When one is confronted with a town that has nostalgia originating from a rich historical background then it may be a fair assumption to make that the suburb would have some status or standing. When a suburb fulfils all these criteria it would be wise to consider such a suburb as an investment. Many of the towns or suburbs in the False Bay Peninsula conform to these criteria and more so Scarborough. Quaint views of fishing trawlers moored in the small harbour speaks of that very specific resort laid back lifestyle. Three local restaurants are attracting scores of “foodies” thus putting the already highly sought after town on the map.Scarborough is a prestigious coastal resort type town for those who enjoy or love being in the nature and those who prefer the serenity that comes for a more secluded or private country lifestyle. Scarborough is not about a prime location unless if the panoramic views over False Bay is in the wish list. Homes situated higher on the hills are of course slightly pricier which is understandable considering construction costs.The other major appeal for property in Scarborough is from the second holiday home market as property values are not as high as other more mainstream prestigious suburbs like Clifton.Scarborough is still very much in a developmental stage and this is affirmed by the number of vacant stands available in the market and it must be said at reasonable prices.There are of course the die-hard types who will happily forgo the convenience of living in town for the pleasures of the scenery and tranquillity of Scarborough and travel, along some very scenic routes, to attend schools or travel to the office.Only minutes away from Simon’s Town and Muizenberg means the remote location is only by tranquillity and surroundings. There are schools and malls nearby catering for these essential services. Take a tour of the homes in Scarborough False Bay, Cape Peninsula via the Myroof web-site.
