Fine & Country South Africa’s investment properties in Franschhoek

 

Almost any and every property in Franschhoek may be an investment property, because this reflects just how popular this pretty Boland town has become, and consequently, how sought-after property in and around the town is now.

 

It’s a financial reality. Franschhoek property, whether bought for pure investment purposes, or for residential or commercial occupation by the owner, has tremendous investment value, a value that is only likely to increase, as popularity and demand grows, while the supply and availability of properties offered for sale decreases.

 

A snapshot of Franschhoek

 

Like so many other beautiful things and spectacularly scenic places, mere descriptive words, pictures or photographs fail to do Franschhoek justice, but perhaps may whet investors’ appetite to investigate the premier property market of this gorgeous area.  

 

Franschhoek is set in a sprawling valley of the same name, surrounded by magnificent mountains that enclose and enfold the valley’s farms, homesteads, town and vineyards, where some of this country’s finest and famous estate wines are produced.

 

Today, Franschhoek is often referred to as the food and wine capital of South Africa – an enormous accolade, because this country boasts untold numbers of excellent eateries, most of which include wines from the Cape and/or Franschhoek’s cellars.

 

Foodies’ heaven

 

A list of Franschhoek’s fine-dining restaurants reads like the “Who’s Who” in this sector of the country’s hospitality industry. A meal, or two, or more is not to be missed at any of these outstanding establishments, if and when you’re able, and you most certainly will be, if you own property in Franschhoek. Dining out is definitely on the cards when you’re in or near this charming town.

 

Two scenic access routes

 

The panoramic vistas from the Franschhoek Pass, one of only two routes that lead into the valley, are jaw-dropping and breathtaking, sure to stop everyone in their tracks. The pass features various spots where one can pull off the road to gaze at the spectacular scenery.

 

This particular route joins Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl. A second access route from Villiersdorp joins the Franschhoek Pass, before the road enters the valley with its array of attractions that draw visitors from near and far, both locally and internationally.

 

Famous, fabulous Franschhoek experiences

 

There’s no access or exit on the eastern side of the valley, where it’s blocked off from the rest of the Cape by the mountain range. Tourists, among them day-visitors and long-term holidaymakers, history buffs, admirers of architectural heritage, lovers of fine wines and avid gourmet foodies, flock to Franschhoek throughout the year.

 

There’s an enormous amount of outstanding and unique attractions and things to see, do, study, taste, drink and experience. Many of this country’s top restaurants and wine estates are found in Franschhoek, another fact that beckons visitors and simultaneously increases property and investment values too.

 

Taking a break

 

However, visitor numbers decline somewhat during the Cape winter months of May or June, until August, September or October, when many restaurants, wine tasting venues and businesses close, this being the height of the winter season, during which these operations take a well-deserved break – an occurrence that’s quite unique in South Africa.

 

Investing in Franschhoek’s prestigious properties

 

According to one report, Franschhoek remains an “emerging wealth town”, accommodating an estimated 2 500 “dollar millionaires”, who have in all likelihood invested money in acquiring their properties here.

 

In such a lively property market, it’s really important to have the assistance of a professional estate agent, who has personal experience and intimate knowledge about everything pertinent to Franschhoek and its high-end properties that represent good investment potential.

 

At Fine & Country South Africa, we also have access to overseas property investors via our 300 plus worldwide offices, so we’re best placed to help ensure your Franschhoek investment property transactions, whether you’re buying or selling.
