Vorna Valley was renowned for the milk and cheese that came from a Lithuanian family.
Over time it became a populated area and was established as a township in 1970. It was then later incorporated into the grater Midrand and this gave rise to a growth in popularity of the suburb. At first, it was mostly smallholdings but today it is a mixture of smallholding properties and standard residential family homes apartment complexes and townhouse complexes. The suburb is today considered to be in a prime location which further adds to the appeal of the suburb as a residential address.
Property values also reflect the high degree of demand for homes in the suburb and one could argue that it has further increased when the Gautrain terminal of Midrand was complete.
The suburb offers easy access to reputable private and public schools, industrial and commercial nodes in Midrand and further afield to Sandton and the other end to Centurion and Hatfield Pretoria. For the younger generation, there is access to all the best night spots in Midrand and surroundings and of course malls like The Mall of Africa.
The architecture of the suburb is a time capsule capturing the decades of progress to the modern architecture which is now the standard and also contributes to the steady growth in property values.
Of course, the young professionals are more attracted to the sectional-title market firstly for its affordability and secondly for the easy carefree lifestyle townhouses and apartments offer. It must be noted that the townhouses and apartment complexes are modern and well-priced for the young professionals’ budgets.
