Saxonwold, Sandton

saxonwold sandtonSaxonwold is a suburb of Sandton situated in Johannesburg, South Africa. One of Johannesburg's older suburbs, Saxonwold is characterised by large two-story houses similar to those found in the near by suburbs of Parkwood and Houghton Estate. Many properties in Saxonwold, especially in the northeastern parts have been converted to professional offices for attorneys, doctors and and other specialists.

Saxonwold is a sedate dignified neighbourhood, round the corner from the Johannesburg zoo. Saxonwold is convenient to say the least. You have easy access from the suburb to the M1 and to Jan Smuts Avenue, one of the major arteries from the city through the northern suburbs. The CBD of Johannesburg is minutes’ drive from Saxonwold, particularly Braamfontein and the cultural arc, which includes the Constitutional Court, the Civic theatre, the famous Mandela Bridge that takes one into Newtown and the Market theatre and Museum Africa, make a stay in Saxonwold worthwhile.

Several primary schools are situated within Saxonwold and is next door to the Johannesburg Zoological Gardens which also houses the National Military History Museum. The Killarney Golf Club and Houghton Golf Club are situated close by towards the east of Saxonwold. The Wanderers Cricket Ground and Golf Club is also just a short drive away.

You’re close to the shopping centres of Rosebank, Hyde Park and Killarney, and the trendy villages of Parkhurst, Greenside and Melville are within easy reach. With their distinctive pavement culture, popular restaurants and cafés and celebrated nightlife, they’re an obvious choice for evening and lunch time entertainment. There is a pretty mix of antique shops and boutiques along the high streets too.
