Looking to buy property in Sandton?
How should you go about looking for, finding and buying a property in the extensive, affluent Sandton area? If you’re thinking of purchasing a home here, you’re no doubt aware that you’ll be buying into the high-end market sector, where as elsewhere, you get that for which you pay.
This means that downright “cheapies” are not likely to appear on the list of what’s on offer in the “richest square mile in Africa”, as for which Sandton has become known, following an early marketing campaign by a major contributor to the development of this renowned precinct.

- The Lion and Safari Park is situated to the north-west of this sought-after suburb. Here, visitors drive through the park in their own vehicles, viewing game in various large, fenced camps. The highlight is viewing the park’s lions, as its name indicates.
- The Cradle of Humankind is just a short distance from the Lion and Safari Park, and is a “must see” for everyone. It’s the location of astonishing archaeological discoveries, some very recent, and a UNESCO listed archaeological site and area.
- The Montecasino entertainment complex, near Fourways Mall, offers two theatres, a plush casino and umpteen speciality shops, restaurants and coffee bars.
- Immediately adjacent to the Montecasino, is the outstanding open-air Bird Gardens, where visitors can view a huge variety of bird species, small indigenous wild animals and reptiles. At certain times of the day, the curators of the Bird Gardens put on fascinating displays of trained birds, while providing interesting information about the feathered participant species.
As we say at Fine & Country South Africa: “People buy as much into the lifestyle of a property and its location, as they do the bricks and mortar”, so make us your preferred agents when you’re looking for a home in Sandton.
