Dainfern, Sandton


Dainfern at a glance

Fourways is one of the standout areas of Johannesburg. With the ease of access to other districts, entertainment and proximity to business parks, it's quickly become one of the most sought-after places to live in Mzansi. Here's what sets Fourways apart from the rest of Johannesburg's suburbs.

Fourways suburbs: Put down roots

The main suburbs within Fourways include Magaliessig, Norscot Slopes, Norscot, Beverley, Lonehill, Broadacres, Craigavon and more. There are estates within these suburbs that boast modern homes with fully fitted finishings and high levels of security. The suburbs in and around Fourways have become prime residential areas for families and young professionals looking to live in a central location.

Dainfern is a neighbouring suburb located a short 22-minute drive (7,1 km) away from Fourways and is another great option for those looking for a central residential area. Dainfern is also largely considered to be a golfing community, with properties in golfing estates being a popular choice. The area has schools, shopping centres, healthcare facilities and more.

Fourways history: A trip down memory lane

When Fourways was first established, the primary use was intended to be for a game farm. Owned by a well-known Johannesburg family at the time, the land was home to a mansion called Norscot Manor in the 1940s. The mansion was sold in the 1970s to the local council and the area was named Norscot. The mansion has since been repurposed into a recreational centre for the community. It features a gallery and library. So where does the name Fourways come into play, you ask? It's the end result of a four-way stop between William Nicol Drive and Witkoppen Road.

Fourways climate: Explore the area's weather

Fourways is positioned more inland than other regions, making it an attractive place to be especially during winters which aren't as harsh as the rest of Johannesburg.
