Blairgowrie - set between Sandton, Rosebank and Randburg - is an established suburb with leafy streets and quaint older homes, a picture perfect example of a family friendly suburb. Boasting with green spaces, larger properties and top notch schools the area has been a go-to choice for those looking for a place to start a family without compromising on location.
Blairgowrie probably has the best location of any suburb in the greater Johannesburg area. It is easy to get to Sandton - while still being out of the hustle and bustle of the Sandton CBD. It is also close to all of the major arteries that get you from A to B in the major metropolis - Jan Smuts Avenue, William Nicol Drive, and Republic Road, and if you're into shopping then Sandton City, Hyde Park Corner and Melrose Arch are all within a stone's throw.
There are good schools; access to a variety of shopping facilities; an active Blairgowrie Community Association that regularly attends to trail maintenance and improvement of the playgrounds and security within the greenbelt; and Delta Park is a beautiful lifestyle feature offering a host of outdoor activities, including tennis, birding, walking, running and cycling. The various community tennis courts and parks dotted throughout the suburb, as well as the municipal swimming pool, are well-loved attractions.
It is due to this sense of community, wealth of property options and its ideal location that has ensured residents stay rooted for well over 10 years before moving to retirement homes or downsizing.
