The suburb of Edenvale
forms part of Modderfontein
, and falls under the East Rand
division of the Gauteng
Province. Modderfontein is the industrial area in which Edenvale
is found, and is well known for manufacturing explosives.
Edenvale is an ideal area to live in as it’s located halfway between O.R. Tambo International Airport
and the city of Johannesburg
, providing a convenient base for the business commuter.
This town dates back to 1903, when Cornish Miners settled here after the Boer War.
In addition to being close to the CBD of Joburg, Edenvale is also within close proximity to many retail outlets, such as the Eastgate
and East Rand shopping malls, and Bruma
Lake, which hosts the largest flea market in South Africa; entertainment and sports facilities, such as the Linksfield
Golf Course; and a wide variety of restaurants.
Edenvale is a very quiet suburb, popular with young families, and available properties range from moderate in areas such as Eastleigh
, to upper class in areas such as the sought-after Bedfordview
. Other areas of residential interest include De Klerkshof, Elma Park
, Dowerglades, Eden Glen
and River Ridge.
