Split into two distinct areas the suburb of Kenilworth really is a lucky dip with something for everyone.
Starting at the lower end which borders the M5 and stretches up to the railway line, Kenilworth lower is a mix of residential and commercial usage. Comprising 806 Full Title, 83 Sectional Title Schemes and 39 Commercial erven and units.
Kenilworth Upper straddles Main Road and encompasses the areas from the railway line almost all the way up to the M3, bordered by Wynberg and Claremont either side. 599 Full Title properties, 63 Sectional Title Schemes and 25 Business or Commercial erven make up the property mix.
Property prices range from R1 600 000 to R6 500 000 for full title, or if it’s Sectional Title you’re after, expect to pay between R1 000 000 and R3 500 000.
The big attractions of this area are its accessibility via all major thoroughfares – particularly the aforementioned railway line which slices through the middle, putting public transport in walking distance for many residents, the combination of expensive and expansive older homes in quiet leafy lanes, as well as attractive blocks of flats offering great value for money, diverse shopping centres including the popular factory outlet hub of Access Park, proximity to excellent schools and Kenilworth Race Course – home of the recently rebranded J&B Met (now Sun Met) which annually brings in crowds of fun-loving punters.
Kenilworth is bordered by Wynberg to the south and Claremont to the north. Kenilworth railway station is on the main line from Cape Town to Simon’s Town. Main Road (which runs from Central Cape Town through to Simon’s Town) runs through Kenilworth, and the suburb can also be accessed from the M5 freeway.
