Posted by Daniel Esterhuyse on 03 Nov 2021 5:54:44 PM

New Protea is the latest suburb in Protea Glen in Soweto by award winning developer Cosmopolitan Projects but, because of a shortage of suitable development land in the area, it will also be their last development in Protea Glen. After this Protea Glen will be SOLD OUT. 

Following international “people first” design principles, New Protea is a beautifully landscaped suburb with children’s play parks and modern designer family homes on large stands.  Besides the existing Protea Glen Ext 28 Primary School and the Acudeo College Protea Glen, additional sites are reserved for 3 more schools, as well as public open spaces and businesses.  

The suburb’s popularity is attributed to its prime location with easy access to Soweto and the South of Johannesburg, the West Rand, the Johannesburg CBD via the N12 and the R558 to Roodepoort.

The suburb was established in 1994 and has grown in popularity as a destination for families looking for good schools, a family friendly neighbourhood and convenient shopping - this includes the Protea Glen mall which is only a 7 minute drive away and has over 90 shops and Glen Ridge Shoprite which stays open until 9 at night.

All houses are free standing, full-title homes, with large private walled gardens and are pet friendly. The homes are fibre ready, have pre-paid electricity meters and energy saving hot water solar geysers pre-installed. Each house is enrolled with the  National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC).

Because the homes are full title you are allowed to change the look of your house, paint it any color you want and even extend your house by adding a bedroom, another bathroom or making the lounge larger.

Standard features included in the price of the housing package are; quality floor tiles throughout, bathroom wall tiles, modern fitted kitchens with built-in oven and hob, built-in bedroom cupboards, aluminium windows with full burglar bars and security gates on the front and back doors with awnings over both doors. All full-title homes are on large walled stands with a vehicle sliding gate, a carport and paved driveway

Prices start from R836 000 for a 2 bedroom single story house; R910 000 for the smallest 3 bedroom home; R1 052 000 for larger 3 bedroom homes and R1 125 000 for the 4 bedroom option with 2 bathrooms and guest toilet.

To qualify for a home loan of R836 000 you will need to earn a combined household income before deductions of around R24 000 per month and for the large 3 bed home costing R910 000 you will need an income of R26 000 before deductions. A large 4 bedroom home requires an income of R32 000.
