This is a unique opportunity for a select family to acquire shares in an extraordinary farm nestled on the edge of the escarpment in the mist belt area. This best kept secret of the Dullstroom area is ideal for the serious trout fisherman, nature lover or birder and for families wishing to spend precious, quality time together. The choice of eight trout dams and an additional eight weirs ensure this is a trout fishermans idyllic retreat. Two perennial streams that originate and run through the farm, including a magnificent waterfall, ensure an abundance of water. These fishing waters are exceptionally well managed and responsibly stocked.

Accommodation is comfortable and secure set amongst an exquisite variety of mature trees, tree ferns and other indigenous flora. The shareholders have the use of a timber home in picturesque surroundings, accommodating at least eight people, in the main house and annex and overlooking one of these streams and two small weirs. There are two separate income-generating houses, Fishermans House and Fishermans Cottage, available to a discerning syndicate of trout fishermen and their families over the weekends. The syndicate members have leased the houses for many years, enjoying not only the outstanding fishing available, also the peace and tranquillity the farm has to offer. This income contributes towards the general upkeep of the farm and helps to maintain monthly levies at an affordable rate for the shareholders.

A manager, who lives close by, takes care of the day to day running of the farm whilst the stocking of the dams and weirs is undertaken by one of the shareholders.
