As well as being one of its oldest suburbs, Constantia
is arguably the greenest area in Cape Town
. It lies in the lush Constantia
Valley, between the southern suburb of Wynberg and the Table Mountain National Park, and is home to several magnificent, centuries-old vineyards. Constantia property
includes historic homes with extensive gardens. Many Constantia houses
feature well-preserved Baroque or Cape Dutch architecture, with views onto rolling vineyards and densely forested mountainside. Constantia home
owners can still walk their dogs or ride horses in country lanes not much different from those of a century ago. Claremont
lies in the heart of Cape Town’s
southern suburbs. It has experienced a significant property boom in recent years, with developers trying to keep up with the demands of a growing and discriminating population, and with major businesses moving into newly-built, plush office spaces. Nevertheless, Claremont hasn’t given up the pockets of peace and quiet that its residents treasure. Claremont property
options range from affordable small homes and apartments for first-time buyers to established family homes with gardens and pools. Upper Claremont
also includes a fair share of luxury properties, with sprawling grounds, tree-lined avenues and high security. Claremont properties
are an excellent investment, with the suburb continuing to welcome new development and with no sign that the popularity of the area is going to diminish.
