About Our Estate

Dainfern, a private Estate nestled away in the north east of Johannesburg, was acquired by Johnnic Properties in 1985. The old Fourways Golf Course formed part and parcel of the acreage acquired by Johnnic Properties and, after a great deal of research, consulting, planning and negotiation, the premier lifestyle Estate, Dainfern, was born.
