GORGEOUS 1890 COTTAGE ON SMALLHOLDING

Situated in the most picturesque area of the Sandveld, this is a rare, serendipitous find!

With a beautifully restored and charming cottage built in 1890 on 15ha of land, spectacular views, a natural spring, shed, Rock Art, a sparkling pool and entertainment area, plus some young Olive trees, it has no equal!

In short, a superb ‘gentleman’s estate’ far from the madding crowd. An ideal getaway, or … Get away from it all and stay!

Indisputably that rural piece of African splendour nature lovers dream of ...

  • 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”.
