True to all wealthy, established suburbs, Bryanston in Johannesburg is a self-contained area with residents rarely having to venture from the suburb. Bryanston encompasses lavish homes on large treed stands, ultramodern complexes, top private schools, chic shopping malls, health clubs, churches, parks and an exclusive golf course. A newly developed business area has attracted many international and national corporates to this leafy suburb.
Once considered a country retreat with sprawling homes, Bryanston has evolved into a more modern suburb without foregoing its upmarket worth.
The N1 Western Bypass runs along the suburb’s northern border to easily link up with the M1 north-south highway to Johannesburg, Sandton or Pretoria.
Bryanston residents value their quality of life and visitors can expect to find clean streets, manicured gardens, well maintained municipal facilities and secure malls.
