PLUMSTEAD, a fairly large suburb named after a district in the London borough of Greenwich in England, is situated between Constantia, Wynberg, and Diep River in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town.
The suburb grew during the 1940’s and 50’s following the world war, and has traditionally been recognised as a stable suburb for middle income earners to purchase a home and raise their families. The residents are largely pensioners and young who have bought older homes and are renovating and modernising them.
Plumstead has good access to both the M3 and M5 making getting into Cape Town or to the False Bay beaches a 15 minute drive. The busy train station is conveniently situated; and the Main Road has a busy business community.
The facilities offered are varied and cater to most; ranging from the library and community center to the active cricket, tennis, and bowls clubs.
