Cape Town is an amazingly open and vibrant city, squeezed between the mountains and the deeply blue but cold Atlantic Ocean. It teems with great restaurants, trendy bars, lively nightclubs and designer shops. Beautiful countryside and wine farms surround the city, and there are magnificent walks direct from my house into the mountains or down by the sea.
Perched on the slopes of Lion's Head, part of the Table Mountain Nature Park, the house offers magnificent panoramic views of both sea and mountains. From balconies and terraces over three floors you can see whales and dolphins in the bay, while hang gliders take off from Lion's Head just behind the house. I don't believe there are more magnificent sunsets anywhere in the world.
The house is close to excellent, high quality supermarkets and a host of shops and cafés on Sea Point Main Road, while the V&A Waterfront (designer shops, open air restaurants, boat trips and tremendous vibe), Cape Quarter, Green Point Stadium and the City Bowl and city centre are a few minutes away by car. Bantry Bay and Clifton with their famous beaches are also four or five minutes away, as is Camps Bay which adds a huge selection of restaurants and trendy bars to its magnificent stretches of sand.
You can walk from directly behind the house up into the Table Mountain Park, and from there take a host of challenging walks including the climbs of Table Mountain and Lion's Head.
The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens with their amazing display of proteas and the wineries of Constantiare are a 15-20 minute drive away, and the wonderful countryside and wine farms of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek are easily accessible. Night life in Long Street is a thirty rand cab ride away, as are dozens of quality restaurants and bars.
