A 130 hectare farm in a scenic environment in the Paardenberg region just outside Paarl and Malmesbury
Ideally situated with easy tarred road access from the R302 towards Malmesbury or Slent road fourway crossing into Vryguns road. Most of the farm is unplanted at present with small scale vegetable, fruit and cattle but certainly open to a diverse range of farming, accommodation or certainly a combination thereof. Consensus is that a dedicated feedlot for cattle could be a highly profitable business, but that would require some extra investments for infrastructure. With the current resources, about 50 cows can be accommodated easily.
The previous owner also had a few hectares of wine grapes. The farm also includes a 25 x 35 meter double volume shed of which a section is dedicated to a manager's house. This dwelling has two large bedrooms, an office, kitchen, bathroom with shower and toilet, a lounge and an outside porch with perfect views over the surrounding mountains, including Table Mountain.
There are three worker's cottages, of which two are permanent dwellings and one wooden house. These cottages have water, electricity and solar geysers. Some smaller buildings, including a few pig sties. Water is from a borehole, which delivers enough water for domestic purposes and the irrigation of the vegetable gardens. Further there are three ground dams, but because of the inconsistent rain the last few seasons. Ons of the dams have a fair amount of water but normally winter rainfall will be enough to fill all three dams. Electricity is through two three phase transformers, one in the farmyard and one by the dam to lend power to the pump. Should one want to drill for more water, a flow of 18 000 litre per hour is indicated by the SUDEM 20 m model.
