This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.
Experience an architect-designed, free-flowing, 215m² industrial Penthouse apartment in an historical landmark in the heart of the city. Three levels of living, a clever use of indoor outdoor space and views of the city and Table Mountain from your rooftop deck, makes this the perfect holiday pad! Great for couples, solo adventurers or friends. You will love this place for it's comfort, space, location, amazing views and the feeling of being in a New York City style loft...but in Cape Town!

The space
This beautiful, two bedroom, penthouse loft apartment is located on the top floor of the well-known, historical ‘Wellington Fruit Growers Building’ - a tall, narrow, terracotta clad landmark sandwiched between Longmarket and Darling street, in the heart of the City. Designed and built in the early 1900’s by Sir Herbert Baker’s office, it has since been revamped and converted into mixed/residential use in 2005.

You will fall in love with the size and absolute luxury of space - 215 square metres spread over three levels. With high ceilings and large windows, the expansive openness of this historic warehouse space oozes industrial charm, beautifully warmed by original wooden parquet flooring, exposed brick and woodwork.

Bottom level:
As you enter the apartment you will pass through a study area on your right, leading into the first room/bedroom ahead of you - with a comfortable hanging futon bed, a separate wet room shower with guest loo and large stack doors opening onto a sunny, central courtyard which serve as a light source, demarcating the various living areas and providing access to the natural elements.

On the other side of the courtyard you will find double-volume, open plan living areas:
A fully fitted kitchen with open shelving, equipped with a gas cooker and all the mod cons for happy holiday entertaining!

An oversized farm-style dining table in the centre of the kitchen with more large stack doors that can open out onto the courtyard again, opening up the flow completely.
Comfortable couches, sprawling rugs, a swinging chair and an oversized colourful bean bag/poof in the living area allow you to ensconce and escape into a good book or relax after a day/night on the town. A biofuel fireplace can be lit on chilly winter nights, warming up the whole area.

A storeroom with washing machine and tumble dryer completes the bottom level.

Middle level:
Floating metal stairs from the lower bedroom take you up to a large en-suite mezzanine bedroom - a glass box of sorts, with a ceiling of reeds and large windows which open to the courtyard below.
A large bathroom with twin basins and a Victorian bath, is separated from the bedroom with glass partitioning, retaining once again, a lovely sense of space.

Roof top:
A walkway from the mezzanine bedroom takes you up to the roof deck, which will make you realise why you wanted to come to Cape Town - fantastic views of the iconic Table Mountain, the city hall clock tower and the Stellenbosch mountains in the distance and the majestic Art Deco Mutual Heights building right next to you. A wooden corner-bench and coffee table makes for the perfect place to enjoy your first cup of coffee and watch the city waking up below you...or a sundowner of choice while watching the city lights come to life as the sun sets.

Includes:
*DSTV compact
*Wifi
*Allocated parking bay located in a safe and secure (24hr guards and FOB access) undercover parking lot across and a little down the road from the apartment.

Please note: The lift is being replaced and so will be out of use from 27 June to 5 September - this will mean you will need to climb a number of stairs in this time as the apartment is on the 7th floor.

Guest access
Guests will be given their own set of keys and have the apartment to themselves.

Other things to note
For stays longer than 8 days, a weekly mid-stay clean is offered. We can arrange additional cleaning or laundry services upon request and at an additional cost, if required.

Linen, towels, tea, coffee, sugar and basic shower amenities are provided.

Location

Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

This penthouse loft apartment is a chic hideaway in the hub of the city of Cape Town, ideally situated for city exploring but at the same time tucked away from the bustle of the streets below.

The Wellington is sandwiched between the bustling Longmarket and Darling Streets, right above the Eastern Food Bazaar with it's distinctive aroma and Bollywood facade. Literally a five-minute walk to just about everything - the Company's Gardens for some nature or a leisurely breakfast, Greenmarket Square for African design and curios, The Fugard Theatre for checking out local talent, Long Street with its numerous late-night establishments...the list goes on.

Fondly known as the ‘mother city’, Cape Town lies in the arms of Table Mountain, one of the world’s most recognisable landmarks. The city centre is an eternal mishmash of culture and the historical core of the city, where business and pleasure blend into one lively experience. It is a-buzz day or night, with a heady mix of culture, nature, history and an eclectic mix of people.

With a diverse range of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, theatres, and craft markets, it is the perfect base from which to explore the greater Cape Town. It’s also a chance to experience South Africa’s past with many museums such as the South African Museum, the Castle of Good Hope, District Six Museum, etc. lining the centre of town.
