Milnerton was established in 1897 on the Table Bay coast of Cape Town. The suburb was in an ideal location to serve as both a holiday destination and a residential suburb of Cape Town servicing the Cape Town harbor and the industrial hubs which were established to service the wine farming and shipping industries.
Milnerton was the first city in South Africa to be laid out by a town planner by the name of Mr. A.J.L Thompson from England. It was his idea to implement the Garden Cities philosophy of town planning which was unique in cities having central public gardens and parks.
The suburb has grown over time and the demand for property has risen due to some re-development work that took place in the marina that came with an exclusivity tag. The lagoon was the perfect backdrop for lifestyle estates to be developed.

Properties in Milnerton serve the dual use of holiday homes and residential property which is a sound investment form a buy-to-let perspective as the suburb is close to Table Bay, the V&A Waterfront, Canal Walk and the tourist amenities which attract tourist almost all year round to Cape Town. The mixed use of property means sectional title townhouses are particularly favored by investors in this market segment. Properly values are driven by demand for the dual use the suburb offers.
