About the neighborhood
North Riding is THE place to stay if you want to be close to the Randburg CBD, The Ticket pro Dome, Kya Sands Business Park, the Olivedale Clinic or Fourways with Montecasino. Shopping malls include Northgate and Fourways and plenty little ones scattered all around. A few kilometers in a northerly direction, you find yourself out of town and in the bush, with wildlife in game reserves all around. Good restaurants and eateries abound. Highways are within easy access.
