Today this prestigious area is home to many of the most beautiful homes in South Africa, and has some of the most valuable real estate on the continent.
Alongside Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs is the enviable neighbourhood of Bishopscourt. This leafy suburb was once a farm owned by Jan van Riebeek and today is known for its beautifully landscaped gardens, tree-lined avenues and views of Table Mountain. While it may be a small area, houses for sale in Bishopscourt are generally large, with plots reaching up to 3000 square metres or more. For this reason, Bishopscourt property is favoured by families seeking ample bedroom space and expansive gardens where green fingers can dabble and children can play.
