Parktown North is located in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, adjacent to the vibrant business and shopping hub of Rosebank. Its proximity to the Gautrain in Rosebank, also allows easy access to OR Tambo airport and Pretoria within a short time. The residential houses were originally built for relatives of the gold and silver mine owners, who established their enormous mansions on the Parktown Ridge during the Gauteng gold rush in the 1890s. Parktown North has plenty of popular restaurants and eateries close by, and for the more active residents, sporting and recreational facilities too are within easy reach. The suburb mostly features colonial-style family homes with some sectional title complexes interspersed, giving it a broad appeal.
