of a suburb which is set in a tranquil almost bushveld setting with lush trees and the water’s edge of the Swartspruit.
The suburb can be described as middle to upper-class income suburb with the benefit of the tranquility.
The suburb has not yet reached its full potential in terms of property or rather land usage with scores of vacant land still available at reasonable prices and stands in the region of 1000 m2 and up with pricing in the range of the mid R400 000 mark which by any standard is very affordable.
Then there are the freehold homes with a mixture of architecture with conventional and designer homes and some that blend in with the surroundings constructed of grass thatch, apartments and townhouse complexes.
The demand of property in the suburb is thus an indication that the perceived remote location is only a myth. When looking at the number of new developments under construction in the sectional title market then the demand speaks of a stable expanding suburb.
The proximity to Brits with its major industrial and smaller commercial hubs is nearby and to travel to towns like Sandton, Fourways or Bryanston is roughly 45 minutes’ drive making it worthwhile for those seeking the closeness of nature and tranquility. Major roads that connect the suburbs are the R511 and N4 freeways south and north.
The other form of property use to the region to consider will be B&B’s and guest houses which are ideal as there are a number of tourist attractions in the region due to the proximity of the suburb to the Swartspruit and the Magaliesrivier.
The importatnt amenities like schools and malls are catered in towns and suburbs like Brits. Here is a list of some of the more popular schools like Laerskool Generaal Hendrik Schoeman, Doxa Deo School Hartebees Poort and Pecanwood College.
