Gracious, stately homes hidden behind leafy gardens and set along tree canopy-covered avenues, share space with modern cluster living where the cost of a luxury penthouse could be compared to a relative mansion elsewhere, in the exclusive Johannesburg suburb of Houghton. Here, entertaining is done on a grand scale and no expense is spared in enjoying life’s luxuries.
The Houghton Ridge area has magnificent views of Johannesburg’s northern suburbs stretching all the way to the Magaliesberg Mountains and a section of the suburb was declared a national heritage site.

Houghton is an obvious choice for discerning guests seeking ultimate luxury on a visit to the Gauteng Province capital.
