Pretoria estate agents discuss the property market in Six Fountains.
What attracts buyers to Six Fountains?
Nestled east of Pretoria, Six Fountains Residential Estate is fast becoming a place to live peacefully and securely and where you can enjoy nature and wildlife. The estate provides a country lifestyle with the comforts of living in town. Residents have fairly quick access to major routes in and out of Pretoria and have Six Fountains Lifestyle Centre with a garden and home centre right next door. Various stores and amenities such as good schools and hospitals are located within close proximity. This is a great estate that tends to see owners sticking around and new homeowners wanting into the estate.
What types of properties are typically available in Six Fountains?
There is a good mixture of sectional title and full title properties. Sectional title properties range from apartments to townhouses and cluster homes, while full title properties tend to have large stands of over 1,000m² in size and range from R3m to R5,5m. The first phase of the estate is almost fully built with only a few stands available and the second phase is now being prepared. Capital growth values guarantee good investment growth for existing homes in phase one. The lifestyle on offer includes many green belts, walkways and beautiful scenery along the dam where one can enjoy family picnics and watch beautiful birdlife from the bird hide.
How has Six Fountains changed over the past five years?
Six Fountains is a well-established security estate offering upper-market homes which has been especially popular with young professionals over the last five years. With beautiful walkways, nature and birdlife, Six Fountains offers a less rushed lifestyle in the city and is a secure investment. The estate is a new development and phase two of the estate is sure to sell out as quickly as phase one, once launched. An investment in Six Fountains is sure to grow in coming years with the new R44bn project, where the Gautrain will expand routes to the area, a hospital, huge mall and roads connecting the N4 to R21 highway will be developed.
