Somerset West as an Industrial Warehousing Area

Somerset West lies in the magnificent Helderberg Basin between the Cape Winelands and False Bay, surrounded by an amphitheater of mountains, known as the Hottentots-Holland mountains. It is overlooked by the Helderberg (meaning “clear mountain”). It is an ideal area for both residential, commercial and industrial properties.

Somerset West is close to both Strand and Gordons’ Bay. With an array of wine farms along the main routes, Somerset West’s location is ideal for easy access to main roads and highways. This is ideal if your warehouse holds products that need daily transportation. Located on the eastern edge of False Bay, it is within 20 minutes of Cape Town International Airport, 45 minutes from Cape Town’s CBD, and a mere 15 minutes from Stellenbosch University, and the Cape Winelands. The area between Somerset West and Stellenbosch encompasses many vineyards, wineries and restaurants.

The industrial and property development has changed this view and transformed the area, its character and personality, from being just an area to escape. Somerset West is now booming on all property fronts- commercial, industrial and farming.
