Green Point has become the center of cool - which is not an easy task in the already cool Cape Town - with its vibrant community and trendy residential offerings, it is easy to see why it is cooler than cool to live here.
Green Point lies between the V&A Waterfront and Signal Hill on the Main Road en route to Sea Point. Green Point exudes a village feel with narrow villa-lined streets, sidewalk cafes and stylish shops. Many of the homes are Victorian-style restorations with balconies and trellises as well as lovingly reconditioned original features of this period.
The village style atmosphere of Green Point is driven home by the modernised Victorian-era homes that seamlessly blend with the newer property developments in the area.
The mix of residential and trendy nightlife options make this a popular residential area for young professionals.
