Beautiful 32 Ha Wine, Equestrian and Guest farm with self-catering cottages located at the foot of the majestic Drakenstein Mountains.
The historical manor house was built in 1910 and consists of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, one guest toilet, an office, a kitchen with scullery/laundry and cold room, and a large open-plan living room with its own built-in fireplace. Leading from the living room outside you will find a delightful and extensive entertainment patio that is covered with a built-in braai and pizza oven from where you can enjoy fantastic views of Paarl Mountain and cool down in the swimming pool. The farm dam next to the swimming pool attracts an abundance of birds.
At the top of the farm, you will find the second house or the manager's house from where you can enjoy endless views of the surrounding areas. The second house consists of three bedrooms, one bathroom, one guest toilet, a lounge, an office, and a dining room.
The 6 self-catering guest cottages, all with thatch roofs, are nestled between a very well-maintained garden. Each cottage has its own private stoep and fireplace. The guest quarters have a beautiful private communal swimming pool with sun loungers to relax on those sizzling summer days. The pool is filled with fresh mountain water. The cottages can accommodate thirty people in total and have several types of accommodation available. There are four 6-sleeper cottages, one 4-sleeper cottage, and one 2-sleeper unit. This is a great investment opportunity which also includes the additional holiday rental income from both long- and short-term visitors/rentals.
