The Bo-Kaap features prominently on the social media feeds of visitors to Cape Town, with its neat lines of colourful homes climbing the flanks of Signal Hill. Locals prize the distinctive neighbourhood, too, as the birthplace of the city’s unique Cape Muslim history – a heritage that Longmarket Mews honours with its design. The historical setting is the bedrock of the estate’s multicultural community, which is united by enjoying a progressive urban lifestyle in this renowned part of the city centre.
The exteriors of Longmarket Mews’ 10 bespoke homes reflect the Bo-Kaap’s iconic hillside terraces, which residents proudly paint with cheerful colours. The two-bedroom homes are contemporary interpretations of Bo-Kaap style with their palette and architectural elements – down to the facades’ fine historical grain. Once inside, enjoy contemporary living in the neutrally coloured open-plan lounge and kitchen with oak-grained or tile flooring, which flow to private terraces overlooking the City Bowl.
