While Linden used to be known as a largely Afrikaans, not very exciting suburb, it has recently grown into one of Joburg’s most interesting, upmarket and culturally diverse places to live. There are a variety of properties on offer, from the more traditional standalone houses to clusters, sectional title townhouses, apartments and even a few promising fixer-uppers.

Residents love that it’s a well maintained suburb with good schools nearby, a well-managed police station and an active community association. New complexes being developed speak to the growing demand for property in this area, and the strong sense of community shines through in the Linden Community Newspage on Facebook. Whether you’re looking for a local business, need to find out about services in the area, want to report any incidents or share activities, this is the place to do it.
