For those seeking the high-life in a truly spectacular setting, there can be few more sought-after addresses than Nettleton Road, Clifton.
The Cape Town street is home to some of the country’s most magnificent trophy homes, and its residents include captains of industry, celebrities and international jetsetters. From its elevated position the homes have panoramic views of the Atlantic Seaboard, and it provides the backdrop for a cosmopolitan lifestyle worthy of the French Riviera.
Pam Golding Properties’ area manager for the Atlantic Seaboard and City Bowl, Basil Moraitis, says Nettleton Road is home to some of the most luxurious homes in South Africa, if not the African continent.
“This address represents the epitome of the celebrity lifestyle. Properties here are regularly listed for sale from R45 million up to R80 million, R90 million or even R100 million. It is popular with foreign buyers who want luxury homes that allow them to enjoy the Clifton beaches and the Cape’s laid-back summer lifestyle, before they return home to spend the northern hemisphere summer in some other playground of the rich and famous. It’s almost like South Africa’s own little St Tropez.”
PGP is marketing a landmark home on Nettleton Road with unobstructed views of Clifton, Camps Bay and the Twelve Apostles. Designed to create a sense of blending into the ocean, mountain and sky, the four bedroom home has a separate guest flatlet and large decks make the most of the views. Additional buildings include staff accommodation and garaging for three vehicles. The west-facing home is on a 946 m2 erf and is for sale at R47 million.
PGP’s MD for the Western Cape metro region, Laurie Wener, says the home was designed by architect Arthur Quinton, who recently modernized and refurbished the property.
