Conveniently situated on a gentle slope between Bellville and Durbanville, with easy access to the N1, the affluent suburb of Welgemoed is arguably the most exclusive location in the Northern Suburbs. Founded approximately 40 years ago, Welgemoed is characterised by lush green foliage and large trees as it borders a nature reserve rich in wildlife and bird species. 

Being an older suburb, it has larger erven where gardens of 2000m2 are not uncommon. Welgemoed properties include a large array of family homes; from affordable, comfortable starter houses to the more exclusive homes of ambassadorial proportions with A-grade finishes. Given the elevated position, many houses for sale in Welgemoed afford panoramic views of the Boland Mountains and can include outlooks onto Durbanville’s vineyards and as far as Rooi Els and False Bay in the opposite direction. Home to Welgedacht Estate and Kanonberg Lifestyle Estate, Welgemoed is also made up of the following suburbs: Oude Westhof, Van Riebeekshof, Protea Valley, Tyger Valley Waterfront, Loevenstein, De Bron, Blomvlie and Hoheizen. Outdoor enthusiasts will be delighted to know that many of the Welgemoed properties we offer are situated on or near Welgemoed/ Bellville Golf Club.

The intrinsic value and appeal of Welgemoed has resulted in properties in growing in value. There has been enormous urban regeneration with large amounts of money spent on converting older houses into more modern and contemporary homes. Value and real return on investment can be achieved by buying and refurbishing one of these few remaining older homes.
