Situated north of Dasklip Pass near Porterville lies this hidden 825 hectares of mostly untouched mountainous veld that stretches from the western foothill to the eastern foothill of the Olifantsriver mountain and extends down towards the Citrusdal valley to the north. The Olifantsriver mountain forms part of the Grootwintershoek mountain range and the owner of this once in a lifetime opportunity has the privilege to enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and explore the natural fynbos.

The farm is located at the end of a private road which is easily accessible via the Dasklip Pass and is 170 km from Cape Town.

All infrastructure is built with rocks that were collected from the mountain and not one brick has been laid on the farm. Completely off-grid, the farm is powered by means of solar power and a generator.

Water is obtained from a borehole adjacent to the guest cottage that has been tested with a capacity of 13,620 liters per hour and the borehole is 75 meters deep. Water is stored in 4 x 10,000 liter tanks. A second borehole has not been in use.

The farm is sold with all implements (ghrop, disc plough, grader, large rake, sprayer and 2 trailers), 2 tractors (an International 434 and a centre swivel Hodge 4x4), the current buchu harvest, various tools and equipment, a brand new backup generator as well as all furniture, except for small personal items which are excluded.

Infrastructure comprises of the main house which was built on a prime location with spectacular views. It sleeps 4 people, has a well-equipped kitchen (gas stove and fridge), lounge with built-in fireplace for the cold winter nights and a bathroom with a bath tub, wash basin and toilet. Furthermore a spacious guest cottage with open plan kitchen and lounge also sleeps 4 people, has its own bathroom and is situated next to a large oak tree which provides shade in summer. The generator room plus another storage room (which can easily be converted into another bedroom) is adjacent to the guest cottage.

Tractors and farming implements are stored in a 3 bay open door garage, where the workshop and a newly built storage room is also located.

A 3 bedroom workers house is built adjacent to a nursery and is occupied by a permanent labourer managing the farm.

Currently about 3 hectares are equipped with compensating dripper lines and are planted with buchu (Rondeblaar for medicinal use) with a yield of 14 tons per annum. Rooibos tea, chamomile and cancer bush would also do well in the rich loam soil with good drainage. A further 4 hectares of arable land have been cleared and can be planted immediately.

Farms on top of the mountain rarely come on the market and a property that is this secluded with such spectaculars views makes this a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The Seller is not registered for VAT and the farm is not sold as a going concern. A list of all movable assets are available upon request.
