East London's Berea was named after the low ridge of hills which runs parallel to the sea (called a berea). The area first came under settler development after 1858, with the arrival at East London of the German peasant agriculturists. Each family was given plots of land at either Panmure or Cambridge, as well as acre lots in North End and Southernwood In 1942 the Cambridge Municipality joined the greater metropolitan area, and Berea became a part of the East London Municipality.
A Berea property is perfect for families wanting the tranquillity of suburbia, yet having the convenience of being close to local attractions and shopping centres. Many of the older homes in Berea that are adjacent to the main transport routes have been converted to office or business accommodation. A number of major schools are very close to Berea, namely: Hudson Park Junior and High Schools, Selborne College and Port Rex Technical School. As a result Berea has a special feeling, not quite a village and yet still having an endearing quaint feel.
East Londons mild climate offers warm water ideal for water sport, which is abundantly available for Berea property owners. The Joan Harrison swimming complex is situated in Selborne adjacent to Berea. Swimming, diving and water polo are all available in close proximity.
Berea has medium sized homes on large erven. There is a well established retirement complex called Berea Gardens in the centre of the suburb and a few two story apartment blocks but generally the skyline is devoid of any high rise buildings.
Berea is a great middle class area with easy access to shops and schools. It is a popular suburb for both up and coming families and retirees. The price of properties range from R 1 500 000 to R 2 500 000.
