Luxury coastal living at Summer Terraces

Live (or buy) close to your schools, tidal pool, golf courses and surf spots

Last updated: 4 March 2024 

Perched onto the cliffs of Glencairn, overlooking the sea and Glencairn Beach and Tidal Pool, will sit a luxe secure development. Life here means being able to hike, surf, whale watch and play golf on your (or your tenant’s) doorstep. 

Summer Terraces launches 5 March and buyers get R250 000 off on launch day (priced from R5.195 million). You really need to see all the stunning pictures, and register to get all the info you need, on the Summer Terraces website

Glencairn is known for its beauty and laidback lifestyle (because of its proximity to the sea). 

It’s this sea that serves as a breathtaking daily backdrop to a home in Summer Terraces. Set to be completed in 2025, there will be just 20 homes available in this chic new development (two, three and four-beds).

Each townhouse will have a generous outdoor entertainment area and high-speed fibre connectivity. Discerning buyers will be happy to hear that every unit comes furnished with stylish finishes (think top-tier Smeg appliances). 

Being a gated community means there’ll be biometric access control and secure parking. Good news is that Summer Terraces is also a pet-friendly development.

Summer Terraces will sit right by Glencairn Beach and Tidal Pool, with Cape Point and Silvermine Nature Reserve a few minutes away (for hikes, trail runs, surfing, swimming and whale watching). 

Besides outdoor activities, the communities dotted along the Cape Peninsula are culturally rich and lively. Kalk Bay alone has a host of coffee shops, restaurants, indie bookstores (like Kalk Bay Books, with the sweetest children's books), thrift and bric-a-brac stores and art galleries (there’s everything from contemporary art to etchings, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, steel works and sculptures).

There’s plenty of community-loved spots in Glencairn too, like Deep South Eatery (a family-friendly restaurant known for its easy-going mains) and Blended Health Café with its nutritious plant-based meals. 

Summer Terraces will be within walking distance of Glencairn Beach. Image: Summer Terraces 


The Cape Peninsula is a popular investment area thanks to its possibility for both residential and holiday rentals. Investing here means there’s a strong potential for stable long-term income (the projected monthly rental is between R35 000 and R75 000). 

Plus, since Summer Terraces will be a newly-built property, buyers don’t have to pay transfer duties. For a R6 million property, this would normally be around R450 000.  

Any Cape Town tourist (or local) would be stunned by this view. Image: Summer Terraces 


Summer Terraces is launched by the same company whose properties sell out fast: The Sage in Sea Point sold out in 45 minutes and The Braemar sold out in just 4 minutes. Currently, they’re launching a luxe development in Green Point, Alto Livello
