This prestigious suburb offers a mix of of freestanding homes and a smaller number of sectional title developments.

Community involvement has become part of the suburb's character and charm. After the original Oranjezicht homestead was demolished in the 1950s, the area became a bowling green which, over time, had become an unsavoury spot frequented by vagrants and drug dealers.
