Linden is one of the gracious old suburbs of upmarket Randburg and is centrally located on the slopes of Northcliff about 8 km north of the Johannesburg CBD.
Comprising beautifully renovated family homes set in spacious grounds, immaculate newly built mansions with all the modern amenities, affordable sectional title units, cottages in retirement villages and the odd pocket of vacant land; Linden property is constantly in demand with families, first time buyers and retirees.
The large sleepy suburb is close to all the major business centres of the Greater Johannesburg area and is accessible from both the N1 and M1 highways via Beyers Naude Drive and Jan Smuts Avenue.
Vital public transport links provided by the Sandton Gautrain station and regular metro bus routes connect Linden with Rosebank, the city centre, OR Tambo international Airport and Pretoria via Midrand and Centurion.
Prime Linden properties are all located within close proximity of a number of parks, bird sanctuaries and other popular eco escapes, creating a sought-after destination with a pleasant parkland atmosphere.
Emmarentia Dam, one of the most fashionable leisure areas in Johannesburg, lies a little to the south of the suburb. Nature trails, secluded picnic spots, woodland areas ideal for inquisitive dogs and children, as well as a variety of waterborne activities provide all the necessary outdoor pursuits for jaded city dwellers.
The spectacular Johannesburg Botanical Gardens are laid out on the western shoreline of the dam and it is here, each summer evening, that a variety of outdoor concerts are held.
The fashionable antique and collectible stores on the trendy high streets of neighbouring Greenside are the perfect destinations for leisurely window shoppers.
The original homestead of the farm which was subdivided over 100 years ago, Linden Farmhouse, was retained as a significant slice of history. Restored to its former glory, the beautiful old home is now a 4-star guest house!
As an established Johannesburg suburb, Linden properties are efficiently serviced by suburban schools, health care providers and a variety of shopping centres.
The Randburg Day Clinic, the Greenside Clinic and the Greenlinks Municipal clinic provide essential health care, whereas Linden High School, Holy Cross Primary School and the Louw Geldenhuys Laerskool offer public and private education.
The Cresta Shopping Centre, Northbank Corner and The Terrace Shopping Centre are the closest retail outlets whilst the Linden Police Station supports the community with emergency services.
