Located in the upmarket leafy suburb of Higgovale, Kensington Place is on the slopes of Table Mountain. The city, its harbour and the surrounding mountains are all visible from each private terrace. Lush quiet gardens and an intimate pool surround the property. The interiors have an unmistakable contemporary feel with eclectic African touches throughout. You can be pampered to breakfast in bed, on your terrace or overlooking the gardens, at any time. An urban retreat yet minutes from the city.
