Situated on the Southern slope of the Bronberg Mountain, Faerie Glen is one of the most popular suburbs in the New East of Pretoria. This location affords a vast number of properties with spectacular views over our capital city - which reveals in springtime why it has been dubbed ‘The Jacaranda City’. Also contributing to the attraction of this suburb is the protected greenbelt and nature reserve, the proximity to amenities, and easy access to main roads. 

Due to the popularity of the area, the market has remained very stable in the past 5 years. Over this period an average growth margin of between 15% and 19% was the norm, with some years achieving exceptional growth of up to 30%. For the moment it seems that the major part of the new developments in the suburb is coming to an end, so Faerie Glen is finally maturing. It is a vibrant suburb with a culture of constant renewal - be it the upgrading of shopping centres and other amenities or the renovating of homes. This suburb seems always to be on the move.
