The Jewel of Newland’s Village!

Charming and serene, this gem of a family home is set against the dramatic backdrop of Table Mountain, sandwiched between Newlands Forest with its beautiful walks, and the trendy boutiques and bustling cafes of Newlands Village. Combining the best of both worlds, this is an enviable lifestyle with the quaint village atmosphere and convenient location hard to match anywhere else in Cape Town. Once a resident here, it’s very hard to leave.

This might be one of the many reasons that historically rich Newlands has retained so much of its charm and character – even as far back as the 1700s it was a thriving hub with fields of vegetables, fruit orchards and even trout hatcheries supplying the Dutch East India Company. Word spread that there was an abundance of fresh spring water, so the first brewer in the area arrived in 1764, when the Montebello homestead and stables were built. Ohlsson and Michaelis followed. Luckily, the architectural heritage of Newlands is still reflected in many homes, or they have been sensitively renovated and opened up to create welcoming, light-filled interiors such as this three-bedroom family home.

Architectural heritage

Shuttered windows, beautiful architraves, thick walls and generous archways are offset today with gorgeous wallpapers, luxurious bathroom fittings, and elegant lighting and flooring throughout. A superb kitchen, that leads off a utility room with direct garage access, is designed with today’s lifestyle in mind.  Bedrooms lead onto a peaceful garden with simple lines and structure complementing the heritage exterior and lines of the house as well as the uninterrupted views of the mountain above Newlands Forest from the lovely outdoor entertaining area. This major restoration included restructuring the living spaces to convert it into a home for a contemporary family but also ensured that the best quality windows, doors, floors and finishes were timeless and chosen to stand the test of time.


Looking for an immaculate home that’s just perfect? This could be it: simply move in and enjoy! Your kids can walk to excellent pre-schools, primary and high schools, keeping driving time to a minimum. Even the shopping malls are on your doorstep, plus top sporting facilities. Working from home is easy with a study or 4th bedroom, but if you need to commute, even the city is only 10-15 minutes’ drive and the international airport is only half an hour away.
