About Plattekloof Property
This glorious suburb to the north of Cape Town offers the starkest contrast to many of the city’s northern suburbs. Not just in terms of its beauty, but against most benchmarks which property buyers may care to use when establishing desirability. Its advantages and physical assets have without doubt created enormous demand for properties there. Those simply wishing to make their homes there, or property investors, can rest assured that Plattekloof properties are going to continue to escalate in value. Plattekloof was originally a part of the De Villiers Graaf family Trust. This old and distinguished Cape family headed up by notable grandee Sir De Villiers Graaf, set up the Trust many years ago. When eventually the Trust was broken up, the land came on to the market, which included Plattekloof. It is not invidious to suggest that Plattekloof easily bears comparison with Steenberg, near Constantia and indeed that comparison is frequently made. It is easy to see the reasons - for one the views are spectacular. From Plattekloof one can see Cape Town, the magnificent Table Mountain and the ocean. Many of the homes are imposing and gracious and built within large and secure estates. Inevitably there are wonderful golf courses, similar in design and style to Steenberg’s stunning 40 hectare course. For these reasons many of these homes are regarded as among the most exclusive and desirable properties in the entire Western Cape region. Plattekloof is quite dramatically situated as it has the scenic Tygerburg Hills as a backdrop. Another massive bonus is that the suburb shares not just a border with the renowned de Grendel Wine Estate, but sits cheek by jowl with de Grendel on the same hill. Moreover, de Grendel remains an important stop on the Durbanville Wine Route, making Plattekloof so much more rewarding for those so interested. In any event, wine lover or not, that fact simply adds to the massive appeal to property seekers. All the above contribute to the image of Plattekloof as an enviable place to own property. Tourists to the area know they can access Cape Town very quickly via the superb roads (but strictly avoid the rush hours), and can also relax in the fact that Cape Town International Airport is an easy drive. For beach lovers Blaauwberg is also eminently reachable. Then there is the vibrant business activity centred around Tygervalley which caters for just about every need imaginable. The winelands, the views, the accessibility, the magnificent landscape and the lovely properties make Plattekloof the place to live. What are you waiting for?
