In 2014, we purchased this grand old lady on auction which was run down and tired. Being UCT graduates ourselves, it was fitting that the property is situated within walking distance of UCT’s campuses and opposite the Baxter Theatre, one of Cape Town’s most famous performing arts venues. In addition, one can also take a two-minute stroll up to the grocery store, pharmacy, fast-food restaurants and coffee shops.

We set about rejuvenating the property and in 2016 we launched Nursery Square which now boasts seven apartments, two houses and a shop. The houses and apartments are modern and fitted with quality finishes. The hot water cylinders are solar powered and energy efficient.

Our property is suitable for students and young professionals. Whether you are looking for accommodation for yourself or for you and a friend/s, we will assist in placing you accordingly. This applies to both our rooms in the houses and rooms in the apartments. Our leases typically run for 12 months from 1 February to 31 January, however we will try accommodate special requests where possible and subject to availability.


Each house has four bedrooms, an open plan lounge & dining room, a large kitchen and a classic Victorian front porch as well as a backyard to “braai” or as they say everywhere else in the world, “barbeque”! Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom which has a shower, basin and toilet. Our houses are fully furnished from top to bottom. The only extras you will need is bed linen and towels. We take care of the rest. The rooms are ideal for students and the common area is a great space to study or chill with your friends.


Two of our downstairs units each have two bedrooms and one bathroom to share (shower, basin & toilet). The third unit has an extra toilet and basin.
All four of our upstairs units lead onto a large common balcony overlooking the Baxter Theatre as well as partial mountain views. Three of the units have two bedrooms and one bathroom to share (shower, basin & toilet). The fourth unit has an extra toilet and basin.

All units are also fully furnished and exclude linen and towels. The common area has an open plan kitchen & lounge with a slick countertop for meals.



We’d love to hear from you.

    Thank you.
