The Lonehill Lifestyle
Living in the ‘village’ of Lonehill is not only about owning a home, but is a lifestyle that embraces safety and security for the residents in the area with owners and residents actively involved in keeping the suburb safe and clean.
The suburb has an excellent infrastructure with a mix of homes to suit just about every budget. For family buyers a secure neighbourhood is top priority and Lonehill offers a secure infrastructure.
People in Lonehill feel very safe as runners and joggers can be seen on the roads while mothers happily walk their babies in trendy prams and animal lovers walk their dogs any time they choose, thanks to the street patrollers and the work of the very active Lonehill Residents Association.
The suburb is also a popular choice with young professionals and older buyers, who are looking to downscale to a ‘ lock up and go’ cluster or townhouse. It is especially family friendly, and one of the few suburbs where you will see joggers and mums taking their toddlers and babies for walks, or elderly couples strolling with their dogs during the mornings and evenings.
The Resident’s Association organizes regular community activities such as Jazz events, picnics, art exhibitions and carols by candlelight, all of which are actively supported by residents. The Lonehill Koppie Nature Reserve is a regular weekend picnic spot for residents.
The suburb has excellent shopping facilities with both the Lonehill Shopping Centre and Pineslopes Shopping Centre being easily accessible within the area. There is a large variety of good restaurant’s for residents to choose from, from casual Bistro’s to Fine Dining eateries.
On the doorstep of Lonehill is the entertainment centre – Montecasino, which offers a variety of theatre’s, movie houses and a vast array of activities for all members of the family.
The suburb also has its own fire station that is equally popular for children’s parties.
There are three excellent private schools in Lonehill – the Lonehill Crawford Pre-Primary, Lonehill Crawford Primary and and the Lonehill Crawford College – all part of the Crawford Collection of schools which constitute the largest single private school organisation in South Africa.
Fitness – Virgin Active
There is a Virgin Active Fitness Club situated in the Lonehill Shopping Centre.
The Lonehill Envirofund
The Envirofund was introduced in 2007 to enable the Lonehill Residents Association’s Estate Team to not only maintain, but also improve our environment.
The Lonehill Residents Association’s receives no funding from City Council and has to rely on donations from local residents to enable them to cut over 440 000m² of grass, trim trees, maintain the parks, the Koppie and dams, fill potholes, pick up constant litter, and repair water leaks.
By contributing a minimal monthly contribution to the Envirofund, residents assist the Association with the maintenance of the suburb.
Emergency Medical Service in Lonehill
With the increase in population in the areas north of Sandton there has been a marked increase in calls for Emergency Medical Services in the area as well as a significant increase in the response times of these services.
Rapid emergency response does not only save lives but can also reduce the risk of permanent damage and improve chances of speedier recovery.
The Lonehill Improvement Initiative supported by Fidelity Security Services, now offer residents of Lonehill, Beverley and Pineslopes an Advanced Life Support Service. This service is operated by SLA, a team of highly qualified and experienced Advance Life Support Paramedics, using fully equipped vehicles operating from their Base in Lonehill.
