De Meule - Secure residential estate in Philadelphia, Western Cape.
This cobble stone street development lies within the beautiful rural town of Philadelphia.
Once completed, the development will consist of 11 spacious architecturally designed freestanding homes and governed by the Home Owners Association.
Philadelphia is about a 40 minutes drive from Cape Town just off the N7 and 33 km south-west of Malmesbury. The town is close enough to work in Cape Town or the Northern suburbs of Cape Town.
Conversely you can take a more scenic 20 minutes drive along the Koeberg / Adderley Road from Durbanville through beautiful farmland.
The pretty, little historical town is a perfect weekend breakaway or to escape the noise and rush of city life after work. Dominating the town is the large NG church, just below this are a series of little streets with a couple of shops and the Pepper Tree Art Stable and Coffee Shop that serves as a natural hub for both locals and visitors to the town. Pepper Tree Art Stable, a combination of the art gallery, restaurant, coffee shop, pottery studio and gift shop, is housed in the old stables and serves wonderful breakfast, lunches and tea. The town really hums over weekends.
Expect to see pretty period homes, interspersed with a couple of low-key Cape cottages, people milling around town, and the more recent and very popular Die Malle Meul, a modern rendition of the Pepper Tree art space, also with its own pottery and a popular wedding venue.
