First look inside Midrand’s newest luxury development, Umthunzi Valley

Gate House Dusk Rev 3 foce

You may have driven past Umthunzi Valley on Walton Road in Midrand, or received a flyer at a nearby traffic intersection, but you have not had the time to stop in for a look around.

No matter; we’ve got you covered.

Umthunzi Valley, developed by family-owned Foce Property Investments, is one of many new developments introduced to the Midrand residential market. With so much new residential activity and choice available to prospective buyers, how do you decide which property is right for you and your family.

This is what makes Umthunzi Valley so special: The three unit types available reflect many peoples’ homeownership journeys. The top-floor, Manhattan-style apartments are perfectly priced for first-timers, while the first-floor units boast two bedrooms and two bathrooms, more floor space and a large covered balcony. The downstairs garden units are something special: three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large covered patio which is shared between the main bedroom and lounge.

All apartments come standard with an Italian design oven with 5-burner gas hobb, are fibre internet ready, fully tiled throughout and feature small, unexpected surprises. Pull-out make-up drawers in the bathroom vanities, concealed, pull-out spice racks next to the oven, and under-cupboard lighting in the kitchens show the thought that has gone into creating an everyday living apartment, as opposed to one where fittings and fixtures have just been added to the unit with zero thought around their practicality, use and purpose.
