Mark and Bibie are the happy owners of this property. After living in London, Paris and Brussels, we moved in Cape Town in 2013 to enjoy the good weather and the beauty of the city. In March 2019 we are moving to another dream destination: Mauritius
Bibie purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Bibie chose Wynberg NU (2)
We fell in love with Cape Town and the beautiful and green Constantia area. We bought the property 4 years ago and made a lot of changes to build an enchanting child friendly and eco place. The property is ideally located on Rhodes drive in the Constantia wine valley. "Rhodes Drive is a 7 km mountain drive along the eastern slopes of the Table Mountain range and connects Constantia Nek in the south with the suburb of Newlands. This is one of the most scenic wooded drives on the Cape Peninsula and traverses some of the plush suburbs of the Southern Peninsula. It is also the only access road to the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. From dense indigenous forests, to towering old pine trees, majestic mountains, hiking trails, picnic spots and world class botanical gardens - it's all there along the wonderful Rhodes Drive" (cf. southafricamountainpasses).
What makes this Cottage unique
The property has beautiful mountain view, is very well protected from the wind (which can be a nightmare elsewhere in Cape Town) and has a wonderful and colourful garden, a paradise for birds and butterflies. We have 2 massive and very old trees (an avocado which produces tons of delicious fruits all year long and a yellowwood ) and more than 20 different varieties of fruit and nut trees. Everything that grows in our garden is organic, from the grass and the flowers to the fruits and vegetables.
