Georgian outside Grahamstown

Not often does one get to market a 1456ha farm with such natural beauty and potential. The property is on the upper reaches of the New Year's River, which flows through the property, creating an oasis around the 1834 National Monument Georgian Style homestead. Hilton house is a magnificent double-story bow-fronted house, the best preserved of a number of bow-fronted farmhouses which once graced the immediate vicinity of Grahamstown. 'Hilton' is remarkable for its disdain for attack, no attempt whatsoever being made to protect it. Although showing no signs of fortification, the adjacent barn is fortified. Internally, 'Hilton' has a splendid oval entrance hall in the best classicist manner, with wall-niches for decorative sculptures or vases. The rooms are high and spacious, with fine fireplaces, and the staircase is one of the most gracious surviving in the country. 'Hilton' is set amongst tall oak trees overlooking 32ha of irrigation lands. A second house set in the park-like gardens is used as a B&B, with two separate units consisting of 4 beds, a lounge, kitchen, and bathroom in each unit. The property is home to St Peters Church (1877) although owned by the Anglican Diocese. Other buildings include a shearing shed, stables, garaging, staff houses and workshops. The average annual rainfall, recorded since 1923, is 416mm. There are 8 boreholes ranging from 2000 Lt/hr to 8000 Lt/hr. Game includes Kudu, Impala, Warthog, Mountain Reedbuck, Duiker, Bushbuck and Steenbok. The property has 3 titles (352ha, 599ha & 505ha). The other titles (352 ha & 599 ha) are basically veld, and the 505 ha has the buildings, river, and irrigation ground. In the last 4 years 1500 Pecan trees have been planted (12ha) leaving 20 ha still to be developed.
