Northcliff located in sunny South Africa’s northern suburbs in Johannesburg is an affluent suburb which can be seen in the architecture and size of the average home. This suburb forms part of the greater Randburg area.
The Northcliff Hill is setting the milieu for this leafy suburb that is well established and sought after by people looking for a suburban living. The demand is based on various factors like proximity to schools and malls, as well as major routes and attractions and the most important factor being the property value and stable growth in the northern suburbs of greater Johannesburg. The exclusivity and demand has increased with the advent of boomed streets which add to security of properties in the boomed off areas.
South Africa is not as old as Europe in terms of developed settlements, but when tracing human history South Africa’s age can be traced by the Khoi- and San people that took up residency in places like the Northcliff Hills which pegs us at between 250 and 500 000 years old. Johannesburg is 131 years old as at 2017.
Ward councilors for Northcliff have brought an application to have the Hill declared a national monument which has been declined. This has some residents up in arms as they fear indiscriminate developers will have no regard for a rich cultural history, dating back many years.
Northcliff will continue to expand as long as there are developers willing to spend money and willing and able property owners wanting to invest in Johannesburg’s northern suburbs.
