Below the slopes of Devil’s Peak, between Vredehoek and the Table Mountain Nature Reserve lies the suburb of Devil’s Peak boasting superb views over the city and Table Bay.
The suburb’s backdrop and namesake, Devil’s Peak forms a part of the mountainous backdrop to the city, and thus residents often enjoy a hike up to the summit when the weather permits it. For those looking for an easier hike, there are plenty of hiking trails lower down on the slopes.
Residents in Devil’s Peak enjoy the dramatic backdrop of the peak which starts from Rhodes Drive at the top of Observatory, gently ascending from Groote Schuur Hospital - past the wildlife, and the old blockhouse.
Living in Devil’s Peak might feel world’s away from the rest of the city but it enjoys easy access to all the major routes and amenities you might need. Shopping centres like Gardens Shopping Centre is close by and has everything you could need for a quick shop and bite to eat.
This is the only suburb not zoned for flats, townhouses, or multi-dwelling units, and as such smaller homes are found in this small enclave. Zealously protective of the area, property owners believe that additional development will only dull the natural beauty of the area and its exclusivity.
This makes property in Devil’s Peak a highly sought-after investment with property investors and discerning home buyers.
