Escape the rat race and wake every morning to the bliss of being surrounded by your own piece of heaven. Heaven in this case, takes the shape of 36 hectares of natural bushveld accessible from Schafli road just 42kilometers from East London on the N2. Historically this farm was used to cultivate pineapple from which the contours remain. A large dam was built by the current owners which is about 6 meters deep and has not dried up, even throughout the drought. A second valley offers a perfect dam location which would supplement the water supply if needed. There are approximately 2 hectares of land which has been levelled into 3 terraces in preparation for tunnel farming. 1800m of this has shade cloth structure and drip irrigation remaining from pepper cultivation.
The house is an entertainers dream, you will have an endless stream of friends visiting you just to enjoy your fabulous company and exquisite home. Thoughtfully designed, your guests will naturally arrive at the front door while the car ports are on the other side of the house for your convenient entrance at the kitchen side. The wide entrance hall invites you through to the massive open plan living area. The ingenious gourmet kitchen is set with bar height granite counters on the guest side to conceal the busy working counters on the business side. So you can cook or bake while socialising with your friends. A huge pantry offers storage for the many things you always need on a farm. A breakfast area and large separate scullery-cum-laundry room extend the kitchen and provide different, functional areas for the tasks associated with the kitchen.
The house forms a 'U' shape around a delightful courtyard garden which offers shelter from the prevailing easterly winds. The large, open plan lounge and dining area opens to both the courtyard garden, on the dining side, and a large patio fronting the lounge. Another room with a built in fireplace was planned as a bar-room with a bathroom off the side. It has not been completed as it has found a use as a workshop which will suit the hobbyist perfectly. Thrill your guests with a terraced theatre room complete with curtains to frame the large projector wall. The master suite is east facing so you can lie in bed and watch the sun peep over the horizon, then slipper through to the adjoining reading room for your early morning cuppa. The well sized en suite has a double vanity, separate toilet and large, lockable walk in closet.
The northerly wing houses an open plan study with shelving which leads through to a small lounge serving two bedrooms. These two bedrooms share a beautifully appointed bathroom and all three rooms lead out to the courtyard garden. The one bedroom has an additional nook for sleep-overs. Both bedrooms have lockable walk in closets.
The southerly wing has a comfortable one bedroomed flat with its own entrance flat. It is comprised of lounge, kitchenette with pantry, en suite bedroom with walk in closet, ideal for live-in parents or as a rental income. The lounge also opens to the courtyard garden so the flat enjoys all the benefits of the northerly aspect.
