More than only a seaside life, these are our Sea Point property offerings. Nestled beneath Lion’s Head and with views of Table Mountain, Sea Point was initially only settled as a suburb of Cape Town property area in the nineteenth century. Hard though as it is to believe, until the trolley service was up and running, Sea point was considered too far out for city workers to have to make their way into town every day. Bantry Bay had already been settled a century before, and for very good reason as its original name Botany Bay suggests. What with the almost complete absence of wind and a climate so temperate and mild that the Cape’s first botanical garden was planted here, its distance from the town was not an issue. However, the desirability of the location and of a Fresnaye, a Bantry Bay or a Sea Point property, soon saw the land turned over to human habitation. Sea Point - one of the prime areas for property in South Africa.
Although densely populated in parts, one can’t help but feel that one is living in a medium sized seaside town; in fact, should you take a short walk from the bustling main drag in practically any direction, you will encounter many an old Sea Point property, shaded by a Frangipani tree or blazing with Bougainvillea. Although not everyone can be right on the beach front, almost any Sea Point property will enjoy a fantastic outlook, or will definitely only be within a minutes walk from one. The corniche, or promenade, is broad and a favourite with locals and visitors alike; for jogging, walking, taking in the scenery or enjoying the refreshing sea breeze. Perfectly safe, fastidiously paved and dotted with beautiful lawns, children’s play grounds, tidal pools and a gorgeous Art Deco public swimming pool right on the rocks, this walk is imbued with a unique old world charm. It’s wonderfully well tended and its unbroken length stretches from Cape Town Harbour breakwater, through the Waterfront, Mouille Point, the Green Point property area and all the way to the end of Camps Bay and beyond, encapsulating some dozen odd kilometres of unrivalled scenery. And as Sea Point is north-west facing, sunsets are year round splendours to be savoured daily from either the shore, a veranda or from many an easily accessible scenic mountain aspect.
Whether you’re looking for a Sea Point property close to the beach or as far from the action as possible, there is guaranteed to be just the right domicile for you here, as Sea Point property is highly varied.
