Calling all discerning buyers!

Treat yourself to a visual and spiritual delight on one of South Africa's most beautiful properties mid-way between Durban and Pietermaritzburg. A true gentlemen's estate steeped in history with majestic homesteads, historical buildings, magnificent established gardens, paddocks nestled amongst avenues of 100-year-old trees and state-of-the-art stabling. This remarkable estate is currently used as a boutique thoroughbred horse breeding establishment. The stud extends over 24,600 hectares with paddocks under Kikuyu pasture with post and rail fencing. Shade is provided by magnificent Plane, Liquid Amber and Oak trees. Of the 25 modern stables, 15 are large foaling boxes. This is complemented by an equine walker arena. This property is so exceptional in its beauty and versatility that if not used solely as a “Gentlemen's Residence”, it could also be used as a Boutique Hotel, Exclusive Wedding Venue, or Upmarket Rehabilitation Facility with or without equestrian therapy. The possibilities and opportunities are endless. This is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful and cared for estates in KwaZulu-Natal and must be seen to be fully appreciated.

There is a formal lounge, TV room, parlour, separate dining room, study, kitchen, breakfast room and scullery. Most of these delightful rooms have a fireplace adding a tranquil, homely atmosphere. The kitchen has an aircon. There are two stove tops. One is gas and the other is electric. There is also an ELO. Off the kitchen is a courtyard which leads to the laundry and storeroom and there is a large garage for 4 cars as well as a double carport. This house is a grand old lady and has many unique and appealing characteristics. The rooms are all of a substantial size in keeping with a gentlemen's residence.
