Zwartkop is located in the heart of Centurion and offers residents an urban but tranquil, community-oriented lifestyle on the hills, southwest of the Centurion Lake
About the area:
Established in the mid-1980s when Centurion Mall and the waterfront were developed, the focus of this new and upmarket extension was on meeting the demand for residential areas located close to the growing business hubs of Midrand and Centurion.
Zwartkop’s proximity to the N14 on its western border, the N1 to the southeast and the R21 not very far off, minimises travel time between Gauteng’s major metros and offers comfortable access to public transport infrastructure: for example, the Gautrain network, OR Tambo and Lanseria international airports.
Today, this leafy and well-established neighbourhood with impressive views over the lakeside, SuperSport Park and most eastern suburbs of the Jacaranda City, offers an array of property for buying or renting options. Clients can choose from quaint entry-level townhouses to multimillion properties suitable for corporate entertaining, luxurious guest houses or home-based professional businesses. Most of these are freestanding properties situated within boomed-off areas offering top-notch security and peace of mind.
Regardless of the suburb’s central location to all of greater Centurion’s business, shopping, educational, medical and excellent entertainment and sporting amenities, Zwartkop’s elevated location creates quiet living space at a comfortable distance from the bustle below. The surrounding areas of Hartbeespoort Dam, Magaliesburg and Muldersdrift also offer countryside weekend breakaways within comfortable travelling distance. Residents can become members of one or more of the various resident’s associations and/or community initiatives in the area actively working towards community participation and cohesion.
Centurion also has a fast-growing and active local business chamber. In April 2016 it was reported in the local media that Centurion and its surrounds had the highest investment growth rate in the City of Tshwane Metropole.
The central location minutes away from the highways saves an enormous amount of time in traffic. Personally, as a runner and fitness person, I enjoy training on the hills in a safe and secure area.
