Is Riverclub Country Estate for you?
When you are looking at residential properties in and adjacent to Johannesburg’s prestigious suburb of Sandton, we suggest that you keep Riverclub Country Estate at or near the top of your short list of considerations.
First of all, Riverclub Country Estate is a lovely, well-established residential area with sizeable properties and beautiful gardens. It is as peaceful as it is tranquil, and as green and leafy as most of the city’s other highly sought-after suburbs to which people aspire to live in.
Because Riverclub Country Estate is almost exclusively residential, there is only a minimal number of small business-type establishments within the suburb’s borders, another factor that cuts down on traffic and noise pollution, and simultaneously contributes to its laid-back atmosphere.
This ensures that the community retains its unruffled serenity that is further enhanced by the presence of a golf course, which adds to the relaxed atmosphere of this lush green area, rich in bird life and birdsong. In fact, the emblem of the golf club features the southern red bishop, a delicate, beautiful, but shy bird, which can be seen visiting the area.
Renowned Riverclub golfing
Consistently rated as one of South Africa’s Top Ten golf clubs, the 6 500-metre long, 18-hole Riverclub course was established in 1967 and upgraded 31 years later. In keeping with its reputation as one of Johannesburg’s most prestigious golf facilities, the course is bordered by exquisite homes and verdant woodlands, both so characteristic of the suburb.
As is to be expected, the club itself and all its amenities are of superior standards. Because of the area and this establishment’s exclusivity, you are highly unlikely to encounter many players on the course at any given time.
You are free to pursue your game at your own pace, hardly ever waiting for someone ahead of you to get moving or feeling pressurised by the presence of another player hot on your heels. Access to the club is restricted to members only and their invited guests, thus preserving the facility’s exclusivity. It is a par-three course that is relatively flat, but includes several tricky dog-leg holes. The last section is said by many to be one of the most demanding and taxing of all in South Africa, as well as a golfer’s joy and privilege to play.
Riverclub Country Estate is conveniently close to Sandton’s thriving retail, entertainment and business establishments. Sandton’s CBD has become the economic hub of Johannesburg and South Africa as a whole.
Despite this proximity, the Riverclub Country Estate remains blissfully unaffected by the unrelenting heavy traffic, and hectic hustle and bustle associated with a central business district and retailer hub.
The Braamfontein Spruit winds its way along the northern side of the Riverclub Country Estate, and on the eastern border, William Nicol Drive connects the suburb to the extensive Gauteng freeway system, from where one can head to virtually all points of the compass and the country.
While residents are able to live as though they are far removed from the busiest city in South Africa, every element of a modern, world-class lifestyle that they might require or desire is actually conveniently right on their doorstep, be it for work, shopping, entertainment or play. There is also a mosque nearby, as well as a French school. Wouldn’t you love to live here?
