Red Hill in Durban North can be described as a middle-class suburb with a mixed property use which comprises of freehold homes, commercial and industrial property.
The mixed property use is one major contributing factor adding to demand for homes in the suburb.
There are a number of vacant stands which are being earmarked for sectional-title development like townhouses and clusters which are freehold homes. This will add to demand for homes in the suburb and bring a newer architecture to the suburb as many of the homes are more conventional.
As for the prime location of the suburb, not enough can be said as it is in a well-developed commercial hub and of course the industrial hub making travel to the office convenient. People working further afield have easy access to the N2 freeway and other roads such as Umgeni Road, the Inanda Highway and Queen Nandi Drive.
Of course having Durban North as a neighbor does add to good exposure for Red Hill in the market.
The prime location of the suburb is further enhanced when looking at the distance of amenities like schools and malls and of course tourist attractions.
Located on the KZN coast means the suburbs should not be overlooked as a second holiday retreat as the suburb like its neighbors has a stable growth in property values with developing prospects like granny flats on existing properties as a large number of the stands are large enough to do so. Only 5 km from suburbs like La Lucia puts the beachfront in an ideal location removed from the bustle of peak season tourist bringing tranquility to the holiday home.
For permanent residents there are a number of reputable schools such as Greenwood Park Primary School, Effingham Primary School, Durban Girls College and Durban Boys College.
Exclusive malls close to Red Hill are La Lucia Mall, The Pavilion Centre and Kloof Village Mall.
