Historical oasis in convenient Claremont

Dating back more than 150 years, a beautifully-restored heritage property on Montrose Avenue in Claremont still offers comfort and tranquility for today’s home buyer

The thatched-roof home set on a generous 587m2 erf offers spacious accommodation in the heart of Claremont. Known as ‘Palmyra’ – a Greek term of biblical origin relating to an oasis of palm trees – the home is being marketed by Pam Golding Properties for R4.5 million. It is conveniently located near popular Palymra Junction, with easy access to public transport, sports stadia, nearby shopping centres, and Claremont CBD.

“Homes in this part of Claremont are in high demand, given the area’s excellent location and nearby schools,” says Annabelle Bennett, Pam Golding Properties agent for the area. “Adding to this is the appeal of owning a heritage home. Although fitted with contemporary finishes, this house reflects the history of the area,” she adds.

This remaining house in Montrose Avenue still boasts a lush garden, with uninterrupted views of the mountain. The home has four large rooms with a variety of configuration options, a kitchen, and a downstairs bathroom. A loft conversion adds two versatile areas and a bathroom. With its high ceilings, moulded cornices and imported wood strip flooring and slate tiles, this heritage home is a timeless classic. The modern kitchen has teak working tops, and there are three working fireplaces to use in winter. French doors lead to an enclosed entertainment patio and there is also a west-facing patio overlooking the garden.

Mary Davidson, Pam Golding Properties agent for Claremont and Lynfrae, says this home provides a unique opportunity to own a heritage property in one of Cape Town’s most established suburbs
