Merville - The ultimate African Retreat.

This unique property features breathtaking views of the Kariega River gorge, vertical cliffs, ancient yellowwood trees, and hundreds of naturally occurring palm trees that line the deep pools and river bank. This beautiful property is situated on the Kariega River adjoining Kariega Game Reserve. The property consists of 2 titles, one being 300 ha in extent and the other being 225 ha. They have recently been granted consent to be subdivided and consolidated which officially will occur simultaneously when sold into the new Owners entity. These titles could be purchased separately but should transfer together. The Kariega Palms residence offers seclusion, privacy and serenity in an untouched wilderness. This property has some magnificent pools and permanent water of the Kariega River with rock cliff faces which are lined with Palm and Yellowwood trees. The buildings are situated on the banks of the Kariega River in an area with grassed lawns, a swimming pool, and established trees that attract birds, game, and even otters at times. The area around the house has an electric fence while the balance of the 225 ha is game fenced. The main thatched dwelling consists of three bedrooms all with doors leading out onto a wooden veranda. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with beautiful, fitted cupboards and a walk-in safe. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom and guest toilet. The lounge area has a wooden fireplace leading onto the veranda and a circular stairway that leads upstairs to an area that combines as an ideal study and gym. The fitted kitchen with a scullery leads into a dining room. This building has a generator as well as an inverter with an underground 35 000l tank. Other buildings include two two-bedroom flats with their own lounge and kitchenette areas as well as a large garage/workshop and parking. No staff are presently living on the property but accommodation does exist. Game includes 8 Giraffes as well as Zebra, Impala, Nyala, Waterbuck, Blesbuck and naturally occurring Bushbuck. This property is advertised for Sale which will include both titles. The 300 ha portion could be sold separately as it is presently leased (6 months' notice period) to a neighbouring cattle farmer and is ideally suited for cattle farming. All fixtures and furnishings are included in the sale except for some personal items.
