The exclusive suburb of Ocean View on the South Coast of Durban is a highly sought after residential suburb. Factors which drive this demand are firstly the status as an exclusive suburb then its prime location to commercial and industrial hubs and then the major benefit of the close proximity to the white beaches and tourist attractions.
The mixed property usage caters for young executives seeking the easy lifestyle of either apartments or exclusive townhouses and young to established families seeking the excklusivity in the larger homes.
The general architectural styles in Ocean View could be described as contemporary with a few conventional homes which does in part reflect the reasonably young age of the suburb in terms of residents and its inception. The familial and jovial atmosphere is another factor which draws families to this tranquil suburb with its lush sub-tropical landscaped gardens and stunning views from many of the more privileged homes over to the Indian Ocean and beach below.
The suburbs prime location is highlighted by the many major roads connecting to industrial hubs like Umbilo Industrial and Bay Head with its many container depots and commercial road freight companies.
The redevelopment of Bluff and uShaka Marine World has also in some part contributed to a slight rise in property values and helped with exposure of the exclusive homes in Ocean View. Other major roads like the M4 connect Ocean View to Morningside and Durban North where many of the larger commercial companies have settled and further north to Umhlanga.
Ocean View has the benefit of being located close to the University of KwaZulu-Natal and some popular schools such as Maris Stella School, Durban High School, Sea View Primary School and St Mary’s Marist College.
When uShaka Marine World was launched there were a number of malls that spent a bit of money upgrading to follow trends. Here are some of those malls; The Workshop Shopping Centre, Bluff Towers, Westwood Mall and Beachview Mall.
