Whether your dream home is a modern masterpiece or a lovingly restored classic Cape Dutch style property, you can find both and more in the stunning, upmarket suburb of Mount Croix. If you are yearning for an elegant home with an uninterrupted view of the Indian Ocean and the harbour, you may not need to look any further. Mount Croix is a well-established suburb, adored by families looking for upscale accommodation or those that just need plenty of space.

It is nestled in the heart of Port Elizabeth bordered by North End and conveniently close to Cape Road. Easy access to Cape Road means you could be at one of Port Elizabeth’s many glorious beaches within 10 to 15 minutes. Beaches are not all it is close to; there is plenty of excellent public and private schools nearby including; Mount Croix Pre-Primary, Erica Girls Primary School, Laerskool Excelsior, and Grey Junior/High School.

Mount Croix might be a family-friendly suburb but it is also conveniently close to a plethora of restaurants, boutiques, and businesses. If you can’t find what you need in one of the quaint boutiques, Greenacres Shopping Centre is just up the road and easily accessible.

While there are more compact townhouses for sale in the region of R700,000 and up, there are predominantly sprawling free-standing properties in Mount Croix. Luxury homes in this suburb sell for upwards of R2,5-million. Purchasing a residential property in this sought after area is a fantastic investment for any property owner.

Here is a last interesting fact for you: Mount Croix is quite historical. It is the site of two Nelson Mandela Bay memorials, remembering the women and children who perished during the Anglo Boer War 1899 – 1902.
