Glenwood property guide

Glenwood at a glance

As one of Durban’s oldest suburbs, Glenwood is a mixture of colonial-style mansions near the university to apartments closer to Durban CBD which allows for property buyers from different price brackets to find a place to call home here.

Recently this sedate, tree-lined neighbourhood has seen a suburban revival due to the hive of activity along Davenport, Bulwer and Ferguson roads where antique shops, restaurants, cafés and the KZNSA Gallery attracts a loyal following to its doors. Another factor is the proximity of this suburb to Durban CBD - which makes this a perfect commuter suburb.

Glenwood has a neighbourly vibe and the restored Victorian houses, tree-lined streets and easy access to the centre of Durban make this suburb an ideal place to stay. Its residents tend to be academics, artists, designers and the like who have given the neighbourhood a distinctly ‘trendy’ vibe.
