Lifestyle Cottage

Gorgeous quaint cottage for sale on one of the most beautiful stretches of land in our country, offering a lifestyle like no other ...

Located on a 791 hectare Nature Reserve this stunning little abode offers an incredible lifestyle. The magnificent farm, recently rezoned, Incorporates a 100 hectare eco- village and reserve, where food forests will prevail (see photos of some already established).

Like-minded folk will not only be able to sustain themselves and others, but will be co-owners of, and have access to the rest of the Reserve, where beautiful mountainous land and rivers have been set aside for conservation, as well as – ultimately - a Cultural Centre, Yoga Centre and “Land Art” events.

With the focus on holistic living, co-owners of the Reserve can also choose to be part of the Biodiversity Centre where eco-living and entrepreneurial skills will be transferred to individuals to take back into their communities. The latter will cross over economic and social divides, spread awareness of eco-living and the importance of self empowerment encapsulated in permaculture principles, i.e. protecting and living sustainably in our fragile ecosystem, live with and as an extension of nature, wholesome food, best use of (minimal) water, using soil optimally, using and valuing diversity, eco-friendly shelter, alternative energy sources, etc.

Some may choose to buy the cottage as a holiday/weekend home from home, which will, similarly, offer a phenomenal opportunity to live in, and with nature – all the while drinking in the wondrous gifts bestowed upon us by mother earth, and learning how to cherish yet utilise such gifts without harming the environment.

A perfect home (or retreat) for nature dwellers, bird enthusiasts, hikers, cyclists, artists, writers, amateur plant taxonomists - heavenly also for botanists - and those simply needing to get away from the hustle, bustle, and veritable poisons of modern-day living.

(Two more cottages and land for sale on the Reserve - info available on request.)
