With the vast growth of properties in the fair Cape Peninsula area, we thought it may be useful to provide an overview of the security and residential estates this glorious area has to offer. In a 3 part series to Cape Peninsula estates, here’s an overview of the beautiful residential estates of Noordhoek, in the Western Cape Peninsula.
These estates enjoy the benefits of both ocean breeze and crisp mountain air. The glorious Noordhoek beach is a horse riders dream and perfect for tranquil late afternoon walks or a brisk run with the dogs. Noordhoek offers a creative community inspired by the glory of its natural surroundings.
1. De Goede Hoop Security Estate
The estate was originally laid out with forty-three plots, each measuring 5 acres. Every plot has permission for stables and various outbuildings, which has made the estate popular with horse owners. It has a path that leads to Long Beach – 8 kilometers of white unspoiled sand, perfect for riding! Within the estate there is also an extensive bridle path. The estate boasts property of ambassadorial proportions in an exceptionally private setting,with fresh mountain streams flowing through formal gardens.
2. Lake Michelle Security & Lifestyle Estate
Situated amidst Noordhoek’s tranquil wetlands, Lake Michelle is a lakefront development offering pure inspiration. Home to over 120 species of bird life, many types of fish, otters and the rare Leopard Toad, the shallow waters around the islands also attract wading birds and water fowl. Canals and rivulets feed into the lake, criss-crossed by bridges and boardwalks. There is water everywhere. The estate offers nature lovers an upmarket lifestyle within an established community of younger families, and is home to the Evergreen Lifestyle’s Retirement village. Residents of the village can enjoy friendships built within a well-managed environment with great food and the benefits of sustained health.
The glory at this estate is all about the open spacious living on offer overlooking the Noordhoek Valley and Atlantic ocean. Situated between the city bustle and the peace of the outdoors, the estate is surrounded by fynbos, endless beaches and sky. The developers have taken ecologically sensitive actions and have included road crossings for the endangered western cape leopard toad and fencing that will not inhibit the spread and growth of the indigenous fynbos vegetation, without compromising on security. The housing line follows the contours of the mountain with picturesque views.
