Historic home in prime main road position!

Built in 1841 this historic home is the oldest gabled building in the town. Sitting on one hectare of prime land in the most prominent main road position directly opposite the Swartberg Hotel, the property stretches a full block to the easterly side of town. It can thus be accessed from two different street entrances. Previously planted to vines, with abundant water supplied by a generous mountain water allocation supplemented by a very strong borehole, this valuable land could be put to a variety of crop or agricultural activities. A grove of almond or olive trees, or vegetable gardens or tunnel farming are a few of the possibilities. The garden surrounding the house is large and informal, and boasts a beautiful old jacaranda, oak tree and bougainvillea. An undercover patio with barbecue provides a restful space from which to savour the ambience and tranquil environment………… The homestead was restored and renovated by the current owner, and it retains many of its original features, with exceptionally high ceilings, some wooden floors, beautiful doors and architraves, and Batavian floor tiles in the living areas. The bedrooms are of generous proportions, the main suite nestling beneath the thatch and rafters with spectacular views over the property to the mountains beyond. A separate building with facilities which was previously used a reception/tasting room, and cellar, could easily be converted to any purpose, including artist's studio, craft centre, work from home facility or similar. With the amount of land available, a second dwelling could be created with separate access and privacy. Given position, extent of the land and existing improvements, this one of a kind property presents a myriad of options for the creation of an alternative lifestyle in this most sought after of Karoo towns! NOTE: An application for subdivision of this prime property is pending!
