Founders Hill Crescent - Blending old and new in Modderfontein
With the advent of underground mining in Johannesburg, came the need to manufacture and sell dynamite. The Modderfontein Dynamite Factory was built, and around it sprung up Modderfontein village, established in 1894 to meet the needs of the growing gold mining industry.
Founders Hill Crescent is a modern lifestyle development, located within the historical mining town of Modderfontein, providing a unique blend of modern living and Johannesburg goldmining history.
The community includes all of the up-to-date features that a discerning buyer or renter could need, such as a guardhouse with access control and round-the-clock security, a clubhouse and swimming pool, braai/picnic spaces, and children's play areas. Under construction in the precinct is the Taroko School, set to open in 2023 and already taking enrolments. The King’s School Linbro Park, Modderfontein Montessori and Modderfontein Primary School, and Founders Hill Private School are all established schools in the area.
With its acres of rolling hilly grasslands, forests and many dams, Taroko Farm and and the Modderfontein Reserve are a haven for indigenous flora and fauna. There are well-maintained cycling and hiking trails, and the vibrant Fourways Farmers’ Market for some weekend browsing and a choice of refreshments and eating spots. Throw a line into the water at Fish Eagle Dam to round off a weekend of relaxation.
Busamed Private Hospital is less than a kilometre away, and Flamingo Shopping Centre and Greenstone Shopping Centre are on your doorstep.
The Sandton CBD is a 20-minute drive, with the N3 and N1 highways just a few minutes away, making it easy to work in the city and enjoy the quiet of the suburbs. A future Gautrain Station is also planned for the area, making commuting to work or the nearby OR Tambo International Airport even easier!
Founders Hill Crescent offers a number of residential options, all with smart metering (electricity/water/gas), fibre-to-home connectivity, gas hob and electric oven, a gas geyser, a gas braai (certain units), and private gardens for ground floor units. What’s more, appliances are included!
