The Three Main Types of Properties For Sale in Sea Point

by | Jan 6, 2016 | Real Esate

Sea Point is one of Cape Town’s most popular suburbs – and with the variety of properties for sale in this fashionable area, it’s not hard to see why. From designer mansions on Ocean View drive to beachfront apartments with balcony views that stretch to the horizon, Sea Point has a huge variety of properties to choose from and Jawitz Properties is proud to offer a fine selection of homes in the area.

The Cape Town suburb that has it all

Many coastal suburbs have views of the sea, while urban hubs have a vibrant nightlife and ample office space for business activities by day – but few areas combine these in close proximity the way Sea Point does. The suburb also enjoys an extremely convenient location in the heart of Cape Town’s exclusive Atlantic Seaboard, giving its residents access to practically every popular amenity in the Mother City.

These factors combine to make Sea Point one of the most desirable places to live in Cape Town – and for property buyers, the variety of properties on offer is a further incentive to choose Sea Point as a residential area or rental property location.
Here are three of the popular types of properties for sale in Sea Point.

1. Beachfront Apartments
Stretching along the Atlantic coast from Mouille Point to Bantry Bay, the Sea Point beachfront is almost entirely developed. Tall apartment blocks overlook the beach, with commanding views of the ocean and proximity to shops and restaurants.

The age and type of apartments on Sea Point’s Beach Road vary considerably, from classic mansion-type apartments to modern designs. The size also varies considerably, from small holiday flat layouts to stately apartments that can contain as many as four bedrooms. As a general rule, the older buildings tend to have larger and more spacious rooms, and are perfect for renovation – if they have not been renovated already.

2. Designer homes on Lion’s Head
The sought-after homes in so-called ‘Upper Sea Point’ border on the exclusive suburb of Fresnaye and share that suburb’s distinguished character. From stately old homes to ultra-modern designer showpieces, many of these houses have breathtaking views – particularly those on Ocean View Drive.
While some property investors relish the idea of restoring a vintage Sea Point villa to its former glory, others embrace modern times and demolish the old structure to make room for a totally contemporary design. As a Sea Point property owner, the choice is yours.

3. Designer cottages on the slopes
Sea Point is famous for its steep and narrow side streets that rise up on the lowest slopes of Lion’s Head. These small streets contain compact, cottage-like homes which are the hidden gems of the Atlantic Seaboard. From quaint fixer-uppers to fully renovated modern compact spaces, these homes offer a happy medium between apartment and villa living – with prices that allow homeowners to buy in the area at a competitive price.
