The City Bowl of Cape Town is a highly sought after residential suburb. It comes with all the status and acclaim through years of building a reputation of exclusivity.
The languorous lifestyle has a lot of its origin in suburbs like Vredehoek where apartments are possibly more dominant than freehold homes. The property values in Vredehoek are however not as sedate as the lifestyle and this is due to what the properties have to offer in terms of views, architecture their breath taking backdrop of Devil’s Peak and the views of the South Atlantic Ocean and of course Table Mountain.
Vredehoek competes with Camps Bay and Clifton for a place in the market with the benefit of a slightly more affordable price range.
The definition affordable is also relative, as there are apartments that fall within the prestigious segment and cater for the well-heeled living the executive lifestyle. These apartments come with all the creature comforts of a freestanding home.
Many of the apartments are for many families that idyllic second holiday home with the benefit of security in unused periods and their value will continue to escalate as the suburbs properties are and will remain in high demand.
Freehold homes are a mixed architectural treasure-trove, with Cape Dutch, Colonial and contemporary designs to choose from.
The other feature that sets the standard for demand is the prime location of Vredehoek as it is in the City Bowl almost eliminating the need for a car as commercial hubs in the CBD are minutes away.
