Tulbagh,Western Cape - Boland
A 14 ha farm with a double-storey office block and a 960 sq.m mansion in one of the most beautiful settings in the region. The 10 ha farming land is perfect for hydroponic farming (e.g. blueberries) or for horses. It has 10 hectare (8,500 cub m) water usage rights from the Huisriver Water Scheme. It has previously been a part of a top table grapes producing farm - which has been subdivided and sold off. The owner is willing to develop 3 ha of blueberries on the farm for a 50% share in the project (details to be discussed & agree upon). The house is set in a secure and landscaped garden with expansive lawns between an array of different trees and shrubs - truly an inspiring setting. The house's living areas flow out onto a pool with the most beautiful mountain, dam and garden views. Both the office block (260 sq.m) - which is located at the entrance gate to the property (a few hundred meters away from the main house) and the main house is protected by an electrical fence. The paved driveway up to main house is lined by trees and ends at a covered front door reception area and fountain. The office block offers an executive office on the top floor with arced floor to ceiling windows looking out over a beautiful dam and the surrounding mountains, The boardroom has a bar area. Three under roof parking lots are available at the front door. The reception area leads to a safe room, a kitchen and a well laid out shared office. The house has been meticulously designed to provide ample living and entertaining space for an extensive family - without neglecting private spaces for everyone. Different and private entrances to the house ensures that some wings of the house are even perfect for teenagers! One of the wings has its own sitting room for the 2 en-suite bedrooms. A large under roof outside braai area next to the pool can seat an array of family and friends during summer. An indoor braai room adjacent to the outside braai area, makes the perfect winter entertainment area - complete with its own bar which is connected to the kitchen area with a hatchet. A foyer leads to a sitting or reception room which flows out to the garden. An en-suite guestroom is available in this area of the house - which also includes a separate dining room. The ground floor also has a TV room with built-in wooden book shelves as well as a separate study or craft room. A second guestroom next to the outside braai room is perfect for unplanned visitors - or can be used as a studio (as the owner's daughter previously used it for). The house has both a cold room as well as a freezer room - located adjacent to a very large scullery and prepping room and close to the kitchen.
