When suburbs like Hyde Park, Park Town, Houghton and Morningside were established the need for further exclusive suburbs grew in the region and suburbs like Duxbury were established to cater for the ever growing demand.
The crucial source of sustainability to the region was from its inception focused on the commercial aspects of commerce to South Africa and this factor does still in small part contribute to the higher property values in suburbs like Duxbury.
It is therefore a fact that Duxbury is by association an exclusive suburb with a mixed property usage which comprises cluster homes and freehold homes. This makes it the ideal haven for the well-heeled executives working in the nearby commercial hubs of Melrose, Rosebank, Rivonia and the Sandton CBD. Suffice to say there is no need to get stuck on major freeways to reach the office.
Falling within the Sandton municipality means service delivery is at a high standard adding to property values and also contributes to a certain standard of aesthetic which residents are proud to display by way of well-maintained homes, tree lined streets and pavements.
The suburb is also a family and child friendly suburb which is a testimony to a sense of community. Architectural aesthetics in the suburb ranges from the higher end of conventional to modern adding further aesthetic appeal to the suburb. Roads like Ballyclare Drive, Summit Road, Kelvin Drive and then access to M1 highlight the central prime location of the suburb which then does also link up with the N1 Western Bypass connecting to towns like Midrand, Centurion and Pretoria.
Duxbury is in a privileged position to have access to reputable schools such as Redhill College, Sandown High School, Crawford College Sandton and Varsity College Sandton.
The suburb would not be complete with access to exclusive malls and here is a short list of some of these malls close to Duxbury, Morningside Shopping Centre, Morning Glen Mall and Bryanston Shopping Centre.
