Fishhoek in 1917 was earmarked as a seaside residential resort as quoted in the then weekly paper The Cape where town planning began with the layout of roads, subdividing the then Fishhoek Estate.
The backdrop of the Kalk Bay Mountain slopes offers the ideal vantage point overlooking False Bay and the Silvermine Valley with wetlands.
Clovelly was a suburb of Fishhoek which developed alongside Fishhoek and still has that same residential seaside resort atmosphere with some changes in property, their usage and most importantly their value.
The rustic earthy Fynbos setting of Clovelly is highly appealing and tranquil. Today Clovelly is a fully fledge suburb with all the important amenities that give a suburb the status as a residential suburb such as nearby schools, malls and in the case of Clovelly, a holiday property market.
For families seeking to own that idyllic second holiday home Clovelly is ideal as the potential is endless with a number of vacant stands available and of course existing homes, cabins and the more upmarket family homes.
This defines Clovelly very much as a middle to upper-class residential suburb and is sought after by residents seeking property in this region which indicates a stable long-term growth market.
The varied architecture caters for the whole market and it may even be a consideration as a retirement home for the well-heeled pensioners.
Clovelly is often overlooked as a holiday destination but for those wanting to avoid the busy peak season holiday congestion Clovelly is ideal with its own white beaches and the major bonus of whale watching in season.
For permanent residents there is access to schools such as Fish Hoek High School, Laerskool Paul Greyling and Bay Primary School.
The list of tourist attractions is endless and will suit the outdoor explorers for birdwatching or hiking or a day on the beach.
For retail needs Clovelly has access to The Zone On Square, Town Square Centre or a short drive to Muizenberg.
