Property description

Located near Cape Town in the quaint and lovely town of Scarborough, Fynbos Hill is an architect-designed beach house with spectacular sea and mountain views. The house offers four bedrooms with two doubles and two twins. The main lounge has fantastic panoramic sea views and a wrap-around deck with Constantina doors, perfect for whale-watching in season. There is also a bar, a TV lounge with DSTV cable, and a fully equipped kitchen. All rooms enjoy beautiful sea or mountain views.

Outdoor features include a gorgeous deck and outdoor area built to be sheltered from the wind, a swimming pool, a fire pit, a barbecue area, and a hot outdoor shower. There is also a wood-burning indoor fireplace for chilly evenings. The house is fully alarmed and has secure parking for three cars behind automated gates. Fynbos Hill has a fully enclosed fynbosa garden and is within easy walking distance of the beach.

While easily accessible to Cape Town and the surrounding areas, Scarborough is known for its quaint village feel. It's a place to escape, surrounded by the beauty of nature, mountains and oceans. The area is ideal for hiking, swimming, surfing and world-renowned kite-surfing. Also on the doorstep of the Cape Point Nature Reserve.

Car: Necessary

Scarborough is a seaside conservation village where nature is at its most superb. With the chilly Atlantic on your side, the road from Kommetjie winds past Witsands and the tiny hamlets of Misty Cliffs, a popular surf & kite surfing spot, to Scarborough, a beautiful Atlantic seaside village with unspoiled beaches and mountains. It is right on the doorstep of Table Mountain National Park with views of the Cape of Good Hope. Scarborough feels like a forgotten outpost, so enjoy the peace and the tranquillity with the luxury of easy accessibility to Cape Town the rest of the Cape Point Route.
