Constantia is prestigious suburb in the northern region of Cape Town. The suburb is one of the oldest suburbs of Cape Town and has much of its prestige derived from the wine estates and the existing Constantia wine estate.

Constantia is a purely residential suburb and a tranquil serene lifestyle is evident from the tree lined streets with old well-established oak trees and stately gardens amidst estate like grounds.
The architecture in the suburb is somewhat historic and at the same time also modern contemporary. A vast selection of properties on the market currently is period architectural homes like Cape Dutch, classic Colonial, French Cottage, Baroque and many more to choose from.
The backdrop of the Constantiaberg Mountains adds to the nostalgia of the suburb as a wine producing “grand dame”.
