About Rondebosch Property
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. Accessibility is perfect as entry to the Southern Suburbs and access to the City but a 10 minute drive. Lying at the slopes of Devils Peak, the area is renowned for its population of lecturers, professors, deans, parliamentarians and even the President who has an estate on the fringes. The railway station is within walking distance and one of the Capes top libraries, located next to the station, offers a welcome respite for those keen to escape into the literary world. Some of the country best schools such as Bishops, Rustenburg Girls, Westerford High School, St Joseph Marist and Oakhurst Girls Primary, to name but a few, offer an exceptional education right on your doorstep. With Newlands rugby and cricket stadiums but a stone’s throw away for eager fans and golf, hockey, swimming, bowls and tennis facilities on demand.
