Today, Rivonia has lots to offer residential buyers and property developers – and as a high-density residential node, it looks set to boom in coming years. Whether you’re looking for a modern sectional title or a thatch-style family home, Rivonia offers great value for money and is located close to shops, restaurants, schools and entertainment options.

“I love living in Rivonia as the properties provide a tranquil and country-like feel to them. This, coupled with good security, allows for a great family environment. Rivonia also has great restaurants, spas, a library, plus easy access to Sandton, the highway and the Gautrain bus route.”
