Since then, M&T has launched the successful Fish Eagle View in Longlake near the 275-hectare savanna-like grasslands of Modderfontein Reserve, consisting of sectional title apartments with one, two or three bedrooms. Additionally it has launched a new offering in the Westlake area of Modderfontein, called Red Ivory Lane, consisting of one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Units in both developments start at around R700,000, with integrated appliances included.
Fish Eagle View has a swimming pool, indoor gym, fibre to the home (FTTH) connectivity, a day care centre, kids’ play areas and direct access to Modderfontein Reserve. It is also close to the rustic Val Bonne Country Estate and Restaurant, which is popular as a wedding and conference venue.
Red Ivory Lane, meanwhile, offers a clubhouse with swimming pool and braai facilities, as well as TTH, and it is close to Greenstone shopping centre. It is also pet-friendly.
Another attractive development in the Westlake area is Balwin Properties’s Westlake Eco-Estate situated near the Westlake wetland and comprising 770 one-, two- and three-bedroom units, also starting at around R700,000 and fetching rentals of around R7,800 for a one-bedroom unit. It offers a lifestyle centre, swimming pool, jogging/walking trail, boutique gym, restaurant, and braai area.
‘Modderfontein is set to eventually accommodate around 30,000 residential units,’ says David Ingle, Seeff’s MD in Edenvale and Bedfordview. ‘A town centre is planned (to be named “Modderfontein New City’), along with the much anticipated Modderfontein Gautrain station, which will catapult the area into one of Gauteng’s most desired residential locations, as it will be a central urban spine connecting Kempton Park, Midrand, Sandton and Germiston,’ he says.
Busamed hospital serves both Modderfontein and Linbro Park, and schools in the area include Founders Hill Private School, School of Modern Montessori, and The King’s School Linbro Park.
