Nestled north of Witkoppen Road is one of Johannesburg’s newer suburbs, Lonehill. Named after a lone koppie in the area, it has become one of the most popular places to buy and rent property. With its beautiful surroundings and central location near areas such as Sandton, Bryanston and Fourways, Lonehill offers residents the perfect balance between nature’s best and the perks of city dwelling.
Lonehill originated in 1978 as the model for quality community living and since then it has matured into a sought-after suburb offering security, convenient shopping and great schools. The Lonehill Nature Reserve has a rich history as it conserves three stone-age furnaces built in the 1600s that were excavated in the 1960s and were then covered to protect them, making Lonehill an important Stone Age site.
