Gloriously scenic 511 hectare game farm with its own mountain!
Offering plentiful game (see detail below), nature at its finest, absolute peace, tranquillity, and spectacular views, you can choose the perfect spot for your home or getaway cottage!
- Land size: 511ha (70 hectare prepared for planting crops should you choose to do so - approximately 150ha mountain).
- Water: Old unused borehole, can be tested and restored if feasible, or have a new one drilled – also possibility of sharing spring water with adjoining property (same owner).
- Some 4x4 tracks to the top of the mountain.
- Fenced with 1.9m game fencing – small section will have to be fenced if required (adjoining a smallholding which is open to the game at the moment – same owner).
- A ‘dead-end’ farm, i.e. no thoroughfare
- INDIGENOUS GAME on the farm - have lived, undisturbed, in this magnificent haven for at least two decades: Steenbok, Duiker, Klipspringer, Aardvark, Honey Badger; Bat Eared Fox, Genet, Baboon, Hare, Porcupine, Mongoose, Caracal, African Wild Cat, Leopard (visits from time to time), Black Eagle, Owl, and a large variety of indigenous and migrant bird species.
- OTHER GAME: A strong herd of 20-25 Eland, some Springbok, three Black Wildebeest.
- It's good to note that the recent drought did not affect the varied vegetation on this farm – none of the game had to be fed throughout this time and all are flourishing.
- No land claims or security issues.
- DISTANCES AND NEARBY ATTRACTIONS:
- 19km to Redelinghuys – known as the Potato Capital of South Africa with some beautiful old Victorian homes, and tremendous 4x4 trails just outside the town (also great for basic supplies).
- 29km to Elands Bay - Mecca to surfers and known as the ultimate ‘chill zone’ (various shops and hotel for those Sunday lunches while watching the enormous waves which challenge and delight every surfer).
- 56km to Piketberg (‘big’ shopping, a variety of restaurants, superb wine farm, farmers cooperative, etc).
- 70km to Lamberts Bay – the small fishing village which is connected to Bird Island – one of only six sites world-wide where the blue-eyed Cape Gannet breeds – a never to be forgotten sight – and it’s the only breeding site easily accessible to the public.
- Less than 100km will take you to the heart of the magnificent Cederberg Wilderness area to ‘another world’ of ancient mountains “burnt orange by iron oxide, which dominate the landscape. Jagged sandstone rock formations, like the Maltese Cross and the Wolfberg Arch, and ancient San and Khoi rock art”.
- 190km from Cape Town (only 12km dirt road to the farm).
