Set on a sloping ridge, gracious character-filled homes abound in the eastern Johannesburg suburb of Kensington. Large oak and jacaranda trees line the streets and the area has a number of excellent schools, a popular park and a vibrant café district.
Many of Kensington’s homes are historic, three of which are national heritage sites.
