Bedfordview, with its leafy environment and village atmosphere, is one of Johannesburg’s oldest and most sought-after residential suburbs, attracting a broad cross-section of South Africans. Here older architecture fits seamlessly with the new and modern, and people from all walks of life rub shoulders.
The suburb is surrounded by ancient hills that protect it from the elements allowing trees to grow taller and gardens and lawns to grow lusher. The area is, therefore, an attractive one with a wonderful small-town atmosphere, yet it is also situated near the very heart of Johannesburg’s road and transport infrastructure. It also offers a wide variety of residential property options to suit diverse needs and budgets.
Bedfordview’s established reputation as an upmarket and aspirant suburb along with its diverse property landscape catering to a broad spectrum of buyers from first-time buyers continues to buoy the market.
Greater Bedfordview is made up of a number of additional suburbs including Essexwold, St Andrews, Morning Hill, Bedford Gardens, Bedford Park, and others. It is situated very close to the N3 and N12 freeways and the giant Gillooly’s interchange, giving commuters easy access to the greater city of Johannesburg. The suburb is also a mere 10 minutes from the airport making it an ideal base for business people who travel regularly.
There are fine shopping facilities and numerous young parents are attracted to the area by the many outstanding schools that are close by. Bedfordview is also home to a number office blocks and places of worship, allowing residents to live, work and play right here in the suburb.
Bedfordview is an area where generations of families have been known to settle, from older, more established individuals to young families starting out. Many people who have lived in the area come to love it and either never leave or return later in their lives. Bedfordview is able to offer residents a total lifestyle experience and I believe that the property market here has a great future.
