I want to invest in… Hout Bay
Zen aesthetic meets natural beauty in this Hout Bay home: turn off the main road into Riverside Terrace and the serene feeling of the estate is tangible. Ponds filled with koi almost surround the property; the grounds lead you down to the river where a boardwalk takes you to the opposite (landscaped) bank – take a picnic to enjoy on the lawns. Vertical gardens, a ‘fern-atrium’ and a walking trail surrounded by palms add to the appeal. Glass is used extensively in the design by Shaun Adendorff of Rennie Scurr Adendorff, adding to the indoor-outdoor flow, while marble, kiaat and Caesarstone are also used in the finishes, countertops and flooring. The suspended staircase is a definite focal point. Hout Bay itself is attracting investors for its ease of location – the Southern Suburbs on one side and the Atlantic Seaboard and CBD on the other. You’ll also find great value compared with the neighbouring suburb of Constantia, particularly for executive rentals, a community feel (join Hout Bay Organised on Facebook for online insider info) and proximity to Hout Bay International School and some excellent restaurants (Kitima, Massimo’s, Tinstwalo Atlantic, Quentin at Oakhurst). This contemporary home is on the market through Seeff Properties for R35 million, web reference 421627.
