Farm for sale in Paarl
Perfectly located in the foothills of the Klein Drakenstein mountains, a mere 40 minutes from Cape Town, this 83ha farm is the proverbial "one in a million".
Upon entering the gates, a stately tree lined drive leads to the immaculately presented manor house and surrounding outbuildings. The homestead, which was once the home of a former state president, occupies a majestic position on the farm, offering unrivaled mountain and valley views with a true sense of place. Gracious and intimate, the home comprises four bedrooms, three bathrooms, study, dressing room, entrance hall, lounge, dining room, kitchen, scullery and pantry. Located beneath the house is a well-appointed, temperature controlled wine tasting cellar.
Spacious covered outdoor entertainment and alfresco dining areas surround the home on three sides. A large pool and braai area perfectly located on the eastern side of the house invites one to soak up the African sun. A free standing poolroom incorporates a wonderfully private bedroom en-suite.
A "Long barn" located adjacent to the homestead has been thoughtfully remodeled to incorporate a further six bedrooms and five bathrooms, providing ample accommodation for guests or a foundation for a guest house venture. One end of the long barn serves as the estate manager's accommodation and comprises two bedrooms, kitchen, study, lounge and a private patio.
To the rear of the homestead a formal kitchen garden provides seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs.
The farm is planted to approximately 14ha of wine grapes, 2ha olives, 3½ ha citrus. Ample irrigation water is drawn from two farm dams which are fed by mountain streams and a number of perennial fountains. All the vines are under drip irrigation with the citrus and olive under micro irrigation.
A large farm shed accommodates all the necessary farm equipment.
Being surrounded by exceptional natural beauty, peace and tranquillity, this farm will rejuvenate your soul.
