Luxury Property for Sale in Cape Town - Fine and Country SA

Luxury Property for Sale in Cape Town

Luxury properties on sale in the Cape Town area

Nowadays, in the minds of many, the City of Cape Town and its surroundings are synonymous with luxury property, virtually to the same extent that the Cape is synonymous with its unique plant species, fynbos, which is found nowhere else in the world.

Justified perception of luxury

Here, in Cape Town, upmarket properties that go on sale typically achieve record-breaking prices, so the commonplace perception of luxury properties in Cape Town is justified and founded in fact. As one of the leading estate agency groups, Fine & Country South Africa can attest to this, since luxury property sales are our speciality, focus, and the business to which we dedicate our expertise and able endeavours on behalf of our clients.

Fine & Country South Africa is this country’s branch of the Fine & Country Group, which has representation in more than 300 offices worldwide, giving us and our clients a distinct advantage in their property sales and transactions via our international exposure to the marketplace.

Cape luxury properties marketed worldwide

Additionally, our innovative marketing strategies are creative and intelligent, which are characteristics that appeal to and attract sophisticated, high-end property sellers and buyers throughout the world. This provides even more extensive, further-reaching exposure to our clients’ properties locally in Cape Town, as well as those abroad – a global village consisting of luxury properties, one might say.  

Agriculture in the early Cape

Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa. It was first settled by Europeans in 1652, when Jan (Johan) van Riebeeck made landfall in the then Cape of Storms.

Initially, the Dutch had no intention of claiming the land as their colony; they merely wanted to produce vegetables, meat, and other edible goods with which to supply their passing ships with on an otherwise long, sometimes arduous sea voyage.

Under van Riebeeck, nine former VOC men became the first farmers who adopted European farming concepts in Cape Town. Thereafter, in 1679, under Governor Simon van der Stel, twenty company employees (free burghers), established additional farms in the fertile area that was to become Stellenbosch.

The Cape featured unique fynbos plant species aplenty, but livestock, seeds, and seedlings that might survive a sea voyage were imported from Europe. To this day, many areas bordering on Cape Town are still sought after and have now become upmarket agricultural properties – producers of export quality vegetables, fruits, and wines. Much of the rest of Cape Town is home to prime, luxury property of great interest to Fine & Country South Africa and our clients.  

Fynbos and fires

As a mountainous, regularly windy area that features indigenous, naturally growing fynbos, wildfires occur from time to time in the Cape. Wildfires can occur naturally, so it has become necessary to protect Cape Town’s properties of all descriptions, as well as human life and infrastructure, by being proactive and creating more public awareness of the potential wildfire hazards.

In the USA and Canada, Wildfire Community Preparedness Day takes place on the 4th of May 2019. Whilst this day isn’t part of the Cape Town community calendar, why not get together groups of Cape Town property owners and neighbours to join hands in getting out and about. Enjoy the indigenous plant life, spectacular scenery, nature’s bounty, and views of the magnificent Cape, while helping to focus attention on your community’s wildfire prevention and preparedness initiatives.

At Fine & Country South Africa, we are passionate about the protection of the Cape against wildfires, as well as the amazing properties to be found for sale here. If you are looking to put your luxury property up for sale, give us a call.
