Karoo break away

Situated less than 2 kilometers from a tarred road, this property offers a perfect break away into the Karoo. More than twelve kilometers of river front on the Buffels River not only offers spectacular rock formations and views, but also access to ample water for irrigation. With 7 ha of olives (80% oil and 20% table olives), 0,7 ha Shiraz grapes for wine making, 5,5 ha under pivot irrigation (perfect for onions or lucerne) and another ± 8 ha arable land the property also gives you an opportunity towards commercial farming. The rest of the farm consists of natural veld, perfectly suited for cattle, game, goats or sheep. Kudu, eland and several smaller buck species are roaming wild on the farm. With the Anysberg Nature Reserve across the Buffels River, the farm offers lots of potential to develop into a tourist attraction, that being weekend cottages, tented camps or rustic camping in secluded spots on the farm. The area is perfectly suited to develop hiking trails, mountain bike tracks or 4 x 4 routes. The main dwelling spans over ± 320 square meters and was designed in an H shape in a modern Cape Dutch style. The house has 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms. A second house (60% towards full restoration) also has three bedroom. Two cottages (former labour cottages and 60% renovated) offer excellent potential for weekend accommodation. Two additional and adjoining cottages (one bedroom each) offer rustic accommodation once completed. A barn (± 400 square meters) provides sufficient storage room for farming machinery and equipment. Water for irrigation and / or animal consumption is sourced from a 17,2 ha listing under the Buffels River Irrigation Board and 7 boreholes. Currently water is only sourced from one of the boreholes, fully equipped and yielding 40 000 liter per hour. None of the other boreholes are in use, but offers lots of potential for further development. Electricity supply is from Eskom with several connection points in different locations on the farm. The property is registered in a private company (registered for VAT) and is offered as a going concern.
