Rather like a 5-star wine from the many top-end cellars that surround it, Silverhurst Residential Estate has matured into a wonderful blend of comfort and gracious living set in beautiful surroundings.This fully-developed and exclusive haven in Upper Constantia is still a first choice for discerning buyers – particularly those looking for a true residential estate rather than a hybrid such as golf/residential, restaurant/residential or horsey/residential.
Despite being so close to a bustling, modern city, the lovely Silverhurst gardens, trees and wonderful mountain views provide an idyllic setting for a tranquil and peaceful way of living, so it is hardly surprising that those few properties that do come on to the market estate seldom list for very long.
And while the many beautiful homes within showcase this residential focus and a comfortable and relaxed lifestyle, the estate nonetheless offers quick access (20 minutes or less) to nearby wine estates, excellent restaurants, golf courses, riding schools and stables and some of the other necessities of life – schooling, shopping and easy access to Cape Town city centre or the airport.
The estate design was influenced by the initial layout of Swellendam, Paarl and Tulbach, but particular attention was paid to the topography and micro-climate. The result was five precincts that are subtly different and that are home to varying architectural styles, but which combine into a balanced whole set in some of the best land in the southern suburbs with rich soil, fine gardens and tall trees, all cooled by the fresh ocean breezes from nearby False Bay.
