The original farm on which the township of Berario stands today, was bought by Ario Canova in 1942. Berario was named after Ario and his partner, Ber Sarnie. In the early forties Ario Canova bought a farm north of Aasvoel Kop, (Northcliff Hill), which is now Berario, for the sum of 51 000 pounds. The original Farmhouse still stands in the now Brooklands Estate, and was sold in 2010 for R7,5million.
The farm was divided into about 535 stands of various sizes and the township of Berario proclaimed. The stands began to sell in 1947 for an average price of 900 pounds, and by 1953 they were all sold. The suburb was built up by 1965.
