Who is typically buying property in Lyttleton Manor currently? I find younger generations are moving back from estates and complexes and are more likely to buy family homes in Lyttelton Manor because they get value for money. They receive the space, bigger gardens and rooms, as well as privacy, which means they can work from home, receive an extra income from renting out the cottage next to the house or can have the whole family living together in one space. Most buyers purchase property by comparison and elimination and Lyttelton Manor provides beautiful properties mostly with realistic pricing. Potential buyers are eliminated when property is out-priced, therefore full-title property is high in demand.

The area comprises full- and sectional-title residential dwellings, smallholdings as well as commercial, business and industrial developments with prices varying in terms of offering.

What do you love about Lyttleton Manor?

Lyttleton Manor has a warm and hospitable community with friendly and caring neighbours as well as convenient shopping facilities nearby. The properties and buildings have a rich historical look, and while they may be old, they are beautiful and still in good condition. Public transport in the area has been upgraded in recent years allowing residents to enjoy a relaxing commute to and from the suburb. One of the cutest sights seen in the area is the elderly people having fun on their way to the mall using their motorised scooters often racing each other.

Centurion East
From countryside to city in minutes
This suburb has become a ‘lifestyle of choice’ for many who don’t want to live in Johannesburg or Pretoria, yet need easy access to both. There are many lifestyle estates in the area which offer residents a good selection of safe, high quality property options. These gated villages have attracted a cosmopolitan community and Centurion functions as something of a mini city of its own. Although it retains a country-feel, residents can be on one of the major roadways to the big cities within minutes.
