133 Hectare Hillside Retreat

This Drakenstein Mountain Hillside Retreat beholds an ethereal beauty that photographs cannot capture! I fell in love upon my first visit .... driving up to the property from Paarl Valley below one enters a new world. It's close to all the amenities for a daily commute but far away enough from the “concrete-life.“ The generous 300 sqm double story farmhouse is superbly positioned on the land, having glorious ever-changing views over the valley too the two peaks of the Paarl Rock and beyond. Given a little creative transformation one will never want to leave this glorious slice of heaven.

There is enormous scope for other homes and cottages abound should you wish to share this hidden gem with an extended family , or turn it into a guest farm with a self-sustaining lifestyle. Wondering around the property one will have many creative business ideas The lifeline of the farm is in it’s crystal clear water that is fed from the perennial mountain streams into the 2 big dams and 2 reservoirs. There are also 2 bore holes that have never been used.

Historically , Buchu, Grapes, Olives and Almonds were farmed as well as a number of Protea species. Certainly one of the most beautiful exports of South Africa. There are large tracts of undeveloped areas of Fynbos and alien invasive species has fortunately been kept in hand.

The expansive property lends itself to both endless mountain trails with space for a variety of lifestyle activities like horse riding, mountain biking, running, camping & hiking. The abundance of wildlife has been preserved and if one sits quietly you might experience a visitor passing by within an arm’s length.

A few sticky notes.
