These suburbs together form an upper class, wealthy residential area of Johannesburg, South Africa. First named as an area in 1949,it was established in 1969 as the suburb of Sandton and provided with tarred roads and municipal services, but after municipal boundaries were revised following the end of Apartheid, Sandton was merged with Johannesburg to form part of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality. Bryanston is ideally situated close to the business hub of Sandton, creating enormous demand for properties.
Originally Sandton consisted of farmhouses varying from sizes of 1 to 3 hectares (1 hectare = 4000sqm), however many properties are being subdivided to either offer exclusive, secure estates as well as Summercon apartment complexes. Clusters in secure estates are in huge demand to provide residents with security and a 'lock-up-and-go' lifestyle, allowing them to visit their holiday/ weekend homes nearby. The average price of a property in Sandton ranges from R1.5 million for a 1 bedroomed flat, around R3,5 million for an ordinary freestanding home on the outskirts, around R5 million for a 3-4bedroomed cluster and between R8 million to R30 million for a magnificent mansion set on Eccleston Crescent (known as Millionaires Row) or Mount Street,to name a few.

About Johannesburg CBD
Johannesburg is an African city of note. Johannesburg is characterised by contradiction and an apparent seamless combination of irreconcilable differences. The largest city in South Africa, Johannesburg is also the wealthiest and, without doubt, the economic powerhouse of Africa.
Johannesburg is a booming, happening city and the emphasis is on making money - whether in business or on the streets - and has been since its beginnings when the world’s richest gold fields were discovered in Johannesburg during the 1880s.
The Johannesburg inner city, abandoned by an exodus of big business that transferred to Sandton and, until recently, avoided by all except die-hard tourists, is undergoing a complete regeneration. The area close to City Hall and Newtown Cultural Precinct, which has completely transformed the Market Theatre and surrounds, now forms the heart of urban revival, and the Johannesburg inner city remains the largest employment centre in South Africa.
