Morningside is an upmarket, leafy suburb of Sandton located in Johannesburg’s sought-after North.
With convenient access to South Africa’s exclusive financial and retail hub - the vibrant Sandton CBD - prime Morningside properties are constantly in demand with young financial wizards, prominent business owners and well-heeled folk seeking a quiet, tranquil respite from the daily grind of big city living.
Spread across both sides of Rivonia Road and sharing a boundary with Rivonia to the North, Morningside is perfectly positioned as far as accessibility to the rest of Johannesburg and Gauteng is concerned.
The Buccleuch Interchange which links the N1, M1 and N3 highways is close to Morningside, supplying swift access to Midrand, Centurion, Pretoria, Johannesburg City Centre and Germiston.
The Sandton Gautrain Station is minutes away on the M9 arterial road and supplies quick and cost effective public transport to OR Tambo international Airport, Park Station in the centre of Johannesburg and, by July 2011, Pretoria via Midrand and Centurion.
Prime Morningside properties offering excellent value and impressive potential returns include rambling post war family homes set in lovely spacious gardens, modern townhouses in secure gated communities, pockets of vacant land ideal for development and stylish apartments in fashionable blocks.
Despite the fact that Morningside properties appeal to top-end consumers, property prices remain reasonably low with modest three-bedroom family homes going for under R3m on a regular basis!
Although Morningside attractions are dominated by the modern shopping precincts of Sandton, residents are able to escape to the 1,9ha Outspan Bird Sanctuary, the Rietfontein Nature Reserve and the Lonehill Nature Reserve, where a hiking trail meanders past the remains of an old Tswana village and early iron foundries which date back to the 1600’s!
The Tuscan-style Montecasino entertainment complex comprising a casino, theatre, themed restaurants, cinemas and an elegant 5-star hotel, together with the Montecasino Bird Gardens, is situated in neighbouring Fourways.
Morningside properties are close to all the modern amenities and facilities of Sandton.
The vast and exclusive Sandton Centre and Mandela Square shopping precincts offer upmarket retail services, first class restaurants, plush big brand hotels and a variety of entertainment associated with top-end living. Closer to home, the Pavilion & Village Walk Shopping Centres offer essential supplies to Morningside residents.
Excellent schools including Crawford and Redhill are located in the area, so too is the Morningside Medi-Clinic.
