Fourways at a glance

Considered one of the fastest growing areas in Johannesburg, Fourways has become one of the most sought-after areas for both residential and commercial property investors.

The development of Steyn City and the subsequent road upgrades that followed has spurred interest in many of the upmarket estates situated along William Nicol Drive from Uranium Street through to the Erling road. Other upgrades in the area have seen buyer confidence increase and this bodes well for the future property market.

Fourways has always been a popular residential area offering an attractive, secure lifestyle as well as a range of appealing popular property options. The fact that Fourways has grown into an important development hub in its own right in recent years has had an extremely positive impact on the residential property market in the greater Fourways area. It means that residents now have everything they need within easy reach and no longer have to travel long distances to other areas of Johannesburg to work, shop and to drop their children at school each day.

Secure complexes and apartments in areas such as Lonehill, Paulshof, and Douglasdale are all highly sought after areas and offer buyers a number of different possible options. Dainfern, Fourways Gardens, Cedar Lakes, Waterford Estate and Stratford Gardens are some of the upmarket estates in Johannesburg and demand for properties in these areas often outstrips supply.

Monte Casino is the focal point for entertainment in the neighbourhood and it has been voted Gauteng's best entertainment destination and boasts a casino, cinemas, theatres and good quality restaurants and bars.
