Parktown North is peachy. Metres from a main road (Jan Smuts Avenue), minutes from the Jozi city centre and home to two of the country’s finest coffee shops: Moema’s and Lulu’s - and you’ve arrived in one of the trendiest ’burbs around.
It’s all about location and if you’ve made Parktown North your home, you couldn’t be better located. Deeds Office data reveals that you’re probably also aren’t low on doh. This area doesn’t come cheap – but nothing this good does, right?
Just north of Rosebank, you’ll find this delightful, tree-lined suburb. It’s nestled between the stylish settlements of Parktown, Craighall Park, Rosebank and Parkhurst.
The area’s a real win – with lush-green parks, stunning sidewalk cafés, gorgeous old homes, and oozes character – and that includes the residents. The funky Rosebank Mall and The Zone are the closest mega amenities around. It’s here that you’ll find a fantastic rooftop market on a Sunday, loads of trendy stores, Cinema Noveau and fabulous, famous eat outs like Cranks. Parktown North is also a stone throw from a host of good schools, tertiary institutions, hotels and hospitals.
The area seems to have attracted a great mix of yuppies and families, widely reflecting the rainbow nation. So it’s not unusual to spot trendy types in skinny jeans, and bohemian mommies and daddies pushing prams - all strolling about the suburb.
