BAVARIAN STYLE VILLA ON ROLLING LANDSCAPED GROUNDS IN OAKDENE
Lying to the south of the centre of Johannesburg, Oakdene nestles in amongst its neighbouring suburbs of Linmeyer, Glenanda and Bassonia.

Parts of Oakdene rest on a hill that at night has incredible views over Johannesburg. The access from Oakdene to the N12 and consequently the M1 is very good too, and local shopping centres make it an easy space in which to reside. And then there is Johannesburg's city centre, just seven kilometres from Oakdene.
