Natural Wonders at Heron Hill I swear if I ever bought into properties within Heron Hill, it would be so that I could live closer to this new-found treasure that we had stumbled upon. It was as though God himself (or herself) had accidently-on-purpose spilled a bucket of magic, and the result was what lay before me. A waterfall, a lake surrounded by cliffs – and as I watched, body after body would fling themselves off the edge of said cliffs into the abyss, a look of sheer ecstasy coming across their faces as they lay suspended in nothingness, before breaking the water with a deafening crash, returning to the surface, the aforementioned look of ecstasy now replaced with a sheer disbelief in what had just happened.

Malls at Heron Hill “How does this fit into the opening paragraph’s description of amenities?” Cool it, I know you’ve been stuck in traffic for a while, but I’m getting there. And in arriving at my point I say: Imagine if said traffic could be avoided, while still allowing you to enjoy a shopping experience that lets you take your time in making sure you have everything you need (we all know the head-slap – the one we give ourselves when we’re unpacking the groceries and realise we forgot the ice-cream cake…or whatever else you deem as the utmost importance on your shopping list), and still have time to browse a few of your favourite stores on the way out. Sound a bit too good to be true? Not for those who live within the properties of Heron Hill it’s not, as they will surely attest. For when you live mere minutes away from lifestyle centres such as Woodlands Boulevard, the feeling of having everything you need, everything you want, and everything you want to need and need to want, at your fingertips, will become natural – as though it were always meant to be. The incredible array of stores that stand ready to fulfil your every need as a 21st century shopper see an incredible selection in terms of the very the best in brand name items, whether sporting, fashion or culinary in character.

A Description in Heron Hill As with a blank canvas, the artists brush poised above her palette, the land awaits the marvels that are to come in complimenting the already existing natural beauty that graces the African landscape that we all know and love. For it is with expert craftsmanship that development has begun to alter the once open spaces on the savannahs of the peninsula as we construct and create the very edifices that put us the map as the planet’s dominant species. The houses, soon to be homes, already standing, see the use of gorgeous architectural techniques in the evolution of modern ideas of living – however, we shall not forget our roots; In a hat tip to the tried and trusted methods of old, the use of north-south facing homesteads sees the incorporation of natural light, which means that houses built within the enclosure receive maximum exposure to the nourishing, natural rays, said rays surpassing any and all attempts in its emulation. The house themselves adhere to strict architectural guidelines, meaning that at no point will any brick be out of place, any pillar lay askew nor any home be of sub-standard levels – in short, nothing but the most exquisite is accepted here in ensuring the utmost value with regards to the quality of living for those who would call Heron Hill home.

Security at Heron Hill Safety is a mind-set – I quite like that description. As opposed to the pages and pages in technical description of exactly how high the voltage of an electric fence is, or how much steel alloy was used to reinforce the perimeter walls, or just how high the resolution is on the CCTV cameras that dot the enclosure, I feel that real safety is felt when you simply do not realise its existence. When you are able to go to bed with the windows open, or fall asleep without care nor concern for the wellbeing of your vehicle as it you didn’t pull it into the double garage, but rather parked it in the drive way, or even leaving the front door unlocked – when any or all of the aforementioned is the case, and you still manage pass out without the niggling feeling or, as is the case many times, the burning fear that you’ve forgotten something that puts you and your family in jeopardy, that is when safety is truly felt. And it is this feeling that Heron Hill strives to emulate in every way through its comprehensive take on security matters.

Nightlife at Heron Hill It’s definitely easier when you live close to where said nights are had. I mean I don’t even live at Heron Hill and it took me all of ten minutes, with traffic, to get to where the festivities took place (and good god did they take place, but more on that later). The excellent proximity of the clubs, pubs, bars and restaurants to all those who call the eastern suburbs of the capital home means that no matter what you’re feeling for – a romantic date with your better half, or a party to remember with the mates (possibly to meet the one whom you can take out on the aforementioned romantic date) – the answer is literally around the corner. From the famed Tiger Tiger, where the in-house DJ’s do their best to provide you with the bass that keeps blazing out the speakers, complimented with international acts and themed parties to rival those of Ibiza (yes, pronounced “I-bi-tha”) – The Halloween party earlier this year? You ever watched The Walking Dead? Like that, but somehow everyone still looked hella sexy. Albeit sexy zombies, but let’s not argue over semantics no? My point is, if you’re a creature of the night and hate the commute that it takes to get your body grinding on a dance floor to the beats of Africa, then properties in Heron Hill is something you should seriously think about investing in.
