    Location | Lake Michelle Security Estate

    Lake Michelle in Noordhoek is situated in the green and peaceful wetlands of Noordhoek, a village on the seaboard side of Silvermine mountain.

    Approximately 40 kilometres from Cape Town, access into the city can be over the mountain and along the M3, or the more tranquil and hassle-free Chapman’s Peak.

    For those travelling out of rush hour a 35 – 40 minute journey will see you in the centre of Cape Town or enjoying the Waterfront. Rush hour can extend the trip to in excess of an hour so those in the know will favour the Chapman’s Peak route, enjoy the breathtaking scenery and arrive at work in about 45 minutes even at the busiest of times.

    Building style | Lake Michelle Security Estate

    Test Lake Michelle has been developed in two distinct phases and therefore offers two distinct styles of properties for sale:

    • The first, some 12 years ago, offers mainly one-storey housing and has an older architectural feel to it with large open green spaces and views out towards Chapman’s Peak.
    • The second phase commenced about 3 years ago and the properties within this phase have a more ‘New Orleans’ feel to them with cladding and raised flower-beds. The second phase saw substantial investment into walkways, jetties, a boat- house, admin facilities and indigenous plants.
