Breathe in and pause . . . just for a moment and soak up the surrounds. Swellendam beauty is food for the soul. This 11,2 hectare Heritage Farm with so much history and character was a dream come true for the current owner. Originally built in the 1850's - the owner has restored this piece of heaven on Earth to its original glory using craftsmanship of the highest standards, all fittings were hand picked and have been superbly crafted.
The kitchen is rounded off by a stove for a master chef. The entrance to the house is through a wooden garden gate along a peach pit trail past a 200 year old Oak tree and a well established garden. This trail leads to a spacious terrace with endless views over the Langeberg Mountains, canola fields and open farmlands. The double story Heritage Homestead has picturesque Provincial feel and is restored to perfection. A spacious lounge extends to a family room with fireplace that leads to the large kitchen area. Outside the Kitchen area is a splash pool, fruit treas, fresh country air, the perfect place to unwind surrounded by a heaving bird song. 2 bedrooms on the ground floor with a gorgeous bathroom with a plethora cupboard space. The top level features a very spacious open plan loft area where the owners have created their private haven ....the main bedroom, living area, fireplace, beautiful bathroom graced by spectacular views. Outbuildings consist of :- - 2 large Stables (horse heaven) - a large storeroom. - the double story shed can easily be changed into 2 self-catering cottages. - Outside toilet, basin and shower. - undercover parking spaces plus an additional storeroom. - Another building currently being used as an office with additional undercover parking space for 3 cars. Farming Practice:- - 9 Ha is arable land currently being used for free range chickens (Free Range Chicken Business for Sale separately) - pastures for horses and a tree nursery.
Amanzi Matters: The property has ample water which is obtained through the river which is free running 95% of the year. - The farm share in an earth dam located on the neighbour's farm. - A large underground water tank has been installed catching all the rain-water. Electricity: Eskom Fase 3 Generator - 10 kva Currently, income is generated through broiler chickens for which established outlets exist. Diversify: A nursery where shrubs are grown to sell will give another income potential whilst the farm can be developed in a number of other ways to expand even further income possibilities. The property is sold as a going concern and the seller is VAT registered. The farm is situated 12km from town, and there are loads of activities and 'adventures' in the surrounding areas that must be investigated too Breede River, Malgas and Witsand, where 100's of whales gather for seasonal play, is certainly a sight not to be missed. If you are in need of a change or feel like getting away but still be close enough to town for comfort this is definitely your new place on Earth. WOTSAPP or call me too arrange viewings.
