Parkhurst, Johannesburg

The lovely village of Parkhurst, once a rather dull lower-middle class neighbourhood with little more than its inviting trees and beautiful homes to attract visitors, has now reinvented itself and Fourth Avenue in particular has transformed itself into a vibey, trendy hub of activity where coffee shops, antique stores, décor boutiques and restaurants spill out onto the side walk, leaving little pavement on which to circumnavigate the crowds that make this their evening and lunch time haunt.

Now people seek to stay in Parkhurst because it is a lifestyle move. Neighbours know and greet one another, local shops and restaurants provide for much of ones’ needs and the price of homes has made Parkhurst a much sought after area in which to live in Johannesburg. Closely linked to Rosebank and Jan Smuts Avenue, and an easy distance from green spaces like Emmarentia Dam and the Botanical Gardens, Parkhurst is an ideal location.

Placed in the heart of the northern suburbs the way it is, one is able to get around the city and the northern suburbs relatively quickly, or at least your access is good, dependent on traffic.

Rosebank’s malls, the popular Rooftop market and the African craft market are all close by, and Emmarentia Dam with its wide spaces and beautiful trees is a popular weekend and dog-walking venue for Jo’burgers. You’re also within easy reach of other popular villages in Johannesburg, like Greenside and Melville.
