Howick: Advantages of living in a small town that offers everything
The Midlands town is located on the N3 national freeway connecting it with the rest of the country. This means there is direct access to market for the dairies and other commercial initiatives requiring sound transport infrastructure.
Access to land
Given the predominantly rural landscape and the number of farms on the market, there are opportunities for acquiring land and establishing new businesses or growing existing ones. The town has become synonymous with retirement living and developers are constantly seeking out new opportunities.
A gentler pace of life
Howick has all the advantages of a smaller town – access to outstanding schools, including some of South Africa’s most prestigious; good infrastructure and services; and sound shopping opportunities – but avoids the hustle and bustle of city life. Nature dominates, including the spectacular Howick Falls.
Howick is situated within 90 minutes of the Durban transport infrastructure, including the port and King Shaka International Airport, and is about five hours from South Africa’s economic hub in Gauteng. This promises commercial ventures access to markets and developers opportunities to bring to the market initiatives within a prime urban-rural location.
