Rondebosch has the best schools

Category News

Rondebosch has the highest concentration of top schools in the country with no less than 18 (according to Wikipedia). It is also home to the highest concentration of top performing schools when it comes to the annual matric results including Rondebosch Boys, Westerford High, Bishops (Diocesan College), SACS (South African College School) and Rustenburg Girls High School.

Charmaine Scott-Wilson, Seeff's area agent says that all of the schools in the suburb are regarded as excellent. Rondebosch is also convenient for access to UCT (University of Cape Town) and medical centres such as Groote Schuur Hospital and the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.

This makes the suburb highly sought after with family buyers, students and medical professionals, says the agent. Another interesting point, is the close proximity to major sport stadia such as the Newlands Rugby and Cricket grounds and Athlone Stadium. Another feature, is the large greenbelt area, the Rondebosch Common for walking, dog walking and cycling and of course, the fabulous views of Table Mountain.

The leafy suburb offers a stunning lifestyle and now attracts buyers from across the country including Johannesburg and upcountry buyers looking for a home close to top schools.

Despite the challenging economy, property continues to be in high demand. The average range for family houses is R4m-R8m, but luxury homes can reach R18.25m for a rare contemporary home in a modern Cape vernacular style that breaks with the traditional character of the suburb.

This property epitomises luxury for a family and is within walking distance of Bishops, Rondebosch Boys, Oakhurst and Micklefield and offers easy access to UCT, the sporting venues and major arterial roads.

The land is bigger than the norm at over 2100sqms and the house a spacious 500sqm-plus, she says. This fabulous home feels like a Constantia estate with stunning landscaped gardens with water features, a beautiful courtyard entry, lovely entertainment area with a solar-heated pool, de-ionised borehole water and garaging for four vehicles. The property is also fibre-ready.

It includes a fully fitted wine cellar with a wrought-iron gate along with all the extras that a family will need, spacious living rooms with fireplaces, large kitchen with a laundry, solid White Oak engineered wooden floors and three large bedrooms, all air-conditioned with luxurious en-suite bathrooms with heated towel rails and more. The home is also techno-friendly, fully kitted out with TV, HD, LAN and telephone links. There is also a self-contained one-bedroomed flat with a kitchen and private courtyard, ideal for a teenager, elderly parent or housekeepers’ accommodation.

The market performance and average price growth shows that Rondebosch is an excellent property investment. The central location and desire for good schooling is a big draw-card that will no doubt continue to boost demand and property values.
