A fantastic 3-bedroom home directly located on a vlei at Imhoff's Gift in Kommetjie, only minutes away from Long Beach and Noordhoek Beach. We call the house "BUHLE" which means "beautiful house" in Xhosa - and it is truly unique.
Living in BUHLE means living in the middle of nature. You will find it hard to believe that you are in a build-up area of Cape Town.
There are awesome views of the surrounding mountains and vlei. Birdlife, like herons, fish eagle and many other birds, can be viewed directly from the comfort of your lounge.
Facing nature you are lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea and the silence of the day is interrupted by birdcall and crickets. Enjoy the walk along Long Beach while watching the surfers or go for an extended stroll along the magnificent Noordhoek Beach only 10 min away.
BUHLE is nestled in the security estate "Imhof's Gift", adjacent to the greater Table Mountain Nature Reserve.
