Somerset West is a large municipality with numerous suburbs. Set in the timeless Cape Winelands with the backdrop of the Hottentots Holland Mountains is the perfect canvas for any of the suburbs.
The architecture of homes in the suburb and surrounding suburbs draw a lot of inspiration from the Wine Estate homes which are Cape Dutch and glamorous, and the architectural style is taken to another level in modern yet timeless aesthetically appealing architecture. Apartments are modern and reflect the younger professional generations needs and influence on the suburbs age demographic.
Glamour comes with a price which is not abnormal for a suburb like Croydon. The suburb is for the well-heeled and young of mind homeowners. Tree-lined streets and landscaped gardens set the tone for the modern architecture of freehold homes, apartment complexes and townhouse complexes.
There are vacant stands available in the suburb which allows one to design and build a home fit for your lifestyle and with fittings that complement your style and status. These stands are relatively affordable when compared to the sales value of purchasing an existing home.
The suburb attracts all ages to take up residence here because it is a tranquil suburb that is close to all the major roads, highways, malls and schools. The major roads also offer easy access to all the industrial and commercial nodes.
Schools in and near to the suburb are Somerset West Private School, Helderberg Primary School, Helderberg High School and Somerset College.
Malls catering for retail and commercial entertainment needs are Somerset Mall, Waterstone Shopping Mall and Zevenwacht Shopping Mall.
There are a few tourist events that are found nowhere else in the country like the Strawberry Festival and the street lights lining the main road in Somerset West.
