Property for sale in Kempton Park (GPS: 26.0944° S / 28.2293° E) puts investors and residents in a bustling and historic area of Johannesburg. Governed by the Ekurhuleni municipality, it’s located on the west border of the CBD, just south of Tembisa and is one of the most popular residential suburbs in this part of Gauteng. If you’re thinking about investing in property here then definitely read on for more information about what to expect in the property market here as well as the lifestyle benefits.
The area of Kempton Park used to be two Afrikaaner-owned farmlands, named Zuurfontein and Rietfontein. During the JHB Gold Rush, a railway line was constructed to connect what is now known as Pretoria and Vereeniging. The shortest route was to cut through these two farms and build a station on the Zuurfontein property, bypassing Johannesburg completely. This station quickly became a location where farmers gathered for their supplies. Eventually, as the location grew in popularity, the land of Zuurfontein was sub-divided into residential plots and named Kempten, after the German town in Bavaria. Today, it’s most notably known for hosting the OR Tambo International, Africa’s busiest Airport.
Johannesburg is renowned for the abundance of trees and plant life growing within the city, adding a touch of nature to an urban setting – in fact, there’s approximately 1.2 million trees within the city.
