Midrand Carlswald is the area halfway between the Witwaterstrand and Pretoria, built around the N1 highway. It is made up of several suburbs including Carlswald, Beaulieu, Glen Austin, Glenferness, Halfway Gardens, Summerset, Blue Hills, Erand, President park and Randjesfontein. My favourite thing I love about living in Midrand is the peaceful atmosphere and it is centrally located and secure.
The reason I chose to stay in Carlswald because it is trendy and urban and has classy estates. Hilltop lofts is one of the complexes, which is highly secured, with private access through heavily manned security gate houses that operates 24/7. It is fully walled with electric fence.
Hilltop 173 is a Fully furnished apartment I lived with my husband and 6-year-old daughter. It is a fully furnished 2-bedroom apartment and 1 bathroom located on the 1st floor. This unit is beautiful and has modern finishes including kitchen with built in cupboards, basic kitchen appliances and other amenities. The 2-bedroom house has all the bedding as well as fitted cupboards. The lounge area has a family TV room and couch. The unit also have a private balcony where we could relax with my family or read a magazine.
My favourite hobby was shopping, and the greatest advantage is that it is just close to the Carlswald Lifestyle Shopping Centre, occasionally I would visit child friendly restaurants such as Wimpy, McDonalds and Steers with my daughter and husband. I would drive my daughter to Halfway Primary School but there are also other close schools such as Blue Hills College, Midrand Primary School, Glen Austin High School, Cedarwood etc. The hospitals are also in proximity such as Netcare Carlswald Pharmacy and Medi – Clinic Hospitals.
Hilltop lofts complex offers a clubhouse for different events, a swimming pool where I would relax during a hot day and a communal braai where we would spend some of our week weekends chilling with friends. It has 2 covered parking’s and visitors parking.
The Gautrain station in the area and the N1 highway runs right through the middle of it making it ideal for commuters heading both north and south that is why I chose to stay in the area because it is easily accessible and very close to my workplace.
My favourite part was spending time at home, as the complex is tranquil and peaceful. I love living in Hilltop lofts because of its accessibility and amenities.
