Small Holding in the Banhoek Valley - 1,7ha

Video footage available

It is once in a lifetime that properties like this become available at in the Banhoek Valley.

Tucked away amongst mountain ranges, fruit orchards and vineyards this spectacular eco friendly wooden home and piece of land is one of a kind.

This is a must see!

The owner has already cleared the plot of a wide range of invasive alien plants, removing literally hundreds of water-hungry invasive tree species like wattles, poplars and many old, enormous blue gum stumps, restored the river bank, put in a road that could take the weight of trucks, had an incredibly deep and complex borehole drilled to get through the layer of huge river boulders which line the valley subsoil, installed sufficient water tank storage on a secure base to last many months, built an eco-friendly wooden house on a wooden stilt-and-deck structure so as not to poison the earth with foundations (and wooden houses built in this way are in fact more fire resistant than brick and mortar, as certified by US tests where wood building is very popular), they rebuilt the septic tank and put in grey water reticulation for further water saving, plus planted over two hundred indigenous and area-appropriate trees and shrubs. They also situated the house so that enough of the plot would remain available for a small scale farming project (blueberries or hydroponic lettuces in mind), and positioned the water collection tanks so that a gravity feed system (and not electricity) could be used to get the water to the farming area lower down on the plot. You can see they had eco-friendly thinking in mind, throughout.

The house also has windows which are over a hundred years old and beautifully restored, salvaged from a demolished Cape farmhouse, a complete set of Art Deco light fittings, hardwood flooring, interior gas installation and a Belgian wood/anthracite fireplace with exposed flue downstairs and upstairs to maximise heat generation and coat-effective fuel use.

What more could you ask for?

The home has loving tenants living in it for the last 6 years and would be really sad to move however the time has come for the owner to sell.

Experience Stellenbosch

Oak trees, historic buildings, students, green spaces, cafés and lots of great wine are among the first impressions of this buzzing university town, but there’s much more to life in Stellenbosch than its undeniable picture-postcard charm
