PROPERTY BROKERS IN SOMERSET WEST
The Cape Helderberg, or Helderberg basin, is one of the most visually dramatic areas in the Cape, with the Hottentots Holland and Helderberg Mountain ranges creating a powerful backdrop against which the valley descends into vineyards and finally on to a coastline swept with warm waters and effortlessly white, sandy beaches. This is the land of the Helderberg and Stellenbosch wine routes and home to the towns of Gordon’s Bay, Somerset West, Strand, Lwandle and Macassar. 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, the land that originally belonged to the Strandlopers has become a playground for visitors and locals.
Excellent schools such as Paarl Vallei High School, Somerset West Primary School and Stellenbosch University, only 15 minutes away, serve the community’s educational needs. A 20 minute drive to the Cape Town International Airport makes the Helderberg the ideal residential area for business people and travelers.
Somerset West's main attraction is the high quality of life it offers. Two of the twenty most expensive suburbs in South Africa, Erinvale and Spanish Farm, offers the most discerning buyers some superb property choices. It is rumored that Somerset West hosts amongst the highest concentration of millionaires per square kilometer in the country.
