A little background

Set in the heart of Johannesburg’s leafy suburbs, you will find Linden’s original farmhouse. It has been extensively renovated to its former glory with no expense spared on furnishing and decorating it in the style and luxury of yesteryear. The Farmhouse is a member of the South African Tourism Grading Council and has a four star grading.


A few perks

The gardens are nothing short of magnificent, boasting beautiful old trees, pergolas, water features and a proliferation of African bird life and trellises dripping with roses. When sitting in the garden it is hard to believe that you are in the heart of Johannesburg. It feels as though you are a million miles from the CBD, yet you are only 15 minutes away from both Sandton and Johannesburg.


And, so close

The Farmhouse is just 40 minutes from Johannesburg International Airport. Transfers can be arranged on request. There is a large selection of restaurants in nearby Parkhurst, Greenside and Melville where you can experience Johannesburg’s Café Society. Shopping and movies are just 5 minutes away at the Cresta shopping centre, and in nearby Rosebank, you will find the largest African Market in Johannesburg. Monte Casino and the Sandton Convention Centre are 15 minutes away
