Country living and good schools in Centurion's Southdowns Estate

07 Nov 2019

In an idyllic setting in the heart of Irene, Centurion, Southdowns Estate situated just off the N1 highway, offers a choice of properties for sale and family living at its best where kids can walk to school and grow up in country surrounds.

Inspired by the natural surrounds, this designer home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, sprawling entertaining spaces which flow outside from all the indoor areas, gourmet kitchen and more. It is priced at R14.5 million - click here to view.

Michelle Nieuwoudt, an agent with Seeff Centurion, says Southdowns is marketed as “a life less hurried”, and even though this is exactly what it offers being far enough from the city’s hustle and bustle, it is still within close proximity to all the important activities, amenities and places of employment. 

“Situated less than 3km from the Centurion Gautrain Station, Southdowns appeals to many different people. The estate is especially popular among professionals who enjoy farm living, but who still need to be close to the fast pace of the city”. 

This three bedroom, three bathroom home in Southdowns Estate has a landscaped lush garden, braai area and pool. It is on the market for R5.25 million - click here to view.

Nieuwoudt says young professionals and graduates who are planning families make up a big portion of recent buyers in Southdowns.  

“The estate appeals especially to young families and those planning families soon - not only because of the high-quality schools within the estate, but also because Southdowns offers a safe and friendly environment to raise a family.  

The different property types here also cater for many life stages, from sectional title units (Paddocks and Lofts) for singletons and couples who don’t have children to small family homes for young families and larger homes for more established family buyers”.  

This luxury home in Southdowns Estate, Centurion, has four bedrooms with views over the pasture, three-and-a-half bathrooms, country-style kitchen, wraparound veranda, pool and more. It is selling for R13 million - click here to view.

Nieuwoudt says property prices in Southdowns start at around R2.99 million for sectional title units of around 226sqm in Lofts and Paddocks, R4.15 million to R4.45 million for two or three bedroom freehold of around 622sqm and R5.5 million to R13 million and higher for large freehold homes.  

The rental market in Southdowns is very popular as well because of the Estate’s well-positioned location, she adds.

“Many people who rent here are the parents of children who are attending any of the prestigious schools in the estate. Living in the estate when your children attend a school here is a big bonus as working parents save both time and money when they don’t have to arrange au pairs or transport. Children can walk to and from school within the estate. 

“The school, pasture, Irene Dairy Farm as well as the Irene Country club are also right on your doorstep and the estate offers direct access via walking, golf carts and cycling to all these based on a fingerprint system.  

“Included also in the levies of Southdowns is social membership of the Irene Country Club for the whole family”.  

Nieuwoudt says Southdowns is also an environmentally sustainable estate. “While the estate is an aesthetically appealing built environment, the sense of place of Irene is still ensured. Ecologically diverse systems are created and maintained by conserving natural areas and planting indigenous trees, shrubs and other plants amongst others.”
