Westdene [View Properties]
DescriptionWestdene is one of those pretty little character-filled suburbs, that tend to lie fairly close to Johannesburg's city centre. Its streets are lined with cottage-styled homes with tin roofs, some of which back onto Westdene's park and dam, and the streets are tree-lined and pretty. There is a village feel to Westdene that has perservered, perhaps because of its proximity to the University of Johannesburg, hence its popularity with students. Westdene is sandwiched between the popular village of Melville and the its at the base of the Melville Koppies Nature Reserve on the other side. Westdene is also fairly close to Emmarentia Dam, and the popular village of Greenside.
