Northcliff property guide

Northcliff at a glance

As one of the more established suburbs in Johannesburg, Northcliff is popular with property buyers looking for a quieter, yet an exclusive lifestyle.

Properties in the older part of Northcliff are situated on large grounds with lush gardens, while the newer developments in the west cater to the younger generation looking for more modern properties.

A big drawing card for the area is the fact that there is almost no industrial or commercial blocks in the area, making it the perfect neighbourhood for those who are looking for a peaceful outdoor lifestyle, while still being able to quickly access the world-class amenities on offer just a few minutes away from Northcliff.

Northcliff's large homes are nestled around a steep incline of the hill, and on the foot of Northcliff borders the suburbs of Fairlands, Blackheath, Cresta, and Berario. Recently some streets have been boomed in order to provide Northcliff's high-income residents with more security and exclusivity.

The suburb is served by Cresta Shopping Centre, one of the largest malls in Johannesburg which is located on the border of Northcliff in the suburb of Cresta. Many other smaller suburban shopping complexes are within easy access, for example, Northcliff Corner, The Verdi Centre, Heathway Square, and Home Living Design Centre.

If you are considering investing in property in Northcliff, you can expect to pay R 2 750 000 on average for a house and R 960 000 for an apartment.
