This unique historic property is in a class of its own. With the R62 running through it – included in CNN’s “best road trips” list 2017 – the farm offers both a 3 star guest facility for 40 people and 70 hectares irrigable land for seed production (onions, beetroot, carrots, lucerne) under micro, drip and pivot irrigation, with water sourced from a huge dam and wells. The main buildings, all in excess of 200 years of age, comprise a Cape Dutch manor house, a farmstall, an inside/outside restaurant, bar and conference facility. There is also a formally declared conservation area for the sake of preserving the large variety of threatened, even unidentified, plant species. The area abounds with wild animals and birds, with special watering facilities for them and a cottage hidden amongst the bush for the dedicated nature lover. If ever there was a prime opportunity to invest in real estate in this unique part of South Africa, it is this one.
