A nature lovers paradise and an exceptional beautiful property with 4,5km of Kariega River frontage, 1,35km of which meanders through the farm with frontage on both banks. The farm makes an ideal breakaway property for those looking to enjoy nature at her best.

Location:

30 Km from Kenton on Sea, 24km from Grahamstown and 28km from Port Alfred

Size: Approximately 179Ha

Building Infrastructure:

The homestead is located on a 4,5 Ha portion on the upper North-Eastern corner of the property, which the seller is in the process of consolidating into the property. The home itself is modest with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, lounge / dining room, family room, study, verandah and swimming pool. A large expansive lawn and established trees surround the house.

Outbuildings include a one bed flat, servants quarters, a double garage, storerooms with tractor store and three chicken houses. There is also a small pump house on the river.

Water:

Ample water with two weirs in the Kariega River that hold substantial bodies of water. The property benefits from Riparian Water Rights that require water to be let out of the Settlers Dam to fill the weirs should they run low.

Irrigation:

The seller currently irrigates +- 3Ha of lands near the homestead for vegetable production. However, an additional area of +- 16 Ha was irrigated in the past. The underground pipes and risers are still in place, but the system would need to be overhauled.

Farm Infrastructure:

+- 3Ha of irrigation infrastructure with pumps in active use and working order.

The majority of the farm is game fenced with the exception of a portion of the boundary with the neighbouring game farm, where no boundary exists as the properties allow free movement of game in a conservancy basis.

Services:

+- 25Km of relatively good dirt district road leads to the farm, depending on where one is coming from.

Cell reception on most of the property.

Two Eskom points, only one is activated and in use.

Topography:

Very variable from flat floodplain areas to gradual inclines to steep cliff faces.

Vegetation:

Numerous vegetation types, riparian vegetation and coastal forest along the river, sweetveld savannah in the valley, both sweet and sour Grahamstown Mosaic Thicket on the high ground and open grassveld on the cleared irrigation and dry lands.

Game:

The properties boundaries are open to the neighbouring game farm and the game moves between the properties, however the introduced species Nyala, Waterbuck etc. belong to the neighbour. Endemic game is common with ample Bushbuck, Grey and Blue Duiker, Bushpig and Grysbok.

Other common mammals include Cape Clawless Otter, Aardvark, Porcupines, Large Spotted Genet, Caracal, Cape Scrub Hare, Spring Hare, Vervet Monkeys. There is also prolific birdlife.

Livestock:

The seller currently runs a small herd of +- 20 Nguni Cattle, with an additional +- 30 Bonsmara heifers that are run on the farm for part of the year.

Other:

A stunning house site has been identified and largely cleared along the river.

Asking Price: R6 440 000,00
