Lying in the heart of the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, within easy reach of Hyde Park, Sandton and trendy Rosebank, Craighall is one of a string of leafy suburbs that form an affluent stretch on the western side of the city along the southern side of Jan Smuts Avenue, between Parkhurst and the sprawling malls of Sandton.
Properties here are rambling and gardens established and beautifully cultivated. There is little to remind you of the density of city life - this is one of the older suburbs of a city, built when space was anything but an issue. There are many advantages to staying in this part of Johannesburg. Craighall lies between Beyers Naude Drive and Jan Smuts, two of the major arteries of the northern suburbs that easily transfer you to various attractions. Yet despite this, one is little affected by the hurly-burly these roads represent, and the suburb gives itself over entirely to a sense of tranquillity, in no small way attributable to the lush green cover of a myriad trees. Easy access to the M1 is an added bonus.
Only a few blocks away from Craighall is the upmarket Hyde Park Corner shopping mall, recently voted the ‘most loved’ of Johannesburg’s best known malls, and both the River Club Golf Club and the Sandton Sports Club are within easy reach. No trip to Johannesburg would be complete without a foray in the glitzy shopping malls of Sandton, the hub of fashion, coffee shops and a typical Jo’burg energy that is the signature of this cosmopolitan retail and business locale.
