Magical cottage for sale in Bainskloof.
Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, indigenous fauna and flora, situated on the mountainside in the beautiful historic Bainskloof Pass, this delightful two bedroom stone and timber cottage awaits its lucky new owners!
Situated in a Private Nature Reserve and offering awe-inspiring vistas from both inside and out - even from the shower - your privacy will only be intruded on by the neighbouring lizards, birds, Genet, Mongoose, Rhebuck, and Klipspringer.
Enjoy cosy open fire evenings with snow-capped mountain peaks in winter, and swimming, canoeing and a picnic at a designated spot along the river down below - available to owners and their guests exclusively.
A gloriously peaceful and comfortable base, in picture-perfect surrounds, from which nature lovers can explore, canoe down the river, cycle and hike in the mountains - where bushman paintings and around 1300 species of Fynbos can be found.
An ideal mountain retreat, only one and a half hours from Cape Town, and a stone’s throw away from a number of top-class Wine Estates for that scrumptious Sunday Lunch!
