A Bishopscourt mansion - luxury at your fingertips

A contemporary home offering every conceivable luxury feature has come onto the market in a quiet pocket of Bishopscourt, Cape Town. Situated on over 5000sqm, the north-facing home enjoys mountain views from every room, emphasized by the use of large windows in its striking design. Pam Golding Properties has the exclusive mandate to market the property, which is priced at R38 million.

Bishopscourt is arguably one of Cape Town’s most prestigious suburbs, renowned for its grand homes set on extensive grounds. The area is home to many diplomats, celebrities and captains of industry, who enjoy the elevated hillside setting, beautiful mountain views and quiet leafy streets. Property prices are among the highest in the city, with top-end luxury properties regularly changing hands for over R35 million. However the suburb also offers a range of more modest (although still upmarket) family homes, with entry level pricing between R5 million and R10 million.

PGP agents Myrna Duveen and Richard Epstein say the R38 million home which has come onto the market in Bishopscourt Drive would be an ideal residence for an executive and his/her family, particularly those who enjoy entertaining. There are six luxurious en-suite bedrooms as well as a separate guest house offering privacy for visitors. Large inter-leading reception rooms flow out onto a covered patio ideal for al fresco entertaining, overlooking the swimming pool and gardens. “The property offers an ideal blend of impressive formal entertainment spaces and relaxed family living areas,” say the agents, “and the overall atmosphere is one of privacy and tranquillity.”

Additional features include a tennis court with adjacent pavilion, a squash court, fully-fitted gym room, Jacuzzi and sauna. The large garden is watered by a borehole, and the property is protected by extensive hi-tech security, including an alarm system, electronic beams, electric fence and security cameras which can be viewed on all TV units.  Staff accommodation is provided, as well as garaging for five vehicles.
