Quintessential Kensington Home on the Block


A prime, “quintessentially Kensington” four-bedroom family residence with scenic Johannesburg views will go under Park Village Auctions’ hammer on the 21st of September.

Kensington, Johannesburg, is a sought-after suburb with hilly, tree-lined streets steeped in history pre-dating the Witwatersrand gold rush. Home to the Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club and a castle to boot, PVA’s Nic Techmann says that the area holds a certain regal appeal.

According to Techmann, the property in question, number 320 Highland Road, “has a lot to offer a growing family.”

“Over and above the historical charm in its wooden floors, pressed ceilings and basement storage, the premises effortlessly blends in contemporary comfort with modern features,” explains Techmann.

A large, sunny, elevated front patio straddles the front entrance and French doors, which open from the living room with a feature wall fireplace. The living area gives way to an open-plan dining room and spacious kitchen with a scullery; a wide hallway; a family bathroom with shower and a corner bath; three bedrooms of which the main has an en-suite bathroom with a shower. A wooden staircase leads to a fourth loft bedroom, which overlooks the backyard. Basement storage is accessible via a discreet outside door on the side of the house.

The property further features a swimming pool and a studio-style cottage with a kitchenette and bathroom, “perfectly suited for those with an adult child or who may want rental income.”

Techmann, “Adding to the property’s desirability is its proximity to Bedford Shopping Centre, Eastgate, several private and renowned public schools and accessibility to the N12 and N3 highways.”

Other nearby facilities and amenities include Bedford Gardens and Linksfield Hospital, Bedfordview licence department, The Ivy Champagne Garden and virgin active Bedfordview.

The auction will be held on-site at 320 Highland Road, Kensington, Johannesburg, on Tuesday the 21st of September at 11 am.

Viewing can be arranged by appointment by contacting Nic Techmann on or 083 383 7366. For more information, terms and conditions, visit web reference number 823.
