110 SQM LOFT OVER TWO LEVELS

Once the home of factories and light industry that fueled the local economy, the spaces of 5 Howe Street, Observatory have been repurposed as homes and creative spaces. Industrial features such as soaring ceilings and large metal windows once brought natural light and air to the workshops.

Situated on the North-facing side of a sought-after complex in the colourful neighborhood of Observatory, this light-filled, original industrial loft offers high ceiling over two levels, with sweeping views from a small private balcony. It is now so peaceful, it is hard to imagine the hustle and bustle of the workers of years gone by.

Downstairs you have open plan lounge, kitchen and bathroom. A spiral staircase leads to the high-ceiling bedroom with ample built-in cupboard space.

This is a 24 hour security block with a lift., and the loft comes with designated, secure off-street parking.

With it’s funky restaurants, bars, boutiques and bookstores, Observatory stands apart from much of the rest of Cape Town in that it boasts a vibrant street life, where the community of artists, students, and multi-national visitors spend much of their time in the coffee shops, swapping stories and sipping wine.

Observatory is located close to the CBD, and both National roads. Newlands Forest, the City Centre, and the beaches of the Atlantic Seaboard are all close at hand.

This property is perfectly suited as a lock-up and go for a Cape Town “Swallow”, (European summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and Southern Hemisphere summer in Cape Town), a pied-a-terre for work-from-homers who have moved away from the city, or a live/work situation for an artist or creative. Please contact us to view this must-see loft.
