Bishopscourt home sells for a hefty price

The property is located on 8500sqm in exclusive Klaassens Road, arguably the most sought-after address in the Southern Suburbs.  The buyer, a South African, was drawn to its expansive entertainment areas, privacy and security, as well as its generous accommodation.
PGP’s area manager for the Southern Suburbs, Howard Markham, says the sellers demolished an existing older house on the property in the early 2000’s, creating the space to build their dream family home.  

The new house was designed by acclaimed architects Michael Borgstrom and Marco Bezolli, using a contemporary Mediterranean design theme with some references to the Cape Dutch style.  Special features include an extensive, fully-enclosable patio for outdoor entertaining, four luxurious family bedroom suites, plus three additional suites located separately from the main house, for guest and home office use.  Other highlights of the home include a gym room, media room, library and gourmet kitchen, as well as a tennis court and swimming pool.

Markham says the location in the southern quadrant of Bishopscourt, bordering the Constantia Valley, offers some of the suburb’s best views.  “Klaassens Road and its immediate neighbouring streets such as Gloucester and Montrose, enjoy extensive views, not only of the back slopes of Table Mountain, but also over the Constantia Valley and Constantiaberg mountains.  

The entire suburb of Bishopscourt is known for its large family homes on extensive grounds, but some of the finest examples and most ambassadorial proportions can be found in this particular section.  It’s no surprise that properties here regularly fetch well above R20 million.  This particular sale was a cash deal concluded with a local buyer, confirming our experience that there is still demand from South Africans for top-end executive homes in the best suburbs, regardless of current economic conditions.”

Among PGP’s current sole mandates in this section of Bishopscourt is a character-filled family home in Gloucester Road, set on close to 4500sqm.  The home offers four bedrooms, three bathrooms and three reception rooms, plus a swimming pool and manicured garden, creating the ideal environment for family living and for those who entertain regularly.  The property is on the market at R25 million.  

Also for sale exclusively through PGP is a Balinese-style home in Montrose Terrace, ideal for a large family or for executive accommodation.  The home has ten luxurious bedroom suites, a swimming pool and Jacuzzi, and enjoys magnificent views from its entertainment terraces.  The 4000sqm property has excellent security and would also be well-suited for use as a guest lodge, subject to planning approval.  It is on the market at R29 million.
