A sub-district of Green Point, De Waterkant is a trendy neighbourhood filled with chic shops and vibey restaurants - the perfect place for residents with equally trendy and vibey tastes in properties.
De Waterkant owes its unique property landscape to its historic roots dating back to the nineteenth century. Architectural styles are a mixture of Gregorian and Cape Dutch, which only adds to the uniqueness of the suburb - with many believing that De Waterkant is the more modern sister to the iconic Bo-Kaap.
De Waterkant is a very walkable area with most properties within easy reach of the Cape Quarter shopping centre, a plethora of gastronomic delights, and every other amenity that its trendy buyers could want and need.
Its quaint cobbled streets and cottages built by the first Malay slaves dating back to the 18th century give the area a village-feel that endures today, despite the injection of a contemporary urban element over recent years with many shiny new developments of residential and office space.
While there are many new developments in the area for buyers looking for a modern apartment, there are also renovated buildings that are now contemporary homes for the vibey community.
Those who are lucky enough to have rooftop terraces enjoy fabulous views over the harbour to the ocean or back over the shoulder of Signal Hill to Table Mountain.
