Newstead Farm is one of the most beautiful of all the original homesteads in the KZN Midlands. Steeped in history this beautifully maintained and restored homestead dates back to 1874 and stands as an attractive example of the Colonial architecture of the day. With its iron roof and wrap around veranda, you will be charmed from the moment you lay eyes on this beauty.

Nestling in 12 hectares of fenced and watered paddocks with a fully irrigated and securely fenced orchard of some 600 Methley plum trees it has 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, most of the homes’ original features have been lovingly maintained and restored including original wooden floors and Yellow wood ceilings, large fire places in both main lounge and dining room where the once the great Winston Churchill ate. A beautiful original farm style kitchen comes complete with large AGA stove and there is under floor heating in all of the homes’ main bedrooms and lounge, to keep you nice and toasty through the cold Midlands Winters.

Leading off the Kitchen is a sunny wood paneled TV Lounge looking onto a sparkling pool with covered Lapa boasting a large gas and wood fired combination braai. A charming period wood burning stove adds warmth to this cosy room offering the perfect nook to curl up with a good book in either summer or winter.

A sweeping lawn leads down to a Bass stocked dam where a quaint wood and iron studio sits peacefully offering a wonderful private space which is currently being used as a gym. There is also a tennis court located within the magnificent gardens and lawns that benefit from a comprehensive and automated irrigation system.

Controlled access to the property leads onto a sweeping tree lined drive with pole and rail fenced paddocks on either side. The homes’ original period stable block consisting of six boxes as well as two recently added purpose built foaling stables, complete with CCTV connection to the main house as well as a secure tack room, make this an inviting equine property.
