Renting in Noordheuwel

Krugersdorp in general is often overlooked as an option for renting and may be seen by many as a backwater, but the city will surprise you.
The N14 highway that leads to Fourways, Sandton, Centurion and on to Pretoria dissects Krugersdorp and there is easy and almost immediate access at most times of day. Peak travel times to these cities from Krugersdorp are by far the shortest of any city on the Westrand. Lanseria International Airport is conveniently 20 minutes from Krugersdorp.
The City is known for its premier schools with some of the top academic and sports schools in the country being Hoerskool Noordheuwel, Krugersdorp High and Monument High. The very popular affordable private school option, Curro Independent Schools, has three schools in Krugersdorp. These Curo schools cater to all ages and are all within 3kms of the suburb of Noordheuwel.
Krugersdorp is culturally rich and diverse. Known for its eclectic coffee shops, superb restaurants and proximity to The Cradle of Humankind, Silverstar Casino and the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens.
