The old and well-established suburb of Fairwood is situated in the heart of the old Johannesburg northern suburbs. Surrounded by suburbs like Mountain View, Fellside, Orange Grove brings a picture of old-world charm and family to mind.
A mixture of period homes interspersed with more contemporary architecture tells the story of progress locked up in the story of these homes.
The region in which Fairwood finds itself was recognised as an extension of Houghton or Linksfield so-to-speak and thus it had a degree of status.
By today’s property standards Fairwood is a middle-class suburb with a primary residential use. This translates to tranquillity. The stable property values are ascribed to the fair amount of sales in the suburb and the rental market is ideal for property investors in the middle to upper-class income groups as demand for rental income is generally high.
Reminiscent of the time were bay windows and large semi-wraparound porticoes, pressed ceilings and wood flooring which will appeal to the avid renovators.
The prime location of Fairwood will sway many to invest in this quant suburb that offers views over Johannesburg from some of the homes on vantage points.
Access to the major commercial hubs will always attract buyers to Fairwood as access is via roads like Louis Botha Avenue through to Grayston Drive connecting to Rivonia, Rosebank and Sandton with little fuss.
For those in the industrial and manufacturing sectors access to industrial hubs like Wynberg, Kew, Sebenza and Isando are reached via George Avenue right through to the hubs.
Some parts of Fairwood is boomed which is ideal for the security conscious home owner.
This lovely old suburb has access to some of the best schools min the North of Johannesburg such as Sacred Heart College, Athlone Girls’ High School, Linksfield Primary School and Norwood Primary School.
All the right malls cater for retail and entertainment needs in malls like Melrose Arch, Norwood Mall, Killarney Mall and The Zone @ Rosebank to mention but a few.
