A garden suburb of Johannesburg
A garden suburb of Johannesburg, Norwood is both diverse and appealing. Its pretty streets are lined with trees and Norwood is easily one of the more popular dining spots in the city, renowned for its celebrated restaurants and ethnic mix of cuisine.
Bordering the Johannesburg suburbs of Orchards, Oaklands and Houghton, Norwood is a neighbourhood where old meets new; where many homes were built in the 1920s and 1930s and there also are a number of beautiful contemporary buildings in the area. Although the majority of properties are freehold homes, there are also several cluster and sectional title developments.
The suburb has a “distinctive cosmopolitan atmosphere”, and the residents comprise a mix of cultures.
The high number of residents who can be seen either running or walking in the neighbourhood is a testament to the area’s safety. Norwood also has an active community policing programme, which may account for the distinctly secure feeling of the quaint suburb.
Norwood is also close to Sandton and Melrose Arch and has easy access to main roads and highways, the OR Tambo International Airport, the Gautrain stations in Rosebank and Sandton, some of Johannesburg’s best private schools, hospitals, shopping centres and places of worship
Some of the quirkiest highlights can be found along Norwood’s Grant Avenue main drag.
