Gresswold is an old and well-established suburb located North-east of the Johannesburg CBD.
Old houses mixed with modern and tree-lined streets makes Gresswold the ideal place for first time buyers. All the important amenities are no more than 4, 5 kilometers away, from entertainment, commercial hubs and other middle class suburbs like Sunningdale, Lyndhurst and Bramley.
The letting market in the suburb is in high demand and this is due to the proximity to the commercial hubs of Rosebank, Sandton and Norwood being so close. For those working in the Johannesburg CBD it is just as convenient to access, no freeway traffic for the suburb.
The mixed property use of the suburb is ideal for the letting and buying market with freehold homes and sectional title apartment buildings which date back to when apartments where fashionable.
