Stellenbosch at a glance

Stellenbosch might be South Africa’s second oldest town, but this picturesque Boland town is a vibrant hub of youthful culture, gourmet cafes, delicious wines, world-class sporting facilities and undeniable charm.

‘The City of Oaks’ was first established in 1679 and lies a mere 50km from the cosmopolitan capital of Cape Town, attracting students, home buyers, sportsman and tourists to its oak-lined streets and quality lifestyle - with its close proximity to Cape Town International Airport, Stellenbosch is also a popular choice for commuters who prefer country living.

Stellenbosch is one of the most walkable communities in South Africa, and if you are a resident in one of the sought after central suburbs such as Mostertsdrift and Krigeville, you could easily walk to the shops or your favourite restaurant!

Don’t be fooled into thinking that it is all about food, wine, and art here - Stellenbosch is not only home to the world-renowned Stellenbosch University but also a large number of innovative businesses, from the technology-driven to the creatively focussed.

Families fall in love with quiet suburbs and the top schools in the area. Die Boord, Dalsig, Rozendal, Uniepark and Simonswyk are just some of the areas that are very popular for family home buyers as children could easily walk or cycle to school.

If you prefer estate living, Welgevonden, Nooitgedacht Estate, De Zalze, Longlands, Digteby and Brandwacht on River could just be the setting for your next home - don’t expect homes that overpower its surroundings but rather complements it with its chic and elegant design aesthetic.

In areas such as Raithby and Bonniemile, you will find impressive homesteads on farming properties, offering not only a wealth of farming opportunities but also commercial activities such as wedding venues or guesthouses.

Jamestown on the southern outskirts of Stellenbosch offers a quiet rural setting with plenty of new and old homes to choose from - the suburb also boasts with the convenient Stellenbosch Square which offers plenty of shopping and entertainment options to residents.
