Unique Charm & Feel

A safe, suburban environment with a diverse range of activities on your doorstep, from a fabled wine route, world-class restaurants to art galleries and theatre experiences, hiking, mountain bike, and horse-riding trails or simply rose gathering in the fields. Find yourself surrounded by the tree-lined streets, Victorian cottages, and large family homes all wrapped around the skirts of Table Mountain.

League Schools

Living at Alphen Glen positions you uniquely besides wine estates, the Kirstenbosch botanical gardens, various museums, hiking, and walking trails, horse-riding trails, and the Southern Suburbs school-belt areas.

With proximity to Wynberg, Constantia, Claremont, and Newlands you are spoilt for choice when it comes to good schools. To name a few there is SACS and Westerford in Newlands, Bishops Diocesan College in Rondebosch, Herschel and Western Province Preparatory School in Claremont, Reddam in Constantia, and Springfield Convent in Upper Wynberg, to name but a few.

Close proximity to the University of Cape Town (approximately 11min drive) makes this a perfect place to live for families, students and young professionals.

Exquisite Living

Covering such a large area, you can bet that the Southern Suburbs has its fair share of retail therapy, from Cavendish Square in the economic hub of Claremont to Constantia Village in the lush greens of Constantia. Out of peak traffic, the CBD is an 18-minute drive away along De Waal Drive, with panoramic views over the city.

The sea is nearby, the mountain is up close. Make nature part of your daily life and still catch an early morning coffee at the local spot after a walk.
