About this listing
Luchaire Estate - This most beautiful 25 ha country estate, tucked into the heart of the Bovlei Valley, Wellington, offers a dulcet lifestyle of privacy and bounty. Magnificent, mature oaks stand sentinel while the views towards Groenberg and the Hawekwa mountain range are expansive.
The farm is currently planted to 8 ha of vines which are trellised and under drip irrigation, 1 ha olives, as well as 1ha guavas under micro irrigation. A further 3 ha are currently being used as horse paddocks, with 6 ha under plough and sown to winter grain crops.
A formally laid out, productive herb and vegetable garden is situated off to one side of the home beneath a well-stocked trout dam.


The large, well appointed farm house, originally built in 1830, has been carefully and tastefully restyled to contemporary Cape character. The house is a ± 500m² double storey thatched building comprising a big farm house kitchen and pantry, boot room, dining room, office, guest toilet, lounge and large veranda. The main bedroom with en-suite bathroom is upstairs, plus a further 3 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a storeroom and activity room. A guest suite leading onto the veranda and gardens is situated at one end of the house.
An outdoor pool with an expansive surrounding deck is set in the gardens, perfect for relaxing or entertaining on the hot summer days typical of the Boland.
For the more active, there is a newly built, heated indoor Olympic standard short course lap pool and gymnasium.
The equestrian facilities on the estate are world class, with 5 extra-large modern stables, a tack room, lunging ring, sand arena and well laid-out paddocks.
The estate is offered for sale as a going concern, inclusive of all associated farm equipment.
