Tucked away in a cul-de-sac location towards the Klein Drakenstein Mountains, this farm boasts exquisite views. The property extends to 42 ha and is approximately 15 km from the local amenities of Paarl town, well-known for its educational, cultural and entertainment facilities.
The abounding nature and untamed beauty make this farm a wonderful countryside oasis. Good soil and climate form the foundation to produce a wide range of quality agricultural products. Before a devastating veld fire, the owner had a successful farming business, consisting of lemons, guavas, oranges, wine grapes, figs and buchu. Present farm activities include 2 ha guavas and 0,5 ha lemons, under sprinkler irrigation.
In total, the farm has 25 ha arable land of which 12 ha is irrigable. Once bush has been cleared, approximately another 8 ha is deemed suitable for agricultural purposes.
Entitled to good water sources, the property benefits from the local irrigation scheme’s 12 hours per week registered mountain stream water flowing into an earth catchment dam while a perennial fountain (of bottling quality) provides household water of which all excess water is also channelled into the dam. Two concrete reservoirs exist, but need attention before it could be put into use again. An unequipped borehole is also to be found.
Two main dwellings adjoin each other with the oldest offering 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, lounge and living area with a fireplace. This house reflects some beautiful original woodwork, ceilings and doors. The second house is a 3 bedroom / 1 bathroom dwelling with a kitchen / open plan living area.
There is furthermore a shed, some outbuildings and 5 labourer living units. Most of the buildings on the farm is in need of restoration / renovation. As another house could be built, this is a superb opportunity in a tranquil and secluded picture-perfect location to build “the house of your dreams” and utilize the full agricultural potential to eventually live the “good life” that so many of us desire.
