Dating back to 1920, the historic main house of 340 square meters consists of a dwelling with 3 bedrooms (2 en-suite), a guest bath room, a kitchen, lounge (with fire place) and dining room. This house has a high beam ceiling of which on top of that is a full length loft. Attached to the house is a room with a separate entrance, currently used as an office.
Other buildings include a 1905 built barn of 135 square meters (15 x 9), a 2 vehicle garage, a labourer cottage (occupied) as well as footprints for the erection of another 3 similar cottages. All the buildings are set among matured trees which contribute to the special ambience of this historic farm with its exquisite mountain views. Water for domestic use is obtained from a secured mountain stream running in a pipeline from the nearby mountains.
A 4 ha olive grove (Mission, Manzanilla, Frantoio) has been established over several years with the latest block being planted in 2016. An established market is in place to which the yield (between 8 and 13 tons) is delivered.
There is furthermore a 2,8 ha vineyard consisting of the cultivar Semillon, planted in 1996, while the Sauvignon Blanc cultivar is older. The 2015 yield was 46 tons and the new owner could deliver his harvest to the same 2 wineries if he wants to continue with the agreement.
Both the olives and the vineyards are under irrigation of which the source is a borehole with a delivery capacity of 15 000 liters per hour. The remaining area of approximately 2 ha is made up by fallow land, farm roads and buildings. Predominantly good alluvial soil is to be found on the farm. Eskom is the electricity supplier via a 3 phase 25 KVA transformer.
If the new owner wishes to undertake a comprehensive renovation project, he will surely reap the rewards. The property lends itself to various commercial opportunities waiting for the visionary entrepreneur to explore. Don't miss out.
