Property description

Harbour Place extends over a sizable portion of the ground floor of the West wing of the historic New Kings Hotel, built in 1930 and recently refurbished and turned into luxury apartments. The apartment offers truly spectacular views of the harbour, ocean and Hottentot mountain range in the distance. The interior is extremely spacious with lots of light, high ceilings, Tasmanian Teak wooden floors and lead glass windows. Finishings are the very best, with luxury touches like underfloor heating for the winter months, Egyptian cotton, hand-embroidered sheets on the beds and Persian rugs on the floor.

There is an undercover patio with a gas barbecue and patio furniture, as well as a well-placed wooden deck looking onto the harbour and the hustle and bustle of the village. A small grassed garden has 2 loungers for reading and sunbathing. A great favourite with guests is the one-way smoked glass corner bay window that looks onto the passing parade in Windsor street. Here, one can spend a an entire afternoon 'people watching' from the comfort of a quiet corner in the living room.

As part of the prestigious 'Majestic Village' (a cluster of restored historical buildings in Kalk Bay), guests have free and private access to the sparkling outdoor swimming pool, as well as the gym, sauna and steam room at the Spa on the premises. Guests also have their own basement parking bay and a key to the laundry, where they can do personal washing.

The apartment enjoys 24-hour security, and has an alarm system with a direct link to the security guard at the main entrance.

HARBOUR PLACE HAS BEEN SELECTED AS ONE OF THE PRESTIGIOUS 'DECOREX CAPE DESIGNER STAYS' for its eclectic decor with original South African art en local flavour.

Location

Kalk Bay is a very unique suburb of Cape Town - one of the few working fishing harbours in the Western Cape. The village is full of wonderful world-class restaurants, galleries, arts & crafts, antiques etc. There are 5 excellent beaches within walking distance or a short train ride. (The station is a 3 minute walk from Harbour Place). Cape Town city bowl is 20 minutes by car, 40 minutes by train.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I live in Krugersdorp, a mining town near Johannesburg. He is a surgeon at the local hospital, I'm an advertising copywriter, and the little spare time we have, is mostly devoted to our 11 year old daughter, Mia.

Why the Owner Chose Cape Town:
We fell in love with Kalk Bay on our first visit there - it's one of the last remaining working fishing villages on the Cape Coast and a true Bohemia of artists, writers, fishermen, food lovers, fashion and jewellery designers, etc. We waited for the right property to come up for sale and when it did, we seized the opportunity to invest in a piece of heaven right on the edge of the ocean. Our apartment is part of the refurbished historic part of Kalk Bay, and truly special with its uninterrupted views of the Harbour and Hottentot mountains beyond. We found the perfect manager in Suzaan Fourie, our hands-on person in Kalk Bay who takes care of the day to day running of our apartment.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Harbour Place combines a traditional beach holiday with all the quirkiness associated with a small fishing village. Here you can choose between several excellent swimming beaches and tidal pools, but you can also spend the day exploring the many art galleries, craft shops, book stores, antique shops, jewelers and potters etc. Hungry? There are over 20 excellent restaurants within a radius of 2 km. Some of them, like The Olympia Cafe (our next door neighbour) and Harbour House, are known far and wide for their excellent cuisine. Hop on the train (just 100m from the apartment) enjoy a 30 minute ride to the centre of Cape Town, Table Mountain and all its activities and sights. Take the train in the opposite direction, and visit the penguin colony on Boulders Beach, or check out the Naval Museum in Simon's town. The ride itself is an experience, with the train snaking along the breath-taking coastline of False Bay. In August and September, you can enjoy whale watching from the apartment's wooden deck. There is so much to do in this rather colourful corner of the Cape!
