Gallo Manor

The Johannesburg suburb of Gallo Manor is situated in the north of the city to the East of Bowling Road. Gallo Manor is bounded in the north by the Johannesburg Country Club and in the south by Wendywood. Gallo Manor is an up-market suburb, much of which is fenced off as a high security area. Because of this, Gallo Manor has managed to retain an almost park like atmosphere, attributable in part to the lush lawns, established gardens and tree-lined streets.

The suburb is very close to the vast Buccleuch Interchange which links the N1, M1 and N3 highways, ideal for convenient logistical purposes. The suburb is about 30 minutes drive from Johannesburg International Airport.

There is little traffic in this quiet suburb of Johannesburg and it helps that Gallo Manor is bounded by Wendywood, another green suburb, and the Johannesburg Country Club. Residential property and commercial office space in Gallo Manor are consistently in demand, whatever the market vagaries. Many young professionals prefer to live in a garden suburb within easy reach of Sandton and with excellent access to major arterial roads. Gallo Manor has been touted as a contemporary crossover between city and country living and has managed this largely because there are few townhouse and cluster developments with many of the homes here located on sprawling properties. Commercial office space in Gallow Manor is more often than not converted residential space on such sprawling estates.

Fourways, Kyalami, Midrand and the airport are all relatively close by and there are a number of restaurants and shops in the near vicinity (Ten minutes away from Monte Casino and Fourways Mall). The suburb is just a few blocks from Rivonia Boulevard, so there is plenty to choose from during lunch hours and leisure time. Situated just a few blocks from Gallo Manor is the Woodmead Commercial Park, which houses a number of well-known consumer outlets in the Woodmead Value Mart and the Woodmead Super Value Centre. The suburb is also close to the Vodacom World of Golf and the Woodmead Golf Driving Range.
