About the area

Upper Claremont's Hen-and-Chicken Precinct

Overlooking the eastern slopes of Table Mountain and the world-famous Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, the precinct of Hen-and-Chicken in Upper Claremont draws its name from the shape of a mountaintop rock formation that can be glimpsed from this prestigious neighbourhood. Peaceful tree-lined verges conceal generous family homes that are as sought after for their sun-soaked north-facing aspect as they are for their privacy and superb location in this enclave adjacent to Bishopscourt.

Life here combines leafy serenity with the conveniences of contemporary urban living. Most of Cape Town’s very finest schools are within a few minutes’ reach, as are the V&A Waterfront, the City Centre and excellent hospitals. The city’s glorious beaches, hiking and biking trails, superb restaurants, and the wine estates of the Constantia Valley are all at your fingertips. 


About the developer


With  a wide range of projects covering all aspects of building and restoration in the Cape Peninsula, Kevin Dore, Brian Rabinowitz, and Peter Truter have joined forces to restore the magnificent Greenways Manor House. 

Tony Matthews, formerly with The Murray & Roberts Group, the remaining member of the  team, resumes a relationship that started in the late 1990s when Kevin, Brian and Peter worked with the Murray & Roberts Properties Group on the DG Murray offices in Claremont. The trio worked with Tony again in 2006 on the construction of the Market Toyota Dealership in Dreyer Street, Claremont.

During their combined time of 99 years at R +  N Master Builders  Kevin, Brian and Peter worked on numerous prominent redevelopment projects, including the New Kings & Majestic in Kalk Bay, the Fugard Theatre, the Cape Quarter Precinct and numerous up market homes in Cape Town.

The developer’s goal has been to create a professionally landscaped, secure residential estate respecting the unique history and surroundings whilst creating an exceptional lifestyle for all residents.  The product offering encompasses a variety of residential solutions ranging from the magnificently restored Manor House, the lock-up-and-go terraced townhouses, or a bespoke freestanding home personally designed for you by the estate architect”.

No expense has been spared to ensure that the exclusivity, quality, and detail of this extraordinary development is carefully retained.  It has been, and remains, the wish of the developers that Greenways Estate will become a benchmark for future security estates and enhance the attraction of being a resident in the surrounding area.
