Keeping an eye on new Atlantic Seaboard property developments
A seaboard is defined as a region that borders on the sea, but the word “seaboard” somehow has a more exotic ring to it, especially if the seaboard in question is that of the mighty Atlantic Ocean.
There are five oceans in the world. The Atlantic Ocean isn’t only mighty (powerful), but it is also vast, as it is the second largest ocean in the world, almost half the size of the Pacific Ocean (the world’s biggest). The Indian Ocean is third largest, followed by the Arctic Ocean, still enormous, but smaller. The Southern Ocean is the smallest of the five oceans.
A sea is smaller than an ocean, but is nevertheless part of an ocean – the part that is situated near land or the part where the salt water and the land meet. Traditionally, people, particularly sailors, referred to the “Seven Seas”, a somewhat romantic term which referred to the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, and Arctic Oceans, plus the Caribbean Sea, Mediterranean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico at one time in history.
New Atlantic Seaboard properties to arrest one’s attention
If you’re a property investor or buyer of exclusive, luxurious properties in South Africa, and the new property developments along Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard have not yet arrested your attention, you’ve possibly been living with your head in the sand – and we don’t mean the wonderfully white, clean beach sand that you’ll encounter along the Cape’s popular Atlantic Seaboard.
At Fine & Country South Africa, we’ve long been aware of the allure of the Atlantic Seaboard, which extends from Table Bay’s iconic V&A Waterfront, to just a little beyond the pretty shores of an erstwhile fishing village, Hout Bay.
The suburbs along this Atlantic Seaboard between the two points of departure include Mouille Point, Green Point, Three Anchor Bay, Sea Point, Fresnaye, Bantry Bay, Clifton, Camps Bay, Bakoven, and Llandudno. Just beyond Hout Bay, you’ll find Noordhoek and Scarborough.
It seems as though property and new developments should be plentiful because the list of areas and suburbs is quite extensive, but this is not necessarily so. People are happy living here, and they don’t sell properties at the drop of a hat.
The land that’s available and suitable for new developments is finite, not unlimited. This correctly implies that one should get onto the property acquisition ladder while properties in new developments are still available; they certainly won’t be on offer for very long.
Cape Town properties, especially those that are in good locations and are upmarket, are always in demand, and even more so if they front onto water and/or the Atlantic Seaboard. It’s not only the best address; it’s the place where everyone wants to be, a place that offers a lifestyle that’s second to none.
Yes, the golden rule of location, location, location applies to the Atlantic Seaboard and its new developments, but living and investing in this particular coastline holds much more appeal. Even in a subdued economic climate, the demand for and prices attained by properties here are buoyant, and continue to increase in value and desirability.
