A jewel in the heart of the Swartland

In 1655, Jan van Riebeeck send an expedition in the direction of an area which became known as ‘het Zwarteland’ meaning the black land that is covered by indigenous Renosterbos plants that turns black in the warm, dry summers.

The heart of the Swartland today is Malmesbury, a modern and thriving town that ranks as one of the five best managed municipalities in South Africa where you will find Mount Royal, a golf and country estate and other modern facilities such as the De Zwartland Markt shopping mall, new Crestcare Private Hospital and other businesses.

Mount Royal is a gated community about 65 km north of Cape Town with the N7 highway and a 50-minute drive to Cape Town International Airport and 40 km from the new Cape Winelands International Airport in Durbanville.

The estate on 109 hectares of land has development rights for 726 residential homes, 18 hectares nature reserve, 18-hole golf course, country club, and business park.

Phase 1 of 303 freehold single residential and group housing stands has been completed and the development of phase 2 is currently underway. Most exciting is the re-development of the new 18-hole golf course with an unrestricted view of Table Mountain by Robbie Marshall of Golf Data. Construction started in November 2023 and is scheduled for opening early in 2026.

This golf course and estate is truly the jewel of the Swartland area and offers great lifestyle and investment value with its facilities and close location to Cape Town, Winelands and the West Coast areas. The sales centre is open daily between 10:00 and 16:00
