157 Waterkant

4 guests · 2 bedrooms · 2 bathrooms
A sun-splashed rooftop terrace echoes the iconic shape of Table Mountain at this design-forward apartment in one of Cape Town’s trendiest neighbourhoods. Inside, the villa has a cozy take on the industrial look, with exposed stone walls and warm tones; outside, the city’s scenery and skyline are on full display. Walk to coffee shops, restaurants, and bars in 19th-century buildings in De Waterkant.
Warm days call for a stint on the rooftop terrace, where plenty of seating makes room for family and friends, and the views stretch from the mountains over the city. A second pergola-covered deck is a private spot just off the great room with alfresco dining and a plunge pool; open the glass walls to connect it to the indoor living areas.
Natural tones and organic textures give the open-plan living and dining rooms a low-key stylish vibe, while a soft linen sofa contrasts with the polished concrete coffee table. The adjacent kitchen is fully equipped and has a sleeker feel, thanks to flat-fronted cabinets and a surprise splash of metal tucked underneath the breakfast bar.
The surrounding neighbourhood features charming pockets of 19th-century Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture, along with independent shops, and lively restaurants and bars. It’s a short drive to attractions like the V&A Waterfront and the Table Mountain Cableway, and to the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton for a day on the sand.
