Henley-On-Klip was established in 1904 and was more small holdings than a residential suburb.
Today the suburb has expanded and is still primarily a small holding type of suburb with some of the properties having been subdivided.
Henley-On-Klip is an ideal location for people seeking the more sedate pace of living that comes from the tranquil setting of the Klip River.
Architecture is conventional and modern with large grounds and equally large well established gardens with old trees.
Property values are comparable to other suburbs in the region with a mixture of affordable and expensive homes.
Henley-On-Klip is essentially part of Meyerton which is a well established town in the Vaal Triangle region.
The benefit of living in this picturesque suburb is the fact that both the Vaal Dam and Vaal River is a tourist attraction and is only a few minutes drive from the suburb.
Henley-On-Klip is the home of the school which Oprah Winfrey established in South Africa, The Oprah Winfrey Learning Academy for Girls which caters for disadvantaged girls in the community.
There are other schools also in and in close proximity to the suburb, including Assembly Of God College, Henley High School and Henley Preparatory School.
The town center (if it can be called that) has a country feel with curio shops and art and craft shops, typical of smaller villages.
There are a number of tourist attractions in and close to Henley-On-Klip which are Suikersbosrand Nature Reserve, Marievale Nature Reserve, Suikerbosrand Hiking Trail and Bass Lake which offers 4x4 trails.
There are still a few undeveloped stands available in the suburb at very reasonable prices which could be a huge cost saving and the design of the home could be your own.
