UPPER CONSTANTIA – FIVE BEDROOM HOME WITH TWO GUEST COTTAGES ON LARGE GROUNDS.
Asking price : 27 million ZAR.
Large palatial home on over two acres of land with two offices and two separate, self-contained cottages offering a further 5 bedrooms of accommodation to total over 1000m2 of living space. Additional features include a wine cellar, orchard, large pool, landscaped grounds and lawns and excellent security features.
Our client, a European family with two young children seeking a better lifestyle, had a very specific brief for their first home in South Africa, which included separate guest accommodation and an office as well as substantial grounds, within easy access to the beaches and city. We viewed 19 properties in the Constantia and Bishopscourt areas, knowing only these locations would give us the amount of external space and the size of home that the client wanted.
Given a shortlist of six properties, the client chose the one home which was priced above budget, which was clearly in a league of it’s own and has some of the best finishes of any property we have seen in 8 years in Cape Town. It is in a very exclusive part of leafy Constantia, next to the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens with views of Table Mountain.
This property was sourced through our network and was not on the open market. After much negotiation, a fantastic final price of 24 million was negotiated, giving a saving of 12% on the asking price.
