To me farming is all about dreams. It is either about living your dream or at least creating your dream. In most instances, for some of us it will remain a dream but to others it is a dream that has become a reality.
This farm is situated on the famous R62 route with its beautiful scenery and soothing ambience. The property consists of two title deeds and is a perfect combination of opportunity, scenery and living your dream.
When my clients bought this farm (203,0023 hectares), they bought what they had believed to be their retirement dream and so set out with pure commitment and guts on a journey of perseverance & hard work that has resulted in a massive reward of accomplishment. The property itself consisted of nothing but burnt down remains & dilapidated sheds and a shell of what use to be a very comfortable home and the current owners really achieved much in the short time that they have been the owners.
They have renovated the building that was the original chicken abattoir and turned it into a cosy, very comfortable little house with everything you need in order to live comfortably.
The house consists of four bedrooms, one bathroom and an open-plan living room-kitchen area. All the cupboards are brand new and the whole house has been lovingly restored. Although small it is testimony to hard work and creativeness.
A very big outside shed provides ample storage for a whole load of tools, workman gear and implements. Although constructed out of corrugated iron, it is very sturdy and in an excellent condition. This farm was initially a chicken farm and the sheds are all still reasonably usable. There are also units for keeping a piggery as well as calves. Everything is close by and easily accessible.
The original walls of the original homestead are still towering over the farm and adds a whimsical touch to all.
There is a river running through the property however the owner currently does not have any water rights but a recently drilled borehole provides about 6000 litres of water per hour. Although the iron content of the borehole water is fairly high, it is useable for both humans and animals. There is a large dam on the property that needs attention.
The remainder of the farm consists of beautiful fynbos and has not been grazed upon for at least four years. Deep ravines at the back of the property provides perfect catchment for water and would be the main source of water for the constant flowing fountains as well as the little stream running into the river.
Although the farm does not have much arable land there are so many other opportunities to explore. With the water at hand it would be reasonable to expand on fynbos, planting and growing specific types and later exporting the beautiful flowers.
This is the type of property that you will buy to either keep for yourself and your family because you do not want to share the beauty and tranquillity with others.
This property would be ideal for you to turn it into a guest farm with cosy little wooden cottages at the back of the main farm where guests can get lost in the dreaminess of an almost surreal peaceful world, totally oblivious to the goings on in the real cruel world out there.
You can move into this property together with your family, your hopes & dreams and start earning a comfortable income from some decent hard work and a love of nature.
You retire and take things as it comes your way.
If this opportunity was available to me, what would I personally do? I would be totally selfish and purchase this property for my own use. I would keep the entire atmosphere and everything else that this beautiful land has to offer to myself
It is however my duty as an estate agent to share this amazing opportunity with you and believe me it is an amazing opportunity
