In 1904 Roodepoort was established upon the gold fever that encompassed the Witwatersrand precinct.
From a humble ramshackle tent beginning, Roodepoort grew into a large city that was officially proclaimed in 1977.
The hardened miners of the time needed permanent homes and as mining increased homes were built and suburbs began to develop. Today Roodepoort has numerous suburbs, one of which is Roodekrans.
Property in Roodekrans consists of freehold homes, sectional-title townhouse complexes, apartment building complexes and commercial property.
The architectural styles in the suburb are attractive and consist of modern contemporary designs, rectilinear designs, classic contemporary and classic conventional designs. With such a huge architectural platform that has established itself in the suburb, buyers in the middle to high-income groups will find a large home, townhouse or apartment to fit their budget, architectural and lifestyle needs.
Roodekrans is in a privileged position to be located on inclined hills that not only create spectacular architecture but spectacular views. This in turn establishes another dimension in the pricing structure of homes. Landscaped lush green gardens adorn homes adding to the allure for homes in the suburb.
The suburb has convenient access to schools, malls, commercial and industrial precincts in Krugersdorp, the north of Johannesburg and Roodepoort.
Schools close to the suburb are Roodekrans Laerskool, Laerskool Helderkruin, Constantia Kloof Primary Schools and Allen Glen High School.
Malls in and near the suburb are Princess Crossing Shopping Centre, Clearwater Mall and Westgate Shopping Mall.
