Of all of Johannesburg’s suburbs, Hyde Park and Sandhurst, both of which are situated on the doorstep of Sandton, must have among the strongest claims to being the most desirable addresses available anywhere within the Gauteng region. According to Rupert Finnemore, who heads up Pam Golding Properties Gauteng region, these two suburbs are highly prestigious and have long been regarded as the home of Johannesburg’s elite. “Many of the city’s people aspire to live in Hyde Park and Sandhurst, and the immense status of owning a property in the area, as well as its geographically desirable location, have ensured the ongoing popularity of homes there,” adds Finnemore. “While the upper-end of the residential property market in Gauteng has generally flattened in recent years, suburbs such as Hyde Park and Sandhurst remain highly regarded and much sought after addresses.

And certainly, some of these exclusive mansions in these suburbs, with their extensive and immaculate gardens, can fetch as much as R80 million,” points out Finnemore. In recent years, however, some of the properties within the area have . . .
