I love farms, I love how each and every one of them grows on me as if it is my own and above all I love the surprise that I seem to discover when listing these farms.
I am a firm believer that there is a specific buyer or owner for each farm so I take it as my duty to help those buyers and/or owners realize their dreams when buying one of ‘my’ farms, But believe me when I tell you that this smallholding truly has it all!
Just when I thought that there were no more surprises to be had, I out of the blue was introduced to this gem and cannot wait to share it with you.
Imagine living in a 450-metre squared house, 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, meticulously kept and lovingly upgraded. Details and comfort were carefully considered and this house is proof that comfort and style are an unbeatable partnership. The views from the verandas and bedrooms are breath taking and I can easily see my self in a swing chair on the veranda, totally lost to the world, enjoying my own piece of paradise. The open plan living area boasts all the comfort any homely woman might crave especially those that like to socialize and entertain with family and friends. The loft provides private quarters for guests and family members alike, the outdoor braai with its spectacular views over your own personal dam were designed with hospitality in mind and if you are considering a bed and breakfast this is the place for late afternoon sundowners and early morning coffees.
Apart from the main house, the property boasts a very large and comfortable two bedroomed flat (124 m2) together with a separate cottage(52m2) which is situated almost on the banks of the dam and which also provides spectacular views. Then there is also 4 large garages and an arena close by where you could keep and exercise your horses which I believe is a must on a farm like this.
An electrical pump provides water for irrigation to the garden which explains the beautiful garden. If this is not enough there are four rainwater tanks (15 000 litres) to add to the upkeep of the garden.
The property has been totally fenced off with electric fencing, 2.4m high, which covers the entire boundary. The homestead, outer buildings, flats and garages have been fenced in with “clear view” ensuring total security for those that are security conscious. The owner was away from home often and this prompted him to ensure that he had adequate security for his family as the safety of his wife and children was an absolute priority and he did not spare any expenses in ensuring that they were entirely safe.
The dam on the property covers about 3.5 hectares and not only provides sufficient water for irrigation on this property and the neighbour`s but is also a massive playground for the children when they are not partaking in their favourite pastime of catch and release fishing. The dam is fed through rainwater running down from surrounding areas and to the knowledge of the owner has never run dry.
The area around the dam has a pipeline for draglines already installed and could easily be used again. The grazing consists mainly of grass and has fed up to 200 sheep.
This smallholding has been lovingly taken care of and needs someone to take it to the next level, up its game and polish the hidden gem.
I can vision an exclusive bed and breakfast, sought after and highly rated. I can imagine proudly sharing the comfort, style and elegance of this place with special guests. A boutique hotel maybe?
Or even a holiday farm as the dam offers hours of fun and games, boat rides, fishing, canoeing and even jet-skiing should you so wish. Another option would be to build little cottages around the dam, allowing people an escape from the rat race even though it is close enough to all luxury needed.
Or real farming if the need arose: vegetables, livestock or even hydroponics (since you will have water). I can easily see watermelons or pumpkins growing on the lightly sloped areas around the dam. A long-term investment would be fruit trees that will provide a forest like feel (if it you plant nuts) and add a whimsical charm to this already beautiful place.
Or you can keep it all to yourself and enjoy your little piece of heaven every day on your own.
Whatever you do, you need to make an appointment to view this gem of a place. It is perfectly positioned, priced and ready to go.
