De Waterkant in the Cape Town City Bowl is some of Cape Town’s prime real estate. The suburb was established in the 1700’s with a lot of architecture that dates back to Cape Dutch rule and later Georgian architecture from British rule. There is an eastern architectural cue too with properties sporting full length verandas typical of India architecture.
