Norwood is a well-established and highly sought after suburb located north of the Johannesburg CBD.
When driving in the business district on Osborn Road, you’ll find the streets adorned with shop fronts of an eclectic mixture of pavement restaurants, spa’s and deli’s.
Moving into the residential part of the suburb it is soon obvious that the suburb is exclusive. Streets lined with old trees and somewhat imposing perimeter security walls set the mood. The stately homes are highly sought after for their value, finishings and architecture which is mixed with old world charm and modern styles.
Older “bargain” homes are highly sought after by renovators’ intent on making good returns on their labours of love and are rewarded by stable market values.
Some of the architecture reflects the famous architect Sir Herbert Baker’s influence on the surrounding suburbs which has been copied.
The popular schools in the suburb like Norwood Primary School, The Torah Academy Primary and High School, Sacred Heart College and Athlone Girls High School have reputations for high achievements.
The prime location of the suburb is highlighted by the many roads like Osborn Road, Ivy Road, Grant Road and Louis Botha Avenue that connect to other suburbs and amenities with ease.
Norwood is a self sustaining suburb with a number of exclusive malls to choose from like the Norwood Mall, the eclectic boutiques on Grant and Osborn Road, Melrose Arch and the convenient proximity of the M1 highway north and south. Travel to suburbs like Rosebank and Sandton are simple along 11th Avenue and into Oxford road.
The suburb is in an ideal location for students attending Wits with its various campuses scattered across the Johannesburg Central region.
Norwood has a unique and fun range of nigh life and entertainment as safe as can be with community policing a major benefit.
