The Houghton Apartments are located on either side of The Houghton Hotel, over-looking The Houghton Golf Course and the hotel piazza. Located in one of Johannesburg’s older affluent suburbs the apartments offer entry level investment units of 100sqm up to 3 and 4 bedroom units with penthouse units ranging from 443sqm to 897sqm.

The building, that varies in height, is comprised of 306 apartments, constructed over six phases. The varying structural grid allows for the combination of unit sizes. The ground floor units open to private gardens connecting to the golf course and the hotel piazza. While private courtyards and entrance lobbies are positioned on the opposite side of the building adjacent to the visitor’s surface parking area. The generous penthouse units include a roof terrace garden with a swimming pool and views of the Sandton skyline.

The hotel piazza forms the core of the development with a range of amenities including a gym, spa, restaurant and juice bar.

All apartments are accessed directly from the basement parking to the front door of the apartment via a shared lift. The typical layout of a unit includes the master bedroom and living spaces to the North, taking advantage of the Northern light and the view. Bedroom 2 and Bedroom 3, both with en-suite bathrooms are positioned to the South of the apartments with views toward the ridge. The kitchen, scullery and guest WC are centrally located within the apartment due to the lower light requirements of these spaces. Glass sliding doors allow the living spaces on the North elevation of the apartment to open to balconies for outside living. Moveable aluminium shutters on the balconies are controlled by the residents of the apartment allowing them adjust the façade to optimize their comfort, while also generating a layer of variation on the façade.
