This upmarket development will cater to discerning buyers who are looking for luxury property and a seaside lifestyle.

If you have been for a quick drive around Blouberg Village recently, you may well have thought you were in Camps Bay, such has been the development and upgrading of the area over the last few years. You would have noticed too, that the area enjoys the best views in Cape Town, all the way from Robben Island across to Table Bay and Table Mountain and as far as the Waterfront and Cape Town Stadium.

The Village along with neighbouring Big Bay and surrounds can aptly be described as hot property with high demand for the seaside lifestyle driving more luxury buyers and demand for luxury apartments in the area according to the Seeff Blouberg team.

The latest development here, Macaron Blue, is located on the Blouberg beachfront and sets a new development benchmark for the area. Designed by Mitchell & Botha Architects, it is modern and comprises of just six floors with 11 luxury apartments, ranging from 111sqm-187sqm.

This includes 10 luxury two-bedroomed units with only two per floor and the full top floor being an indulgent three-bedroomed penthouse. All of the units enjoy uninterrupted views as far as the eye can see.

Seeff Blouberg, as industry leading property specialists, have been appointed as Principle Agents for this benchmark development. The team comprises of Paul Klavas and Caroline Adkins and Caroline and Margie Mersich.

Each Ground Floor Apartment has exclusive use of a large private garden and the option of its own private swimming pool. The remaining floors have balconies that stretch across the entire width of the property so that the pristine views can be enjoyed without obstruction.


Half of the apartments face towards Cape Town and the other half towards Melkbosstrand while the top floor penthouse enjoys 360-degree views and enjoys the utmost privacy and luxury according to the agents.

The development enjoys top class 24-hour security, exclusive finishes throughout and is fully equipped with the latest Fibre-Optic internet.

Prices range from R5.99m to R15m for the penthouse and there is no transfer duty payable.

The area enjoys fantastic walkability with the beautiful beachfront just down the road and the Eden on the Bay and Seaside Village Shopping precincts just a few minutes’ walk. You can enjoy beach walks and cycling in the area and you are surrounded by excellent infrastructure with schools, shopping malls and other services in abundance.

According to Clinton Martle, Licensee for Seeff Blouberg, the area is now attracting interest from across the country and globe. Johannesburg buyers in particular are drawn to the area, both from a residential as well as second holiday home and even as an investment given the high demand for holiday and residential rentals in the area.


We are seeing a dramatic rise in luxury buyers in the area; smart buyers who realise that there are very few areas where you can buy so close to the beaches and enjoy such facilities and amenities, yet a laid-back seaside lifestyle.

According to the latest Lightstone data, the Bloubergstrand area which includes both the Village and Big Bay has seen excellent price growth with the selling prices in both the sectional and full title sectors basically doubling over the last five years.

The Village boasts an average selling price of around R6m for luxury homes that have, according to Propstats data sold at prices of up to R15.5 million. The area is seen as an excellent investment right now and that includes the new Macaron Blue, he concludes.
