This exceptional agricultural and hospitality estate is accessed from the tarred R 407 just 35 kilometers from the quaint town of Prince Albert and near to the hamlet of Klaarstroom, and a relaxed 90 minute drive from George Airport which has daily links to Cape Town International and O R Tambo International in Johannesburg. On two separate titles, the estate is approximately 1600 hectares in extent, and was founded in 1841. The entire southern boundary of the property is adjacent to the pristine Swartberg Nature Reserve. Accommodation is provided in numerous elegantly decorated buildings, the most notable of which are two immaculately restored and preserved Victorian homesteads. Each has been sensitively modernized and upgraded, while still retaining their respective heritage footprints. These two exquisite homes have been furnished and decorated to an exacting standard, and each enjoys expansive living and entertainment areas with superb flow to terraces and verandas and private swimming pools. Bedrooms and bathrooms are opulent and tasteful. Additional accommodation is provided in five executive cottages with one or two bedroom configuration's, each with its own kitchen, fully stocked and equipped to the highest standards. These self catering units enjoy high levels of occupancy from a discerning clientele who enjoy and appreciate a luxurious get-away destination offering absolute privacy and total relaxation. Leisure activities include birding, hiking, cycling, stargazing or sheer indulgent relaxation of any kind. The estate could easily be developed further into a retreat or wellness center. Agricultural activities are numerous, and include 16000 olive trees over 25 irrigated hectares, with cultivars suited to the Karoo climate. The estate has its own imported olive press and associated cellar equipment, and a boutique range of products in addition to the olive oil, are produced under the estate's own label. There is approximately seven hectares of grazing from lucerne pastures and winter crops, and fruit trees include peach, pomegranate,lemon, apple pear and guava, and there are a number of table grape vines. The estate enjoys an abundance of water supplied from the Groot Rivier source in the mountains above the property, and the water is stored in seven dams. The water reticulation system has been completely restored and refreshed and includes gravity trenches. Electricity is supplied via two independent 80KW sources. Agricultural and related equipment is stored in one of two restored barns. The second barn has been adapted to provide temporary laborers's accommodation as may be required. The estate is sold as a going concern and is VAT registered. Quite simply a whole world in one!
