Nestled high up against Table Mountain and tucked comfortably in the arm of Kirstenbosch Gardens and Newlands Forest, many homes in the area enjoying spectacular views over Cape Town.

Claremont is all about cosy Cape Town and getting one's hands on a property will without doubt open up a colloquial village experience suitable for the first time homeowner, families or those keen to retire with a foot in the village as it were.
To be part of the buzz, and there's always something happening in this neighbourhood; to literally have everything at your fingertips - yet be able to retreat into your homely-home and leave the buzz behind.

Part trendy, part historical, part traditional, part academia – Newlands sits snugly against the mountain while the rest of suburbia nudges its coat tails. Some say if you live in Newlands you won’t have to leave to go anywhere else (other than the beach perhaps) as everything is within walking distance.
Folk with property in this sought after neighbourhood seem to put down roots for generations. So when property for sale comes knocking the interest levels among buyers is significant. With its easy access to the City Bowl via Rhodes Drive and Newlands Avenue, old fashioned lanes with towering oaks trees seem to settle the hustle and bustle that passes its way each day.
Carefully restored period architecture homes sits side by side with eclectic developments and one is pretty much guaranteed no matter where you are in Newlands of a mountain view from some corner of your property.

While schools in the area, namely Westerford High and SACS Preparatory and High offer some of the country's top facilities and educational curriculums.
The University of Cape Town has a toe in Newlands and the lively student culture and vibe keeps the suburb humming to a different beat on a daily basis. The world famous Vineyard Hotel offers homeowners and visitors alike an option of pampering and fine dining. Just up the road you’ll find the Foresters Arms a well known pub and eatery that is frequented by the sporting set prior to walking to the nearby rugby or cricket stadium, families on Sundays and the student crew in the evenings.
Rondebosch makes up part of the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. Although not situated near the sea, the Southern Suburbs make up the most popular residential areas in Cape Town, conveniently situated close to shopping facilities, leading Universities and schools, sporting facilities and more. Homes in Rondebosch are also very reasonably priced compared to that of the seaside areas.
Not only is property for sale in this area a solid investment, primarily due to the location of the University of Cape Town, but it also offers the unique experience of living, as it were, in a university village without feeling over-run by student life.
Certainly the culture is fresh and ever-changing in terms of its diverse and youthful population, but homeowners who live in this comfortable stretch of the Peninsula love the fringe-of-academia lifestyle it brings.
Around 1656 the first experimental crops were planted by the Dutch along the Liesbeeck River up to and including the area known as Rondebosch. Today, property ranges from charming, cottagey with some of the original orchards still producing in back yards, to more spacious homes often with a Victorian touch.

The Constantia valley boasts rural and park like landscapes backed by a majestic mountain range. Constantia also offers some of Cape Town's finest wine Farms such as Groot Constantia, Constantia Uitsig, Klein Constantia and Buitenverwaghting.
A mention of this address to friends and acquaintances will certainly have everyone’s attention. This timeless suburb offers probably the most exclusive mink and manure lifestyle one could dream of. Grand old oak trees, muddy wellington boots, timeless Sunday braais, paddocks that thump to the sound of horses hooves and clean crisp mountain air. In winter spectacular waterfalls gush down Table Mountain, framed by your living area, ending up in a stream or river close to your home.
Constantia offers space in an age where everything is space-maxed and cheek by jowl. Wine estates are on your doorstep and salute not only exceptional grapes but fine dining.

Cape Dutch architecture is a calling card for many visitors to this area and wine estates, the oldest of which Groot Constantia was established in 1684, are kept in pristine form to salute this bygone era. Homes are expansive and property often includes streams, stables, paddocks and certainly room for a pony or two.

Just five minutes drive from Constantia is the popular residential area of Tokai. Tokai is conveniently situated close to many fine restaurants, bars, two leading golf courses (Steenberg and Westlake), one of Cape Town's finest schools Redham, modern shopping facilities and more and has seen fantastic growth over recent years.
The area is most notable for its wine estates bordering up-market Constantia as well as being known as a nature lovers paradise with Tokai Forest (planted by Simon van der Stel) on ones doorstep for walkers, runners, mountain bikers or just for pushing the pram or walking the dog. Originally the forest was planted with oak trees but over time made way for a pine plantation. Access to the mountain and beaches in three directions (Hout Bay, Noordhoek, Muizenberg) makes for an ideal existence and homeowners tend to remain in this area for generations.
