About the property

House in Franschhoek, Winelands, Cape Town and Garden Route, South Africa - Corner Site Just Minutes From The Main Street

Cape Robin Cottage is located on a corner site in a street just off the main street in Franschhoek. The property comprises 2 bedrooms (both with en suite facilities), open plan living space with lounge, a fantastic kitchen (the previous owner was a chef!) and separate dining area. There is also a private garage with electric entrance doors and a separate outbuilding which contains storage space and a WC. The outside space has three distinct areas. To the rear of the house is a large decked area with a private pool and barbecue area, to the side is a charming and secluded grassed area and the front garden is extensively planted to provide a splash of colour on arrival. The location of Cape Robin Cottage could not be bettered. It is minutes' walk from Huguenot Street which is filled with wonderful shops and world class restaurants and is also handy for all other local amenities.

Due to the existence of the uncovered swimming pool in the garden, this property is not suitable for families with small children.

About Robin Garrett

My wife and I live in Scotland and we own a number of properties in the UK and USA. We love visiting South Africa and Franschhoek is one of our favourite places there.

Robin Garrett purchased this house in 2014

Why Robin Garrett chose Franschhoek

Franschhoek is a real gem. It's the ideal base for a South African holiday - being in easy reach of Cape Town and the Garden Route to Port Elizabeth.

Inspite of it's close proximity to Cape Town, it is a tranquil, safe and relaxing place - and if you like wine then you couldn't find anywhere better.

What makes this house unique

Our house is a 5 minute walk from the main street which is packed with top class restaurants and interesting shops.

Whatever time of year you chose to visit South Africa, there is so much to do from a base in this glorious place. It really is a 5 star property at exceptionally reasonable rates!
