For over 20 years Pam Golding Properties has been selling property in Durban - including the Berea, Morningside, Glenwood and the beachfront. We’ve seen the area not only retain its unique character and appeal, but come into its own as an extremely sought after, ‘green’ residential area. 

The Berea, which incorporates Morningside, really has it all, and something to cater for all home buyers – from grand mansions and spacious family residences with beautiful gardens to low maintenance apartments and affordable bachelor pads.

The key to the ongoing demand for homes in the Berea area is its ideal location in close proximity to the city of Durban as well as major access routes to the north, south and west. It’s rare to find an attractive residential area which has all these attributes and more – close to good schools and the university, technikons, appealing shopping centres, an abundance of good restaurants and leisure activities, parks, hospitals and medical facilities and every amenity required. 

The Berea successfully blends the past with the future in terms of architectural design of homes, it’s matured into an area with its own identity, with successful, vibrant nodes, both business and social, catering for people of all ages, from the younger to an older generation, many of whom have remained in the area most of their lives. Others, including professionals and singles, continue to relocate here for the convenient location and lifestyle, where you can have a business meeting at a street coffee shop or offices, meet up with friends or colleagues after work at a pub or restaurant, or jog through the treed avenues, then return home – all within a short radius.

Essenwood (Stephen Dlamini) and Musgrave Roads remain extremely popular with their close proximity to Musgrave Centre, which has undergone a R160 million makeover, restoring it to its former glory. Apartment buildings such as 206 Musgrave Road, Branksome Towers, Hertford House and 741 Musgrave Road are very sought after, with apartments seldom coming onto the open market. 

Durban itself has benefited from the transformation of the beaches and the new promenades which have become globally renowned. KZN Tourism is promoting Durban and its coastline extensively, which has had the positive spin-off of a boost in security and cleanliness along the beachfront, creating an ambience which is desirable to the investment market.

Pam Golding Properties are proud to present a magnificent example of Cape Dutch architecture. Situated in Wallace Rd, prime Morningside, close to top schools & amenities, this home has everything to offer the discerning buyer. The traditional exterior with sash windows & gables belies the contemporary & sometimes quirky finishes inside. The home has been beautifully restored with spacious bedrooms, open plan living in the informal areas as well as a formal lounge and TV lounge. Reception rooms lead out onto generous verandahs surrounding the secluded pool area, creating tranquil areas for relaxation. Two full flats are an added feature. Plenty of drive in access and state of the art security combine to make this a very attractive buy.
