Sandhurst at a glance

Sandhurst is the quintessence of the phrase “where the other half lives” and it is for very good reason that this northern Johannesburg suburb is regarded as the most exclusive and prestigious in Gauteng.

Sandhurst one of the top five wealthiest suburbs in South Africa, it is also home to some of the most expensive real estate in the country.

Sandhurst’s main draw cards is that it offers its residents not only the privacy they seek, but also a very elevated level of security. Another is the low-density of the area. Sandhurst emerged as a suburb of the bustling city over 50 years ago, and homes in Sandhurst veer towards the stately rather than the nouveau riche.

There are also few cluster developments and the huge grounds on which homes are set means that the suburb of Sandhurst remains quiet, leafy and sedate, its tree-lined streets devoid of traffic except during peak hour, despite its proximity to Sandton’s Central Business District.

Most of the properties have their own state-of-the-art security systems on top of being set back on stands behind walls at least two metres tall, and the streets are generally heavily patrolled. These precautions ensure that the suburb remains quiet and peaceful.

Whilst the property landscape in Sandhurst hasn’t changed much in recent years, one aspect that has changed significantly is the investor demographic.

The suburb is now very representative of the current top South African wealth profile with more and more of our political heavyweights, business entrepreneurs and captains of industry choosing to live in Sandhurst.

The suburb lies on the north western slope of the city providing quite beautiful views toward the Magaliesberg and is literally minutes from all that hums in this part of Johannesburg - Sandton City, Hyde Park shopping, the Inanda Club, Wanderers Cricket Club, and leading private schools in the area.
