Lying between the popular suburbs of Oranjezicht and Tamboerskloof, Gardens is a respite from the hustle and bustle of the busy city centre just a stone’s throw away from its calm, leafy homes.
Just south of the city centre, the neighbourhood sits on the slopes above Cape Town City Bowl and is considered by many as the hub for the Cape Town creative industry. The affluent neighbourhood is home to numerous chic restaurants, hotels, and boutique shops.
Running through the heart of the suburb is the world-renowned Kloof street. Here you will find some of the neighbourhood’s - and city’s - best restaurants. Enjoy incredible views of Table Mountain or head to one of the roof-top bars to take in the city landscape from above.
Gardens is perfectly situated to quickly access the popular Atlantic beaches across Kloof Nek as well as the Table Mountain cableway and various other highlights like the V&A Waterfront, the Castle of Good Hope, and Cape Town’s various museums and galleries.
Properties here - those that haven’t been subdivided or rezoned into business residences - have an air of colonial charm about them and some of them are authentic mansions.
