Like many who pay a small fortune to rent a flat in the Cape Town CBD, I often like to imagine what it would be like to live somewhere with an actual garden.
A garden and a sea view, too, would be nice.
If you want both of those, set on a two-acre plot off Boyes Drive, you’re in luck, although you’re going to need a cool R19,95 million to snap up this listing on Property24.
It’s 122 Boyes Drive, to be exact – you can see the driveway that connects the house to the road in the image below:
There may still be a few bargains in the area stretching from Muizenberg through to Simon’s Town, but prime properties in the area have definitely spiked in value over the past decade.
According to the listing, this gem offers a “never to be repeated opportunity”:
This incredible property comprises two erven – each just under an acre in size. Subdivision into two parts is all but done on the bottom erf.
Access from Boyes Drive makes this a once in a lifetime development opportunity. The existing house was built to accommodate an elderly couple in style in a fabulous 1 bed apartment with a self contained apartment on the ground level for live in help.
The configuration is unusual, but the views are breathtaking. Must be seen to be appreciated.
The tour will have to wait, because the best we can do is show you some photos:
That view, though:
There’s something you don’t see every day.
If you buy the place, be sure to post many sunrise photos on social media (#nofilter), just to rub it in.
