peaceful retreat

Hillcrest is situated on a hill above Durban and used to be a small village near the Valley of a Thousand Hills.
Surrounded by green pastures and farmland, it offered a peaceful retreat away from the city’s hustle and bustle. However, the property boom changed everything, and Hillcrest transformed into a booming suburb of Durban, attracting people seeking a safer, less crowded lifestyle.

TheĀ Appeal

Despite the changes, Hillcrest has managed to retain its country village ambiance, with little heavy industry present in the area. Main Road, which used to be a residential area, has been rezoned for office and commercial use, and vacant land has been used to build retirement villages, gated security communities, equestrian estates, and golf estates.

Hillcrest offers a variety of activities, from the Shongweni Farmers market, farm stalls, and nurseries to country pubs and artists’ havens. The proximity of Durban, only a 20-minute drive away, also adds to the appeal of living in Hillcrest for professionals and families alike!
