Welcome to Centurion, a rapidly growing city that is nestled at the intersection of N1 and N14 Highways between Midrand and Pretoria. Before it fell under the City of Tshwane Metropolitan municipality, Centurion was an independent municipality, with its own town council.
Centurion is a burgeoning modern city offering a wide range of properties to suit different budgets and many types of buyers, from those seeking an urban lifestyle close to the Gautrain station, office parks and transport routes, to those looking for homes in “country” estates that offer convenience and security combined with a more relaxed ambience.
With an expansion of Johannesburg, Midrand and Pretoria, many businesses are now relocating to Centurion, turning it into an ideal residential area for business-people and their families. Centurion offers its current and prospective residents a trendy urban lifestyle along with a tranquility of a country side, a combination that most home buyers dream of. The ongoing demand for property in Centurion is largely due to its central location, and easy access to Gauteng's major cities such as Johannesburg, Midrand, Krugersdorp, Kempton Park, Germiston and Pretoria makes it a perfect home for public transport commuters as well. Other than the N1, N14 and R21 Highways passing through Centurion, the Gautrain railway line also goes through this city, giving its residents a plethora of travelling options. It takes about 27 minutes drive to access OR Tambo international airport from Centurion.
While high-density property developments in Centurion have steadily attracted younger residents with lower incomes, the community remains one of the most affluent in the country.
Centurion has 109 active suburbs.
