Thornton at a glance

A profile of Thornton property from a buyer's perspective, with information on facilities and attractions.

Thornton Property

Nestled between the residential suburbs of Pinelands, Goodwood and Ruyterwacht, and bordered by the industrial and commercial hub of Epping, Thornton is amongst the most affordable and accessible of Cape Town's northern suburbs.

With the bustling Cape Town CBD under 10 minutes away and all the major highways and byways within striking distance of this quiet, unassuming suburban district, residents have a quick commute to the major business and industrial centres of the Mother City.

The Cape Metrorail runs a regular service between Cape Town central and Thornton station. Meanwhile, the municipal bus service that plies a route between the sleepy dormitory suburb and Mowbray provides another affordable public transport option.

Thornton property presents some of the best value investment opportunities in the Cape. Spacious, soundly built, double story family homes are regularly on the market for a competitive price, while well-maintained townhouses in quiet, secure complexes are enormously popular with entry-level buyers. 

Ultra modern, multi-bedroom apartments, with a communal pool, secure off-street parking and sweeping views of Table Mountain and Lions Head are popular and affordable purchasing options.
