Neighbourhood of the week – Douglasdale

Our #neighbourhoodoftheweek is dedicated to the well-established and beautiful suburb of #Douglasdale


Built upon the Douglasdale farm that started in 1905 by Thomas Douglas and his wife Janet Alexander who both immigrated to South Africa from Scotland in 1890 – Johannesburg life has transformed the #farmlife into a residential suburb in Sandton – Gauteng.  Centrally located between Fourways and Bryanston, there is never a shortage of convenience to enjoy Food, Entertainment, Sport, Family life and beautiful nature reserves in and around the area, with the likes of Monte Casino as a neighbour giving added value.


Property rental and sale prices in the area are fairly reasonable considering that Douglasdale is a bustling and sought after area. Enjoy a taste of relaxation at the local pub known as The Hogshead offering craft beers on tap, a burger or grill menu and an amazing big screen for sports.  Conveniently located Douglasdale Village shopping centre is perfect for the ladies with a Sorbet, Prestige clothing, Woolies, Clicks and so much more.


It is definitely worth your while to take some time out and enjoy the place where creative minds meet at the Throbbing Strawberry.  It’s quite obvious that Douglasdale gives you the upmarket yet keeping it real feel. Being Joburg’s trendy hotspot for well-priced homes, as stated by property 24, this is an area you may want to consider for your next move.
