DEVELOPERS OPPORTUNITY!!!

A home to behold. The buyer with vision character and foresight will purchase this beautiful ''in the bush"' in the city home. the development opportunities are really a dime a dozen as well as the opportunity to turn this mansion into a Bed and Breakfast. if AirBnB can operate then why cant you from here.LINKSFIELD RIDGE!!!We who live in Johannesburg sometimes take for granted how very special the older suburbs actuallyare –The best homes on Linksfield Ridge have views that stretch as far as the Magaliesberg to the north.Linksfield Ridge is a prominent rocky outcrop across the eastern part of Johannesburg city. A number of undeveloped zones still exist along the ridge and a number of other geocaches can be found among the rocks on this ridge.

It is some 130 years since gold was discovered and the city of Johannesburg was founded. People settled on the ridges and hills as well as in the valleys and dales. The residential properties located on the ridges are considered to be the most desirable for their views, their elevations and their well-established trees and gardens.The ridges of Johannesburg are part of the natural heritage and are features that make this a unique city on the Highveld.The quartz rocks created an obstacle for the road builders of the early 20th century, as the challenge was to connect suburbs of the north to the south. A remarkable achievement was the construction of three Johannesburg passes and our city has the distinction of being the place where you will find the three shortest passes in South Africa. These are Stewart Drive, Munro Drive and Sylvia Pass.All three passes in Johannesburg feature on a website on the mountain passes of South Africa. We often think a trip to the Cape, KwaZulu Natal or Mpumalanga is needed to view spectacular scenic panoramas but right here, if you give an hour to your city, you can see it all in miniature.

Vicinity:

The surrounding suburbs of Linksfield are (clockwise from the north) Maryvale, Sydenham, Doornfontein 92 IR,Fairwood, Mountain View, Houghton Estate, Fellside, Victoria, Norwood and Orchards. There is a strong sense of community between Orange Grove and its surrounding areas. Most of the residents were blue collar citizens. A popular place for children of the area to meet was Patterson Park, in front of the Norwood Police Flats. The area was previously a recreational hub, with pools, tennis courts, athlectic laws, and sporting fields. Today however all that remains is the derelict bowls club house.
Sylvia Pass is located in Mountain View and is the main road up the hillside taking one from Fairwood and Orange Grove to Observatory, Linksfield Ridge and Cyrildene. It is the shortest official pass in South Africa and is only about one third of a kilometre in length and in that distance you rise about 290 metres on an “S” curve.This is the natural barrier of the ridge between the northern suburbs – Orange Grove, Norwood, Highlands North, Sydenham and beyond – and the suburbs to the south such as Cyrildene, Bruma and Kensington.
The suburbs straddling the ridge are Linksfield Ridge, Mountain View, Observatory Extension and Upper Houghton. When you reach the summit the elevation is 1,757 metres. It was Messrs Kallenbach and Kennedy who purchased vast swathes of undeveloped land in Linksfield and across the ridge to the west and gave some of it to the city council for the construction of Sylvia Pass
