Langebaan is everyone’s favorite escape – the beaches are idyllic and the waters are crystal blue. Restaurants line the beach and quaint seaside living becomes the order of the day.

Many Capetonians own property here and it is also very popular with buyers and investors from across the country. You’d be surprised to learn how many people working in Cape Town commute daily from Langebaan. The area has experienced a property boom, with three good years of sales.

The popularity of Langebaan lies in its close proximity to the city, under an hour and a half’s drive and on a Friday afternoon or over long weekends and school holidays, you can be sure there is a constant stream of cars out of the city en route to Langebaan via the R27.

Jaco Coetzee, from Seeff Langebaan, says the local property market has experienced three successive excellent years with the last year’s property transactions topping the 700-unit mark and generating value of almost R870 million. This was very much on par with the 2016 year and represent a 40% improvement in activity over the last five years.

Part of the attraction of the village is its exclusive developments like the luxury Calypso Beach Estate with its private beach and 24/7 security and patrols. Calypso Beach is one of the only traditional breeding areas of the black oystercatcher and is located next to Mykonos with its hotel and casino and holiday apartments and popular restaurants.

There are direct beach access and approximately 342 plots of around 350-500sqm, priced from just R550,000 to R4.2m. Houses sell from R2.1m to R8.9m.

It is an opportunity to invest in a luxury plot and plan option for R5.4m which includes a spacious 445sqm three-story architectural home complete with its own (optional) direct access lift from the three-car garage which serves all three floors. The home offers a modern design with minimalist characteristics of wood, glass, and top-class finishes. There is also a fully integrated rain and greywater harvesting system.

The estate is close to the Laguna Mall and Curro Private School, a yacht club and you can enjoy fabulous water sport, boating, and yachting – it is also a popular kite surfing area.
