Orchards is one of the older suburbs in Johannesburg and has many large old houses. Many of these large houses in Orchards have now been divided into apartments.

Orchards is coveniently close to several golf clubs in Sandton. Among others you will find the Houghton Golf Club to the southwest and the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club to east of Orchards. The M1 highway which takes you through the city centre of Johannesburg is just a few blocks away from Orchards.

Melrose Arch, just up the road, is constantly expanding and provides a rather unique mix of work, play and home space with a number of restaurants set on the square, reminiscent of the street culture so evident in Europe. Melrose Arch is a combination of apartments, lofts and penthouses above shops and office space, touted as the height of fashionable living in the city.

Melrose Bird Sanctuary, not far from Orchards, is one of Johannesburg’s many green spaces where over 120 different species of wild birds skim through the indigenous trees and reed beds that surround the pretty lake in the sanctuary.
