Dainfern provides a very secure environment for its residents, where there is no fear of crime and an all-inclusive lifestyle that caters for all members of the community.
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.
Complimentary Lifestyle events take place throughout the year and are an important element in forging a strong sense of community – annual events include The Easter Egg Hunt, Mother’s & Father’s Day celebrations, a Christmas Market, Halloween Trick or Treating, and Carols by Candlelight.
Residents as well as non-residents band together to enjoy all the luxurious, active and serene offerings that make Dainfern ‘home’ through sound environmental principles and thus enrich tranquil residential living at Dainfern and provide as much indigenous highveld vegetation as possible.
