New Randburg development

Units at the newly launched The Risidale development in Randburg are priced from R799 000.

A new development ideal for first-time buyers, young families and those scaling down has been launched in the established suburb of Risidale in Randburg, Gauteng.

Units at The Risidale are priced from R799 000 for one-bedroom units with one bathroom and from R1.5 million for two-bedroom units with private gardens, say Pam Golding Properties Randburg agents, Eloise Matthee and Chrispin Ntambwe.

They say Risidale is a very established area with some older complexes and The Risidale, with its modern luxury finishes, will add to the suburb offering and attract news buyers into the area.

“Construction has been completed and units are ready for occupation. Buyers don’t have to pay transfer duty and levies are very low when buying from the developer.”

There are 78 units ranging in size from 47m2 to 79m2 with finishes including engineered stone counter tops.

Each ground floor unit has a private garden and a covered patio and upstairs units have balconies.

Amenities include a communal pool and a clubhouse and landscaped gardens throughout the complex. There are allocated parking bays as well as visitors’ parking, and security features include controlled access.

The agents say buyers are attracted to Risidale because of its convenient and central location close to main roads such as Beyers Naude making it easy for commuters who use public transport. Schools in the area include Risidale Primary School, Franklin D Roosevelt Primary School, Roosevelt High school, Linden Hoërskool, Louw Geldenhuys Laerskool, Northcliff Primary School, Northcliff High school, Northwest Christian School, Crossroads School and Casa do Sol School.

For shopping, residents are spoilt for choice with malls including the renovated Cresta Shopping Centre, Verdi Shopping Centre, Impala Centre, Northcliff Corner and Heathway Shopping Centre. Other places of interest close by include Emmarentia Dam, the Botanical Gardens and the Melville Koppies Nature Reserve.

“Risidale is a very popular and relatively small area with 129 freehold houses and 72 sectional title units. Residents tend to stay on for quite a number of years, and property turnover is low,” say Matthee and Ntambwe.
