This 140 ha farm is situated at the foothills of Perdeberg Mountain, an area recognized as being one of outstanding natural beauty. The property is in a rural yet accessible location to Paarl, Malmesbury, Stellenbosch, Durbanville and Cape Town.
The farm has been improved by a substantial double storey thatched roof manor house with 2 separate living units, the lower level offers 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 lounges, a bar, a kitchen and dining room while the upper living unit has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, an open plan kitchen, lounge, dining room. The manor house reflects its old world charm with style.
A shed of approximately 600 square meters includes a flatlet, double carport as well as one lock-up garage. Other outbuildings are 2 stables, a tack room and labourer living units providing accommodation for 5 families. Each unit has its own electricity meter.
Vineyards covering 13 hectares are made up of 5 ha Shiraz, 4 ha Sauvignon Blanc and 4 ha Chenin Blanc, all under irrigation. Shares in the winery to which the grapes are delivered ensure that all grapes produced will be purchased. There is furthermore 1 ha irrigated Mission olives as well as 4 ha permanent kikuyu pastures. Approximately 92 ha of the remaining area is flat arable land. The property has a large network of fully operational underground pipes.
The farm with its predominately sandy soil, is blessed with an abundance of water. There are 9 catchment dams with a total capacity of 190 000 cubic meters. Water is secured by annual water rights off Perdeberg Mountain to fill all the dams. Another water source is in the form of 23 ha water rights (83 030 cubic meters of water annually) from the Berg River via the local irrigation board.
Of the 4 boreholes, the 1 in use delivers 22 000 liters per hour and provides water for own consumption, labourers usage, livestock consumption and supplementary irrigation. The remaining 3 have been tested to deliver 27 000, 12 000 and 8 000 liters per hour. There is also a reservoir.
This superbly presented mixed farming operation supports a specific lifestyle and will reconnect you to nature.
