Private Table Mountain eco-reserve for sale


Cape Town - If it is a quintessential laid-back seaside lifestyle amidst unspoilt nature that you are after, then Scarborough must be top of the list.

This little suburb of the Cape Southern Peninsula that was designated a conservation village in 1996, lies just beyond Kommetjie and, it is here that a 21ha private mountain eco-reserve is now on the market for the first time in over 35 years, priced at R7.5m.

Seeff’s Hout Bay and Llandudno agents, Nolan Wood and Leonard Geffen, who are tasked with marketing the property say that with fifty acres of pristine fynbos on a mountain top plateau with breathtaking views across the fynbos landscape and out to Misty Cliffs and the Atlantic Ocean beyond, existing infrastructure and not a neighbour in sight, the property is a rare listing indeed.

Located about forty minutes from the city or, since there is a helipad on the property, only ten minutes by helicopter the commute is easy, say the agents. It is situated about 4km up the mountain reached via a 4X4 trail and lies within the Baskloof Private Fynbos Nature Reserve that forms part of the Table Mountain National Park.

A number of sought-after hiking trails traverse the property and you can hike from here all the way to Table Mountain, say the agents.

The infrastructure includes a stone residence built atop a cliff and into the natural mountain rock. It includes three bedrooms, a lounge with a fireplace, kitchen with a breakfast area and a one-bedroomed manager’s flat with a kitchenette and living area.

There is also a boma with braai facilities. Adjacent to this is a tented village with a swimming pool, popular with school groups and hikers. Electricity is provided by a wind-powered generator and water is sourced from a mountain spring. Solar panels provide hot water.
