About the neighbourhood
Houghton/Riviera is a beautiful upmarket area in the North of Johannesburg. 2 houses down lives the former South African president, President Mbeki. The suburb is a beautiful one to walk through with 100 year old tree lined avenues. The Johannesburg Zoo, a short walk away. We are exceptionally well located, a block from the Gautrain bus, just over 1 km (2 US$ by Uber) to the Rosebank shopping district with trendy restaurants and upmarket malls and a Gautrain station. Trendy Melrose Arch is 4km away, Sandton shopping district and business hub 8km away. Maboneng district (inner city rejuvenation and Art district) 5km. 3 min to the M1 highway. 1 km from Joburg Zoo and Military museum and 2km to Zoo lake and Moyo restaurant.
