It attracts locals and tourists alike, with days out at Boulder’s Beach watching the penguins or canoeing/kayaking while taking in the wondrous sights of nature. Simon's Town lies only 44.4km away from Cape Town, and is split from the southern suburbs by the Steenberg mountains, and is accessible via Ou Kaapse Weg. Other ways to access this tranquil village is through Chapman’s Peak Drive or with the M3.

A well known landmark in Simon's Town, known as 'Sophea Gallery' is being brought to auction by Rawson Auctions Western Cape. Sophea Gallery has been run as a coffee shop, gift shop and gallery for many years. As a residential and general business property type, the opportunities for uniqueness are endless.

It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms , complemented well by a lounge, a dining area, and a kitchen with built in cupboards. The floor is either tiled or of a warm Oregon pine, depending on the area of the abode. The interior (and exterior) is coloured in an autumn pallet, which blends seamlessly with the building’s quaint cottage.

There is parking space for three vehicles, while another two, off-street parking spots, can be utilised if needed. Rates are on the lines of about R2500 per month, which when one considers the massive Erf size of 497m2, is nothing but affordable.

Tanya Jovanovski, Franchisee of Rawson Auctions in Western Cape says, “ The natural scenery is everywhere you turn, visitors and residents can marvel at the picturesque sights the False Bay coastline has to offer. Simon's Town boasts a number of museums, restaurants, cafes and gift shops, most deeply rooted in the town’s past. Additionally, Cape point – the southern-most point in Africa – is located just a few minutes away.”
