Johannesburg, Greater Johannesburg, Gauteng
Our upmarket, spacious, secure bright and beautifully furnished garden cottage, set on a 6800 square meter property, in the upmarket area of Houghton (1.5km from Rosebank) has a the feel of being on a wine farm yet is central to everything .The main house was built by Sir Herbert Baker in 1905. He was also the architect of the Union Buildings in Pretoria and many Johannesburg heritage homes. As you drive onto the property you will have the sense of being on an estate, whilst still being in the heart of Johannesburg, surrounded by beautiful giant 100 year old trees.

The 80 square meter (800 square feet) cottage is stand alone and has a beautiful garden of its own. The open plan dinning and living area is spacious with big windows overlooking the garden, it had a comfy couch with flat screen Tv as well as free fast Wifi.

About the neighbourhood
Houghton/Riviera is a beautiful upmarket area in the North of Johannesburg. 2 houses down lives the former South African president, President Mbeki. The suburb is a beautiful one to walk through with 100 year old tree lined avenues. The Johannesburg Zoo, a short walk away.

We are exceptionally well located, a block from the Gautrain bus, just over 1 km (2 US$ by Uber) to the Rosebank shopping district with trendy restaurants and upmarket malls and a Gautrain station. Trendy Melrose Arch is 4km away, Sandton shopping district and business hub 8km away. Maboneng district (inner city rejuvenation and Art district) 5km.

3 min to the M1 highway.

1 km from Joburg Zoo and Military museum and 2km to Zoo lake and Moyo restaurant.
