New Developments in Cape Town

Side by side – Cape Town’s heritage homes and new developments

What’s your image of Cape Town? If you already live in this lovely city, would you ever willingly move away from the Cape? If you live elsewhere, is it your dream to move to Cape Town? What appeals to you the most about the fairest Cape in the world, once known as the Cape of Storms and then, later on, as the Cape of Good Hope?

The latter name has proved to contain a great deal of truth, although some parts of the Cape’s history has been somewhat tumultuous.

Good hope and good intentions

Nevertheless, that was then. Good hope and good intentions would eventually prevail, as it does nowadays in Cape Town. To the millions of people who love the Cape, the thought of living here today is aspirational. It’s also the place where most many South Africans have their roots, since immigrants from various countries, notably the Netherlands or Low Countries, France, Germany, and England relocated to the Cape of Good Hope during the years after 1652.

Heritage homes and luxurious modern developments

Today, the residential areas in and around Cape Town vary greatly, as do the types of homes from which to choose. On occasion, one finds a mix of historical and heritage homes, many of which hold official heritage status, varied architectural styles that include Victorian and iconic Cape Dutch designs, cosy homes that seemingly pay homage to Cape fishermen’s whitewashed, thatched cottages, grand mansions and homesteads, stunning, Mediterranean villas, overlooking the ocean, alongside innovative, ultra-modern or vintage styled, ultra-luxurious new developments.
