Lakeside Property Snapshot


(including Klein Wassenaar/Orchard Village and Zandvlei)

Lakeside offers beautiful mountain and lake views and is only 5 minutes away from popular Muizenberg beach. There are two local shopping centres, beautiful parks, a golf course, the local railway runs from Cape Town to Simonstown and is easily accessible to the M3 freeway. Whether you’re starting up or scaling down, this is a suburb which offers a wonderful lifestyle at affordable prices.

Due to the area’s many attributes, residential properties in Lakeside are in constant high demand across all sectors of the market. Because of the sustained demand for homes in the area, property values tend to appreciate steadily.

Apartments are in high demand between R1 -2m, entry-level homes and cottages start from around R1.5 – 2.5m, ranging up to around R3.5m and more for a spacious family home. In sought-after Upper Lakeside, properties can fetch prices in excess of R5m and are generally snapped up when they come onto the market.

I have lived in the area for over 30 years and am passionate about Lakeside as I believe it offers the best value in Cape Town – As Cape Town warms up we are seeing a fresh increase of enquiries and whether you are thinking of buying, selling or renting I would be delighted to assist you!

Lakeside area specialist Winnie Sass reviews the market in her mid year Lakeside Property Snapshot;

FOR THE PERIOD 01/04/2016 – 30/06/2016
Information sourced from CMAinfo and S.A.P.T.G

  • There were no sales recorded for LAKESIDE during the above period.
  • The following Sales took place in KLEIN WASSENAAR during the above period.

41 Springwood Circle R947 000
2 Riverside Close R3 100 000
6 Orchard Avenue R2 150 000
3 Twent Road R2 600 000

Klein Wassenaar is extremely sought after, with properties selling in a short period of time.


It is too early to say if the shift in the market will have a long-term effect, it could mean that Sellers are in for a slightly bumpier ride.


John Loos, a household and property sector strategist with FNB, notes in the latest FNB Estate Agent Survey that there has been a drop in the number of average estimated visitors to show houses, down from 11.6 to 9.4 in the second quarter of 2016.


There has also been a noticeable increase in the estimated average time a property stays on the market. This has
risen from 11 weeks and one day to 13 weeks and four days.

While the supply of property for sale in the Lakeside area will buffer a price drop the local market is never immune to the regional trend. Based on reports from property economists looking at the national picture there are more and more signs that sellers will find it more difficult to sell at current price levels and the period it takes to get a property sold will increase.

“Probably the best buy in all Cape Town!”

That’s what our Regional Sales Director had to say so act fast!

Green Home Renovation

home-renovationA case study for those contemplating a ‘green’ home make over!

The trend for green homes is gathering momentum on South Africa. With green materials and technologies become more available and affordable, one man has decided to take the ‘green journey’ approach to a home renovation in Lakeside. LLoyd Macfarlene has attempted to lower the footprint and increase the performance of his family home.

LLoyd was familiar with green building practices and worked in the broader sector of sustainability for almost 10 years. He decided to put his knowledge and patience to the test by embarking in a self-build green renovation of a 1960’s house that was in need of renovation but perfectly positioned in Lakeside Mountain Range.

After the home was purchased, the family moved in for a few months before the renovation began so that they could design through a living experience.

Aerial View of Lakeside

Lakeside is situated between the suburbs of West Lake and Muizenberg with fantastic mountain views of the Hottentots Holland mountains with the Steenberg Stone Mountain the backdrop and the Zandvlei wetlands in the front.

Lakeside is a highly sought after area which caters to both the upper, lower and middle level income earners. It’s an area that people don’t seem to move from, raising their families and only selling once the children leave the house. It’s an area where everyone lives together peacefully with lots of parks for the children and dogs within the neighbourhoods. Lakeside as an area offers excellent value for money with houses set in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood that is in close proximity to everything.
This area is also popular to running, cycling and golf at the Westlake and Steenberg Golf Courses. It is abundant with restaurants, coffee shops, strip malls as well as service stations and medical doctors.
Lakeside properties have close proximity to schools such as Reddam House, Wynberg Boys/Girls, Zwaanswyk, Begvliet High, Constantia Waldorf and the American School.
The area of Lakeside offers excellent value for money in terms of residential property and is the perfect area to raise your children in a relaxed and friendly environment.
