Melrose [View Properties]
DescriptionMelrose is a delightful established suburb in Johannesburg's northern suburbs. Melrose is considered one of the city's most desirable suburbs, with beautiful homes on large stands and beautifully maintained pavements. During the Jacaranda season, Melrose is a sight to behold, with its Jacaranda-lined streets turning purple. Some of the older homes on larger stands have given way to Cluster and Estate living with sought-after modern residential developments being built. The beautiful well-maintained public parks areas are well utilised by residents. Top private schools include Kingsmead, Pridwin, and St Davids and St Teresas nearby. Standard Bank Head Office relocated to Rosebank, which borders Melrose. Within close proximity is the Rosebank district shopping district, with the Zone and Rosebank Mall in walking distance as well as the Gautrain's Rosebank station. In addition, Melrose is adjacent to the Melrose Arch precinct.
