Paulshof Properties

Paulshof is that quiet, fairly central, upper middle-class residential suburb north of Petervale and the Rivonia extensions, east of Lonehill, west of Sunninghill, with Leeukop Estate on its northern boundary. Today, Paulshof property has a bustling business and commercial strip along the length and on both sides of Witkoppen Road. Its main access is from Witkoppen Road, east to Sunninghill and west to Fourways, Cambridge Road from the Bryanston side, and is minutes from N1 circular highway via the Rivonia interchange. Originally part of Sandton, Paulshof property is now part of the Greater Johannesburg Municipal Council Region A.  

 

Paulshof was originally named after Paul Mare, who farmed this part of the greater Rietfontein Farm. His sons continued to live in the area until quite recently. Another farmer in the area called Laing, called his Paulshof property Kildrummy, and Paulshof, for a while, became known as Kildrummy-Paulshof. A dispute arose and in the late 1970’s, in an effort to promote Afrikaans suburban names, the suburb was renamed Paulshof – the Garden Village of the North. 

The Paulshof property precinct runs from Main Road Bryanston to Link or Rivonia Road extension. Paulshof property can be split into 5 main sectors, not geographically spread, and comprises a quiet, green, cosy suburban node of single family homes; areas of high density sectional title townhouses which serve as a buffer zone between suburb and the busy road; office parks, north and south of Witkoppen Road; 2 busy commercial nodes, one west and one east, with business services - mainly motor, building/hardware and allied; and lastly, the Cambridge Crossing retail shopping centre with restaurants and basic community services. 

There are 3 main types of residential Paulshof property available – formal, 3/4 bedroom single family homes on mainly 1, 000m² stands; sectional title, high/low density, studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom townhouse developments, built mainly in the 1990’s and recently in 2005-2007; and small, full title secure cluster complexes. 

Office parks are essentially smaller, A-grade type office buildings and commercial property is mainly of the service centre, retail showroom type with small warehousing and distribution points. 

The Residents and Ratepayers Association (PRRA), who separate Paulshof property into 4 areas of management control, is very committed to not only the maintenance of its green heritage, the parks, trails, river and spruit areas, but also to the prevention and elimination of crime. 

Paulshof has, as it greatest pride, its beautiful parks, conservation and river areas such as the Rietfontein Ridge, Jukskei River Trail and the Braamfontein Spruit. It actively drives a greenbelt project team for the ultimate benefit of the area and its residents. 

The Cambridge Crossing mainly caters for retail communal services, but also has a number of restaurants, cafes and bistros. The spiritual needs of the community are mainly catered for by a Methodist Church in Lonehill, a Catholic Church in Woodmead, The Anglican in Sunninghill and a Synagogue/Shul in Morningside. The nearest hospital is the renowned Sunninghill off Witkoppen Road and there is a Virgin Active up the road at Chilli Lane in Sunninghill, with a Planet Fitness in Fourways. Paulshof has the Rivonia Recreation Club in the suburb and one is not too far from the Megawatt Park Club and the German Country Club. 

St. Peters Prep is the best known school in Paulshof, but the Rivonia Primary, Michael Mount in Bryanston and Crawford College in Lonehill are not that far away. 

The Garden Village of the North, as Paulshof is called, is a highly desirable middle to upper income suburban place to live. It has retained its almost rural character and yet its central situation affords quick, easy access to business and commercial centres, as well as recreation and entertainment. The Residents and Ratepayers Association have made a huge contribution toward the maintenance of property values and the excellent resale potential of Paulshof property
