Delightful timber home in the historical town of Philadelphia

Ref 391

Delightful timber cottage on a lovely plot, well positioned and in the sought after historical village of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is a town in City of Cape Town in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

"Village 33 km south-west of Malmesbury. Developed from a parish of the Dutch Reformed Church established in 1863. The name is of biblical origin and means 'brotherly love'."

The property is set on the edge of the lower village bordering beautiful farm lands, is fenced and enjoys established garden and trees.

Easy open plan living with 2 beds and 1 bath, and the cutest "stoep" to enjoy your alfresco new life! Roof is tiled and floors are laminate.

There is also a little water feature, indoor fireplace, and an outbuilding +-30m2) with two rooms, used for storage and laundry.

There are burglar bars on all windows and gates on the front door and the property is fenced.

Water is municipal and rates are fairly low around the R500 mark at time of publishing.

Walk to the coffee shop, enjoy the country air. Whether you are just starting out, thinking of building on, or wish to scale down to something more simple - THIS could be yours!

MORE ON PHILADELPHIA: according to an article in GETAWAY Magazine online:

"Philadelphia (South Africa) appears to suffer from mistaken identity. I discovered this quaint town a few months ago whilst on a Sunday drive. But when I mentioned Philadelphia to my Capetonian colleagues, I was surprised to hear that they either: (1) had never heard of it, (2) assumed it was an informal settlement, or (3) thought I was referring to Philly, the big city in America. It became obvious that Philadelphia in the southern hemisphere deserved a travel blog.

Situated just off of the N7 on the R304, about 38 km north of Cape Town, Philadelphia offers a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town. It boasts a quiet main street with two cafes and a few art studios, as well as a wonderful restaurant in a restored mill. This quaint town is a great place to relax and unwind on a weekend.

Established in the 1860’s by farmers not wanting to travel great distances to attend church, this historic little town has managed to retain its charming character. Many of the original buildings have been converted into restaurants or little shops. For example, the old post office now houses the charming Stroep Sit Kafee, the general store is now Magic Minerals, and the old mill, is of course, de Malle Meul restaurant. There are also a couple of shops along the main road that sell boutique clothing, crafts, and decor."
