OUDTSHOORN: Abundance splendour...
Meiringspoort is all about beauty, breath taking scenery and abundant splendour. The Swartberg mountains must be one of the most beautiful mountains in South Africa. Now, imagine a farm, 3238 hectares, spreading across these mountains, watching over Meiringspoort, offering lifestyle, opportunity and exquisite surrounds.
This is not just an opportunity to farm, this can be so much more.
It could be a beautiful holiday farm.
It can be a combination of farming and tourist activities.
Irrigatable lands are nestled in between the mountains and are equipped with the necessary pipelines all connected to the dams. At the moment 32 (of the 65) hectares are being planted with pastures for the Bonsmaras and the conditions of the cattle are proof of the quality of their food. Several dams provide water that has been stored directly from the mountain. The veld offers grazing as well and could easily accommodate a decent herd of cattle.
Grapes would flourish here and the setting of the farm lends it perfectly to the establishment of a boutique winery. The farm has been contoured and where once has been drylands could easily now become orchards, be it grapes or fruit or nuts or even olives.
A secluded waterfall, near the camping site, on the mountains offers a spectacular array of Fauna and Flora. Proteas, growing to an amazing two metres, honeybush and several indigenous species grow abundantly on the slopes and in the valley, even Kniphofia reflexa (red data specie)! Walking trails offer a good workout as well as the opportunity to stumble across rare finds such as bulbous plants, rare plants, shy animals and even the occasional cave. A river running through the property offers crystal clear waters, swimming opportunity as well as fertility. In the depths off the valley a feeling of total contentment and privacy enfolds you. You might feel like Adam or Eve might have felt in the Garden of Eden. On the mountain, you might feel like a super being, looking down on all the splendour of the surrounding nature.
A 360 degree view of nothing but beauty.
Imagine having a cluster of holiday cottages, surrounded by hectares of green pastures, on which animals would graze lazily, a dam on which to while the day away and breath taking views all around. Imagine having walking trails all over the farm as well a route or two for the quad bikers and to top it all horse riding trails as well. Nothing could beat the experience of discovering the farm`s beauty on horseback. Imagine having a boutique dairy/ cheese factory on the farm or a winery, or combining the works?
The farm boosts a main dwelling complete with 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a study, TV/living room, and dining room, a patio overlooking the magnificent beauty at ones feet, 3 carports, 2 stores and a greenhouse. Guest accommodation consists of 6 cottages sleeping 12 guests.
Opportunity abounds on this farm. This is, however not an ordinary farm and not just any piece of land. This is an once in a lifetime opportunity calling for a creative, out-of-the-box-thinking owner to develop, manage and nurture the farm as if it is a child.
You have to experience this farm to believe the opportunity, to see the potential and to feel the excitement growing as you start seeing the bright future this property holds, and then you have to cling to it while making the dream come true.
