Eersterivier, situated a mere 8km from the Cape Town International Airport, is part of Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs. This area forms part of the Oosterberg sub-region, situated behind the Stellenbosch/Vlaeberg Hills on the Strand/Van Riebeeck Road. Eersterivier was once made up of many different farms but has expanded vastly after the 1980s and transformed into a diverse and colourful community. About 40 minutes from the centre of Cape Town, houses for sale or to rent in Eersterivier are popular among those who commute into town for work as well as families looking to live away from the buzz of the city. 

Another reason that people are drawn to houses for sale in Eersterivier is the fact that the town itself is not overcrowded by high-rise buildings but rather conveys a cosy, welcoming atmosphere. Among the beauty of Eersterivier is the adjacent area, Penhill, where you can also find a selection of properties for sale or rent. Take a look at the available houses for sale or rent in Eersterivier below.
