The suburb of Kew is located just over 6 km from the major business district of Sandton. The area was named after the Kew Gardens, which can be found in London. The suburb itself was founded in 1905, which is why some of the properties are a bit older in this region. There are a number of well-priced homes for sale in the area. You will also be able to find apartments and commercial properties.
The northern section of Kew contains mostly industrial and commercial properties. Some businesses in this area include auto body workshops, various manufacturers and import export companies. The area has this large industrial area because it is ideally located close to major roads, which provides easy access to places like the OR Tambo International Airport. There are also a few churches that have made this area their home. The rest of the suburb of Kew is mostly residential.
Schools close to Kew include the Lyndhurst Primary School, the Glenhazel Primary School, Northview High School, and the Gresswold Senior School. There are some smaller shopping centres located here and there, but residents can also visit the Balfour Mall, which is just down the road from the Kew area.
There are one or two parks in the region, where the kids can play outdoors. Nearby is the smaller Weinberg Family Park and further south of Kew, is the slightly larger Glenhazel Park. There are also a number of popular golf courses in the surrounding regions including the Killarney Country Club.
