Muizenberg, a military base back in 1795 where the British defeated the Dutch in the battle of Muizenberg, became a prestigious seaside resort for affluent Capetonians at the beginning of the 20th century.

The grand mansions along the beach promenade, most of which are now beautifully restored, are monuments of this former wealth. Muizenberg experienced a minor property boom in 2003 when local investors bought up and commenced renovating the derelict property on the beachfront. The Lake Side development will certainly add to this new confidence in Muizenberg and will most definitely become a catalyst for other developments and restorations in the area.

The Lake Side, situated on the Zandvlei Nature Reserve in the old Muizenberg will appeal to the residents of Muizenberg who are scaling down and want to remain in the area in a secure development. The new development will also attract families wanting a second home or holiday home in a seaside resort at far more affordable prices than those available on the Atlantic Seaboard. The Lake Side will also attract the investors who will be aware of the rapidly rising property prices in Muizenberg and the fact that there are very few if any new, secure, up market sectional title developments in the old Muizenberg. Foreigners and expats will also be attracted to this colourful seaside resort which remains one of the peninsula’s most popular playgrounds attracting visitors from far and wide.
