The gracious Edingight complex was designed by UCT-trained architect, Alfred Harold Honikman who was responsible for a number of iconic Cape Town apartment buildings. Harking back to a bygone era, the high ceilinged, parquet floored apartments have elegant proportions and are arranged over two and three floors in blocks set around lush, mature gardens bringing a sense of Ye Olde English village.
But thoroughly modern in demand due to its location on the corner of Queen and Duke Roads, in leafy Rondebosch, its proximity to UCT and many top private schools make it a popular choice for varsity going students and families alike. Edingight is within walking distance of many of these educational facilities as well as the Rondebosch Library.
Made up of five separate blocks, each with their own personality, there are 53 apartments ranging in size from 71m² to 180m². Each block has its own gated entrance and all the units have access to parking or a garage, some even have separate storage rooms – a real bonus in this day and age.
Meticulous Managing Agents and an active Body Corporate ensure the complex is well maintained, managed and financially healthy.
There have been eight sales in the past three years – testament to the long-term appeal of these properties.
