A piece of history, this is what you will find at the foot of the Du Toitskloof Mountains, nestled in the heart of the Drakenstein Valley
Dating back to 1692, we have a historic icon to offer you, one of the oldest and most historic Homesteads in South Africa, a scenic 20HA farm, filled with old-world charm.
This once is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire this icon which is a profitable and reputable going concern.
In 1875, this tranquil farm again stamped itself into South Africa’s history books when it became the official birthplace of Die Genootschap vir Regte Afrikaners, the group that fought for Afrikaans to be recognized as an independent language from Dutch. Visitors feel nostalgia as they arrive at the attractive thatched buildings.
But better yet, not just a farm, it includes a luxurious & elegant well-established award-winning 8 Bedroom Country guest house and one self-catering flatlet This Old Cape Dutch homestead has been transformed into a guest house that pays tribute to the past whilst offering luxurious hospitality for the distinguished visitor, retaining all the grandeur, style, and serenity of an era past in a beautifully scenic setting.
The opulence of old is captured by chandeliers, antique furniture, and evocative artwork, and complemented by tasteful modern touches.
The best of both worlds, farm & Homestead, having no equal, better, or greater than any other. Nothing has been held back in antiques, class, style, detail & perfection. A proudly South African ambiance, with breathtaking views over the Drakenstein and Du Toitskloof Valleys.
The 8 well-equipped rooms consist of 7 Luxury rooms and 1 Standard room all with en-suite bathrooms. The rooms in this romantic B&B in the Cape Winelands were all designed with comfort in mind for guests to relax and unwind with service perfection.
Rooms spread out across the ground floor and the first floor. Guests in the ground floor rooms will sleep under original hand-hewn ceiling beams, while the first-floor rooms are given a charming loft feel by the pitched thatched roofs.
Rainy days are best spent around a fireplace in the guest lounge, which is opulent enough for royalty.

A barn that is currently used as a storage facility but has exciting potential to convert this into a top-class function/wedding venue, which will be a great compliment to the guesthouse. Architectural plans in place for this conversion as well as an additional storeroom and wine cellar with production facilities.
70% of the Agricultural land has sprawling vineyards with cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, pinotage and Chenin blanc and 30% planted guavas. The grapes are part of a shareholder agreement with Boland Cellars and will be part of this deal and the guavas are decease-free, organic and in high demand.
The farm has more than enough water storage and capacity – a huge dam with water rights and an extraordinarily strong borehole can supplement supply if needed. An irrigation system is in place.
Additional Features are six workers' houses, which can be converted into self-catering houses for even more income.
The well-trained and loyal staff will be available for the new owner to continue operations.
This is a profitable establishment indeed and there is potential for substantial income growth out of current capacities. The estate is in perfect condition with no additional expenses required, other than the potential to convert the barn into a function/wedding venue.
This is a going concern – and includes all farm and guest house furniture and equipment – as is!
