The driving force behind Wytham Estate was a desire for people over 65 to be able to retire within a neighborhood they have called home for many decades. The need for a secure and upmarket development situated in the heart of the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town has been a long time coming. Centrally located within suburbia, and in close proximity to all the local amenities, Wytham Estate is finally that place. A new place for you to call home in an old neighbourhood.

- Hospitality - that knows exactly who you are and how you like your coffee.
- Care Services - discreetly in place for when you need them.
The Fernery Conservatory Restaurant
Being the formal eating area does not mean stuffy with straight backed chairs. This area is green, calm and discerning. Meet friends for lunch from our Harvest Table or dinner from our A La Carte menu, with a bottle of wine from the cellar. Think of it as your very own restaurant at home.
The Lewis Library
Once the office of Stanley Lewis, the visionary behind The Foschini Group. A place for you to enjoy a comfortable chair, a good book and a flat white in front of a warm fire.
The Arderne Public House & Café
Sitting at the heart of the estate is everyone’s favourite social hub, where baristas turn into barmen. By day a sunny café serving freshly pressed premium coffees, and after the sun sets, a bar pouring smooth single malts.
Be it participating in bridge tournaments or just catching up on your email, the members lounge attached to the Bar & Café is the perfect location. Not just a social seating area, it also hosts a number of work stations to allow you to plug in and be productive.
Follow the game of croquet, cheering on your favourite player, or gather with friends and bask in the afternoon setting sun.
Coffee with visiting family or sit around the fire with a newspaper and relax.
Reserve this area for your 30 best friends and family to celebrate a special occasion or join us for a Friday get-together. Or simply relax on an afternoon perch in the shade, whilst enjoying the sitewide WIFI on your iPad.
With 4 hotel rooms upstairs in Highwick House, this means that visiting friends and family travel home in an elevator, after dinner in our restaurant.
