The laid back and relaxed lifestyle of Cape Town is not

solely for those residing on the beachfront. The greater Cape Town is a culture

of unhurried approaches to most things.

That is also where things change for the general property

market. Suburbs located in the north of Cape Town are middle to exclusive

suburbs with a wide range of reasons for the appeal these suburbs hold in terms

of the property market.

Bellville and its many suburbs appeal to the middle to

higher income groups for the status of the suburbs, the architecture and

convenience in categories like proximity to schools and the office.

Clusters of exclusive suburbs have a cross pollination

effect on one another like Stellenberg, Stellenridge or Plattekloof.

Stellenridge falls within the exclusive range of properties

thus putting the suburb in a high demand category. The relatively young age of

the suburb is reflected in the architectural designs which tend to be more

contemporary modern with some of the more conventional designs dating back to

the founding period of the suburb.

Homes in the suburb are mostly free standing interspersed

with a few townhouse complexes and some new developments of apartments and

retirement homes.

Stellenridge is then by the definition of property usage

very much family oriented. This fact is also affirmed by the large number of

reputable schools servicing the suburb such as Stellenberg High School, Gene

Louw Primary School, Fairmont High School and Eversdal Primary School.

The central or prime location of Stellenridge comes to the

fore when traveling to industrial or commercial hubs of which commercial hubs

are Stikland Industrial, Brackenfell Industrial and Bellville South Industrial.

When many commercial companies moved from the Cape Town CBD

the trend was to move to suburbs such as Tyger Valley, Durbanville and other

nearby suburbs. This has reduced travel time and expenses drastically and the

convenience of avoiding congested freeways is of a major benefit.

Stellenridge will not be a full-fledged suburb with retail

and entertainment, here is a list of some of the nearby malls; Tyger Valley

Centre, Glengarry Shopping Centre and Willowbridge Shopping Centre.
