Bedford Gardens is a well-established and old suburb located on the East Rand. The suburb was established by the famed “rand lords” that were responsible for establishing other suburbs like Parktown and Houghton. Thus the core existence of the suburb was gold.
The suburb is in niche location and is more a central Johannesburg suburb as most of the surrounding suburbs and amenities are accessable from Bedford Gardens. Prime location is an understatement when looking at the accessibility then.
It is an affluent upper-class suburb with a mixed property use which consists of palatial homes, clusters, town-house complexes and apartments. In recent years the suburb undergone some major changes in the form of re-development in the apartment segment with many new buildings being constructed and marketed as the revival of lock-up and go security properties that were highly sought after in the 70’s and 80’s.
The price range of the apartments and town-houses cater for the broad income spectrum from middle to upper-class with a few penthouse suites going for a song. That is if the budget allows this expense.
The suburb is sought after for the growth in property value, location and the exclusivity that has become synonymous with the suburb and surrounding suburbs.
The suburb has a lot to offer in terms of property use from commercial use on the major roads and guest houses that are already in place.
The benefit is that access to either industrial or commercial hubs is not as great a problem as most other suburbs where congested highways are the order of the day.
Schools that service the suburb have stable records and are within walking distance depending on the school. Here is a list of some of the more popular schools in and close to Bedford Gardens;
