The upmarket Higgovale, situated on slopes of Table Mountain, is one of the suburbs of Cape Town that enjoys some of the most spectacular views in the city from the breathtaking properties dotted along the streets that run at tangents to another in a bid to reach higher and higher.
The views from the sought-after suburb that lies between Oranjezicht and Tamboerskloof are breathtaking panoramas over central Cape Town down to the glittering Atlantic Ocean. The steep roads makes finding your way through this green and leafy suburb something of an adventure - particularly when meeting the city council garbage truck on its way down whilst you’re on your way up a particularly narrow incline.
Higgovale properties provide luxury and convenience, with Cape Town city centre and the V & A Waterfront - with its functioning harbour and mix of shops, cinemas and restaurants - just minutes away.
Along Kloof Nek Street, it's also just minutes to the Table Mountain cableway and the start of many popular walks on the mountain, the sheltered beach at Clifton which is always popular for sunbathing and Camps Bay with its long strip of beach and popular restaurants.
Perched high above central Cape Town means that residents can easily access all the amenities associated with a modern, cosmopolitan city. This includes several good private hospitals, as well as Cape Town's well-stocked public library, museums, International Convention Center, and public transportation hubs.
Higgovale property is sought after for good reason. This green suburb includes large, tasteful homes and gardens, many with spectacular views of Table Bay and the surrounding mountains. Higgovale is also largely protected from the winds which blast Cape Town in the summer months.
The median price of a Freehold property is currently approximately R9 500 000 and R7 430 000 for Sectional title properties. (June 2021 figures).
