Life in a unique urban village
Pretoria Moot is North of central Pretoria. It is bordered by Meintjieskop to the south, Skurweberg or Vlakkopies to the north. The Pretoria Moot area has a strong sense of community with generations returning to live in the unique ‘urban village’ setting. The current Home Owners and Residents Association strives to maintain the restful atmosphere and currently employs a private security company, on behalf of the residents, to aid with crime prevention. This is proving to be effective and is supported by the South African Police. This unique atmosphere and the semi – rural setting of the suburb contribute strongly to its ongoing popularity and good capital growth. A further unique factor is the Academic Hospital which is located 3kms beyond the area. A number of specialising doctors leave and arrive annually and seek to buy property close to the hospital for the period of their specialisation.
It's all about family
