Warmer days mean sipping cocktails along the beachfront, soaking up the sunshine and endless staycations. Cape Town is famous for having some pretty epic getaway properties, and while a trip to Hermanus for a weekend escape is always a great idea, there are a number of incredible properties a little closer to home.
Clifton has always been a fascinating prospect for many South Africans. White-sandy beaches, palm trees, epic ocean views and extravagant homes make this a prime location for those looking to chill out in style and luxury. In light of this, we’re looking at three incredible Clifton properties – one “affordable,” not so affordable, and absolutely ridiculous.
A semi-affordable option, remembering that this is Clifton, is a property dubbed 008 Villa. Nestled on the foot of the Twelve Apostles, incredible views and opulent living is what you’re paying for. Watch the sunset from the spacious outdoor area or take a dip in the property’s infinity pool before whipping something up in the sleek chef’s kitchen. Neutral tones ensure that the interior doesn’t detract from the incredible ocean blues in the distance.
Pitlochry is a recently built vacation home that boasts endless contemporary art pieces, a trendy interior design, and stunning views of Clifton and beyond. Along with its sleek interior design, guests have the chance to work up a sweat in the home gym and chill out in the sprawling pool. If luxe finishes that ensure a sophisticated and tranquil ambience are what you’re after, then this is the property for you.
Ah, Clifton at its finest. Beyond Villa is beyond pricey but boasts some serious luxury. Perched above Clifton Beach and providing spectacular views of the beachfront and famous Mother City landmarks, this sensational property is both modern and opulent and features a home theatre, sauna, steam room and exercise room – everything that your heart desires, really. Grab a drink from the wet bar before gathering around the fire pit and watching the sunset or laze about in the infinity pool while watching Capetonians run about below. It’s a perfect property, no matter how you spin it.
