More info about Plumstead

The leafy enclave of Plumstead is renowned for its charm and picturesque surroundings. As Cape Town becomes more high-tech and gadget crazy, this southern suburb is one of the city’s refreshingly different areas; with its tree-lined streets, Plumstead homes still sport low walls and you will even find cars parked on the street as opposed to hidden away in garages. The residents of Plumstead are an equally intriguing bunch; here, people actually like their neighbours and it is not an unfamiliar sight to see people conversing over their walls about all the hot topics of the day.

Plumstead is a fairly large suburb covering an impressive number of square feet and boasts homes built all the way back in the 1950s and 60s. It is this attribute that likely gives the enclave its almost retro feel; not that there are not many homes with a more contemporary feel – its just that Plumstead tends to exude an old-era charm that sits well amongst people who are not that charmed by all the novelties and intrigues city life often presents. Another advantage Plumstead has is its very convenient geographical position within the southern suburbs.

Plumstead has a train station running right through the suburb and it also has easy access to the major M5 highway that can take you either in into the Cape Town CBD or out to the northern suburbs. Furthermore, Plumstead is in close proximity to popular attractions such as the sumptuous Constantia Wine Route and the breathtaking Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The magnificent False Bay Beaches are all within reasonable distance, while the many pleasures and delights of the inner city of Cape Town are just under 20 minutes away.
