The suburb of Bryanston and the region has history dating back to the Iron Age and artifacts to what have been found at the Leeukop Prison and Lone Hill as an example.
Suffice to say the region and the suburb have been inhabited by humans for centuries.
In more recent times the founding source of Bryanston can be traced back to gold mining in Johannesburg and as with suburbs like Park Town and Houghton were targeted by mining management as exclusive retreats from the rigors of the proverbial “salt mines”.
The famous architect Sir Herbert Baker’s influence can also be seen in many of the older homes which add to the nostalgia surrounding the suburb.
The region which includes Bryanston is lauded as the richest region in Africa making the suburb ideal as a long term investment prospect.
Like Westcliffe, Bryanston’s streets are lines with Acacia trees in summer weaving a tapestry of purple, green offset against the backdrop of large elegant homes.
For this reason Bryanston is by today’s norms a highly sought after suburb for its exclusivity, the architecture, prime location and steady growth in property values.
Property usage is diverse which comprises freehold homes, apartments, which have become the trend for many home owners opting to subdivide their very large stands and erecting cluster homes and finally townhouses.
The general property values cater for the upper-class income group.
Bryanston itself has undergone some major redevelopment within the commercial property usage in recent years with developments such as The Hub and Nicolway which is home to large commercial companies.
There are a number of reputable schools in and near to the suburb such as St Stithians College, Michael Mount Waldorf School and the British International College.
Roads which highlight the prime location of Bryanston are William Nicol Drive, the N1 Western Bypass and Witkoppen Road.
There are a number of exclusive retail outlets catering for this exclusive market such as Nicolway, Bryanston Shopping Centre and Fourways Crossing.
