Set right against the slopes of Table Mountain, Bishopscourt gives new meaning to the term ‘leafy’, which here describes incredibly large and gracious oaks that line most of the quiet streets with their large family residences, high walls, beautifully manicured gardens and stunning views.
Bishopscourt has an absolutely exquisite set-ting. No surprise then that a number of foreign embassies have chosen this suburb as their home and a collection of local and internation-al celebrities too. These are multi-million rand homes but the views alone are worth the price.
Walks along the Liesbeek River, a popular local pastime, will take you past an area of land that has been rehabilitated and trans-formed into a remarkable riverine garden including over 100 indigenous trees. On a clear day there are panoramic views over False Bay, which is close by and offers some wonderfully quaint beaches such as St James and Danger beach, and some wonderful local hikes, including Constantia Nek. Bishopscourt is close to the Constantia Wine Route, Kirstenbosch Gardens and getting to the city centre is a matter of 15 minutes’ drive.
