Property Details

We are proud to offer this truly beautiful farm as a SOLE MANDATE.

Situated in the Outeniqua mountains about 50km from Hartenbos and close to Ruiterbos, this farm offers breathtaking views all around.

This property borders the Ruitersbos Nature reserve at the start of the historic Attaquaspass. The Kamma river flows through the land and it is situated in a good rainfall area. Crystal clear water is always available being funneled and piped from a continues source in the mountains filling 3 large dams. No pumps are needed, everything is gravity fed and pressure regulator valves are in place.

The traditionally thatched main house is spacious, cool and offers high Yellowwood beamed ceilings, a traditional kitchen with wood burning stove and separate scullery, a large second floor attic, 2 bedrooms and a big porch with views of the mountains and fields. It has an adjoining large workshop housing the high quality solar system and more than enough space for vehicles.

A fairly new cottage offers an additional 2 bedrooms, kitchen and dining area and another porch once again with outstanding views. This cottage and the main house is powered by the solar system and the property is completely off the grid.

A historic stone cottage is also present, perfect for renovation, perched above one of the crystal clear dams. Other improvements include a large 270m square barn with newly replaced roof, Solar powered electric fencing around the main fields and house to keep critters out, 2 workers houses and another barn ideal for implements and farm vehicles. Another historic stone cottage is also present and can be restored a few hundred meters away from the main house.

Natural grazing is abundant and fencing is in good condition. The camps are currently utilised for sheep and a small olive grove is also established.

The location, seclusion and beauty of this farm has to be experienced, ideal if you want to get away from it all while being able to generate income with small scale farming or creating a niche breakaway family holiday destination. The price excludes VAT.
