Living at Cape Town’s Victoria and Alfred Waterfront marina is synonymous with a trendy and vibrant lifestyle suited to those who enjoy easy city living in a scenic setting.
This world-class location provides residents with the opportunity to freely explore the city of Cape Town from a centrally located base. From this location everyday shopping and entertainment facilities are perfectly accessible, and exclusive tourist adventures and excursions can be found here as well.
While enjoying the interior comforts of this waterfront penthouse, magnificent views of the marina are made visible through spacious floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors. This setting caters for all seasons in the Cape, with every comfort to contain the summer wind and heat, as well as the chilly north-westerly breeze during winter. Zesty summer months can be spent leisurely at the communal pool or on the outdoor verandah where the views of the marina will provide the relaxation needed for rejuvenation. The bright insulated interiors are generously spaced to accommodate families of up to six people in three bedrooms.
The contemporary-style interior with a flowing design between indoor and outdoor spaces lends itself to easy entertainment all year round. The sumptuous Poggenpohl designer kitchen fitted with a fine selection of Miele appliances is enough to lure those with a fondness for culinary art to experiment with their favourite recipes. One of the many practical design elements of this apartment is a scullery that separates the cooking and cleaning facilities.
The living area incorporates two spacious reception rooms as well as a dining room, furnished in a stylish fashion with textures and finishes to suit the restful ambience. Practical additions such as the cloakroom and a separate storeroom provide additional space when needed. Another great facility is the two underground parking spaces with lifts to the apartment which, during Cape Town winters, provide an added comfort.
Located centrally, just 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and 10 minutes from the Atlantic Seaboard, this luxury apartment provides every conceivable holiday pleasure.
