Situated in trendy Sandton to the North of Johannesburg, Oaklands property is some of the most expensive and upmarket real estate in South Africa’s biggest city.
Surrounded by an elite cluster of neighbours – Highlands North, Abbotsford, Houghton Estate and Norwood - Oaklands is undeniably A-list real estate which is a stone’s throw away from all the business hubs of Johannesburg – Rosebank, Sandton and the CBD.
Beautiful family homes in spacious, well-manicured gardens are the main fare available in the lush, tranquil suburb. Expect to pay quite dearly for the privilege of living in an area which carries a reputation of being one of the most aesthetically pleasing of Johannesburg’s upper echelon!
Oaklands is perfectly positioned to the major highways and byways of Johannesburg. The M1 linking Johannesburg to Sandton, Midrand, Centurion and Pretoria is on the one side of prime Oaklands properties while the R101 is on the other.
Regular bus routes operated by Metrobus provide public transport to the city centre, Rosebank and Sandton.
As an elite Johannesburg suburb, Oaklands is close to the premier shopping malls of Killarney, Melrose, Rosebank, Hyde Park and Norwood and is well serviced by the usual amenities and facilities associated with top-end city living.
Desirable Oaklands properties are located in close proximity to the countless attractions of the city and surrounds.
