Just 20 minutes from the airport brings you to the leafy suburb of Gardens, located in the City Bowl just under Table Mountain, this is a historic and vibrant neighbourhood. Buzzing and friendly Kloof Street is on your doorstep, famous for its numerous chic restaurants, hotels, and boutique shops as well as being the hub for the city’s creative industry.

The 2 storey clapboard covered cottage is one of many Victorian properties on this historic, jacaranda lined street. It sits in a tranquil haven, trees surround the deck, perfect to unwind and reflect on the sights of Cape Town whilst gazing up at Table Mountain.

Opening the front door of this Cape Cod style cottage you step into the shuttered hallway. The ground floor is decorated throughout in this calming blue with white accents. The flooring moves from these classic Victorian tiles to dramatic dark wood, warm bamboo and tropical sea grass.

In the airy lounge, doors open onto the wrap around deck and the soft leather sofas invite you to put your feet up and just relax. For a quiet evening in, a wide screen TV, cable and a DVD player give you numerous options.

To the rear of the cottage you find the open plan kitchen and dining room. The furnishings are dark wood with oriental touches and a decadent chandelier. Patio doors surround the space and lead you onto wrap round deck where a full security and beam system gives peace of mind.

The kitchen is fully fitted & kitted, so whether it’s a dinner party, take away or a snack you can make yourself at home. Forget the mess and washing up, just close the doors around the stove and let the dishwasher take care of the rest.
