Our home

Lovely, traditional Cape Victorian colonial style with all mod cons, lovely features (the trickling sound of an indoor fountain provides a calm atmosphere) and antiques in exclusive security village (only four homes). Beautiful mountain views can be enjoyed from the patio over a nice glass of wine. These give a tremendous feeling of space while the pretty garden makes you feel you are in the heart of the country as the area is very peaceful. Guinea fowl and francolin wander about the gardens while owls and other birds can often be seen and heard.
There is a built-in barbecue on the patio as well as another under the trees. A dip in the pool is wonderful for those hotter days.

Property features

Your neighbourhood

Somerset West is only ½ hour away from the centre of Cape Town and is very conveniently situated to the winelands area (Stellenbosch is just 15 minutes away) although there are some beautiful estates in the town itself. There are a number of reputed golf courses a few minutes away away at Erinvale and Strand and a well-equipped gym less than 10 minutes away. The sea at Gordon’s Bay and Strand is also approx 15 minutes away. It is also only 2 minutes drive to town of Somerset West where there are many restaurants of international standing. The town is very popular with visitors from all over the world (many who have a home here for the European winter) who enjoy its beautiful surroundings and ease of access to places of interest without having to be located in the middle of a city.
