Upper Constantia - Moving Back to South Africa.
Asking price : 19 million ZAR.
A client who had used our relocation service a year previously to move his family back to Cape Town from New York, USA, approached us to assist with buying a home. He had, by chance, found a home that he really wanted to buy but had no context for the purchase and wanted to ensure that he was well represented on the price negotiation and that he did not overpay for the home.
In order to be able to correctly analyse the market, we conducted a full search looking at similar properties in this exclusive part of Cape Town where you will find a number of embassies and consulates, as well as the neighbouring parts of the southern suburbs.
After further research, we were able to conclude that the property was slightly overpriced which gave us a good position to negotiate 1 million Rand off the asking price after lengthy discussions with the other party.
This home is an absolute stunner. It is newly built with an exceptional level of finish and presents in immaculate condition with a very neutral, stylish finish throughout. Laid out over two storeys it offers over 600m2 of internal living space with four large bedrooms plus a full, self contained guest suite/apartment, large entertainment room with a modern bar area, landscaped gardens and a fenced swimming pool.
It has a number of covered patios and terraces off the bedrooms and is located in a beautiful, tree lined avenue in the heart of Constantia, within a kilometer of walking trails and green belt and within 2km of the local shopping mall with a number of cafes as well as the surrounding wine farms and vineyards with their world famous vintages and world class restaurants. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Table Mountain National Park are accessible within a few minutes drive.
