Buyers love estate homes in Cape Town’s idyllic Noordhoek

23 Jul 2019

Often described as one of Cape Town’s best-kept secrets, the coastal suburb of Noordhoek is also one of the fastest growing areas in South Africa.

Set on a 22 098sqm stand in De Goede Hoop in Noordhoek, Cape Town, this five bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom manor is on the market for R39 million - click here to view.

Not only does it offer unrivalled beauty that includes one of the longest stretches of beaches in the city, but it also boasts several luxury estates with a premium lifestyle offering, says Shelly Keys, Pam Golding Properties area manager for the South Peninsula.

While it is known for its strong sense of community and laidback lifestyle, Noordhoek is also recognised as one of the most popular suburbs for high-net-worth buyers. According to the World Wealth report 2018, Noordhoek has shown considerable square metre price growth in the past ten years, attracting buyers with net assets of US$10 million or more. With its prime location at the foot of Chapman’s Peak with Table Mountain National Park as a backdrop, Noordhoek’s estates offer an appealing combination of luxury and country living.

As such, homes in estates such as De Goede Hoop seldom come onto the market, and half of the homeowners on this equestrian estate have had their properties for 11 years or more.

This luxurious Cape vernacular-style home in De Goede Hoop estate in Noordhoek, Cape Town, has five bedrooms and bathrooms, and much more. It is on the market for R39.5 million - click here to view.

“De Goede Hoop is highly sought after because of its equestrian lifestyle, large plot sizes of between two and five acres, and excellent security. It is also well located, with the Noordhoek Farm Village and Avondrust Common on its doorstep. Cape Town is a scenic drive away via Chapman’s Peak or Silvermine. Noordhoek Beach is one of the Cape’s most pristine coastal areas, popular with horse riders and families,” say Hayley James and Jo-Ann Steyn, Pam Golding Properties agents for the area.

Pam Golding Properties is marketing a classic equestrian homestead in the estate for R39 million. Set over an expansive 22 098sqm erf, this spectacular manor-style home with five bedrooms also offers a private three bedroom cottage and an immaculate stable block. This is a family home, and the clever use of space creates an inviting, relaxed environment. Interesting features include a double landing with an informal reading area, bespoke wallpaper details, loft enclaves in two of the bedrooms and wooden floors in several rooms throughout the house. “Reminiscent of a Cotswold manor, this home enjoys a prime position on the estate. Set at the end of a sloping driveway, it offers tranquillity, space and privacy,” says James.

This renovated home in Lake Michelle Security and Eco Estate in Noordhoek, Cape Town, has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and beautiful lake views. It is on the market for R6.39 million - click here to view.

Another listing here is a R39.5 million Cape Vernacular-style home. As with most of the properties at De Goede Hoop, this five bedroom house also offers a two bedroom cottage as well as a self-contained flatlet. The main house as well as the two additional living spaces are beautifully appointed, with great attention to detail. The main house and adjacent cottage are both light and airy, making one feel part of the wooded surroundings. The homestead has a rose garden patio, and opens up onto a botanical garden with extensive lawns, established trees and a peaceful gazebo. Paved pathways outline the dam and perimeter of the garden, providing ample space for children to play and explore. All five of the bedrooms are upstairs, making this an ideal home for a growing family, with children of various ages. The cottage would work as a chic student pad.

“The demand for homes in this exclusive estate is considerable, and we recently sold a five bedroom property set on 2ha for a record price, and within record time,” says James. The home has five en-suite bedrooms, an arched threshold with solid wood and glass doors, as well double-volume ceilings. The expansive property also includes two discreet cottages, the paddocks and wooden stables, a vegetable garden as well as vineyards and a dam.

This three bedroom, three bathroom home in Harmony Estate in Noordhoek, Cape Town, has a fireplace, indoor braai area, and more. It is on the market for R4.295 million - click here to view.

Set up high in Noordhoek, Zilvermyn Estate enjoys a convenient location with easy access to Ou Kaapse Weg. Zilvermyn, which backs onto the mountain, offers large, luxurious homes ideal for families, especially those with children attending nearby schools such as Reddam. The estate’s tennis court is available for all residents to enjoy.

Lake Michelle is a highly sought-after eco-estate in Noordhoek, bordered by wetlands with water and mountain views. Residents enjoy peace of mind, while living in one of the most beautiful settings in the South Peninsula. A 22ha lake is the centrepiece of the estate, and many of the homes, such as the one recently listed by Pam Golding Properties’ for R6.39 million, have private jetties leading to the lake from their gardens. This home also has a wooden deck with a jacuzzi, creating the ideal entertainment spot with uninterrupted lake views. There are also communal jetties that allow all residents access to the swimming, fishing and other water activities that take place on the lake. The homes have been designed to blend in with the natural environment, and residents share the indigenous vegetation with a host of bird and animal species who frequent the lake and several ponds on the estate.

“Noordhoek is especially attractive to buyers relocating from Gauteng and other parts of the country, or moving to the Cape from overseas. While still close to Cape Town, Noordhoek offers the space and tranquillity one would usually expect when living in the country. The generously-sized properties offer considerable value for money if one considers the lifestyle offering that Noordhoek provides. Its estates have mastered the art of balancing lifestyle and security, without compromising the ‘village’ feel that makes Noordhoek unique,” adds Keys.
