The suburb of Melville is one of the more picturesque villages in Johannesburg. Large Jacaranda trees line the streets and the houses are quaint and artfully restored. Magnificent views can be seen from Melville of the city skyline, the urban forest and of rooftops floating above the canopy of trees.
The charm of this 100 year old suburb is its cosmopolitan and unpretentious village character, its street café society and the fact that you can safely walk the streets. At night, Melville comes alive with people wandering down 4th Avenue and 7th street, drinking cocktails, having dinner or simply browsing through the shops.
