A now bustling residential community, Greenstone Hill nestles within the wider East Rand region of Modderfontein, and hums with a combination of old-world heritage and new-age modernism. If you are looking for an area with both a small town charm and the activity of a thriving modern community, look no further than the fir tree-lined streets of Greenstone. 

Greenstone forms part of the Modderfontein area, founded in 1896. The region was part of a burgeoning mining community at the time, and was the main headquarters for a dynamite company that supplied the industry. German craftsman looking to profit from the mining culture settled as the main working demographic. It is their influence that can be seen in the distinctly German brickwork and curlicue eaves of many of the older building designs.