Views of the mountain are unsurpassed and considered developments in line with preserving the country atmosphere and treading as softly as possible in the environment, make for a very pleasant lifestyle. Property for sale is an attractive option for investors and those keen to settle. Community and family life is centered around a villagey-type atmosphere with parks, libraries, churches, schools, weekend markets and sporting events taking place throughout the year.
Tokai was originally part of a farm (the original homestead is still habitable) and period style Cape Dutch architecture can still be found in other homes in leafy Tokai often with beautifully established gardens and room for expansion. Property is sought after and Sunday drives are common place as prospective home owners are always on the lookout for, For Sale signs, and a welcome step up to great piece of the Cape.
The up market Constantia Shopping Centre will no doubt become your local haunt and wonderful weekend events such as the Alphen Antiques Fair, a serious draw card for locals and those who appreciate the finer things in life. Silvermine Nature Reserve, wonderfully maintained, straddles the mountain above the suburb and Steenberg Golf Course the ideal escape for golfers.
Bordering the Constantia valley Wynberg makes up part of Cape Town's Southern Suburbs. This charming area is conveniently situated close to top schools, shopping centres, sports clubs and more. Wynberg Chelsea boats quaint boutique shops, fine restaurants and pubs.
What makes property so attractive in this snug valley is the peace and quiet afforded to an area that is right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Homely cottages and landscaped gardens leading to grand homes partner each other along the tree-lined streets.
Bordering exclusive Bishopscourt, Constantia and trendy Claremont and Kenilworth this sought after suburb brings home all that a property owner could wish for. Tradition, community, a touch of an English village and comfort and style epitomises this area.
Wynberg Village, home to designer shops, galleries, delightful antique shops and fine dining, has been declared an urban conservation area and home to one of the largest collection of historic properties in and around Cape Town, possibly the country.
At the top of Wynberg lies Chart Rose Farm with its amazing choice of roses for purchase along with a coffee shop and restaurant that brings the countryside home. Wynberg Park opens up spaces for families, walkers and nature lovers to connect and unwind. While Maynardville Park and Open Air Theatre present shows for creative and arty folk alike.
The English connection relates back to the late 1700’s when the farming area of Wynberg developed into a garrison town as the British settled a vast number of troops in the area. As development occurred, so to were schools established for the community at large. Wynberg Boy’s High School is the second oldest school in the country while the Primary and the Girls School sprung up over necessity in time.
Property for sale is seen as a valuable asset in any portfolio and a lifestyle choice for families.
Plumstead forms part of the Southern Suburbs and is a popular residential area for first time buyers and those looking to get into the market at fairly low prices with the area made up mainly of many smaller cottagey homes and apartments. There are many shops, schools, sporting facilities and restaurants.
In terms of property for sale, Plumstead serves as the jam in the sandwich when it comes to its neighbours. Nestled in good company with Constantia and Wynberg this suburb offers a sweet spread.
One of the founding farms of the Cape, investors continue to value this area for its central position, unbelievable views of the Table Mountain range all the way to Silvermine in the south and choice access to both the City and Simonstown.
Named after an English village – the atmosphere supports the very same. Many of the property for sale signs are only up for a short while as the pricing as well as 1940 and 1950 period style homes with wooden flooring and in some instances pressed ceilings are readily sought by those wishing to retain a bygone style yet not pay the excessive prices to enter this market.
Plumstead Sports Club serves the community offering tennis, bowling, cricket and rugby to enthusiastic players and teams. Plumstead Primary and High schools continue to provide a solid education and the old churches, some turn of the century continue to enjoy strong community support.
You won’t necessarily see high walls and intense security in the area as time seems to have stood still forever in Plumstead. Families walk their dogs in the evenings, soccer balls get kicked at parks and along pavements and people tend to stop and chat to their neighbours and slow the pace down.
One of the major attractions to Plumstead is the fact that the main road is dotted with antique and collectible stores as well as furniture restoration. Bakeries, and amazing fish ‘n chip shop that apparently sells the best in the Cape, pubs and taverns all add to the arty vibe that the suburb offers.
Diep River offers predominantly smaller and lower priced homes. The Diep River Chelsea area offers quaint Victorian Cottages and has been through a revival of late with many of the older homes being restored to their former glory. There are many restaurants, shopping facilities and schools of the Southern Suburbs in close proximity.
So named after the river that runs through the suburb, property for sale in the area has certainly shifted over the years. Buyers have come to recognized the potential of this un-discovered pocket of coffee shops, bakeries, period architecture and even a re-vamped 3 Arts Theatre that is set to play host to major theatre productions and events. That coupled with the close proximity to a direct link to the City or the beaches via the train system – Diep River could easily be overlooked by those not paying attention.
