Old Cape Quarter - De Waterkant

De Waterkant

De Waterkant is a trendy and picturesque suburb near the Cape Town city centre. It has a unique European feel to it, thanks to the cobblestone sidewalks, colourful semi-detached cottages and numerous streetside cafés. De Waterkant is a timeless location that offers the best of vintage and modern architecture, as well as a close-knit community atmosphere. 

This chic enclave is also home to popular fashion boutiques, art galleries and niche restaurants. It is the ideal suburb for cultured individuals or couples looking for a vibrant space to call their own, close to the bustling city centre. The leafy streets are pedestrian-friendly and many of the bars, cafés, restaurants, salons and shops are within walking distance.

De Waterkant is popular amongst locals and international visitors who love historical locations with a quaint suburban atmosphere. Property values in Cape Town are known to increase, but none of the suburbs have the potential to inflate like De Waterkant. Here, prices for property have steadily risen at a greater rate than in nearby neighbourhoods, such as Clifton, Camps Bay and Green Point. This makes De Waterkant an excellent investment opportunity.

This beautiful neighbourhood is close to other important locations in the Mother City, including the V&A Waterfront, the Sea Point promenade, the Cape Town Stadium, Green Point Urban Park and Lion’s Head. Residents need not wander far to find what they are looking for, whether it is a shopping experience, a cup of coffee, dynamic health, wellness and fitness studios, renowned jazz bars and cocktail lounges, fine dining restaurants or outdoor activities. De Waterkant is a safe and secure location for homeowners and property investors.

The Old Cape Quarter apartment block is nestled in the city-side of De Waterkant and within the Heritage Protected Overlay Zone (HPOZ) which protects the area's history and ensures remarkable layers of urban architecture and development.

Old Cape Quarter is a green oasis that has been developed around a central piazza with cascading planted terraces. It is the perfect balance between architecture and nature.
