Drummond: Life outside the cities means space, peace and history


There is tranquillity about living beyond the city – open green space, no traffic noise
and clean air. The private boys’ high school Kearsney College was established in Bothas Hill in 1921 and ranks among the country’s best. 
The Valley of 1000 Hills has been home to generations of people, many of whom are seeking employment and upliftment opportunities.
Redevelopment and investment opportunities
The change of pace and lifestyle means large estates and tracts of land are no longer popular, given their expensive upkeep. Urban development westwards has also raised the attractiveness of acquiring agricultural commercial land and redeveloping it into
housing estates.

While situated on the original old main road between Durban and Pietermaritzburg,
the area is easily accessible to the M13 eastwards to Pinetown and Durban as well as the national freeway N3 between Durban and Gauteng. 

Comrades Marathon front row seats 
As an added advantage, the stretch of road promises sporting enthusiasts front row seats for the annual Comrades Marathon between Durban and Pietermaritzburg. The ultra-marathon tracks the old transport route between the two cities and is globally recognised for its camaraderie and athletic demands.
