Historic Cape Dutch Farm

This 330 year old Cape Dutch farm was settled by 1687 and officially granted to Jan Holsmit by Simon van der Stel in 1692. What makes this property significant, is that it contains the original farmyard buildings, situated in linear orientation. Central to the farmyard stands the 4-bedroom manor house, with a magnificent gable dated 1769, flanked by the small rectangular southern cottage and the northern longhouse pioneer building. The farmyard was proclaimed a National Monument in 1985, and thus all three buildings are of Provincial Heritage Status. Due to the historic documentation and vernacular worth of the structures, the farm is graded as a Grade II A, in accordance to the various criteria of Heritage Western Cape. The property boasts spectacular views of the western flatlands and fields towards Cape Town and the Table Mountain is also clearly visible. An established garden with many old oak trees enhances the historical atmosphere. Additional outbuildings on the farmyard include 3 vacant labourers houses and 4 large sheds. A borehole and sustainable fountain provides water for domestic use and feeds into an 18 000m³ earthen dam. 8 ha Berg River water scheme listed rights at 4000 m³/ha provides irrigation to ± 8 ha of paddocks. Situated in the midst of world class wine farms and tourist attractions, only 5 minutes from Paarl, 30 minutes from Franschhoek and 40 minutes from Cape Town International Airport, makes this property perfectly located.
