One of the larger cities in Gauteng, Randburg encompasses approximately 32 suburbs, including Northcliff, proving a diverse selection of property for sale. While it is now classified as part of growing Johannesburg, it began as a city in its own right. The area boasts a superior infrastructure and similar facilities and amenities to those found in thriving urban locations.
Properties in Randburg are typically characterised by the area in which they are located, with residential real estate in Northcliff attracting affluent homebuyers.
Areas of Randburg, specifically Northcliff, date back to the middle of the 19th century, when the area was inhabited by the Boers.Originally, Randburg comprised four farms - Klipfontein, Driefontein, Olievenhoutspoort and Boskop – which were later subdivided by the sons of their owners.
Randburg, as it’s known today, was established during the Great Trek. For many years, Randburg succeeded in retaining its autonomy from Johannesburg. However, in recent municipal elections, the town lost its independence and was incorporated into the greater Johannesburg area.
