Why choose Rondebosch? Let’s Talk.

Private: Why choose Rondebosch? Let’s Talk.

Rondebosch is one of the older and larger suburbs situated in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town and is filled with tree lined streets and beautiful parks many of these are hundreds of years old dating back to the original company gardens.

Rondebosch Common, once a military campground, is a national monument and an important fynbos conservation area. Now many locals and tourists do nature walks discovering the amazing fauna and flora some of which is rare and extinct.

Rondebosch is the ideal suburb to raise a family as it has so much to offer from a cultural, sports and family activities perspective. Another reason for the area’s popularity is the magnificent mountain views and communal parks where many dog walkers, families and runners gather.

Spoilt for choice

You are spoilt for choice in Rondebosch, where you will find family homes with 4 or more bedrooms and leafy green gardens as well as 1 to 2 bedroomed lock-up and go investment properties as the suburb is known to hold its value because of its sought-after location and suburban character.

The Rondebosch “Coach House” built in 1862was sectionalised and is called “Rouwkoop Terrace”. Currently on the market, with Tyson Properties, is a unit which has been beautifully renovated and maintained. Offering two bedrooms both en-suite with built in cupboards overlooking the pool.

As Rondebosch is primarily a residential area, the properties range from stately family homes to smaller compact residences and apartment blocks. Catering for growing to established families, young working professionals and students alike there is a wide variety of architectural styles on offer. Many of the older properties have Victorian and Edwardian charm and are often steeped in historical character and value.

Within Rondebosch there are very clear school catchment areas that provide access to some of the most prestigious schools in the Southern Suburbs i.e., Bishops Diocesan College, Rondebosch Boys High & Rondebosch Boys Preparatory schools, St. Joseph’s Marist College as well as Micklefield Girls Primary, Oakhurst Girls Primary, Rustenburg Junior and Rustenburg Senior schools to name just a few.

Many young families wanting the very best education for their children are often looking to move into these sought-after school catchment areas in order to ensure their children have the very best foundation in life. Michael’s Kitchen and Bar, situated at number 88 Sandown Road, is a family favourite eatery in the heart of Rondebosch and is currently live streaming the Bishops and Rondebosch Boys High School sports events for the locals and families to enjoy.

Meet your area specialist

Lesley was approached to join Tyson Properties Southern Suburbs way before the branch opened in Constantia at the Alphen Estate Great Cellar in 2019. The Tyson Properties brand was at that time well-known and highly regarded in The Atlantic Seaboard and West Coast areas of the Western Cape. She pioneered Tyson Properties Southern Suburbs into her existing area of Rondebosch.

Lesley’s story is Beyond Ordinary, with 30 years’ experience in Real Estate and as an annual top achiever, Lesley Payne boasts a collection of highest recorded sales throughout her career and is a reigning silver agent. Integrity, honesty, and communication are the cornerstones of her philosophy, to treat others as she wishes to be treated. She describes herself as having a passion for real estate and gives 110% to her Sellers and Buyers who ultimately become friends and future clients.

Rondebosch offers an unmatched lifestyle.

As the academic epi-centre for the Southern Suburbs and one of the oldest most established suburbs, Rondebosch will remain the location of choice for many wanting the very best for their child/children’s education and future.

I foresee the future of Rondebosch remaining a secure investment in property as I see new families always looking to move into the top school’s catchment area as well as investors still purchasing properties to lease out to students. With Varsity College and the University of Cape Town (UCT) in the centre of Rondebosch there is never enough affordable student accommodation for those attending. Rondebosch is definitely one of the few areas that caters for all the economic brackets with properties ranging in price from Rondebosch Village, Academic, Golden and Silver Mile right up to and including Rondebosch Park Estate.
