*** Cape Town Loft - Manhattan Place #1017  ***

Sold for 1,700,000 (totally furnished & ready to move in)

In the heart of Cape Town's "protected" area, there lies a bit of New York City.  
The complex called Manhattan Place was designed by architects who visited 
New York.  They copied the aspects which made the New York lofts so special.
We have one of the nicest and most "traditional" lofts in the building.

The arrow below shows the general location of  the "Manhattan Place" Lofts.
