Focus on Cape Realty in Gardens: Young, Bold and Trending


Gardens is the perfect mix of hip and sophisticated, with a diverse community of residents. Here are some great reasons to live there.

Nestled between the heart of the CBD and the foot of table mountain, Gardens is one of the most desirable Cape Town suburbs for trendy young professionals. With the CBD just minutes away, scenic leafy streets and excellent dining and entertainment options, Gardens residents have the best of Cape Town right on their doorstep.

Here are some highlights of living in Gardens - one of Cape Town’s cosmopolitan hubs.

Quick access to the CBD

Cape Town’s CBD has undergone a total transformation in recent years, making it a thriving commercial district with excellent future prospects. With the popularity of town comes the issue of traffic congestion - but not for Gardens residents.

  • The suburb’s proximity to the CBD allows residents to reach town by foot in just under 15 minutes.
  • That number drops to 5-10 minutes by bicycle and around 7 minutes by bus, depending on the exact location.

Quick access to the CBD might seem like reason enough to move to Gardens - but there are plenty more.

Green leafy streets - leading to the Company’s Gardens

When work is over, Gardens residents come home to a leafy refuge just minutes from the CBD’s hustle and bustle.
Tree-lined streets containing everything from apartment buildings to heritage homes can be found throughout the suburb.

  • The Company’s Gardens, one of Cape Town’s oldest public spaces, offers residents the ideal place to relax.
  • The park’s on-site restaurant is the ideal place to catch up with friends and family.  

Great dining and entertainment

When a light lunch, after-work drinks, or a night on the town are in order, Gardens’ selection of dining venues won’t disappoint. From casual bistro dining at Societi to the nightlife on Kloof Street, Gardens has something to suit every palate and occasion.

Movie lovers will enjoy the art deco Labia Theatre - one of the few cinemas where alcoholic slush puppies are on the menu.

A huge selection of residential property

One of the reasons why Gardens is so popular with young professionals is the range of apartments and small family homes on offer in the area.
