Umhlanga Ridge is a highly sought after developing suburb with a mixed use which consists of apartments, commercial property and residential property.
Situated just west of Umhlanga Rocks and the M4 means the suburb is slightly younger thus it has an appeal to the younger prestigious market which is also conveyed in the contemporary architecture.
The fact that there is commercial property in the suburb means it is as trendy and has the same idea as that of Sandton in Gauteng where the executives can live close to the office in the same degree of comfort and opulence as a spacious residential home.
These are also factors that have determined property values and an increasing demand for the exclusivity the apartments offer and are also spacious enough to serve as residential family homes for those who prefer the security and lock-up and go convenience apartments offer.
Residential homes are mostly more mansions and have a familial atmosphere which is evident from the landscaped gardens and tree lined streets.
The prime location of Umhlanga Ridge extends to other suburbs with major access roads like the M41 and the N2 within easy access.
Many of the newer developed apartment buildings compete with the rest of South Africa in terms of exclusivity and amenities and they have succeeded when one takes into account the sales figures and increasing demand for more exclusive apartments.
The second holiday home market is also just as active due to the status of the suburb and of course the proximity to tourist attractions and amenities.
For the permanent residents there are a number of private and public schools to choose from with reputable reputations such as Hamptons Primary School, Crawford Schools La Lucia, Vega School Durban and Umhlanga College.
Entertainment in Umhlanga Ridge will spoil tourists and residents alike with choices to make from the many restaurants and hotels and malls such as Gateway Theatre of Shopping and The Crescent Shopping Centre.
