Farm For Sale in Harrismith

Land Size: 947 hectares

947 Hectare Farm with loads of eco- tourism potential

This 947 ha farm lies at the foot of the Platberg near Harrismith with very good summer rainfall of 850 to 1000 mm average per annum.  It is easily accessible from the N3 near Harrismith, midway between Durban and Gauteng.  

Here you will find everything the Eastern Free State has to offer, with spectacular mountain views and an ideal potential for farming and ecotourism. 

The highest point of Platberg is at an altitude of 2395 m.  There is an abundance of water with lots of natural streams and fountains, (bottled water opportunity) as well as five dams of which the largest, 580 000 cubic metres, is suitable for irrigation, watersport and fishing activities.  

There is 150 - 200 ha arable land. (Well established eragrostis and smutsvinger grass.) 

The farm is sufficiently divided into grazing camps. The infrastructure is well maintained and the farm has the potential to be developed into an ecotourism destination. It may include activities such as hang gliding, cross country, mountain biking, abseiling, horse riding and hiking trails. In addition, it may be developed into a wedding venue or mountain resort with a cable car up the mountain.  

The four bed room house has magnificent views of the mountain. There are adequate outbuildings, consisting of a  large sandstone shed with covered storage and one big corrugated sheeted shed, a sheep pen and cattle handling facilities. 

As an added bonus, there is a large double storey stone rondavel (approximately 215 m2) overlooking the dam. It has a large cosy fireplace, outside braai area and an open plan living and dining area, creating a homely atmosphere.

There is also a small separate storage room.

This is definitely one of the most beautiful farms in the Harrismith area.

VAT must still be added to the advertised price.
