City Bowl at a glance

The City Bowl neighbourhood, in the home of the world-famous Table Mountain, offers residential and commercial properties for sale or rent across a wide audience.

The central business district appeals to property investors buying high-rise contemporary apartments and older art deco buildings. The younger, more practical, buyers often prefer the industrial loft or studio apartments in the CBD or, a flat in the bohemian, yet more affordable, Woodstock.

Today’s young professionals prefer to live, work, and play without a long commute anywhere. Those wanting more space look towards the more expansive houses and apartments in tree-lined Tamboerskloof, classy Oranjezicht, Higgovale, Vredehoek and Gardens neighbourhoods. Bo-Kaap, at the foot of Signal Hill, boasts colourful, cobble-stone-lined houses that often feature on Capetonian postcards.

Some popular estate properties include La Montagne in Oranjezicht, Devil’s Peak Estate and St John’s Estate in Higgovale; and don’t forget the upmarket Higgo Road in the Gardens.

Netcare Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital is nearby for medical needs. Tamboerskloof Primary School and St.Cyprian’s School service the resident’s educational needs.

Other suburbs included in the City Bowl are De Waterkant, Schotsche Kloof, Zonnebloem, District Six, Walmer Estate and University Estate.

Trendy bars and nightclubs, art galleries, theatres are abound – here life, work and play truly melt into one.
