1 Higgo Road, Higgovale
If you’re a visionary and a nature lover who also enjoys your feet planted firmly in the city, draw a little closer. Number 1 Higgo Road is a rare find. Not just a coveted Cape Town address that is sublimely upmarket, it is one of just a few prime open spaces to build the dream home in your mind. With it is also a distinct sense place: before you lies iconic Table Mountain and, being on a slope, your views are unobstructed – now and forever.
Wake up to the dance of light on the mountain that continues throughout the day. Head down to the cool eateries and shops in Kloof Street or the hip hub of Bree Street. Hop on over to the calm beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, beautifully sheltered by the Twelve Apostles. Or dive into the magnetic, energetic city bowl. Virtually anything you could wish for is literally 3km away. In a world-class city, that is quite extraordinary. Sidewalk cafes to quaint grocery stores, gyms to Bohemian entertainment, fashion boutiques to art galleries and décor shops, this affluent neighbourhood is sprinkled with nuggets. And everything is so very accessible.
This enchanting, contoured land has ready architects’ plans that only use half the 450m2 space. Park your car at ground level, and go up a level to two en-suite bedrooms, with window seats for full-frame mountain views. Outside is a sunken courtyard for chilling and a pool for cooling, and the views are panoramic from here too. Up another level is living and dining space and then the coup d gras is an expansive rooftop terrace, where you are on top of the world and a little closer to the clouds. Imagine 360 degree views over the majestic mother city lying at your feet.
This space is ever changing through the distinct seasons. Bright blue skies over Table Mountain hail summer and in winter you can watch cloud tumble down the mountain sides like waterfalls. It is also South Africa’s most photographed landmark and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, plus Table Mountain is a World Heritage Site and a National Park. All this is your everyday view and natural centrepiece. That is a rare find indeed, and a once in a lifetime opportunity to build your vision of the ultimate home – close to the very best of everything natural and urban that Cape Town has to offer.
