In the 1940s, Bryanston was established and exclusively consisted of farms and smallholdings. Today, the area has a vibrant, country quality and is reasonably close to the city. This sought-after combination is attractive for those wanting to reside in a quiet, picturesque neighbourhood close to the CBD. Bryanston is a large refined, leafy suburb and the residents have a strong sense of community. Every amenity is available and easily accessible. After business hours and on weekends, local, top restaurants, coffee shops, stores and boutiques are a hive of activity. For those who are active and enjoy the great outdoors, the popular Bryanston Country Club offers an 18-hole golf course, bowling greens, squash and tennis courts as well as a swimming pool and lapa. There are many superb schools in the area including St Stithians College, Brescia House, Redhill, British International College and The French School Lycée Jules Verne. The properties in Bryanston were originally all expansive, grand houses and large gardens but, in recent years, demand has prompted smaller developments, properties have been subdivided and modern apartments, townhouses and cluster developments have become common features in the area.
