Neighbourhoods we love: Woodstock, Cape Town

Trendy and a favourite with millennial couples, the Cape Town suburb of Woodstock is experiencing a renewal and with its mix of modern and Victorian charm it is easy to see why it is so popular. 



Located just outside Cape Town’s Central Business District, Woodstock is one of the city’s oldest suburbs, and after a period of decay the area started undergoing a rejuvenation. In the last couple of years however, true transformation has taken place across this historic suburb.

There’s an abundance of affordable and charming Victorian semi-detached homes which are complimented by trendy restaurants and coffee shops, furniture stores, fashion outlets and innovative businesses. Adding to the attractiveness of the suburb is its proximity to Cape Town’s city centre, the good transport network and the diversity of culture.

The area is popular with the young and trendy who love city life but who still appreciates a quieter lifestyle and enjoys having more space than you would find in the city centre. 

Foodies rejoice - Woodstock is home to some of the best restaurants with eateries such as Test Kitchen, Pot Luck Club and coffee artisans Rosetta Roastery calling the area home. There is definitely a sense of ‘Local is Lekker’ here - this can attributed to not only the delicious restaurants but also the fashion designers and homeware crafters who call Woodstock home.

All of these hotspots are within easy walking distance - another big attraction for the younger crowd. 

The great thing about Woodstock for those wanting to enter the property market is that although there has been an increase in prices it remains fairly affordable, it is also becoming popular with investors and developers which means the property market here is set to grow over the next couple of years and it will be a smart move to get in now.
