Panorama is a suburb of the Parow municipality located north of the Cape Town CBD. Parow was the point of origin of the suburb which was earmarked as land for cattle farming.
The need for residential property increased and suburbs were being developed.
Today Panorama is a modern middle to high income group suburb located at the foot of the Tygerberg Hills just south of Plattekloof.
Property close to the then newly developed Canal Walk received a welcome boost in property values as the tourist amenity attracted tourist and shoppers to the suburb.
The mixed property use of the suburb comprises freehold homes, clusters and sectional-title townhouses with an architecture that is modern and conventional.
The suburb is in a prime location with some properties offering views of Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront.
Amenities like schools, malls, industrial and commercial hubs are conveniently close.
The benefit of homes in the suburb is that there are opportunities for commercial use in the form of guest houses as the secondary use of coastal towns is holiday destinations.
For this reason buy-to-let investment is the other investment option for property in the suburb with high income from rental and an equally high demand for rental property within the suburb mostly for the good reputation of the suburb.
The schools in and near to the suburb are equally sought after with schools like Hoerskool Tygerberg very popular for the academic achievements of its students.
Homes in the suburb serve well as holiday homes as the suburb is close to Table Bay and Bloubergstrand with the advantage of being close to the Western Cape Wine Routes.
For permanent residents places like the Tygerberg Nature Reserve offer things like bird watching, small mammals, indigenous vegetation, hiking and picnics with manicured grass areas.
Parts of the reserve are being restored to preserve the limited natural habitats in the Western Cape.
