Detailed information:

Set in the heart of leafy Bishopscourt, this stunning home has Balinese and Mediterranean accents.
This spacious home is distinctly private, with generous open plan living throughout the ground floor. All rooms opening onto patio, pool and entertainment area.
The views are its main feature, in addition there is a rim flow pool, travertine floors throughout, an out-door entertainment area with beautiful flow from indoors.
The kitchen has marble countertops, a walk in cold room and Braai fireplace. There is under-floor heat-ing in bedrooms, wine cellar, kids playroom, TV room and office/study.


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.

Schools & Universities:

No area in the Cape Peninsula boasts such a great selection of sought after schools, as well as being home to the University of Cape Town.
Prominent Boys-Only schools include Bishops Diocesan College, Rondebosch Boys High School, South African College School (sacs) and Wynberg Boys High School.
Prominent Girls-Only schools include Herschel Girls School, Rustenburg Girls School, Springfield Convent School and Wynberg Girls High School. Co-ed Westerford High School often boasts the highest academic results in both the province and country.
Newlands is also home to the oldest university in South Africa, University of Cape Town (uct).
There are many nursery schools, such as Kildare Nursery, with a selection of prep schools feeding into the high schools, from the age of 5 years old (Grade R).