Coupled with quaint homes and a community spirit, easy access to one of the Cape’s top shopping centres, Constantia Village, wine estates on your doorstep and a colloquial atmosphere will have you settling and putting down roots in no time at all.
Nestled between trendy Harfield Village and Plumstead with panoramic views of the Table Mountain range Diep River still offers some gem finds in terms of competitive property prices as the suburb continues to develop and mature. Fine schools from Pre-Primary to High are on your doorstep. Bistros and taverns are nestled within the neighborhood and convenience stores offer accessibility at all hours.
Ideally positioned between the hum of the City and the peace and tranquility of the Cape’s finest beaches the overlap between business and pleasure will be a welcome balance.
This area is all about family so it’s no surprise that two well established retirement villages are offered to the elderly in this neck of the woods. Guest houses compliment the growing hum in the ‘burb and the happy chatter of positive growth and development is welcomed by all going forward.
Observatory is a quaint and arty village with many bohemian shops, restaurants and bars lining the main street. Made up mostly of charming Victorian Cottages, Observatory is a popular area for first time buyers and those seeking a vibrant and alternative lifestyle.
Observatory or ‘Obs’ as it is fondly termed was named after the location of the first Royal Observatory in the area established in 1820. The area is sandwiched between University campuses, the slopes of Devils Peak (with stunning views) the railway line to the City Bowl and Mowbray and Salt River on either side. In ‘the day’ this suburb was mainly frequented by students and lecturers as access to campus life was and still is so convenient.
Over time the more trendy creative set nudged their way in along with first time homeowners looking for property for sale but also families who enjoyed the village life and wanted their youngsters to grow up in a slightly alternative space. With a distinctly ‘Obs’ entertainment scene there is always something to do or see at the drop of a hat.
Unusual cottages, most in pristine condition after loving renovations, line the streets much like a typical English village. Houses in ‘Obs’ are quite distinct with their double story design and ‘broekies lace’ detail on balconies make for a charming atmosphere. Kids racing their bikes up and down the street, interesting arty folk making their colorful way to work or the University and neighbors chatting over the fence like generations gone by, make for a secure and highly sought after environment.
Access to the Peninsula is a breeze. Right on your doorstep, along with the railway line you’ll find the main freeway taking you to Town and the popular V&A Waterfront in a matter of minutes. Bus stops line the main road taking children to schools and the hop on hop off lifestyle that speaks of ease and convenience makes for a very appealing area to live in.
World famous Groote Schuur Hospital is your neighbor as is a hockey and soccer stadium that sees their fair share of incredible performances both locally and internationally.
On the outskirts of the Southern Suburbs is the quiet leafy suburb of Pinelands. Situated within a 10 minute drive of the city centre Pinelands offers very reasonable residential values. There are many restaurants, and shopping facilities in close proximity, with the recent development of Grand West Casino just around the corner.
In the early seventies, Pinelands was a sleepy family suburb with spectacular views of the mountain, a very tight knit community on property that was expansive and an architectural style unique to the area (both the thatch and steep shingle look). While the community values and feel remain strong in Pinelands, the once sleepy ‘burb’ has been transformed into an up to date reflection on just how stylish the Cape has become.
What makes property for sale a draw card for homeowners is that Pinelands is almost self sufficient from the rest of Cape Town. In that literally everything is right on its doorstep and connection to the rest of the Cape to the South is via a main artery road (close to N1 and N2) almost like a drawbridge crossing to a castle.
The leafy wide streets and more parks in a square kilometer than probably anywhere else in Cape Town – will offer a retreat for buyers keen on putting down roots and never leaving. Generations have lived in the area and you’ll find that grans and gramps, aunts, uncles, mom and dads have passed through the doors of the red, green and blue schools.
Visually, the area once a farm, is famous for its towering pine trees that have stood proud in the face of the Capes famous storms. Close to Cape Town International airport but far enough not to feel like planes are landing in your kitchen, property in Pinelands is a keen purchase as it’s close to the hub of city life yet far enough away to feel slightly removed from the rush.
Tennis, lawn bowls, hockey and cricket clubs are hugely popular, while a retirement home makes an ideal rest stop in your golden years.
Kirstenhof makes up part of the Southern Suburbs and is adjacent to Tokai, with shopping centres, schools and 2 golf courses in close proximity. Kirstenhof is a very popular area for young families and offers great value for money in the Southern Suburbs.
