Beautiful Wine, Horse and Lifestyle Farm

This 22ha Lifestyle Farm with Berg river frontage is located in the middle of the Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl triangle. The farm is divided by the R45 into two parts of 11ha each. On the one side are all the houses with small scale agricultural activities. On the other side of the R45 is the Equestrian centre. The history of the farm dates back to 1692. The original Long House (300m2), which is more than 300 years old, is completely restored and is being used as partly living area and partly as a studio for artists. This building can easily be transformed into a Restaurant/Deli or even a Bed and Breakfast. On this part of the farm there are 5 other well maintained houses, a 300m2 shed and swimming pool. All buildings, excluding the main house, are rented out and generate a substantial income. There is also a renting/leasing possibility for the vines and shed for winemaking purposes. The 360m2 Main House offers a large entrance hall, formal lounge, library/study, dining room with fireplace, family room with a wood burning stove, kitchen, laundry/scullery, 4 bedrooms (main en-suite), 2nd bathroom, guest toilet and 3 garages. The 4.5ha vineyards consists of 37 years old Hanepoot, 30 years old Riesling, Chenin Blanc and 12 years old Chardonnay. There are about 800 lemon trees (15 years old) and 500 guava trees (3 years old). On this part there are also some paddocks (1,5ha) and idle land. On the other side of the R45 is the Equestrian Centre consisting of the main building block, an open storage barn, an outside riding arena of 4000 sqm, a concrete covered dam of 200 m3, 7 labour units (all rented out) and more than 10 ha paddocks of which a substantial part is under irrigation. The main building block consists of a three bedroom house, a one bedroom house, two guestrooms (including bathrooms), 20 stables in use and a further potential of 8 stables, office, saddle rooms, guest toilets, feed room, work shop and entertainment area. The equestrian centre is rented out till the end of 2016.The Lessor can terminate the contract with a notice time of 6 months. The water rights of the Berg River Irrigation scheme are 10.1ha which is more than enough for this farm. There is an automatic system to start the pump at the river in order to fill up the dam. A borehole supplies 3,500 liters per hour water for domestic use.
