Now is the time to invest in Cape Town’s prestigious Bishopscourt

10 Jul 2019

Bishopscourt, one of Cape Town’s most exclusive suburbs, is known for being home to diplomats, ambassadors and even Archbishops who are drawn to its private, expansive homes with breathtaking mountain views. It was also where former President Nelson Mandela spent his first night as a free man, staying with the then Archbishop Desmond Tutu and wife Leah after his release from prison in 1990.

This luxurious villa in Bishopscourt, Cape Town, has four bedrooms and bathrooms, large reception and living areas, a pool and more. It is selling for R23 million - click here to view.

Myrna Duveen, Pam Golding Properties area specialist for Bishopscourt, and intern Louise Sivertsen, have already concluded eight sales here in the past year (April 2018 to April 2019), ranging from R7.8 million to R41.3 million.

Duveen says that while the suburb has some of the most valuable real estate in the country, buyers know that the homes are spacious, with features that combine both luxury and convenience with spellbinding views.

However, few know that Bishopscourt has its very own vineyard, ensconced on the grounds of one of the luxury properties currently being marketed by Pam Golding Properties. The home in Canterbury Drive, set on 6 222sqms, is much like a fine wine - filled with nuances that make it a standout property in this illustrious area, says Duveen. Not only does this property boast Bishopscourt’s only vineyard, but it offers penthouse living and one of the most sought-after views in the Southern Suburbs.

In keeping with the vinicultural tone of the property, the house has its own wine cellar and cold room. There is also a fully-kitted gym. It is on the market for R29 million.

Security is paramount, and not only do almost all of the homes have state-of-the-art CCTV cameras and surveillance, but there are dedicated patrol cars and a security team using a license-recognition system and 24-hour offsite surveillance to ensure residents’ safety.

“The slowdown in house price growth being seen around the Western Cape, means that it is a good time to buy a gem of a home in this prestigious suburb,” says Duveen.
