Gauteng DestinationsDuxberry, Sandton
The peaceful, leafy suburb of Duxberry borders on Morningside - residents often use the suburb names interchangeably - in the heart of the northern suburbs of Johannesburg that lie to the north west of the city, a string of upmarket areas with large properties and gardens lovingly nurtured.
Duxberry is one of a number of boomed suburbs, typical of Johannesburg, and the secure neighbourhood enjoys 24 hour motorised patrol and has found favour with those who work in the buzzing business district of Sandton.
The suburb allows easy access to the major roads of Rivonia and Beyers Naude Drive, both key tributaries of the city that, despite the constant hustle and bustle and notoriously discourteous Gauteng-style driving, is one of the advantages to staying in Duxberry because of the ease with which you can get around. In spite of this, the suburb remains relatively unaffected by the distant clamour and is fairly unfamiliar to residents and visitors alike. This trouble-free anonymity is part of what makes staying here such a pleasure.
The Morningside Shopping Centre is close by and allows one to quickly stock up sans the madding crowds so typical of Sandton City, which is only slightly further-a-field – although a visit to Sandton City is virtually mandatory so as to experience this vast hub of fashionistas, coffee shop dilettantes and the heart of Johannesburg’s retail and business.
