The forested, mountainous backdrop creates a dramatic setting for the town (which is within sight of no less than 16 waterfalls). This is where you’ll find the thickly wooded Boschberg Nature Reserve, with it’s popular hiking trails – including a 15km circular route to an overnight hut at the summit of the mountain. As the Route’s name suggest, Somerset East is an excellent bird-watching destination – other adventures include trout fishing on five local dams, as well as Rainbow and Brown trout fishing in the Glen Avon Waterfall pools, malaria free safari and hunting operations. The highly-rated 9-hole golf course is said to be one of the most beautiful in the country. Amongst the many noteworthy buildings in the town are the Old Wesleyan Chapel, which now houses the Somerset East Museum, and the officers’ mess, which now houses the largest collection of paintings by the renowned South African artist Walter Battiss. Annual events include the Castle Lager Biltong Festival, the Bruintjieshoogte Marathon, Bruintjieshoogte Cycle Tour (run between Pearston & Somerset East) and the Spring Rose & Flower show – Somerset East is known to produce some of the finest roses in the country.

This haven lies about 40 km from Somerset East, totally tucked away between surrounding hills and vast spaces of nothing but field. The fence, being kept in good condition, CAE certified, is an indication of what to expect but nothing prepared me for the sight just over the little hill. What a surprise! My first sight of the newly planted pomegranate orchid and the neatness of the whole set-up was a pleasant surprise. The homestead and outer buildings were all very well taken care of and the interior of the house made me wish that I could stay there! I could not wait, however to actually see the farm as this was by far one on the neatest places I have ever been on. Driving around on the open vehicle I could easily imagine a time before humans possessed everything. It was just magical to be able to almost able to touch the animals, magnificent beasts all in good condition. The field are in superb condition and spekboom was planted by the thousands all over the farm. Spekboom is one the most valuable plants this area has to offer and once these plants are grown there will be food in abundance for the animals. The animals grazing the farm are: 45 Kudu 20 Ribbok 30 Blesbok 50 Springbok 6 Giraffe 40 Impala 14 Rooihartebees 11 Nyala 6 Zebra 8 Waterbuck 6 Gemsbok 6 Sable Antelope 8 Duikers 10 Steenbokkies And they are all inclusive of the sale. Water is provided by three boreholes, fully equipped, and connected to tanks which on their turn provide water to drinking points, house and outer buildings. The house has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and huge, welcoming living rooms and a kitchen most women crave. The guest cottage has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a fully equipped abattoir on the farm and is ideal for processing meat during hunting season. Everything was taken into consideration during the lay-out of the abattoir. Yet again, I was very impressed. The pomegranate orchard was established in 2016 but prior to that the old lucern land had to be ripped over and over again by bulldozers, preparing the soil for the new journey ahead, growing pomegranates. The double line drip irrigation system had to be planned and installed with precision as this is a long-term investment. The dams, pumps and irrigation system added up to almost R1 600 000.00! The trees ,9000 of them, will start producing fruits in 2019.The plants were inspected by a professional recently and were declared in a very good healthy state. The fertilizer id automatically added directly to drip irrigation and you only need to switch the pump on or off. This is really a perfect example of living a lifestyle most people desire and opportunity. Opportunity not only relating to financial matters but to raising a family breathing fresh air, children running around safely and spending afternoons on the veranda watching the sun smiling gently down as he gently slides away. Do not let this opportunity pass. For sale at R 12,500,000 VAT exclusive Property Reference #: RL2854 Agent Details: Izelle du Plessis Agrisell 32 Ryneveld StreetStellenbosch7600
