Brakpan Property

Situated between Benoni and Springs, Brakpan is an industrial centre in the Witwatersrand mining area of the Gauteng province. It’s home to over 305,000 people.

Brakpan properties cover a range of attractive residential options, from family homes with gardens to city-style apartments.

Brakpan’s history as a mining town dates back to the late 1800s, when the British established a coal mine known as the Brakpan Collieries and an associated coal power station. Then gold was discovered in the Witwatersrand, and in 1905, Brakpan opened its first gold mines and a steady stream of new residents followed. It was considered a suburb of Benoni until 1912, when it was declared a town.
