Once a part of the iconic District Six, Walmer Estate, is a historic neighbourhood that has deep roots in the story of the community that lived here.
Lying on the slopes of Devil’s Peak and overlooking the harbour, the suburb has grown in popularity over the last couple of years due to the value for money that can be found here as well as the short commute to those working in the City Bowl.
The area is not overrun with commercial activities, and still has a sense of community and welcoming nature. Its ideal location means that all amenities are in easy reach in neighbouring suburbs like Woodstock, Zonnebloem, and the City Bowl.
Lion's Head, Signal Hill, Devil's Peak, and Table Mountain all keep a watch over Walmer Estate in quiet majesty. And with these incredible natural landmarks on your doorstep, many residents enjoy the various hiking and cycling trails up and around these mountains, along with viewing points that promise spectacular views of the city and the ocean.
Properties in Walmer Estate are varied - from large houses to more compact apartments and semi-detached cottages.
Due to its elevated location, homes in Walmer Estate enjoy beautiful views of both the mountain and the sea. This makes properties favourites among the working professionals, families, and students alike that need to be close to the city but want a village-like atmosphere.
