Goodwood is located between the Northern and Southern suburbs of Cape Town, about 10kms from the city centre and accessible from the N1, N7 and N2 highways. It is primarily a residential suburb with about 7 000 homes and a significant Portuguese community. The suburb is well-serviced by the N1 City Shopping Centre as well as Canal Walk. It has its own hospital and a choice of pre-primary, primary and high schools. Houses, sectional title units and cluster units are considered affordable and a good investment.
