You will be surprised to find a tree-lined, quiet neighbourhood so close to the Cape Town City Centre. Tamboerskloof lies against the slopes of Table Mountain, overlooking the City Bowl,
and it’s close to everything.
The area features from large Victorian-style homes with ‘stoeps’ to art deco apartments, guesthouses, a lively rental market, and Airbnbs. No wonder it draws a variety of young people, families, and travellers.
The beaches of Camps Bay and the Atlantic Seaboard are a
a short hop away. Families with school-going children can choose between the German International School (also accepting non-German-speaking children), Tamboerskloof Primary School, St Cyprians Girls’, Herzlia or Hoërskool Jan van Riebeeck. Just across Kloof Nek, children can also attend Camps Bay High School.
Vehicles are optional in this neighbourhood. Although some areas are steep to walk, many residents walk to the trendy Kloof Street or the CBD and grab a taxi or Uber back up the hill (if you don’t want a work-out). Kloof Street is lively with art, restaurants, and bakeries, antiques and quaint bookstores, cocktail factories, and sidewalk cafés.
The area has easy access to hiking trails on Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, De Waal Park for dog walking, the independent Labia cinema, and even a social tennis club for Wimbledon-wannabes.
The median price of a Freehold property is currently approximately R6 900 000 and R2 400 000 for Sectional title properties. (June 2021 figures).
