About this listing
This 17.779ha is beautifully situated on the south side of the Paarl Mountain, bordering the nature reserve. It overlooks the picturesque valley, edged by a panorama of mountains from East to West with even Table Mountain & Devils Peak in the far background. The location amidst world class wine farms makes this property perfect to capitalise from the tourism industry.
The property houses the original 4 bedroom homestead built in 1769 as well as the Jonkmanshuis to its South and Pioneer building to the North in linear orientation. The homestead and related old outbuildings are well positioned amongst huge old oak trees in a rambling garden which was terraced by the Italian prisoners of war. The farmyard was proclaimed a National Monument in 1985, and thus all three buildings are of Provincial Heritage Status and graded as Grade II A. Additional outbuildings on the farm include 3 vacant labourer's houses (some already under renovation) and 4 large cow sheds.

A borehole and perennial fountain provides drinking water under gravitational pressure. Irrigation water is drawn from the ± 18 000m³ farm dam situated high up on the property and is fed by run-off in winter and scheme water in summer. Water rights are for 8ha at 4000m³/ha from the Berg River scheme.
