Cosmopolitan, vibrant and trendy, Norwood and Orchards property is a blend of beautiful old homes dating back to the 1920s, modern lock up and go townhouses and reasonably priced sectional title apartments.
Characterised by tranquil, tree lined streets, award winning restaurants and a safe secure neighbourhood aided by an active and committed community policing programme; Norwood and Orchards Real Estate is particularly attractive to families, entry level buyers and those seeking a secure inner-city locality.
Nestling between one of the most wealthy and elite of Johannesburg’s suburbs, Houghton Estate, and Orange Grove, Norwood and Orchards have managed to retain a quiet village ambience.
Regardless of their proximity to the inner city, they have not been affected by the urban decay that has blighted neighbouring areas. Centrally situated to the north of the Johannesburg CBD, Norwood and Orchards properties are constantly in demand due to their proximity to Rosebank, Sandton and the city centre.
The R101 road route which passes close to the residential areas provides a vital link to all the major arterial roads of Johannesburg - the M1 connecting the Johannesburg CBD with Sandton, the M2 to Germiston and the N3 to Midrand, Centurion and Pretoria.
Municipal buses ply regular routes between the CBD and Norwood offering cost effective public transport alternatives.
