About the area

Six Fountains is a prestigious and stylish, secure suburb with bushveld surroundings and is situated in the east of Pretoria. The Six Fountains Residential Estate is the main estate of the area and is 6km from the N4 highway, 20km from Pretoria central and less than 30 minutes from Cullinan.

The estate is made up of 192 stands with four small sectional title villages with properties such as apartments, townhouses, cluster homes and stands of over 1,000m². The suburb falls between Von Backstrom Boulevard in the north, Solomon Mahlangu Drive to the west, Ferreira Street and Silverlakes Road in the south, and Gleneagles Drive on the east.

Properties in Six Fountains are modern with top-notch finishes and are built around three inland lakes with hiking trails, tennis courts, swimming pool and clubhouse. Security is a priority in the suburb with strict access control using the latest security measures and security guards patrolling the estate 24 hours a day.
