Olympus Country Estate is one of many newer security and lifestyle estates located in the most popular region within Pretoria namely the east of Pretoria.
As estates go the property is aimed at the middle to upper-class income groups with space, quality and exclusivity in mind. The mixed property use which comprises sectional-title townhouse complexes and freehold homes means the middle-class income group can still have the benefit of the exclusivity and some degree of affordability that comes with living in an estate and of course the most important factor, stable growth in property values.
Demand for property in estates will always be a determining factor and the sale of these exclusive properties is by no means an indication of a perceived bubble that will burst at some stage, the property values are in line with what the individual properties offer in terms of finishings and space which does come at the higher premium.
To elaborate on why Pretoria East is in such high demand is a matter for later discussion but here are some factors that are tangible, proximity to good schools, infrastructure like roads and the convenience they offer to reach commercial hubs and alternative modes of transport like the Gautrain, and of course retail malls which are another convenience factor and connecting to suburbs like Centurion, Midrand and Sandton are not as much of an inconvenience as in past years.
Here is a list of some of the roads that convenience travel, Midas Road to De Villebois Mereuil Road, Olympus Drive, Atterbury Road and Solomon Mahlangu Drive which connects to Waterkloof and the R21 north and South.
The east has its fair share of popular schools with various achievements like Hoerskool Garsfontein, Woodhill College and Laerskool Garsfontein.
Of malls there are too many to mention but here are a few for even the most discerning shoppers like Woodlands Boulevard, Menlyn Mall and Morelata Square.
