Recognised as one of Cape Town’s finest suburbs, Bishopscourt was laid out on the grounds of the farm Boschheuvel (bushy hill), originally owned by Jan van Riebeeck. Bishopscourt derives it’s modern name from the beautiful residence of the Anglican Bishop of Cape Town, and includes the handsome residences of Consulars and Ambassadors as well as homes chosen by many famous international and local people. Most properties have spectacular panoramic views of the mountain as well as enjoying the easterly views across the lower city. The area is protected from the “south-easter” – the prevailing summer wind.
Situated in the southern suburbs of Cape Town, Bishopscourt lies below the internationally famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, about ten kilometres from the city centre. It is about twenty minutes drive from the warm waters of the False Bay beaches to the south, and about the same driving time from Cape Town’s International Airport.