This popular suburb is just waiting for you to move in. It’s that un-fussed, vibrant area yet with a country feel that will make you feel right at home from day one. Bordered by Tokai and Steenberg property for sale in this neighbourhood is often a high commodity, with prospective homeowners wanting a slice of Cape suburbia that is accessible to the rest of the Peninsula, a long term sound investment and suitable to their pocket.
As is the case with many property opportunities in the Southern Suburbs, this area was once part of a much larger farmstead Kirstenhof. Sub-divided over time making the transformation from farmlands to suburbia an attractive option for investors, no time was wasted in laying claim to property on the market. What continues to make Kirstenhof a winner are the attractive preserved green belts that make waking the dogs and get out and about with the family a real plus.
Many homes have naturally become modernized over the years while others have retained their neat picket fence appearance. The nearby Westlake, Blue Route and Steenberg retail centres make for an exceptionally easy and uncomplicated lifestyle and the high standards of the gated communities have certainly been a draw card for this area. A more modern and upmarket feel puts modern day Kirstenhof as a clear front runner.
Luxury accommodation and fine restaurants are common place as Kirstenhof sits snugly within easy reach of Cape Town attractions. Schools, sporting facilities, medical care, cinemas and community amenities are among the best and are a breeze to access. As for the mountain views that form a semi-circle around the area and the choice of wine estates and the finest the Cape has to offer, this suburb will bring the comfort and style you are looking for.
Bergvliet is an older established part of the Southern Suburbs and is adjacent to Constantia. Bergvliet offers the convenience of good schools, Constantia village & Bergvliet Shopping Centres all in close proximity; and offers great value for money with many large older homes situated on notable stands.
Bergvliet means ‘mountain streamlet’ in Afrikaans and was so termed for the original homestead, a pristine example of Cape Dutch architecture still around today that housed a natural pond on the property.
Leafy streets are lined with comfortable, settled properties with beautiful gardens and views across the valley to the Table Mountain Range. Bordered by upmarket Tokai and exclusive Constantia, property for sale in Bergvliet is a sound option and certainly a lifestyle choice for generations.
For families keen to remain in a suburb while their children are educated, this area makes perfect sense. While housing prices have significantly risen the lure of accessing top schools in the area or in the areas flanked by Bergvliet is certainly a serious consideration.
A peaceful country-like atmosphere, far from the touristy Cape, makes Bergvliet a top choice amongst homeowners who want to access the buzz but at the end of the day return to their private enclave and a more sedate lifestyle.
Quick access to beaches and the City are a breeze and the surrounding infrastructure from top shopping centres, the rail link afford a un-fussed option to those wishing to commute no further than an approximate 10km radius. Everything is on tap, nearby and community spirited.
Sporting facilities, parks, an Open Air theatre, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, galleries, office parks, bird sanctuary, forest walks, markets and fine dining all make up a wonderful package that will entice those keen in putting down roots in an established suburb.
Lakeside is nestled against the mountain on the border of the Southern Suburbs. The area offers close proximity to Westlake Golf Course, and easy access to Boyes Drive with Muizenberg, Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek all within 15 minutes drive. Lakeside offers good value with smaller homes at the foot of the mountain and larger exclusive properties in elevated positions on the mountain side enjoying views across the Constantia Valley & False Bay.
Interestingly enough, for a suburb that sits plum in the middle of all the action in terms of accessing some of the Capes top beaches and attractions, Lakeside manages to offer homeowners an uncomplicated lifestyle choice of leafy streets and kids kicking soccer balls. It’s very calm and peaceful and yet so ideally positioned should one wish to join the hustle and bustle.
Bordered by Muizenberg and Westlake, with the towering Steenberg Mountain as a backdrop views, particularly those closer to Boyes Drive are breathtaking both by day, across to the Hottentot Holland mountains and especially by night as the Peninisula lights up like a fairyland.
It’s not surprising then that holidaymakers keenly flock to this area in search of either a holiday home or rentals on a seasonal basis. Property for sale in Lakeside remains fluid as it caters for a wide range of income levels, which is then complimented by a diverse community mix.
One of the Capes most memorable bakeries used to reside in Lakeside and the smell of fresh bread was intoxicating. So its closure was met with disappointment until a super retail village emerged from the dust of the recent renovation and some of SA’s top stores moved in offering easy access to the public and property owners.
Homeowners are often creative and arty or keen on the outdoors, making for a very chilled and slow existence. Not much is rushed and a friendly chat at the store or over the wall to ones neighbour the order of the day.
