Situated halfway between O.R Tambo International Airport and the bustling Johannesburg, Edenvale has become a tranquil suburb for families.

Originally called Rietfontein when the town emerged around the mining activities at the Rietfontein Gold Mine in 1903, Edenvale has grown into a leafy and tranquil suburb situated on the East Rand.

Today Edenvale has the advantage of being a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, while still being very close to all major routes to and from the city. Properties here reflect the tranquility with green lawns and tree-lined streets.

Residents here are spoiled for choice in terms of entertainment as most major attractions in the area are only a few minutes away. Some of these attractions includes Gillooly’s Farm, Eastgate Mall and the beautiful and undulating Linksfield Golf Course.
