This guest farm has it all!
With many features that makes it a very attractive option if you are looking for the opportunity to make a living while enjoying a rural lifestyle.
Spread over 240 hectares with pristine grassland and it is fully game fenced. The farm is divided by a dirt road, the lodge is located on the one side and the manager’s house on the other, ensuring privacy for everyone.
About the Lodge
The lodge can accommodate 10 people in four bedrooms and has a spacious living, dinning and kitchen area. The best feature is the large wooden deck, perfect for sundowners while overlooking the valley. There is also an outdoor, wood fire hot tub! Another great feature, the lodge runs very efficiently from solar power, with water supplied from a spring on the farm.
The Engine of the Farm
The “engine” of the farm is based around the manager’s house which has Eskom allowing for the commercial aspects of the farm to be carried out and has several outbuildings to support these activities.
Leisure activities includes fishing in any one of 3 dams, a registered shooting range, stables and wonderful walks or biking and two spacious aviaries) one of which was used for a vulture feeding scheme)
Farming opportunities are unusual but very appropriate for the area and includes 1,2 hectares of established lavender, 12 beehives that feed off the lavender and the nearby gum plantations, a “walipini” which is an underground greenhouse, acknowledged as being the most efficient growing environment. There is extra income potential from the game as well.
With all the farming opportunities and accommodation income from the lodge, there is great income potential.
The price does not include the furnishings and equipment but most of these items would be available as a separate negotiation and would enable the new owner to be up and running almost immediately!
