Houghton Estate at a glance

Houghton Estate is an exceedingly affluent suburb located just north of central Johannesburg. Neighbouring suburbs include Killarney, Riviera, Norwood and Rosebank. Houghton itself was developed as a residential area around the turn of the 20th century, and was laid out by surveyor Gustav Arthur Troye.

Houghton has historically been known as Jewish area, and has a shul, but has evolved over the last few years into a multi-cultural suburb, with a mosque situated in the east of the suburb.

Houghton features its own luxurious golf club along with nearby Killarney Country Club - both providing an idyllic golfing experience for the discerning sportsman. The Old Edwardian Society sports club (known as Old Eds), which includes a separate Virgin Active gym, is also in Houghton.

In close proximity to Houghton is Killarney Mall, offering a variety of stores from supermarkets, clothing and travel, to restaurants and a cinema. Residents of this area also have nearby Rosebank Mall and The Zone for all their retail and entertainment needs. Opposite The Zone, is the Rosebank Gautrain Station located beneath Oxford Road, between Baker Street and Tyrwhitt Avenue.

The upper part of Houghton contains numerous buildings and houses of historical value. One of these buildings includes the King Edwards VII School for Boys, which is located just off of Munro Drive and is over 100 years old. Other schools in the area include primary school (King Edward VII Preparatory School), St John's College (a private, Anglican school for boys), and Roedean, a private Anglican girls school.

The most famous resident of Houghton Estate was Nelson Mandela, who passed away at his lower Houghton home, which has become a site of remembrance in the aftermath of his death.

Houghton Estate is 'n gegoede woonbuurt geleë net Noord van die Johannesburgse middestad. Naburige buurte sluit in Killarney, Riviera, Norwood en Rosebank. Houghton self is ontwikkel as 'n residensiële gebied rondom die draai van die 20ste eeu, en is uitgelê deur landmeter Gustav Arthur Troye.

Houghton was histories bekend as die Joodse gebied, en het 'n shul, maar het oor die laaste paar jaar ontwikkel in 'n multi-kulturele voorstad, met 'n moskee in die ooste van die voorstad.

Houghton het sy eie luukse gholfklub saam met die nabygeleë Killarney Country Club - beide verskaf 'n idilliese golf ervaring vir die kieskeurige sportman. Die Old Edwardian Society sportklub (bekend as Ou Eds) is ook in Houghton, en sluit in 'n aparte Virgin Active-gimnasium.

Naby Houghton is Killarney Mall, wat 'n verskeidenheid winkels bied, vanaf supermarkte, klere en reis, tot restaurante en 'n teater. Inwoners van die gebied het ook die nabygeleë Rosebank Mall en The Zone vir al hul inkopie en vermaak behoeftes. Oorkant The Zone, is die Rosebank Gautrain Stasie geleë onder Oxford Road, tussen Baker Straat en Tynwhittlaan.

Die boonste deel van Houghton bevat talle geboue en huise van historiese waarde. Een van die geboue sluit in die King Edwards VII School for Boys, wat geleë is net af van Munro Drive en is meer as 100 jaar oud. Ander skole in die gebied sluit in primêre skool (King Edward VII Voorbereidingskool), St John's College ('n private, Anglikaanse skool vir seuns), en Roedean, 'n private Anglikaanse meisies skool.

Die bekendste inwoner van Houghton Estate was Nelson Mandela, wat in sy laer Houghton huis gesterf het, wat na sy dood ‘n plek van herinnering geword het.
