Area Focus – Newlands


Newlands is one of Cape Town’s most established suburbs - and also one of its trendiest.

With beautiful mountain views, tree-lined streets, and excellent lifestyle offerings, this area is ideal for families, young professionals and retired couples alike.

If you’re looking for a serene spot in the Southern Suburbs where there’s never a boring day, Newlands may be just the place. Here are some great reasons to buy residential Cape realty in the area.

Tranquil living with excitement just around the corner

It’s rare to find a suburb that offers peaceful suburban living, access to excellent schools and a world-class university, and a vibrant dining and entertainment scene that lasts well into the night.

Newlands is just that type of place - and it’s becoming more popular by the day.

Set at the foot of Table Mountain, with the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens just a few minutes away, Newlands is a green oasis. Like its neighbour Bishopscourt, the area is rich in vegetation, with mature trees that have stood the test of time.

Life in this leafy suburb can be idyllic, but it’s far from boring. Newlands is famous for its cafes, bars and restaurants - not to mention the famous Newlands rugby grounds.

From the timeless Forresters Arms (affectionately known as Forries) and the Springbok Pub to modern establishments like UNiK, Tin Roof and the Boogie nightclub, Newlands has everything you need for a night on the town.

Excellent education at every level

Newlands’ streets have been called evergreen - and so are its established schools.

  • Herschel, Groote Schuur High School, Western Province Preparatory and the South African College High School are just a few of the famous places of learning in Newlands    
  • World-class tertiary education is available at UCT, just a few minutes from Newlands by road or public transportation.

A fantastic selection of homes

Newlands has a variety of residential properties to choose from - probably one of the best in the Cape.

From stately homes, including heritage buildings, to
sectional title, spacious apartments and ultra-modern dwellings, Newlands appeals to young and old, small families and large.
