Set in the foothills of the Magaliesberg with a warm climate and many spacious, modern and well-built homes, Ninapark is one of the most ideally located and developed suburbs of Tshwane.
Ninapark holds much development potential: new homes and housing units are going up daily in what is deemed to be one of the most ideally located neighbourhoods of Tshwane.
Perched in the foothills of the Magaliesberg, Ninapark offers wonderful vistas of bushveld and other scenic surrounds, a factor which partly explains the suburb’s perennial popularity with investors.
Willie Wilson of Dormehl Property Group describes Ninapark as a tranquil suburb of beautiful, picturesque trees and gardens, with a sub-tropical climate.
Another estate agent who knows the area very well says: “The weather is nicer and ideal for retirement. It is 5°C warmer there than in Centurion.”
Potential investors can note there are quite a few plots still available for further development. As property and finance specialists contend, owning a newly-developed property saves on transfer costs and requires minimal maintenance for the first few years.
These are some advantages prospective buyers into developments in the area stand to reap.There’s a diverse range in the available housing stock.
“A selection of properties can be found in Ninapark, including retirement homes, luxurious free-standing homes as well as security complexes with full and sectional title properties,” says Wilson.
“Houses are spacious, modern and well-built. Gardens are large enough for families with children, and many homes have swimming pools,” he says.
“These properties are upmarket and modern. Some have fireplaces, pressed ceilings, entertainment areas and built-in braais.
“Buyers are mostly higher income earners, from businesspeople to professionals and executives, as well as others who qualify for housing loans.”
Wilson says property prices range from R1.2 million to R3m plus, for full title properties and R800 000 to R1.5m for sectional titles. Vacant land is obtainable from R300 000 to R550 000.
“The area is more upmarket than Dorandia, Theresapark and Karenpark. An adjacent neighbourhood is Florauna, which is more established.
For mobile, younger, working families with children, Ninapark is comparatively more conveniently situated. It is close to the R80 which links Pretoria to regions further to the north of the city, and to the N4 to Rustenburg. It is also fairly easy to get to places such as Hartbeespoort Dam from the suburb.
“The city and industrial areas are easily accessible. The bus service is expanding and will offer effective alternative transport for the community,” Wilson says.
The convenience of living here is further underscored by proximity to amenities, including schools, churches and shopping centres, within a 5km radius.
“The Wonderpark Shopping Centre is one of the largest shopping malls in Gauteng and offers everything residents might possibly need.” Closer to residents is Ninapark Square, re-branded in 2012. It offers services including a flagship retail convenience store, restaurants, a gym and a pharmacy.
