Schotschekloof is suburb of the City Bowl in the Western Cape. It is an old and well-established suburb that commands a high degree of demand for the property values and its prime location. Set at the foot of Signal Hill means the views are spectacular over the harbour and surrounding suburbs.
The unique feature of the suburb is the brightly coloured homes which is a tradition which is typical to the Cape Malay culture. Another very unique feature of the suburb is the cobble stone streets which add an aire of romance.
Neighboring the City Bowl means work is within walking distance, as are a number of popular schools like Vista High School, Jan van Riebeeck Primary School and Cape Town High School to mention a few.
At current market values the suburb is till reasonably affordable but this is set to change with the high degree of demand that is driving property values to record heights.
There are many factors which drive this demand and one is the fact that Cape Town is viewed as a tourist destination and with affordable property to be had so close to the major tourist attrcations is just one more factor.
Buy-to-let investors seek out these affordable properties restore and let them as holiday homes with the advantage of Cape Town not being a seasonal destination.
The tourist cultural attrcations in the suburb should not be missed with places like the Bo-Kaap Museum, The Castel and the Two Oceans Aquarium well worth exploring.
The location of the suburb should not be missed when considering the alternative use of property like guest houses which will always be a stable income and investment prospect in destination like Cape Town.
