A rare opportunity to own an exclusive farm with beautiful scenery and sea frontage
This unique property is situated adjacent and near to other game / buffalo farms and is equally suited for this purpose. The Rietvlei is known for its tranquil surroundings and offers absolute peace and quiet - the perfect place to develop into a guest lodge or to enjoy with your family. A mere 15km from Still Bay, makes this a great escape, but with amenities a stone's throw away.
The farm has direct access to an indescribably beautiful and untouched private sandy beach, which stretches for some kilometers. The farm reaches right to the high water mark and includes a private beach. Go for long walks along the beach and experience the majestic cliffs and natural scenery as if time has stood still for millennia. Discover a piece of history where about 500 - 5,000 years ago the ancient inhabitants built fish traps and tidal pools which still exist and can be enjoyed as a private bathing spot.
Enjoy fishing from the rocks as this area, Melkbaai, is very well known for one of the best fishing spots where you can catch Kob, Shad, Black tail, amongst various other species.
A stunning T-shape house with an 8 inch (203mm thick) thatched roof overlooks the entire Rietvlei and dunes with some sea views. All wooden beams are boron treated. The vlei stretches approximately 5km where you can spot and follow the game from the wide veranda and listen to the blue cranes and fish eagles calling from above.
This light filled house offers two spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a large open plan living/kitchen/dining area with glass sliding doors to enjoy the view from all angles. The country kitchen is equipped with an original Dover stove, freestanding AEG fridge/freezer (A++) and large braai. A double garage with adjacent staff quarters is situated near to the house where a separate room hosts an inverter system and batteries with a standby generator for the house.
Solar panels on the garage roof, in conjunction with the inverter, converts DC to AC (220V) plus battery back-up system generates electricity for the entire house. 2 x 5,000L water tanks collect water from the solar pumped borehole in the vlei. This provides the house with clean drinking water as well as water for the game/cattle (trough). Hot water is supplied from a gas geyser (12L) making this an overall luxury living experience in these great outdoors.
The farm has been maintained in an immaculate condition with indigenous coastal fynbos and land is being used for cattle grazing, as well as additional thatch that was planted to receive extra income on the farm. The game fence is newly installed and between 1,8m and 2,2m high all around the 73ha farm. This makes it ideal for keeping game or some livestock. The adjacent farm rears amongst others Sable antelope, Bontebok, Spring Buck and Bush Buck. Resident game on the farm include Bush Buck and Duiker. Nearby farms rear Buffaloes, which could also be another farming option to consider.
This versatile farm really does offer you the breakaway from city life and the opportunity to have your very own little heaven on earth.
