About this listing
THE OLIVE FARM
This 9.4 ha farm 2km from Franschhoek, 18km from Stellenbosch and 22km from Paarl, with 650m of road frontage on the R45, is the ideal property for the visionary entrepreneur. It has viable commercial prospects that can capitalise on the tourist market. The property is accessed from the main route to Franschhoek (the R45) by three entrances, giving various development options.
Good alluvial soils support the 4 ha olive grove which consists of Mission, Manzanilla and Frantoio and yields between 8 - 13 tons with an established market in place. Furthermore there is a 2.8ha vineyard consisting of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc that yields around 46 tons delivered to two wineries. The new owner is free to continue with these agreements. Irrigation for both the olive grove and vineyard is in place with a borehole delivering up to 15 000 litres per hour.

The historic main house with high beamed ceilings dates back to 1920. It comprises 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en-suite), kitchen, lounge and dining room. An additional room leading off the back stoep is being utilised as an office. A loft spanning the full length of the house gives room for expansion.
In close proximity to the main house you will find a characterful barn of 15m x 3m dating back to 1905. Adjacent to the barn is a spacious garage and stable. A smaller outbuilding within the barn's courtyard is being used as additional lockup storage. Further to the outbuildings there are two labourers' cottages, each made up of 2 semi-detached units.
All the buildings are set amongst mature trees with beautiful mountain views, giving the setting an ambience of relaxation.
