Land Area 180 ha

Lifestyle farm in flowing Grasslands Water Paradise. On the way to Nelspruit, just outside the sleepy hamlet of Machadodorp, and approximately 2 hours' drive from Pretoria, lies the farm Groot Geluk. Easily accessed from the N4 highway it is where Paul Kruger spent some nights on his way into exile, and where the Kruger millions are rumoured to be buried.

The 180 hectare farm contains a multitude of more certain treasures. 3 kilometers of Elands river frontage feeds a 2-hectare dam perfect for leisure boating or fishing. All the water means an abundance of nature: meadows filled with native grasses and wild flowers, duikers, and over 93 bird species, including a resident fish-eagle. 10 hectares of enclosed tillage, on the river floodplain are complemented by over a 100 hectares of grazing up into the foothills of the Drakensberg which adds up to a picture postcard gentlemen's farming estate.

The central portion surrounding the large modernised farmhouse has been tamed, and contains a late Victorian stone-built corrugated shed, maintenance workshop, tool storeroom, cold-room for storage, nursery with micro-spray irrigations and shade netted greenhouse, as well as a formal rose-garden and a lapa for socialising. When more people come to visit, there is a stone guest cottage overlooking the dam. And for the cold winter evenings, the house contains under-floor heating in all 4 bedrooms and the 2 bathrooms, as well as an antique fireplace, and another built in fireplace-cum-braai on the glass enclosed stoep, which also has wonderful views.

The whole property exudes peace and quiet and is perfect for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle, and live a more sustainable life. After a day spent tending to the sheep , have a sundowner on the veranda overlooking the dam, with its swaying willow trees, while listening to the calls and chatter of the birds going to bed, before stopping by the vegetable garden to pick some homegrown organic veggies for the roasted lamb dinner.
