About this listing
Currently operating as an equestrian stud farm, this 27ha property is a veritable oasis at the foot of Paarl Mountain. Slightly away from the main route, it is accessed via a short drive down a dirt road. On entering, you will find pastures and post-and-rail paddocks for approximately 30 horses and for the same number of yearlings and foals. There are 27 stables, a 1.5km working track threading between the paddocks (700m of this is a gallop), a lungeing ring and 100m x 50m sand arena.
A valuable feature of this farm is its abundance of water. The property has 21ha of registered water rights from the Berg River scheme, a borehole supplying approximately 2 000 litres of drinking water per hour as well as a large dam with an electric pump for irrigation. There is also a second, smaller dam.

A luxurious, thatched homestead dates back to 1873 and stands tall in the shade of mature oak trees. It comprises 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (three en-suite) and an open plan kitchen and family room which leads onto a sparkling pool through fold-away glass doors. A covered outdoor entertainment area with built-in braai / fireplace is an extension of the kitchen. The house is surrounded by lawns and shrubs and overlooks some of the paddocks.
Further to the main house there is a 3-bedroomed, one bathroom manager's cottage and two general purpose sheds. Staff accommodation is situated across the road, some distance from the main house.
