The Winchester - Secure residential estate in Main Road, Observatory.
Once in a while, a development comes around that stands out from the rest. Not only for the way in which it leaves its mark on the skyline, but also for the bold statement it makes about where a suburb is headed.
The Winchester is one such development.
Located on the corner of Main and Koetzee Roads in Observatory, this contemporary structure, with its clean lines and modern design, is destined to become a state-of-the-art landmark and add a contemporary energy to a truly iconic Cape Town neighbourhood.
Not only does The Winchester include the full spectrum of features, among them sophisticated security systems and a host of green design elements, The Winchesterit also offers spectacular views of Cape Town, and light, loft-style New York-style apartments with an effortless sense of space.
