Set high against the backdrop of fynbos covered mountains, overlooking the picturesque fishing harbour and beach of Hout Bay, is a secret seaside estate like no other!

The estate is just over 7 000 square meters, comprising four properties. The main residence is set close to an acre of park-like gardens with a floodlit tennis court and a lovely entertainment pavilion alongside a 15 meter heated rim-flow pool.

On a separate property, there is a self-contained cottage on its erf alongside the Main house and a further two vacant properties with indigenous bush backing the main house.

Loved and cared for over the years by discerning owners the estate is in immaculate condition and offers excellent facilities. The views from the house are secure as they cannot be obstructed by property development.

surrounded by mountains. It is behind Table Mountain with the Disa River flowing down its centre past equestrian smallholdings on its way to the sea. A kilometre long, white, sandy beach
