Douglasdale Properties

 Douglasdale property affords its residents a convenient location in a delightful middle to upper middle class residential suburb, once part of the old Randburg municipality prior to its incorporation into the Johannesburg Metro. It is situated between Bryanston West, Johannesburg North and Fourways to its immediate north. Main access is from the Bryanston / Fourways N1 interchange onto William Nicol and into Leslie West, from Hornbill Avenue in the north or from Witkoppen Road south up Douglas Drive.

 

It is beautifully situated on a north facing gradient with majestic views to the Magaliesberg.

Douglasdale’s history can be traced back to the 1890’s. Thomas and Janet Douglas, Scottish emigrants, bought a farm overlooking the Klein Jukskei River and called it Douglasdale Farm. The farmhouse, one of the oldest homes in the north, was built in 1905 and from here the family started producing milk in the 1930’s. Douglasdale Dairy has subsequently become a major supplier of milk in Gauteng, still operating from the original site, now part of Bryanston West. The northern part of the farm was sub-divided and both areas were intersected by the new N1 at the time.

The Douglasdale property area today is mainly a residential suburb but has in the last 10 years enjoyed some of its own retail support services. The most significant change in its landscape, has been in the nature and character of its property and resident profile. Much of the older Douglasdale property, (larger family properties) has been bought up, rezoned and developed into large, multiple-unit, sectional title lifestyle townhouses. In addition, a number of very exclusive, upmarket and also medium density, less expensive, free hold cluster schemes have been built. From the slightly more mature resident owner profile, Douglasdale has become a suburb largely populated by a younger, upwardly mobile working class, both singles/couples and young families. Such demand from this younger generation makes investor buying for rental, a very attractive proposition.

Because of its close proximity to Fourways, Pineslopes and Magaliessig, there are multiple attractions to draw one to Douglasdale property, including the best wining and dining in the new north. One can shop at Fourways Mall, The View, The Crossing in Pineslopes, at Cedar Square, The Design Quarter, at Monte Casino, Sloane Square, Bryanpark, Epsom Downs, the Bryanston Wedge, The Posthouse or at its own, The Buzz or Douglasdale Village. You have the choice of Fourways High, Crawford and numerous other schools like Dainfern College, Brescia House, Bryanston High, Bryneven, St Stithians, Heron Bridge, The Michael Mount Waldorf School or Kings College.

You have 5 different Virgin or Planet Fitness Centres to choose from as well as leading hospitals or clinics like Fourways Intercare Clinic, Fourways Life Hospital, Fourways Health Centre,  or the Bryanston Medical Centre (NHC).

Cinemas and theatres are found in Fourways Mall, Cedar Square and in the Monte Casino Centre. Douglasdale is also close to the Bryanston Sports Club, Bryanston Country Club and Dainfern Golf Club.

Norscot Koppies in Fourways is a protected natural parkland and the area borders onto Robyn and Juweel Parks which follow the river course of the Klein Jukskei. There are Methodist Churches in Lonehill and in Bryanston, Anglican churches in Mount Street, Kengies and Sunninghill and Catholic churches. New Life Churches are found on the Bryanston and in Lonehill.

From a purely investment point of view, Douglasdale property, with its changing resident profile, is attracting a younger, upwardly mobile executive class, not only as owners but also as rental tenants. These people are drawn not only by the quieter ambience of the suburb but also by its close proximity to the major shopping, service and entertainment centres right on its boundaries.
