This superbly located property of approximately 24 ha lies in the Simonsberg Ward, minutes away from Stellenbosch on the road to Paarl.
The 10 ha wine grapes (4,5 ha Merlot; 4 ha Shiraz; 1,5 ha Pinotage) blend seamlessly with the natural topography and vineyards of the neighbouring world class wine estates. While a total yield of 70 tons is harvested on average, a further 12 ha of arable land has the same excellent terroir for establishing top class wine grapes. The cooler south and west facing slopes are ideally suited for this purpose.
All vines are under irrigation with water coming from the Theewaterskloof irrigation scheme (5ha registered against the farm) as well as a guaranteed 20 000 m? of water from a dam on the farm (further irrigation water is available if required). Eskom electricity supply is possible from 3 points on the boundaries of the property. A borehole for drinking water could be drilled at an identified site in the kloof area which would also be the ideal spot for building a dam on the farm.
There are no buildings, but a number of idyllic sites to build your dream house against the slopes to enjoy the expansive views, overlooking the picturesque scenery with Table Mountain and False Bay in the distance. There are no labourers attached to the farm. The existing owner is prepared to lease the vineyard if the new owner just wants to enjoy the perfect rural lifestyle on offer. Two or three houses can be built. Access to this property is via a registered servitude road.
