The greater Germiston was rooted in the mining industry and when gold reserves were depleted medium to heavy engineering diversified and focused on manufacturing of various sectors like the automotive industry, plastic injection moulding and various construction companies which have all brought a large form of sustainable income to households in the greater Germiston.
Parkhill Gardens is a suburb of Germiston on the east rand. The suburb can be described as a middle-class suburb consisting of large family homes and spacious gardens.
It is very apparent that the suburb is old and well-established from the neat paved walkways in the suburb with tree lined streets which is inviting and appealing with a familial atmosphere.
Suburbs on the east rand have a strong focus on location with the proximity to industrial hubs being the most important factor in driving the demand for homes in specific suburbs. From this it is safe to assume that growth in property values is stable.
Access to industrial hubs is primary but people working within the commercial sector have an equally convenient access to these hubs like Bedfordview, Sandton, Rivonia and Melrose along major roads such as the N17 connecting to the N and onto the M1.
Industrial hubs in close proximity to Parkhill are Wadeville, Junction Hill, Delville and Germiston South to mention but a few.
With the requirement of suburbs to increase population density Parkhill residents have the added benefit of large stands that could be subdivided where placement of the home of the stand permits it which could add greatly to reducing the existing bonds.
Being a well-established suburb brings the benefit of access to popular and equally well-established schools. Here is a list of some of these popular schools; St Catherine’s School, Colin Mann Primary School, Afrikaanse Hoerskool and Germiston South Primary School.
Parkhill has access to large malls such as Golden Walk, Kingfisher Square, East Rand Mall and Newmarket Mall.
