The charming appeal of luxury homes in Stellenbosch


It is the second oldest town in South Africa, steeped in rich history, tradition, and beautiful architecture. Yet, it is also young and vibrant, inextricably linked with one of the leading universities in the country. This is Stellenbosch – a town that, in many ways, offers you the best of everything. Luxury homes dot the gorgeous countryside, nestled among the popular wine farms, and companies are thriving in the business centre, where leading entrepreneurs have settled to enjoy both the tranquil beauty and the close proximity to Cape Town.


Whether you are driving through the historical centre of town or cruising through the numerous upmarket developments that have sprung up in the surrounding countryside over the last couple of years, you will be sure to notice the large selection of stunning luxury homes that comprise the residential component of Stellenbosch.
