Upper Woodstock trending and homes are in demand

Woodstock is trending right now and properties in upper Woodstock are in high demand, says Laurence van Blerck, an estate agent with Knight Frank Residential SA who is marketing a carefully and sensitively maintained Victorian property in Roodebloem Road priced at R3,495 million.

This carefully and sensitively maintained Victorian property in Roodebloem Road, priced at R3,495 million, is being marketed by Knight Frank Residential SA.

Set on a 355m² erf, this three bedroom family home has kept its old world charm and offers generous accommodation with a spacious living room, separate kitchen, and a study.

The home has all the characteristics of a classic Cape Victorian; broekie lace trim, generous wooden doorways, wooden sash windows and gleaming Oregon pine floors. Two of the rooms have their original pressed ceilings and fireplaces with the traditional tile trim.

The kitchen and bathroom have been updated and modernised, and the new owner of this home need not spend a cent in revamping or renovating for years to come, he said.

This immaculate property is situated in the heart of the vibrant urban hub of Upper Woodstock, on the MyCiti bus route and close to the CBD. There is quick and easy access to the freeway to UCT and Groote Schuur Hospital. The area offers an excellent and often cheaper option for those looking to live in the city. 

Properties are sought after by young professionals and are popular with creative and artistic types who want to enjoy the bohemian chic and community spirit of Woodstock. It has many trendy spots with a mix of restaurants, coffee shops and bars.

The property offers flexible and exciting options, said van Blerck. The living area opens up to a traditional stoep and a small front garden. Both the front and back gardens are low maintenance with sprinkler systems. There is also secure parking at the rear for at least six cars behind an automated gate. There is excellent security throughout.

This is the perfect home for people wanting to live close to all amenities and enjoy the lively buzz of Woodstock, said van Blerck.
