2.7 ha Farm in Chartwell
R 5 500 000
Plant vegetables lay out an equestrian estate (there are already stables) build your dream home while living in the existing house on the property, which could then become a guest house or rented out for extra income keep many dogs breed dogs subdivide it into three portions and sell off a portion or two .... imagine.
If the existing improvements are valued conservatively at around R1 million, the underlying land would be priced at a reasonable R1,6 million per hectare, or R1,5 million per vacant subdivided portion. This is a most reasonable price for land in Chartwell North.
Anywhere on this land would be a good place for another house, because nowhere on this land is there road noise. The road going by is used only by other people living along this stretch, and there are only a few. Remarkably, no sound can be detected from the nearby Cedar Road. This is truly a quiet, rural spot. Over the road is a working chicken farm which also emits no noise nor any odour. Yet within 4 to 7km one can enjoy all that a city like Johannesburg has to offer.
The land slopes gently towards the west, down to the Klein Jukskei River. The existing house is situated at the river end of the property. It is a comfortable 250 square metres under thatch, light and airy, yet still manages to feel cozy. It has features which are pretty and cute, and it is full of surprises.
The first surprise is the kitchen, which has been properly designed. Circulation is good around the centre island, which can accommodate seating all around it. There is an abundance of cupboards, even under the centre island and the drawers are lined with metal and fitted with strong, self-closing Blum rails. There is a glass-topped AEG stove with a lava stone barbeque grill built in alongside it, all under an extractor hood. To the side are two AEG eye-level ovens and space for a built-in microwave. The countertops are black granite which contrast well with the pale yellow cabinetry and colourful tiled backsplash to the hob. There is a hatch in the countertop through to the bin below, and in the corner is a prep bowl.
Leading off the back of the kitchen is a spacious scullery which can accommodate 4 appliances - a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher and a large fridge/freezer. There is also a sizable pantry in this space.
The open plan family room alongside the kitchen has a slate floor laid in an attractive pattern. This room has a closed combustion wood-burning fireplace and leads out through French doors to the deep, covered verandah alongside the swimming pool. The verandah is always shady even though this area faces due west towards the river.
The verandah also connects to the main lounge through a sliding door. Light floods the lounge / dining room area through a huge skylight. The floor is tiled with large, mainly white ceramic tiles, and another wood-burning closed combustion fireplace can be found here. At the other end of the lounge space is the dining area where a 6-8 seater table and sideboards can be placed. There is a handy nook for extra storage or from where home admin can be controlled.
The second surprise is the outdoor shower area set in an enclosed garden off the downstairs family bathroom. With the doors standing open, lovely breezes ventilate the house, and the view is of cycads and other plants, with no hint of the bathroom that is there, with its huge oval stone bath and beautiful wooden countertops.
Upstairs is a landing that could be a pyjama lounge or a study area, with a large outdoor balcony that leads off it. There is also a spacious loft area for a main bedroom, with a walk-in closet and a full en-suite bathroom. Another balcony leads off from the bedroom area, from where the view of the river can be enjoyed.
The third surprise is the basement room, always cool, with underwater windows onto the swimming pool, which could be a cellar and/or a games room.
Other buildings on the property include triple garages at the end of the long, brick-paved driveway, a staff cottage and additional garages without doors, with a good storeroom alongside. There is a shipping container with an unglazed window cut into it, for extra storage. Further infrastructure includes two boreholes with two water tanks, garden spotlights, a generator, an automated gate and electric fencing all around the property.
