Die Agterplaas is situated at the foot of the historical Melville Koppies. The view, tranquillity and bird life easily lull visitors into forgetting they're in South Africa's busiest city. Yet the attractions of the Melville boutiques, bookshops, coffee bars and nightclubs are just a stone's throw away. We are approximately 3 kilometres from Johannesburg University, and 7 kilometres from Wits.
Melville is famous for its abundance of restaurants, coffee-, book- and other shops that make it exciting to tourists and business people from all over South Africa and abroad. It is a residential area where scores of people from the arts, education and media have been settling over the past half a century. This might be part of the reason that visitors describe people here extremely friendly and interesting.
Johannesburg has a wealth to discover in terms of recent history, and is well situated to briefly experience some of South Africas nature, archeological sites and leisure for those who do not have time for a visit to the Kruger Park, the Garden Route etc. Proximity to Malls, tertiary institutions, media and theatres, hospitals etc.
