Is Cape Town calling you?
People love the Cape and Cape Town; almost everyone dreams of living, working and playing there. The scenic views of Cape Town, many of them set against the beautiful backdrop of mighty Table Mountain, are famous and recognised across the world, even by people who’ve never had the pleasure of visiting the Mother City of South Africa.
Beachfronts and water
The Cape coastline is long, featuring invitingly clean, white sandy beaches, all the way from the furthest point of the West Coast and its quaint beachfront villages, past Cape Town and beyond to the Eastern Cape province. It’s to be expected that beachfront apartments and homes across the Cape represent some of this country’s most sought-after, prime residential properties.
Just as the tides ebb and flow, human beings feel the pull and are drawn to the sea and fresh water sources. This is hardly surprising when you remember that about 60% of the human body consists of water, and babies in utero develop and grow in their own water world.
As Homo sapiens, we cannot survive without water; our very lives depend on this combination of two parts of hydrogen, and one part of oxygen. Although humans cannot hydrate themselves by drinking saline sea water, mankind uses the oceans for numerous other purposes and activities – swimming, sailing, surfing, diving, exploration, and as a source of healthy sea foods.
Direct water and beachfront access, such as one typically enjoys from a beachfront apartment, is precious, likewise the views and vistas over the ocean, from beach to distant, unending deep blue horizon. The beachfront and ocean proximity bring a calm, soothing sense of peace to adjacent apartment residents when the weather is good; when it’s stormy in the Cape, the might of moody, booming waves against coastal rocks is supremely exciting.
Magnificent mountain ranges
Cape mountain ranges are spectacular too, from the craggy Cederberg in the west, to the Hottentots Holland, Drakenstein, and Hex River Mountains, as well as the Kogelberg, the Swartberg, and many, many more. Cape Town and the surrounding towns also lie in the heart of South Africa’s premier wine producing region.
Cape Town’s magnificent mountain ranges offer their own unique adventures, challenges and leisure activities, in addition to the beauty that they bring to the Cape. Mountain climbing, bouldering, paragliding and abseiling clubs offer the perfect way to explore the mysteries of the Mother City’s mountains.
Whatever each person’s specific reason, many are drawn to the Cape.
Back to beachfront apartments in Cape Town
Because beachfront houses and apartments are so highly sought after, and the supply (and coastline) is not without its limits, you can expect to pay somewhat more for such properties. However, you enjoy all the obvious benefits attached to beachfront living.
Investing in a beachfront apartment makes sound financial sense too, irrespective of whether you intend on making it your own home, or you’re buying to offer the apartment for rent. Providing that you buy wisely, and the building and its facilities are properly maintained, you’re as close to getting a guarantee on a substantially increased future value as is possible, despite the fact that no such guarantees exist in reality.
It’s a wise buyer who engages the services of a reputable and suitably experienced, professional estate agent to assist and guide them through the buying process of beachfront apartments. All Fine & Country South Africa agents possess the necessary, in-depth knowledge of the affluent areas in which they operate, and the luxurious types of properties found there.
Don’t take risks when buying or selling beachfront apartments in Cape Town; our local agents are on hand to ensure that your transactions are problem-free, pleasurable and profitable.
