Fourways at a glance
Fourways – Commercial, Residential and Leisure in One
The area known as Fourways is situated in the Northern Suburbs of Sandton, north of Johannesburg. Before the district became famous as Fourways it was home to the Eriksen family who owned a 245-hectare game farm. They made this large farm their residence in 1940 when they built Norscot Manor, a classic Cape Dutch house. After they sold the farm piece by piece, Norscot Manor became the property of City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality. This famous Cape Dutch residence became a recreation centre known as Norscot Recreation Centre. Up until today it is mostly used as a library but also serves the community with an art gallery, dance studio, Irish lessons for children, and a playground and tea garden.
Fourways is known for its collection of suburbs known as Little Fourways, Norscot, Fourways, Pineslopes, Lonehill, Beverley, Craigavon and Broadacres. There are five popular residential estates namely Cedar Lakes, Fourways Gardens, Dainfern Golf & Residential Estate, Dainfern Valley and Fernbrook Estate.
