Cosmopolitan living with a sense of community


This upscale designer real estate in Steyn City’s flagship development, City Centre, encapsulates cosmopolitan living within a tranquil, natural environment.


Rooted in luxury, this upscale designer home showcase combines the best of urban cosmopolitan living with a quaint ambience and sense of community.

Some spaces instantly feel like home, embracing you in tranquillity and peace. This is the ambience you’ll experience when you walk into the show apartment designed by Johann Gerber and Ashley Hudson-Lamb of Home Collab to showcase the City Centre, Steyn City’s flagship development.

There’s no denying that Steyn City is an inspiring environment. With its verdant parklands, abundant trees and stunning lagoon, it’s a setting like no other. So it’s not surprising that Johann and Ashley settled on this one-of-a-kind location as their muse, striving to capture its essence in the showcase through a design that effortlessly brings the magnificent outdoors in.


Home Collab’s vision echoes the broader Steyn City design ethos. Rooted in luxury, it combines the dynamism of urban cosmopolitan living with the warmth and intimacy of community. This is reflected in the two-bedroomed show apartment, with features that convey welcoming hospitality: think spacious balconies and expansive indoor areas, with spaces specially tailored to gathering, feasting and celebrating. Key highlights here include the custom-made dining table, the kitchen bar counter and, of course, the patio, where sweeping views add to the ambience.

Inside, the mood is plush and polished. A gentle palette of natural green hues mirrors the apartment’s surroundings, acknowledging Steyn City’s emphasis on connecting with the outdoors. Metallic accents add a touch of glamour, elevating the atmosphere with a dash of luxe, while textured wallpapers create a tactile element. The bespoke design featured in the master bedroom is especially remarkable, lending depth, warmth and allure to the space. Like a golden thread, this theme is continued in other rooms through features like custom-made headboards with leather detailing, soft furnishings and beautiful Hertex fabrics. The overall sense is sumptuous softness and elegance in a space with a strong sense of individuality.


Beyond the apartment, the bustle of the City Centre beckons. The development has broken the mould of urban apartment living with its unique village-like atmosphere. Instead of an imposing, monolithic building, homes are clustered around a series of treed piazzas in small groups. The result calls to mind the grand capitals of Europe, with their lively ambience and irresistible buzz.

This has been especially noticeable since the development launched its exciting retail element, with shops and restaurants inviting residents and non-residents alike to browse and wander along the City Centre’s upper piazza. Sip a frothy cappuccino from Seattle Coffee Company while checking out the colourful cookware at Le Creuset, or treat yourself to a decadent dessert or ice cream from Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream. The Gallery at Steyn City beckons with a carefully curated collection of art in various mediums, while Johannesburg’s favourite family of Italian restaurants, Café del Sol, offers Mediterranean-style dining with bold, flavoursome dishes inspired by sun-kissed shores and cooked with love. Visitors to the piazza can also visit Café del Sol’s Deli to select from a range of speciality cheeses and charcuterie, freshly prepared oven meals, pasta sauces and bread to create a feast at home. It all contributes to a place that blends the best of city living with the serenity of sprawling parkland.


City Centre at Steyn City offers a range of apartments and penthouses, from one to four bedrooms, catering to various needs and preferences. Prices range from R2.6m to R35m, with rental options also available. To truly discover the wonders of this exceptional lifestyle in Johannesburg, we invite you to visit Steyn City and arrange an exclusive tour with our dedicated team.
