The South African film Paljas made by Katinka Heyns in 1998 was shot against the gorgeous backdrop of Toorwaterspoort at the foot of the majestic Swartberg mountains. The Toorwater railway siding was traditionally a watering point for steam locomotives of passenger trains on their way to Port Elizabeth. An employee of South African Railway Services who was known as die waterman resided in this cottage in the days of old. He was tasked with managing water supply to these steam engines.
The current owner had beautifully restored the cottage. Tourists love to hike through the splendid rock formation of the Toorwaterspoort which is a portal between the Klein- and Great Karoo regions and this property offers the opportunity to create, with very little money and effort, self-catering accommodation to hikers, bikers, and sightseers alike. The sturdy old 2-room labourer's house on the property is an added bonus and any renovator's dream.
This newly renovated house is fully self-sufficient and equipped with solar power and serviced by 3 boreholes of which one has the most magnificent, sweet drinking water imaginable.
There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms inside, plus an extra suite adjacent to the main building. There is a cosy fireplace in the sunny open plan lounge for winter evenings, and a lovely built-in braai on the patio to entertain to your hearts content.
Bedrooms have original parquet floors and full built-in cupboards and in the main bedroom added walk-through closets, offering more than enough space.
The modern kitchen has ample cupboard space and clever use of available space.
Outside you will find a neat chicken coop, a greenhouse covered with shade cloth and with its irrigation system for year-round vegetable gardening.
The 135 m2 steel shed offers ample space for vehicles and workshop use, and the Solar equipment is safely tucked away in a 22 m2 storeroom with security door adjacent to the shed.
The property is fully fenced and immaculately kept. A dream place of escape for the discerning buyer.