Ndabeni is one of the Industrial and commercial hubs of Cape Town centrally located to Cape Town International Airport and 15 minutes from Cape Town’s City centre.
Home to light industries, this area of Cape Town is the centre of the fashion and clothing industry. Perfectly situated between the airport and the fashion houses located in town, as well as making factory workers lives easier with the close proximity and the related commute from their homes to work, Ndabeni is a rapidly developing expansion of industrial CapeTown.
Not only home to fashion - property for sale has been earmarked over time by courier, construction, computer, electrical and car hire companies; as well as the film industry and sales and marketing organisations to name but a few. Warehouse space is an attractive option as is rail service and associated links allowing for dispatch convenience.
Ndabeni not only offers commercial and industrial property for sale but residential property many of which are reminiscent of the traditional Cape cottage style offering first time homeowners and value seekers the opportunity to enter a competitive market. Some homes on offer still boast expansive spaces and certainly offer development opportunities.
Ndabeni has a chequered past of area segregation, upheavals and even bubonic plague. Yet the long term vision for the area as a development centric slice of the Peninsula has meant that both locals and outside investors have come to recognised the strategic importance and economic value of this once challenging suburb.
While the hustle and bustle of this area does govern it is also remarkably situated plum in the middle of a beautiful landscape. To the one side Table Mountain dominates. On the other the Hottentot Hollands guard the entrance to the Karoo and with magnificent shorelines making up the circle, Ndabeni is the cog in a very big and spectacular wheel.
A common sign in Westlake would read – ‘Prime office space for sale and to let in newly built office precinct Westlake Business Park and Steenberg Office Park’. Considered development, some with highly efficient environmental controls, are the calling cards of this suburb for 2012 and beyond.
To be fair however it would be remiss not to mention that property for sale is not only commercially driven but a wonderful community resides in this nestled part of the Cape that offers a mixed development of high and low residential. It’s protected in some respects from the weather and has a respite from the wind as it cozies up the the Steenberg mountain range.
Bordered by Lakeside, Kirstenhof and the up market Steenberg Golf Estate, Westlake is a property haven for those keen to put down family roots and really connect to long term lifestyles. Ideally situated near wine estates, top schools and amenities from vast shopping malls to tucked away treasures it’s all about convenience and accessibility.
Quiet tree-lined streets, a myriad of different architectural styles that compliment the area, green spaces for walking dogs or kicking a ball make for a neighborhood that offers growth for ones investment as well as security in knowing that one has purchased a perfect fit property.
The community spirit is centered around the golf course (developed in 1932 and a bastion amongst the golfing community), churches, markets and service industries and welcomes those new to the area in a free-spirited and open manner. Used to the easy access it offers to beaches and the Capes best attractions, smaller guest accommodation has sprung up over the years.
Hiking and mountain bike trails, access to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Silvermine Nature Reserve, craft markets, gorgeous restaurants, wine routes and the Cape’s top beaches are all on tap.
Mowbray is a conveniently situated close to the N2 just 10 minutes from Cape Town CBD and Cape Town International Airport.
The suburbs of Rosebank and Observatory border Mowbray while Devil’s Peak crowns the area on the slopes of Table Mountain. A natural junction is formed between suburbia and the neck to the city bowl making for a pleasant neighborhood with property for sale maximized by those seeking to buy into the student culture of the surrounding University of Cape Town.
A fresh, vibrant lifestyle is offered as families reside next to golden oldies and students both local and international keen on experiencing academia and campus culture. Well connected by road but also rail as the local railway station offers an easy commute into town or in the opposite direction to the beaches of Muizenberg, Kalk Bay and Simonstown. Taxis and buses are abundant and is the most common form of transport for young and old.
Chic property with well preserved examples of Victorian architecture adjacent to traditional Cape cottages makes for a unique neck of the woods. Trendy restaurants, funky shops and an air of development are akin to Mowbray. The student folk love the relaxed approach to eateries and pavement-life on hot summer evenings brings a vibe all of its own.
Sporting facilities from a golf course, to hockey, squash, cricket and rugby facilities all make for an easily chartered and no fuss lifestyle. Groote Schuur hospital is but a stone's throw away and Observatory with their arty scene a delight.
The famous landmark, Mostert’s Mill is the only fine example of living heritage and volunteer millers still operate the mill making it a draw card with visitors and locals alike. The mountain is your backdrop from every angle and Rhodes Memorial stands proud as a testament to Cecil John Rhodes and the history that brings.
