“Exquisite” Higgovale Haven to Go Under the Hammer

A mansion-like five-bedroom home in the highly sought-after suburb of Higgovale, Gardens, Cape Town, will soon go under Park Village Auctions’ hammer.

That’s the word from PVA Director Clive Lazarus, who describes the sale as a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”

According to Clive, Higgovale represents the finest Cape Town has to offer, with the property on sale epitomising precisely that: luxury Atlantic Seaboard living.  

Located at number 9 Trek Road, the “exquisite home offers magnificent views of Table Mountain and the bustling city centre of Cape Town while providing peaceful seclusion nestled on the slopes of Table Mountain,” says Clive.

The ground floor has an open-plan layout where the lounge with a fireplace, dining room, and kitchen (with an island, pantry, and scullery) flow seamlessly. Also on the ground floor is a guest suite with a double bedroom and full bathroom.

A grand double-staircase leads upstairs to a TV Lounge, a multipurpose room (fit to be a study, playroom or gym), and four bedrooms, of which two are ensuite, and the main bedroom is ensuite with a dressing room.

Clive, “The architects have taken full advantage of the north-facing façade using large, aluminium-framed glass doors, which allow natural light to flood in and enhance its already spacious feel.”

The lower level opens onto a manicured garden with a swimming pool from which one has a bird’s eye view of Table Bay and beyond. There is garage parking for three vehicles with ample uncovered space for guests.

A final advantageous feature of the property is the “ultra-modern” two-bedroom, two-bathroom flatlet that lends itself as a “highly Instagrammable Airbnb.” The premises measures 1 781 square metres.

“Higgovale offers unprecedented access to Cape Town’s highlights. To the South lies camps bay, to the North Lion’s Head and all—including the V&A Waterfront—are a ten-minute drive away,” says Clive.

Nearby attractions and facilities include the notorious Kloof Street, which features dozens of trendy restaurants, Table Mountain National Park, several hiking trails, Clifton Beach, Camps Bay, The V&A Waterfront, The ICC, Private hospitals, and prestigious schools such as St. Mary’s.

The auction will be held in simulcast (meaning on-site with a live webcast for online participation) on Thursday the 30th of June at 11 am.

Viewing is to be arranged by appointment between 1-3 pm on Wednesday the 15th or Thursday the 23rd of June.
