Fourways is a fast developing commercial and residential hub of Johannesburg, located to the north of Sandton. This thriving suburb encompasses an unusual blend of both country and city life making it desirable to a wide variety of buyers.
In the early 20th century Fourways began as a game farm owned by the Eriksen family, who built a large residence known as Norscot Manor. The land was gradually sold off and in the 1970s the stately Cape Dutch manor was given to the City Council of Johannesburg. Norscot Manor now serves Fourways as a recreational centre housing a library, art gallery as well as a tea garden, and in 2015 received blue plaque heritage status. Fourways derived its name from the four way stop where Witkoppen Road and William Nicol Drive met.
Fourways is neighboured by Bryanston on its southern and eastern side, and Randburg to the west.
