Cape Town City Bowl welcomes luxury gated estate

While an address on the Atlantic seaboard and Cape Town’s City Bowl continues to be in demand, the area is largely characterised by apartments with ocean views and proximity to the inner city. The recent launch of The Ridge Estate will now also offer luxury gated community living for homebuyers here. Ross Levin, Seeff licensee for the Atlantic seaboard and City Bowl, says there has been no luxury estate housing here or in the surrounding areas until now. This makes The Ridge Estate a first of its kind in many ways. “It brings an impressive development to this sought-after area,” he says. “Located on the upper slopes of Lion’s Head, it offers 360˚š views of Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and Table Bay.” The estate is located close to the CBD, Waterfront and Atlantic seaboard, making it a central and family-friendly option. “Here, you have the rare opportunity to enjoy the natural environment and immediate access to a cosmopolitan lifestyle,” says Levin. “Education, health care and recreational needs are well catered for with excellent primary and high schools as well as doctors and medical centres in the immediate area.”

The Ridge Estate

Blending city living and natural surrounds, it features two estates consisting of 25 plots – The Ridge Estate Villas that comprise seven plots and The Ridge Estate Residences with 18 plots. Prices for plots start from R8.6m (excluding VAT). All plots are separated by a 3m planting corridor to ensure privacy. This, and state-of-the-art security including 24/7 patrolling, guard houses and CCTV, allow for ultimate safety and exclusivity. The estate, designed under the leadership of top SA architecture firm SAOTA, offers buyers the choice of selecting architectural concept homes with direct interaction with architects and builders or designing their own home. Another unique element is that the development is part of the originally endangered Peninsula Shale Renosterveld, a special type of vegetation found only on the slopes of Signal Hill and Devil’s Peak. “This special natural heritage is honoured in the expansive gardens, shared areas and private homes, enhancing one’s relationship with the outdoors,” says Levin.
