Popular Luxury Homes in Morningside | Fine and Country SA

The top 10 reasons why luxury homes in Morningside are in high demand.

Located literally just down the road from the bustling Sandton – the financial heart of Johannesburg and South Africa – luxury homes in Morningside are popular among both young families and established businesspeople. It bucks the recent trend of slower selling properties across the country. But why? What is it that makes luxury homes in Morningside so desirable among residential buyers? Here are the top reasons why people are flocking to this popular suburb:


1. Central urban dynamics meets relaxed suburban living

Morningside offers a distinctive quality of living, as it combines the convenience of urban amenities within close proximity with the laid-back feel of a peaceful suburb. Just minutes away from one of the most thriving business districts in Africa, luxury homes are nestled in green, leafy streets, with lots of open space.


2. Africa’s most popular business hub

As mentioned, Sandton is just down the road. Sandton is the premier business centre of Johannesburg, home to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and the new financial district of South Africa. Its close proximity makes Morningside the ideal location for businesspeople looking for luxury homes in the vicinity.


3. Easy access

Not only is this suburb brilliantly located right in the centre of Gauteng, but it is also well serviced by highways, access roads, and public transport. You can easily reach the O.R. Tambo International Airport via the Gautrain, or simply get onto the N1, M1, or N3 highways to take you to the airport, Johannesburg, Pretoria, or anywhere in between.


4. Skip the traffic

With its close proximity to the Sandton Business District and all types of services and amenities, residents have the benefit of living, working, and playing all in close proximity. This means less time stuck in the car negotiating bumper to bumper traffic.

Everything is on your doorstep. The greater area features a number of world-class shopping centres – a very convenient feature for residents. Sandton City, along with Nelson Mandela Square, is one of the largest shopping centres in the southern hemisphere. Want something more niche?
