My house is small, light and airy and is situated next to a large open park where you can go for long walks in the famous SA sunshine. The suburb is an up and coming area that includes a green belt just a block away. Just fifteen minute's drive away is trendy Melville, a suburb full of cafes, nightclubs and restaurants. Also, a huge shopping mall is ten minutes away, and there are dams, hills, city centre, everything you could wish for very close by. My house has an open-plan dining-lounge, good sized kitchen with all mod cons, and a small garden. The house is very secure, with a garage for the car. Although it is a small house, it feels spacious, and with 3 bedrooms it can comfortably fit 5 people. It would be perfect for a family, but would equally suit a couple or even a single who wants a quiet base, but with all amenities a short drive away. Also, there is a small shopping centre with supermarket and fast food restaurants just 5 minute's walk away.
The neighbourhood is up-and-coming, meaning there are lots of people, young and old, who have bought houses in the area and are renovating them, with the result that the neighbourhood is a vibrant mix of different types of people. It is a built-up area, but there are large, open spaces all around and among the houses. There is a very big park on the next block which is great for long strolls, sundowners, picnics and for the kids to run around. With a supermarket 5 minutes walk away, and everything else you could wish for a short drive away, it is perfect for a quiet getaway that still has easy access to everything that Jo'burg has to offer.
