Bishopscourt

BISHOPSCOURT With its rural ambience, well-kept avenues, large properties – most at least 4000 m2 – and spectacular views – as well as its proximity to both Cape Town’s many amenities and business districts – it is easy to see why Bishopscourt is recognised worldwide as one of Cape Town’s most desirable areas. About 10 km from the city’s CBD, Bishopscourt is known for its beautifully landscaped, expansive properties and magnificent views. Many of its properties offer views across the Cape Flats and False Bay coast to the Hottentots Holland mountains, while others overlook Kirstenbosch, one of the great botanic gardens...

Claremont

CLAREMONT Less than 20 minutes from Cape Town’s CBD and V&A Waterfront, the Constantia winelands and numerous golf courses, and with Newlands Cricket Ground and Rugby Stadium, as well as top schools such as Bishops, Herschel, Rondebosch, SACS and Westerford – along with the University of Cape Town – right on its doorstep, it’s not surprising that Claremont property has been a popular choice for decades. HISTORY     From the mid 17th century until the mid 19th century, the area now known as Claremont was primarily agricultural. The modern history of Claremont begins around the 1850s, when the village began to grow as the...

Constantia

CONSTANTIA Known internationally as the birthplace of the South African wine industry, Constantia is an area of rolling hills and gentle valleys about 15 km south of Cape Town’s city centre. Indeed, it was Simon van der Stel, Commander and Governor of the Cape from 1679 to 1699, who recognised the area’s potential and established Groot Constantia in 1685. By 1709 it is estimated that he had planted over 70 000 vines and the wines of Constantia had become famous throughout the world. It was van der Stel, and others like him, who started the tradition of gracious country living and the production of fine wines for which Constantia is still justly...

Wynberg

WYNBERG Located some 13 km south of Cape Town, Wynberg was an important stop on the route to Simon’s Town and an important strategic spot during the Napoleonic Wars at the turn of the 19th century. The Wynberg Military Base is the second oldest military establishment in South Africa. The village of Wynberg grew up around the military base, and by the mid-19th century Wynberg was a popular holiday destination for British officials on leave and a sought-after location for the country villas of well-to-do Capetonians. Residential growth continued after the suburban railway line was extended to Wynberg in 1864, and within a few years, the area was home...
